Keri Russell’s latest covert operation has maternity written all over it: “The Americans” star is reportedly expecting her third child -- her first with costar-boyfriend Matthew Rhys.

The “Felicity” alum is said to be four months along, according to Us Weekly, which was first to report the pregnancy Wednesday. However, reps for Russell and Rhys did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for comment.

Still, a friend of the couple told People that “they’re thrilled” about the baby.


Russell, 39, is already mom to son River, 8, and daughter Willa, 4, whom she had with ex-husband Shane Deary. The couple split in 2013 after being married for seven years. It will be the first child for Welsh actor Rhys, 41.

The costars play married spies -- and parents! -- in the Cold War drama, which is heading into its fourth season. Russell and Rhys have been romantically linked since April 2014 when they were spotted out on a date night, then made things red carpet official at NYC’s Public Theater later that month.
