They tied the knot less than a year ago in a romantic barefoot ceremony on the beaches of Hawaii.
And now actress Natalie Zea is already expecting her first child with husband Travis Schuldt, who she met over a decade ago on the set of the soap opera Passions.
‘Yes, I am pregnant,’ the Justified star told DailyMail.com exclusively on Thursday at the Too Late premiere in Los Angeles. The blonde beauty glowed as she showed off her bump in her plunging coral-colored dress by Solace London.

‘They are due in November,’ a close friend of the beauty – who recently wrapped The Following with Kevin Bacon – tells DailyMail.com.
‘It’s a great time for them and they are very happy. They are looking forward to being parents. It’s going to be a very busy year for the couple.’
The Other Guys actress dropped a big hint on Tuesday when she posted a photo of her lavish breakfast – which included friend eggs, Canadian bacon, sausages, toast, beans, a grilled tomato and berries – while on vacation in London. In her caption she discussed her ‘weight gain.’

When Zea last hit a red carpet, in May for the TBS upfronts, she did not appear pregnant.
The former model was at the event to plug her new show The Detour with Daily Show vet Jason Jones, which starts filming in Georgia in July.
The Texan beauty looked like a breath of fresh air in a one-shoulder asymmetrical white dress. An extra panel of cloth helped conceal any bump.

Her new series The Detour is a scripted comedy from Jones and his wife Samantha Bee.
According to Deadline, the series is about written by Jones and Bee based on their own experiences with family getaways.
In the pilot, the family takes a road trip to Key West. Jones plays dad Nate, who joins wife Robin (Zea) and two young kids for a 24-hour road trip to the Florida town. Their vacation then takes a ‘hellish turn.’

Zea has also starred in Californication with David Duchovny and Justified with Timothy Olyphant.
The Following, about a pack of serial killers, was canceled in May. The drama starred Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy, James Purefoy as Joe Carroll and Zea as Claire Matthews.
The show had three seasons and was created by Kevin Williamson of Dawson’s Creek fame.
The Following got off to a great start in 2013 with high ratings, but viewers fell off. The series was known for its graphic violence and shock murders.

Bacon played a former FBI agent who put killer Carroll in jail.
Natalie got her start on Passions and then went on to star in Eyes and Dirty Sexy Money.
In January Zea talked to Issues Magazine and revealed her quirky side.
She listed the late Gene Kelly as one of the actors she would most like to work with and Singing In The Rain as one of her favorite films.

As far as how she made it in Hollywood the star said she ‘pounded the pavement, starved and clawed my way to the middle.’
But Zea put the sarcasm on hold to talk about her passion. ‘I get very worked up about women in cinema and television. How we are portrayed and how we’re perceived by the public, both on and off screen.
‘In 2014, we’re still grossly under represented and I’m not sure why that is,’ she said.
‘It’s my desire to see myself and my peers reflected back at me on my TV and film screens. Creating one’s own material is the only way to fix it. That’s what I am working towards.’
Natalie can also be seen in the thriller Grey Lady with Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane later this year and Too Late with John Hawkes.
