The 33-year-old announced she was pregnant via Instagram, by posting a photo of her dog Kitty wearing an outfit bearing the words, “My mom is having a baby and all I get is this silly shirt”.

It was captioned with the words: “Kitty doesn’t seem as excited as we are about this … I’m pregnant!!!! My husband and I are thrilled and so thankful.”

Chabert and Nehdar married just over two years ago, and the former Party of Five actress described her husband as “my best friend and love of my life”.

Chabert rose to fame in 1994 with her role as Claudia Salinger in Party of Five, alongside fellow teen star Jennifer Love Hewitt. She went on to be a huge star of the late ’90s and noughties, voicing  Eliza Thornberry in the animated series The Wild Thornberrys and landing roles in a string of movies such as Daddy Day Care, Lost in Space, Not Another Teen Movie and Black Christmas.

However, it was her role of the ditzy Gretchen Wieners in the cult teen movie Mean Girls that really made her a household name.

The baby is due later this year - and we're sure he or she will be completely adorable.
