Grey’s Anatomy star Kelly McCreary and her husband Pete Chatmon are to become parents for the first time.
The TV star, 39, announced the couple’s exciting news via Instagram, sharing they are ‘thrilled’ to be growing their family.
With beaming smiles, the actor and director cuddled up for a selfie, pointing to Kelly’s necklace that reads ‘Hot Mama.’
Also posing with her pregnancy test, Kelly wrote: ‘Surprise! WE’RE HAVING A BABY! Pete and I are thrilled to be growing our family, and to share the news with all of you!’
Pete, 44, also shared the happy news on his Instagram, with the caption: ‘This Is My Favorite Monday Post Of All Time. So Excited To Grow Our Family And Add Dad To My Resume. (sic)’
Kelly, best known for her role as Dr. Maggie Pierce in ABC’s hit drama series, also spoke to People about her baby joy.
‘I actually screamed in shock when I saw pregnant. I mean, I just wasn’t expecting it,’ she said.
‘I had really been mentally and emotionally preparing myself for the possibility that it might take us some time to conceive. So, I was genuinely shocked.’
Kelly, who met her husband on the set of Grey’s Anatomy, gushed that Pete is the ‘best’ at supporting her as they venture into this new chapter in their lives.
She shared that she feels ‘lucky’ to have Pete, whom she married in 2019, be so ‘eager’ to start a family.
‘Because we are doing it together, we will be able to roll with it. And because this child is so desired and so loved, whatever happens will be the right thing, and we’ll make it work.’
The mum-to-be says she’s keen to learn as much as possible about parenthood, and has approached some of her Grey’s Anatomy castmates for advice on navigating her pregnancy whilst working.
McCreary says Caterina Scorsone, Chandra Wilson and Ellen Pompeo, who she’s grown close to during her eight seasons on the show, have been ‘tremendously helpful, supportive resources.’
Kelly is currently filming season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy, which returns later in September.
