According to E! Online, after going public with their relationship in July 2013 and getting married in late August this year, the couple is ready to welcome their first child.

The new baby will join half-brother Bronx, 6, born from her previous marriage to Fall Out Boy frontman Pete Wentz.

The news should come as no surprise. In November, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 actor told E! Online that he and his wife were planning to start a family.

“I would like [having kids]. As many as possible!” Ross told the publication. “I got married, I have new music and I’m part of Hunger Games. It’s been a great year.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
