This is going to be some international family! Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd and his wife, English actress Alice Evans, are expecting a baby, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

This will be the first child for the couple, who currently live in Los Angeles.

The Fantastic Four actor, 35, met Evans, 37, while filming 2002's 102 Dalmations and they wed in the fall of 2007.

Gruffudd, who gained fame across the pond starring as Horatio Hornblower in Hornblower – the British made-for-TV films based on C.S. Forester's novels – has also appeared in 2004's King Arthur and 2006's Amazing Grace, and played former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in Oliver Stone's W. last year. He next appears with Julia Roberts in Fireflies in the Garden, due out in June.
