The star recently reminisced about the moment she realised she was pregnant, telling Fit Pregnancy: "Once last year I felt faint before a scene, and someone joked, 'Are you pregnant?' And I thought, 'Is that how you feel when you're pregnant?' Then, just before jumping back into Grey's this year, I had that same sensation, whereupon I decided to take a pregnancy test, even though Matt and I had only just started trying. He didn't want me to - he thought I'd be disappointed if it were negative. When it was positive, I came out of the bathroom and surprised him with it." She added: "I was very lucky to conceive the first time trying. I didn't think it would happen that way."

She captioned the photo: "I am so excited to announce today that I am having a... girl! I want her to grow up knowing how strong women are. To be a little warrior who is not afraid to use her voice and stand up for what she believes is right. To navigate through life with courage and kindness, and to be one of the girls who says, 'You CAN sit with us.'"
