'Felicity' Star Russell Pregnant


Felicity is going to be a mom.

Actress Keri Russell, who played the title character on the WB series "Felicity," is pregnant, several news outlets report. The baby is due in the summer; it will be the first child for the 30-year-old Russell and her fiance, Shane Deary.

The couple got engaged last year but haven't set a wedding date.

Russell co-starred in "Mission: Impossible III" -- which was directed by "Felicity co-creator J.J. Abrams -- last year. Other recent credits include "The Upside of Anger" and the TNT miniseries "Into the West." She's still best-known, however, for playing college student Felicity Porter on "Felicity," which ran from 1998-2002 on The WB and earned her a Golden Globe nomination in 1999.

Her latest film, "Waitress," premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival.
