The What’s Your Number? Actress is pregnant her rep confirms to Us Weekly. This will be the first child for both Faris, 35, and Pratt, 32, who tied the knot in July 2009.

“I do want a lot of kids,” the actress admitted last year. “We want to populate the world!” Back in 2009, Faris told reporters she hoped to be a very hands-on mom when the time came for kids in the future.

“I hope I wouldn’t get lazy, but I love being around kids,” the actress said. “Sometimes I relate to them in an adult manner, which is a little annoying, but I would love to be a mom at some point!”

Pratt recently spoke about his wife of nearly three years in the May issue of GQ Magazine. “I married way out of my pay grade. I have no idea how that happened. She’s so goddamn funny and so good,” he told the magazine.

“She is a legit comedy powerhouse. But I’m not going to question it too much. I don’t know what it is, man. I guess chicks dig love handles or something.”

According to The Daily Mail, Faris was spotted looking glowing and happy when attending the CinemaCon 2012 Awards in Las Vegas two weeks ago and now it is clear why. As well as the birth of her first child Anna’s year looks set to be very busy on the career front.

After making her name in the first film of the Scary Movie saga in 12 years ago the actress has since gone on to produce and be nominated for awards attached to numerous roles including Brokeback Mountain and My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

This year actress will be seen on the screens playing in her motion picture with Sacha Baron Cohen as well as Movie 43, while a fifth Scary Movie is due in 2013.

She said of her role in Dictator: “I’ve been such a big fan of Sacha’s for years and I just jumped at the opportunity to get to work with him. I was just thrilled. That was really exciting for me.”

Faris went on: “I love, in general, just getting to transform myself for characters. That’s really an exciting process for me. When they presented me with a more androgynous look, I thought that was just perfect.”

“You know, this is the kind of girl that the dictator has never met before. He’s used to sleeping with models and actresses, these really stunning women, so for a while he thinks that I’m a boy.

When asked what it was like working with Baron Cohen, she responded: “It was amazing. He’s just this sort of crazy genius. You just have to be prepared for anything.”

“The scene [can go] in a gazillion different directions and you just have to sort of roll with the punches. But it was great, I loved it. I just adore him. He was in character a lot of the time, but when he wasn’t, he’s a really kind gentleman — really intellectual and very funny. I just adored him.”

Anna and Chris tied the knot in a small ceremony in Bali in July 2009, after a six-month engagement. The happy couple met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight. Anna was previously linked to Ben Indra – the couple married in June 2004 but filed for divorce three years later.
