The Wedding Planner star, 38, announced the couple were expecting through his official website on Tuesday. "My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together," he says. "We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child shepherding him or her through this life."

Due late this summer, the baby will be the couple's first child together. "Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers!" requested the ecstatic father-to-be. "Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life!"
