Actress Rebecca Gayheart is expecting her first child with her actor husband Eric Dane, according to U.S. reports.
The stars have been in the spotlight in recent months following sensational tabloid reports about their sex life and alleged drug taking.
But Gayheart and Dane now have happier news to report - according to Star magazine, the actress is pregnant after turning to fertility specialists for help with starting a family.
A source says, "Rebecca had some pretty bad morning sickness, but now she's more than three months along and in great spirits."
Earlier this year (Feb09), Dane admitted he was eager to become a dad and hinted the couple was seeking specialist advice to increase the odds of having a baby.
He told U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "We’re currently working on that. It’s funny because you get the doctors involved and they call you and it’s like, 'In eight days I’ll have to put in some work. I will be very busy and I probably shouldn’t schedule anything else.'”
Gayheart, 38, and Dane, 36, wed in 2004.
The couple was recently caught up in a saucy video scandal, when footage of them sharing a bath and a bed with a former beauty queen leaked online.
