It looks like Alex Russo is going to have some competition: David Henrie, best known for his role as Justin Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place, is expecting a baby girl!

Henrie and his wife, former Miss Delaware and teacher Maria Cahill, announced via Instagram that they will soon welcome their first child together, a baby girl, into their family.

"ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL. Im a Poppa!!!!!!! Im so overwhelmed with joy I had to share this with you guys. I’m already singing 'I Loved Her First,'" Henrie wrote on Instagram, along with a video of the gender reveal. "That reminds me. Where’s my shotgun? I don’t have a shotgun. Someone get me a shotgun! I can’t wait to sit her down on a couch and tell her a 9 season story of How I Met Your Mother 😂😂😂 #baby #itsagirl #shotgun #poppa #dad."

Henrie and Cahill tied the knot in April 2017 in an Old Hollywood-style affair in Southern California. The bride stunned in a lace wedding dress by Enzoani with long illusion sleeves and a high neckline. Henrie, meanwhile, wore a traditional Indochino tux and a white bowtie for the occasion. "My dad got married in a white bowtie, so I'm honoring him," Henrie explained to People at the time.

And naturally, included in the couple's 170 wedding guests was the entire Russo family with Henrie's costar Selena Gomez leading the magical clan. "She was like, 'I'm in. Whenever it is, I'll be there,'" Henrie said of Gomez.

Shortly after the exciting baby announcement, Henrie took to Instagram Stories to give his wife a special shout out. "After getting married my life started to take on a meaning and importance that's indescribable. I'd never felt before and made me such a better person," he wrote alongside a Boomerang of himself and his wife. "I cannot wait to see what being a poppa brings. I cannot wait!!"
