The age-old-adage rings true once again: First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes, you guessed it — a baby for Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross! E! News has confirmed that the newly-married pair are expecting their first child together.
Their new addition will join the happy little family, which includes big brother Bronx from Simpson's first marriage to Pete Wentz.
The couple, who tied the knot on August 31, wasted no time in starting their new family. Just last month the Hunger Games star told E! that he and his new wife were "working on" having a family. "I would like [having kids]," Ross said at the time. "As many as possible!"

It comes as little surprise that the duo were eager to begin their lives together. Just last month, Ross admitted that he can hardly even stand to be away from his new wife! "It's the best thing ever. I actually want to get back to her, althought I'm excited to be on the red carpet — it's incredible," he told Us Weekly at the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. "I wish she didn't leave but there's a lot going on here."
Overall, it's been an exceptionally great year for both Ross and Simpson. After their fabulous Greenwich, Connecticut wedding in late August, the pair headed to Bali for what we can only imagine was one of the most relaxing honeymoons ever.
While we're sure the pair (and 6-year-old Bronx!) are thrilled about the newest member of their family, we can also think of another adorable little one that is looking forward to having a relative close in age: big sister Jessica's youngest daughter Maxwell!
Congratulations to the happy parents-to-be, and the future big brother!
