Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!

Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford has been keeping some exciting news under wraps. Lucky for us, his wife Kiele Sanchez couldn't hold the secret much longer.

E! News can officially confirm the happy couple is expecting their first child together!

"I am playing a woman who is pretty detached from the thing that's growing inside her, and I couldn't be more excited about my pregnancy," Sanchez told reporters Sunday morning at the TCAs while promoting a new season of Kingdom. "So when I slip into Lisa, I'm at odds with this thing down here."

She continued, "It's something that I think that she at certain points really questions her decision to keep it, which couldn't be further from my own life. So it's a weird, strange, strange thing, especially when he kicks during a scene, you have to go on as if this thing didn't just move inside your body. So it's bizarre."

It's quite impressive timing for the actress who also revealed that her due date is in November. Perhaps its perfect timing as Kingdom returns to DirectTV this October.

Sanchez, who fans may also recognize from The Glades and Lost, married her man (or should we say Matt Saracen) in 2012 after two years of dating. They would later enjoy a picture-perfect tropical honeymoon.

"The real honeymoon was amazing. We had fun," Gilford told OK! Magazine. "We went to Tokyo, Kyoto, Hong Kong and we spent a bunch of time in Bali and traveled to a bunch of different regions in Bali."

For now, the couple is going to enjoy their ride to parenthood together. And with a boy on the way, we wouldn't mind seeing a young football stud in our future. Texas forever!
