Congratulations are in order for actor Wilmer Valderrama and his model fiancée Amanda Pacheco. The couple just announced they’re expecting their first child.

Valderrama, from “That ’70s Show” and “NCIS,” and Pacheco got engaged Jan. 1, 2020. They made their baby news public on social media on Dec. 21 with some non-traditional maternity photos, seen below on Valderrama’s Twitter account.

The #ItsJustUs3Now hashtag he is using is a play on the one Valderrama and Pacheco used after getting engaged, #ItsJustUsNow.

Friend of the couple and actress Sophie Turner added a “Yesssssss” comment to Pacheco’s sharing the maternity photos on Instagram. And in a funny spin on the congratulations, TV producer and author T.J. Jefferson said, “Wait … and nobody told me??? We just had lunch last week. 😂” To which Pacheco joked back, “hey it’s not my fault you believed me that my belly was so big from eating all that chicken before we even ate it hahaha🤰🏼”

For the Valderrama-Pacheco baby’s first professional photoshoot, photographer Michael Muller captured the future parents standing in front of a vintage car with colored smoke creating a moody backdrop.

“Baby time,” Muller captioned one of the photos, which he shared on his own Instagram account. “@wilmervalderrama you two are going to be amazing loving parents. Honor to document these special days.”

Valderrama, 40, also replied to Muller’s Instagram share of the portraits, saying, “I am so grateful, thank you for helping me tell the world I will be a father. We are family for life! I love you Michael!”

Muller perhaps also posted a bonus photo of mom-to-be Pacheco ahead of the official announcement when he shared a photo of a pregnant woman in water, her face not visible, on Instagram. Pacheco, 30, is a certified PADI Divemaster, and Muller is known for his shark photography.

Pacheo and Valderrama have been linked as a couple since April 2019 and frequently share photos together on Instagram. Valderrama proposed on New Years Day 2020 on a rock outcropping at La Jolla Beach that has special meaning to Pacheco — she says it’s where she feels closest to her late mother, who died of ovarian cancer.

Best wishes to the expectant parents!
