Super news for 'Supergirl' fans. Melissa Benoist has announced that she is expecting her first child with her husband actor Chris Wood.

"A non-canine child is coming to our family very soon!! @christophrwood has always been an old dad by nature but now he's going to be a real one!" she wrote in a sweet Instagram post.

The couple met on the sets of the show 'Supergirl' where Chris played the role of Mon-El, who is Kara Danvers love interest. Chris essayed the role for over two seasons and returned for one episode in the fifth season. In 2017, they made their relationship insta-official when they were seen packing on the PDA in  Cancún, Mexico.

They "kissed passionately" several times and appeared to be in "their own world". According to an eyewitness, the two "couldn't keep their hands off each other".

Melissa had written about the engagement in an Instagram post. She shared a photo with him and the ring on full display. She captioned the photo, "Yes yes yes it will always be yes." They exchanged marital vows in September last year. The duo exchanged vows at a private estate in Ojai, California.

"It was a beautiful setting for a wedding very peaceful and quiet," a source told E! News, noting the ceremony took place beside a pool. "The vows were brief and lasted about 15 minutes. There was lots of cheering and applause as it ended," the source said.

Melissa was earlier married to her 'Glee' co-star Blake Jenner. The two tied the knot in 2013. However, Melissa filed for divorce in late 2016. 

Meanwhile, 'Supergirl' is in the middle of the fifth season and a lot of things have taken place, apart from the devastating multiversal 'Crisis On Infinite Earths'.

The show airs on CW, Sundays at 7pm.
