A massive congratulations to her.

Former Glee actress Jenna Ushkowitz has announced that she and her husband David Stanley are expecting their first child together.

Jenna told her social media followers that she is expecting a baby girl, and she’s due in June.

Taking to Instagram with a gorgeous black and white photo, Jenna wrote: “Our hearts are so full… Baby Girl Stanley coming in June.”

Jenna was then flooded with kind comments and well-wishes from her former Glee cast-mates.

Jacob Artist, who played Jake Puckerman on the show, simply wrote, “!!!!”, as well as a heart emoji and the pregnant lady emoji.

Kevin McHale, who portrayed Jenna’s on-screen best friend Artie, conveyed his emotions with a series of crying face emojis.

Max Adler, who played Dave Karofsky on the series, wrote: “congrats!!!!!”

Heather Morris, who played cheerleader Brittany S. Pierce, posted Jenna’s announcement to her own story and wrote that she is “just over the moon” for Jenna and David.

Jenna married her partner David at a small, intimate ceremony in July 2021.

She shared a photo from the special day to her Instagram on New Year’s Eve and reflected on the year she had.

She said: “One of the best/most memorable years to date with so many milestones, while being one of the hardest years of our lives as a collective.

“I’m choosing to focus on the good today, as we move forward into 2022 with the incredible tribe we have built, made up of support and love. Here’s to brighter times ahead and to slowly creeping into 2022. please be good to us.”

2021 also saw David and Jenna purchase a new house, and they shared the good news in December.

Jenna wrote: “We’re moving!!!! We bought a house and we are so excited to start this new chapter. We’re about to embark on a journey of moving + lots of home organizing and renovations and I’m taking you with us!”
