A big time rush! Alexa and Carlos PenaVega are expecting their first child together, the couple announced on social media.
“PREGNANT! It’s #ClearblueConfirmed a lil blessing is joining the PenaVega fam! #ItsHappening,” the Spy Kids actress, 27, tweeted on Thursday, June 16.
The Big Time Rush rocker, 26, also shared their baby joy on Instagram on Thursday. “Breaking news! It’s #ClearblueConfirmed! There is going to be a new cool kid in town… And by cool I mean dorky just like their father. A little PenaVega is on the way!!! #ItsHappening #HolyWow #Imgoingtobeadaddy.”
The couple began dating in 2013 and announced their engagement in September of the same year. They tied the knot in January 2014 in an extravagant wedding in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, at the Grand Velas resort with a massive wedding party of 18 friends and family members. For the big day, Alexa stunned in an Eduardo Lucero gown for the ceremony.
They chose to combine their last names, Alexa Vega and Carlos Pena, and both changed their names to PenaVega.
In 2015, the duo became the first-ever married couple to compete against each other on Dancing With the Stars. Carlos and his pro partner, Witney Carson, placed fourth during season 21 of the ABC competition, beating out Alexa and partner Mark Ballas, who were eliminated two weeks earlier.
It seems that Alexa and Carlos have had children on their minds for a while now. Back in December, Carlos joked on Instagram about how their kids will be a mix of their mom and dad. “Oh and if you did not know this already @vegaalexa .. Our kids will have the curliest hair ever. #lexlos #bigtimespykidswithcurlyhairwhorunaroundthehousenaked.”
Previously, Vega was married to film producer Sean Covel, 40, but they split in July 2012 after two years of marriage. The pair’s divorce was finalized in December 2012.
