In May, Lapkus first publicly shared the news that she was expecting after managing to keep her pregnancy under wraps for nearly seven months.

‘We are expecting a baby girl this summer. I am over the moon. So grateful and happy,’ the star wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself looking lovingly at her husband as she cradled her baby bump.

Castle, 32, was pictured returning his wife’s adoring gaze while holding the couple’s dog in his arms.
