Congratulations are in order for A.J. Buckley and Abigail Ochse.
The CSI: NY actor, 35, and his fiancée are expecting their first child. The mom-to-be, an oncology nurse, is five months pregnant with a girl, Us Weekly reports.
The engaged pair “look forward to welcoming their new addition in early 2014,” his rep states.
The actor tweeted the news on Tuesday. “I’m having a baby girl!!! Happiest day of my life,” he wrote, captioning an ultrasound photo of his daughter-to-be. Later, he added: “Thank you for all the kind wishes! So excited to be a dad.”
The actor proposed marriage on New Year’s Eve, 2012, while on vacation with friends and family in Hawaii. He popped the question under a tree in Turtle Bay at Napili Beach, where the couple had left some of his late father’s ashes the year before.
A.J. will next be seen in the movie North of Hell, costarring Katherine Heigl and Patrick Wilson.
