Christy Carlson Romano, best known for playing Shia LeBeouf’s overachieving big sister on Nickelodeon’s Even Stevens, has just announced she is pregnant with her first child.
The 32-year-old actor and her husband, veteran Marine and producer Brendan Rooney have also revealed that their little bundle of joy is due to arrive on Christmas day. Christy issued a statement to People magazine that reads:
“I am flabbergasted at the serendipity of having a baby on Christmas. It’s our favorite holiday! What a gift we’ll have this year. Feeling so blessed and grateful … and a little nauseous.”
The baby’s birth isn’t the only close connection the couple have with Christmas though, Romano has also just finished directing her first feature film with his entitled Christmas All Over Again. And, just like with the baby, Rooney also played a part in bringing it to life by cowriting the script!

Congratulations to the happy couple, even though they have made me feel impossibly ancient now!
