07/28/2009 AT 08:00 AM EDT
In a bit of of life imitating art, Jensen found out that she was expecting after her character on the hit show went through pregnancy and birth this past season. Jensen, who studied acting in her native Scotland, met her hubby while they were performing in King Lear. She received an Emmy nod for her role on TV's Extras in 2008.
Jensen – "excited" about being pregnant – is not slowing down anytime soon. She's currently working on the new Jenna Elfman sitcom, Accidentally on Purpose, about a woman dating a younger man who finds out unexpectedly that, you guessed it: She's pregnant.
