Actress Danielle Fishel has shared that she and her husband, producer Jensen Karp, are pregnant with their first child.

Fishel, 37, posted a photo of baby shoes on Instagram, saying she was on an emotional roller coaster preparing for the baby.

“I’m eating for two. I’m napping with wild abandon. Baby shoes. Baby clothes. (I’m shopping). I’m nesting. I’m reading books. I’m madly in love with my husband. I cry at commercials. I’m a walking cliché. I’ve got baby apps. I’m confident. I feel inadequate. I’m showing one day and the next I’m not. I’m nervous. I’m excited. He’s due in July. We can’t wait. #BabyKarp2019,” Fishel wrote.

Karp, 39, also wrote his own post announcing the news, adding a hilarious photo of what their future son might look like, created with the baby photo-generating website MakeMeBabies.

“GUYS. We’re having a baby boy. Couldn’t be more excited to raise a sweet little dumpling with @daniellefishel,” wrote Karp. “Even though we used one of those websites and found out it will look like the monster in the next photo.‬..”

Karp also replied to Fishel’s Instagram post, saying, “This post is better than mine. Love you. Let’s name him Jordan,” according to E! News.

Fishel and Karp received hundreds of messages expressing joy and congratulations from friends, family, and fans after the baby announcement.

“Your TV son is so happy you are getting a real-life son. You are going to be the greatest mom EVER, and I should know!” said actor August Maturo, who played Fishel’s son on “Girl Meets World,” according to E! News.

“I couldn’t be more excited. I love you both very much. I’ll help as much as you need but you can juggle 744,886 things at once so maybe you won’t need help,” said actress Angela Trimbur.

The couple has been married since Nov. 4, reported E! News, after becoming engaged in March.

Fishel told Us Weekly in September about her wedding, “I am going to say that it’s not traditional. It’s a little bit quirky, just like we are.” She added, “I am on cloud nine. He is the most amazing partner anybody could ever hope for. And I’m just thrilled. I’m really looking forward to building a life with him.”

As an actress starring in both the famous television series “Boy Meets World” from 1993 to 2000, and its sequel “Girl Meets World” from 2014 to 2017, Fishel invited several notable co-stars to her wedding.

Ben Savage, who played Cory Matthews on “Boy Meets World,” and Will Friedle, who played Eric Matthews, were two guests at the ceremony. Fishel played the character Topanga Lawrence on the show.

Sabrina Carpenter, who played Maya Hart on “Girl Meets World,” was a bridesmaid, and musician John Mayer also performed for the wedding, reported E! News.

Fishel has acted in various other roles throughout her career, such as the voice of Pyronica in the television series “Gravity Falls,” along with films “Boiling Pot,” “Dorm Daze,” and “Longshot.”

Karp is executive producer on the television series “Drop the Mic,” and also produced “Baby Talk,” “Scheer-RL,” and “The ArScheerio Paul Show.”

This is Fishel’s second marriage after she divorced business manager Tim Belusko in 2016. They were married for two years.
