There's some serious baby fever going on at the Law and Order: SVU studios! First, Ice T and wife Coco were celebrating news that they were due to become parents. Then, news broke that Ice T's co-star Kelli Giddish had not only married new husband Lawrence Faulborn, but was also pregnant.

Now, Peter Scanavino's getting in on the baby action! And in what's becoming a bit of a habit, it was left to SVU showrunner Warren Leight to break Scanavino and wife Lisha Bai's happy news!

"Breaking:you won't believe this but @PeterScanavino just checked in. He and his lovely wife Lisha expecting their 2nd in January! #SVUNursery," an excited Leight tweeted late on Tuesday, July 28.

Just one day earlier, Leight had spread the news that Giddish and Faulborn were soon to be parents, and had thrown down the gauntlet to Scanavino, 35, and his costar Raul Esparza to start some procreation too.

"now that @FINALLEVEL,@TheKelliGiddish are in a family way, pressure's on @PeterScanavino,@RaulEEsparza (@Mariska has done her part) #SVU17," he wrote.

As fans caught wind of a third expected baby on the SVU set, the battle was on for the best baby pun or pregnancy quip that could be made about the show, which was quickly given the hashtag nickname #SpecialBabiesUnit!
