Earlier this year, the Pam Halpert of 'The Office' reveals that becoming an aunt has made her want to have children of her own even more.
Jenna Fischer follows the footstep of her character from "The Office", Pam Halpert, in having a baby of her own. Her representative has just confirmed that the 37-year-old actress is expecting her first child with screenwriter husband Lee Kirk.
The TV star showed off her baby bump on Wednesday night, May 11 when she was spotted at Los Angeles's Red O Restaurant. Earlier this year, she opened up to Redbook magazine that she has been thinking more about having children after becoming an aunt. "I already wanted kids, but even more so now," she said at the time.
The "Solitary Man" actress was inspired to become a mother herself after she spent quality time with her niece. "When Cecelia was 3 weeks old, Pam was on maternity leave, so I had a whole week off to spend with her," she recalled. "I took charge of the night feedings. It was so awesome: Every night at 9:30, I'd say, 'You guys go to sleep now.' I wanted CeCe all to myself. We really bonded."
Jenna started dating Kirk in 2008. The couple got engaged on June 30, 2009 while the twosome were vacationing in Europe. They tied the knot in Malibu in July 2010 with "Survivor" host Jeff Probst officiating the ceremony.
