Congratulations are in order — Kirsten Dunst is reportedly pregnant with her first child! A source revealed to Us Weekly that the actress and her fiancé Jesse Plemons are going to be parents.

The couple met on the set of “Fargo,” where they played husband and wife on-screen. At first, Dunst thought she may have been developing feelings for Plemons simply because they were working together — but no — it was the real deal!

“You know when you work together you sometimes think, ‘Oh, it’s because of that’ that you are developing feelings. It was a year later that we got together,” she told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on “Live with Kelly & Ryan.”

Rumors of their engagement started in January of 2017 when she was seen wearing an engagement ring at the Golden Globes. Months later, the actress finally started sharing more details!

Dunst admitted to Jimmy Fallon that she was actually a little sick when Plemons popped the question. But she doesn’t see that as a bad thing. “That’s good—in sickness and in health, you know,” she joked with Fallon.

She also noted that she liked how their love started as an on-screen romance and then blossomed into what it is in real life. “We became really good friends first,” she told Fallon. Which made her realize, “like, wow, I really love this person. I love hanging out with him.”

Aww! How sweet.

Since they met on the set of “Fargo,” the TV show will always hold a special place in their hearts.

“I’ll name my kid ‘Fargo’ Season 2,” she joked with the late-night host.

There aren’t many details about her pregnancy just yet, as the couple is notoriously good at keeping things under wraps. Us Weekly’s source did divulge that they’re planning on getting married in Austin, Texas in the spring.

Kirsten Dunst also shared that she and her fiancé have been making the wedding plans together — using none other than Pinterest!

“It’s really fun, and because we create it together from the beginning, it’s a really nice thing to do together. It’s going to be so personal and fun. We’re having a really good time,” Dunst said on “Live with Kelly & Ryan.”

Here’s to hoping everything turns out just as this couple imagined!
