Lily Anne Harrison and Peter Facinelli are getting ready to expand their family.

In an exclusive interview with the couple on July 17, Lily—who is expecting her first child with the Twilight star—opened up about how her pregnancy journey has been unfolding thus far.

"It's been it's been super smooth and easy," she told E! News at the Cali Cares charity fundraising dinner hosted by Vanessa Hudgens and Oliver Trevena to benefit No Kid Hungry on behalf of Caliwater. "It was a pleasant surprise because it's different for everybody. So I kind of didn't know what was going to happen, you never know going in."

As for what she's most excited about when the baby arrives, it's simple. "I mean, we like each other so much," Lily said at Spago in Beverly Hills. "We get to have a little 50/50 of us."

Peter, who is also dad to three daughters—Luca Bella, 24, Lola Ray, 19, and Fiona Eve, 15—from his previous marriage to Jennie Garth, shared whether his experience as a parent will come in handy this time around.

"It's been a minute since I had a kid but, it's kind of fun," he said. "It's kind of fun to do it all over again."

The 48-year-old actor then explained how different preparing for the new baby has been in comparison to having his last child fifteen years ago. "They have all new gadgets in there," Peter said. "Like they have these strollers that kind of go on their own and they rock the baby but I said I had a billion dollar idea the other day."

And what is Peter's billion dollar idea? A baby bidet. He explained, "We just kind of like hold it over a little bidet and it cleans the baby."

Peter and Lily got engaged back in 2020 during a romantic beachside dinner in Mazatlan, Mexico. Last month, The Vanished star announced she was pregnant, sharing a selfie of her growing baby bump on Instagram, captioning the June 25 post, "Not a burrito belly."
