Jenna Dewan's family is about to get bigger: The actress just announced she's expecting her first child with her boyfriend, actor Steve Kazee.

"We are beyond overjoyed and couldn't be happier to be expanding our family!" the couple, who started dating last year, told People.

Though this will be Dewan's first child with Kazee, the dancer already shares a 6-year-old daughter, Everly, with ex-husband Channing Tatum.

"[Steve] is very supportive of her as a mom," a source recently told People. "He is amazing with Everly. Jenna loves having Steve around. She feels very lucky to be dating him." (Related: How Jenna Dewan Tatum Got Her Pre-Baby Body Back)

ICYDK, Dewan has developed a refreshing perspective on motherhood since having her daughter Everly. She recently told People that she encourages Everly to embrace her individuality, regardless of what anyone else might say otherwise.

"Starting early and starting to build her confidence in her true authenticity and herself is important," said the World of Dance host. "Because then when the influences come in that will try and tell her, 'You're not great' and 'You're not amazing,' she'll have that strong sense of reminding."

Dewan has also opened up about how her life has changed for the better since becoming a mom: "Whether you try and hide it or not, most actresses and actors have a certain sense of anxious desperation about what their next job is. As soon as I had Everly, it went away," she told Harper's Bazaar last year. "I had this freedom of, 'Well, I could never work another day in my life, and I have a purpose.'"

After seeing Dewan develop such a loving relationship with Everly, we can't wait to see her adorable family continue to grow. Congrats to the happy couple!
