Prepare for some serious nostalgia. Former Spy Kids star Alexa PenaVega is pregnant. This will be her first child with husband, Carlos PenaVega. Carlos previously starred on Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush , so it's like all of your favorite childhood programs are colliding. The couple announced the exciting news on Instagram on Thursday. Alexa took a page from Audrina Patridge's book and promoted ClearBlue pregnancy tests in the process. Posing with the pregnancy test and her husband, she wrote,
I cannot believe I finally get to say this... WE'RE PREGNANT!!! It’s #ClearblueConfirmed that a little blessing is joining the PenaVega family!!! We can't wait!!! #ItsHappening #HolyWow #LosForDaddyOfTheYear #ClearbluePartner
How sweet is that? I can hardly wrap my mind around the fact that the Sky Kid star is having a kid. A future Spy Kid, if you will. (Can someone do me a favor and come up with a bunch of Spy Kids puns? Please and thanks.) In addition to that franchise, Alexa starred in movies like Sleepover and Lifetime's Odd Girl Out. Although she was a staple in your middle-school entertainment, she's 27 years old now. So I guess it shouldn't be too shocking that she's all grown up and starting a family. As for Carlos' résumé, he played Kenickie in the recent rendition of Grease: Live! that aired in January.
The PenaVegas got married in January 2014. Then, they competed against each other on Dancing With The Stars in 2015 during the show's 21st season, becoming the first married couple to do so. If they can survive a reality competition, then I think they can handle any challenges parenting throws their way.
Check out the adorable announcement that Alexa shared.
And here's the photo that Carlos posted:
OK, so they do look a bit like advertisements, but know what? That doesn't even matter. The good news outweighs the commercialism and the photo is too cute. Congrats to the happy couple!
