Before jumping into this fun post, let me tell you how much I love Stanley Tucci. Is it me, or is he just wonderful? I’m thinking of some of my fave movies starring him: The Devil Wears Prada, Julie & Julia, Hunger Games, Captain America, Conspiracy (for which he won a Golden Globe) and, of course, Maid in Manhattan, among many, many others. He was also nominated for an Oscar for his chilling role in The Lovely Bones (which I couldn’t watch), and he was the only thing (other than Mark Wahlberg) that made Transformers 4 worth watching.

Now, the 53-year-old award-winning actor is reprising his role as new dad! He and his wife of two years, Felicity Blunt, 33, are expecting their first child together. In case you don’t know the background here, Felicity (a literary agent) is the sister of Emily Blunt, who, of course, co-starred with Stanley in The Devil Wears Prada (2006). So, baby-to-be will have Emily and John Krasinski’s daughter Hazel, now eight months, for a playdate!
This will be the first child for Felicity and the fourth for Stanley. He also has three children—Camilla, 12, and twins Nicolo and Isabel, 14—with his late wife, Kate, who passed away from breast cancer in 2009.
Happy times ahead for Mr. Tucci. Are you as big a fan as I am?
