Former Felicity star Keri Russell is pregnant, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The actress, 30, and fiancé Shane Deary, 30, a contractor, will welcome their first child this summer, according to Russell's rep, Jill Fritzo.

Russell and Deary have been dating for several years and were engaged to be married last year. No wedding date has been set, Fritzo says.

Russell played the title role of Felicity Porter in the hit WB drama from 1998 to 2002. In 2006 she appeared opposite Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 3.

Her new movie, the indie romantic comedy Waitress, was directed by the late Adrienne Shelly and screened at the Sundance Film Festival. The Cover Girl spokeswoman will also star later this year in August Rush with Robin Williams and Girl in the Park with Kate Bosworth.

Of her pregnancy, Russell, who's in her second trimester, told PEOPLE at Sundance, "I'm one of the lucky ones. So far it's been nice and easy. It's a big, life-changing experience, and we're excited."
