Stanley Tucci is expecting his first child with wife Felicity Blunt.

“The Hunger Games” actor and his wife of two years are having a baby, his publicist confirmed to the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

“I’m very excited to be a dad. It’s incredible,” the 53-year-old character actor told Us Weekly at the Mario Batali Foundation Dinner on Sunday. “I’m most excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy.”


But this isn’t the Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning star’s first go at fatherhood -- this will be his fourth child. He had three kids with his late wife Kate Spath-Tucci, who died in 2009 after battling breast cancer.

Tucci, who is also a cookbook author, met Blunt, a literary agent, after being set up on a blind date by her sister -- his “Devil Wears Prada” costar Emily Blunt, who’s now married to John Krasinski of “The Office.”

Their new arrival already has a cousin in Emily Blunt and Krasinski’s daughter Hazel, born in February.

Tucci and Felicity Blunt got engaged in 2011 and he revealed in August 2012 that they’d secretly wed. They followed up the reveal with a vow exchange at Middle Temple Hall in London, where they were joined by her sister, Krasinski, Steve Buscemi, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Ewan McGregor.
