That '70s Show alum Topher Grace is going to be a dad, as his wife of just over a year, Ashley, is pregnant


Tad Hamilton? More like Dad Hamilton!

Topher Grace and Ashley Hinshaw Grace are expecting their first child. The couple was spotted headed to lunch at Sweet Butter Kitchen on July 15— with a baby belly along for the ride.

Hinshaw Grace later confirmed the news on her Instagram account, writing, “When you’re 6½ months pregnant and someone else does your hair/makeup/wardrobe and makes you feel like a princess for the first time in a whiiiiile.”

Reps for the actors did not respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

Grace, 39, tied the knot with the True Detective actress, 28, in the Santa Barbara area of California in May 2016, a little over two years after they began dating and 16 months after they were engaged.

The former That ’70s Show actor joked to PEOPLE in August 2015 about how his then-bride-to-be had taken on the brunt of the wedding-planning responsibilities.

“I have no part in that!” he said. “That is all her. I know to show up, and I know which date.”

Although Grace had to miss the July 2015 wedding of his former castmates Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, he told PEOPLE the following month that he is “so happy for them.”

“Imagine two of your great high school friends, who weren’t dating in high school but were buddies and you’re all in the same friend group and they grow up and they fall in love, get married, have a kid,” he said.

Aside from a two-episode stint on True Detective, the mom-to-be has appeared on True Blood and stars on the Crackle series StartUp. Grace — known also for his roles in Spider-Man 3, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! and the recent Brad Pitt-led War Machine — has three more films lined up for a 2017 release.

E! was first to report the happy news.
