Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick are expecting their first child. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model--now an actress--and the former pro tennis player will become parents this coming fall.

A rep for Brooklyn Decker made an official announcement to the media.

“I’m happy to confirm Brooklyn and Andy are expecting a new addition to their family in the autumn of this year,” Jesse Parker Stowell said.

Brooklyn Decker announced the exciting news herself, via a post on her Instagram account.

"So this happened... #the3ofus," she captioned the photo.

Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker tied the knot six years ago. Their experience at parenthood thus far comes at the hands--or paws--of their two bulldogs, named Billie Jean King and Bob Costas.

About a year ago, Brooklyn Decker told People magazine they were thinking about having a family one day.

“I love kids. I definitely want kids,” she said. “I just have to figure out the timing of that.”

Brooklyn Decker will soon star in a new TV show that premieres on May 8th. She will actually be playing a mom on Grace and Frankie. The show will air on Netflix.

Andy Roddick is throwing his annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala on Monday. Elton John--who performed at the couple's wedding--will perform at the gala.

Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick must be incredibly excited over their foray into parenthood--the human kind this time.

The couple is likely receiving congratulations from friends and fans from all over the world.
