It looks like life really does imitate art, at least in this case! According to People magazine, The Americans co-stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, who play married parents on the suspenseful spy drama, are expecting a baby together.

"They're thrilled," said a source.

And um, I'm thrilled to imagine that the sexy duo is as sizzling off screen as they are on screen, but maybe that's just because my life doesn't involve high-adrenaline adventure like the Jennings' does.

The couple has not officially confirmed their baby news, and in fact, seems to prefer keeping a low profile when it comes to their personal lives. They've never even admitted to being a couple!

Assuming another baby really is on the way for the actress, this will be the third child for the 39-year-old, who is already a mama to daughter Willa Lou, 3, and son River, 7. (Love her baby name choices!)

In the past, the soon-to-be-mom-of-three said this about being a working mom: "I like working hard, but my life outside of my career is equally important to me. Maybe I'm not ambitious enough, but I'm just as interested in my friends and my relationship with my family."

Well, I wouldn't exactly say the former Felicity star's "lack of ambition" has held her back at all.

Russell also admitted becoming a mom has changed her; I'd say, for the better: "You instantly become less selfish. You can't be the biggest person in the world anymore — they are. It really grounds you."
