The Good Wife’s Jess Weixler Announces She’s Expecting a Baby with Husband Hamish Brocklebank

There’s a baby on the way for Jess Weixler and her husband Hamish Brocklebank!

On Monday, the 37-year-old actress announced she’s expecting her first child in a very relatable — and funny — way.

“Just had some pizza ❤🌱(6 months),” Weixler captioned an Instagram post, joking that her baby bump is really just a food baby.

In the shot, The Good Wife star, dressed in all black, can be seen cradling her pregnant belly in a field full of apple trees.

A rep for Weixler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Weixler and Brocklebank, a British businessman, got married in 2015 during a stunning ceremony on the beach.

For the nuptials, Weixler wore an off-white, Grecian-style tulle gown and wore her hair in waves.

Rather than going the traditional route, Brocklebank wore a coral colored suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

Both opted to go barefoot for the sandy festivities.

“A lot of love on that beach,” Weixler captioned a photo from their wedding day.

PEOPLE’s Jess Cagle Takes You Behind the Scenes of Oscars Sunday

It’s finally Oscar Sunday, and PEOPLE is taking fans right to the center of the action.

Jess Cagle, Editor-in-Chief of PEOPLE and Editorial Director, Time Inc. Style & Entertainment Group, is prepping for ABC’s official Oscar pre-show, Oscars Opening Ceremony: Live from the Red Carpet. The pre-show, which is hosted by Good Morning America anchors Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Michael Strahan, will feature Cagle as a contributor alongside Marie Claire‘s Nina Garcia and Vanity Fair’s Krista Smith.

Of course, one can’t head to the biggest night in movies without a full stomach. Cagle and his date (and partner) Matt Whitney, writer for the TV show Timeless, grab a bite to eat in West Hollywood before heading to the Dolby Theatre for the night’s festivities.

Cagle also offered a view of the cloudy skies above Hollywood, where rain is predicted to threaten the awards show’s red carpet. Luckily, he shared yesterday that a rain structure is already in place to keep celebrities (and their fashion choices) protected from any unfavorable weather conditions.

After a good meal, the final step before heading to the Academy Awards is looking the part. Cagle assisted Whitney in getting picture-perfect for the red carpet, giving a tutorial on how to successfully tie a bow tie.

Oscars Opening Ceremony: Live from the Red Carpet airs on ABC at 7 p.m. ET. The Oscars themselves will air at 8:30 p.m. ET and The Oscars: All Access live stream from the red carpet and backstage will begin at 7 p.m. ET.
