Boy, that was fast!
Just a month after saying “I do” at her secret (well, it’s not so secret anymore) marriage with Lawrence Faulborn, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Kelli Giddish announced that she’s already expecting her first baby.

The freshly wedded pair tied the knot at a beach house in New Smyrna Beach, Florida on June 20th. Their intimate wedding in paradise was only attended by 12 of their closest friends and family.

“Kelli, Larry and their families were a joy to work with and with a beautiful array of fresh flowers, burlap and rustic charm, the setup and wedding was gorgeous,” praised the wedding planners.
The SVU star joins her fellow castmate Ice T—who is also expecting a baby with his wife Coco— as members of the “just conceived a baby club”. Coco’s pregnancy was announced just hours prior to Kelli’s.
Cheers and adulations rained down upon Giddish after her pregnancy broadcast. Even her boss decided to join in on the fun. The surprising news of the two pregnancies made NBC executive producer Warren Leight dub SVU as the most fertile show on earth.
“@FINALLEVEL and @cocosworld having a baby. @TheKelliGiddish and L Faulborn having a baby. #SVU — most fertile show on Earth. Congrats all!!” Leight tweeted.

Giddish will continue to play as Junior Detective Amanda Rollins in the long-running Law & Order: SVU together with Ice T, Hargitay, and Peter Scanavino. The show is set to return for its 17th season in September.
