Jennifer Carpenter has a lot to look forward to these days! The former Dexter star is not only reportedly engaged to Seth Avett of the folk band The Avett Brothers, but she's also expecting her first child with him too!

The excitement began yesterday when Carpenter was spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing a three quarter-length tee with a burgeoning baby bump in full view. Also in everyone's sight? A yellow gold indie-looking ring on that finger.

The actress's rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Carpenter is indeed both pregnant and engaged to boyfriend Seth Avett. The musician and Carpenter began dating in June 2013.

Carpenter was previously wed to her Dexter co-star Michael C. Hall in 2008, but the pair divorced in 2011. This go 'round, it seems like Carpenter has a really good thing going: The twosome started out as friends and let the romance grow from there.

"Jennifer met Seth about four years ago at a concert," an insider told Us after their relationship went public in almost two years ago. "She loves music and has always been a big supporter of the band. The relationship developed over the past few months."

Not only is there a strong foundation, but this couple seems to have complementary personalities. "They have a lot in common and seem to have a similar sense of humor," the source added. "There is an ease about their relationship. They are a good match."
