What’s in the water at Law & Order: SVU‘s fictional 16th precinct? Shortly after SVU vet Ice T confirmed that his wife, Coco, is expecting the couple’s first child, NBC showrunner Warren Leight spilled via Twitter that Ice’s costar Kelli Giddish is pregnant too!
“@FINALLEVEL and @cocosworld having a baby. @TheKelliGiddish and L Faulborn having a baby. #SVU — most fertile show on Earth. Congrats all!!” Leight wrote in a retweeted response to Ice T’s social media announcement. An NBC rep also confirmed the news to Us Weekly.

Giddish isn‘t just celebrating a pregnancy, though. On June 20, the actress married Lawrence Faulborn in an intimate ceremony in New Smyrna Beach, Fla.
Paradise Beach Weddings reported on their web site that Giddish and Faulborn tied the knot in a rustic beachfront ceremony with just 12 guests in attendance. “Kelli, Larry, and their families were a joy to work with . . . and the wedding was gorgeous,” the wedding planners revealed.
For her trip down the aisle, the mom-to-be chose a V-neck gown with short sleeves, accessorized with a crown, wedge espadrilles, and bouquet of bright yellow flowers. Her groom maintained a casual vibe in a white linen shirt, blue slacks, and flip-flops.
Giddish — who plays Amanda Rollins, the partner of Ice’s Fin Tutuola — has been part of the police procedural since 2011. SVU returns for Season 17 in September.
