This 'Mean Girls' Star Has Big News

Big news for the actor best known for her role as Gretchen "I'm totally rich because my dad invented Toaster Strudel" Wieners in Mean Girls: as she shared over the weekend, Lacey Chabert is pregnant with her first child. On Saturday, the star posted an adorable Instagram photo revealing the exciting announcement, hashtagging #pregnant and writing, "I'm so happy to share the good news that my husband and I are expecting a baby later this year! We are thrilled and so thankful for this blessing."

Chabert and husband Dave Nehdar have a sweet love story. They married in January 2014 at a soiree with several celebrity guests in attendance, from Kaley Cuoco to Amy Davidson of 8 Simple Rules to The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky, Us Weekly reports. When the nuptials were revealed to the public, said People, Chabert posted a nice message, saying, "I'm starting off 2014 as a Mrs! Over the holidays, my best friend & love of my life...we became husband & wife! #soblessed #love."

Fast forward two years, and Chabert has continued with the adorable social media life announcements. The way she announced her pregnancy was, in the words of Gretchen Weiners, so fetch — in the Instagram photo, she shared an image of her dog, Kitty, rocking a t-shirt that reads, "“My mom is having a baby & all I get is this silly shirt." And while Kitty doesn't seem to be to pleased with the whole affair (the pup is seen giving the camera a look like "Why do you always put me in human clothes? Can't you see I'm a dog?"), it's a nice, silly way to share the announcement.

Congratulations to Chabert and Nehdar (and their not-so-happy little dog) on the big news! May this baby bring them as much joy in their lives as a pair of white good hoops for Hanukkah would in Gretchen's.
