Eilzabeth Berkley is pregnant.

The 39-year-old actress is expecting her first child with her artist and clothing designer husband Greg Lauren, and the couple are ''so excited'' about their forthcoming arrival.

She told People.com: ''In life there are moments you cherish forever and this is one of them.

''Greg and I are so excited to be expecting our first child this summer. We couldn't be more grateful and overjoyed.''

The blonde beauty - who played Jesse Spano in US sitcom 'Saved By The Bell', which aired between 1989 and 1993 - tied the knot to Greg, who is the nephew of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in 2003.

When Elizabeth gives birth she will not be the only former 'Saved By The Bell' star to have started a family as Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) and Mark-Paul Gossellar (Zack Morris).
