Baby on the Way for Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

Baby on the Way for Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

Barry King/FilmMagic

First comes marriage — and soon a baby carriage!

Ashlee Simpson is expecting her first child with her husband, singer/actor Evan Ross, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Simpson, 30, is already mom to 6-year-old Bronx Mowgli, her son with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

The couple, who dated for over a year, tied the knot in August during a family-focused ceremony in Connecticut, where Simpson’s big sister, Jessica, served as matron of honor.

After their bohemian-style nuptials, they were spotted soaking up the sun on their honeymoon in Bali.

“I’m so in love and we’ve got amazing things going on. We inspire each other,” The Hunger Games:Mockingjay star told PEOPLE of Simpson in 2013.

Ross, 26, the son of legendary singer Diana Ross, recently released the music video for his single, “How to Live Alone” — starring his newlywed wife! — but it’s clear he’ll soon be singing a different tune.

E! News was the first to report the pregnancy.

Each week, Koenig would draw audiences deeper into the possible loopholes in the case by sifting through potential clues (court testimony, cell phone records and rumours) with experts and witnesses.Most compelling were her conversations with Syed himself, who gave 40-hours of phone interviews from the Maryland correctional facility where he is serving his life sentence.Serial followed the 15-year-old Baltimore murder case involving 18-year-old Hae Min Lee and her boyfriend Adnan Syed, seen here, who was convicted of of killing her.

By November, Apple flagged Serial as the fastest podcast to reach 5 million downloads in iTunes history.Each week, followers poured over the episode’s new details online, and argued over Syed’s guilt or innocence, or Koenig’s alleged lack of objectivity on a well-populated subreddit.But the show’s most obsessed will soon be feeling the pangs of withdrawal now that that final episode has released.
