Candice Accola of "The Vampire Diaries" is expecting her first child with new hubby Joe King.

The actress and the Fray rocker announced the news on Instagram on Monday, sharing a snapshot of her doodled-on baby bump and King's matching outfit.

"Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly," the 28-year-old wrote, captioning a family portrait of herself with King and his two daughters, Ava and Elise, whom he had during his first marriage.

"Baby King on the way!!!!" added the musician, 35. "So proud to welcome this new life into the world with my beautiful wife and daughters. I truly am a lucky man & dad."

Front and center was Accola's growing belly, which was adorned with a big heart surrounded by colorful letters spelling out "baby" and sweet messages. King wore a T-shirt emblazoned with "Superdad."

Accola's rep declined to comment on how far along the actress is in her pregnancy.

The CW star met King through former costar Nina Dobrev, who introduced them at DirecTV's 2012 Celebrity Beach Bowl. They got engaged in Italy in May 2013 and wed in New Orleans last October in a French Quarter-themed celebration.
