Jill Wagner recently revealed that she has a baby on the way and that she learned the good news when she decided to consult an infertility doctor.
The Hallmark Channel actress, 40, and husband David Lemanowicz, 43, are expecting their first child together, according to PEOPLE.
“I feel amazing,” Wagner tells PEOPLE. “The little one has been taking it very easy on me. No morning sickness, praise the lord!”
The baby is the first for Wagner and the second child for Lemanowicz, who has a daughter Lija, 9. The couple have been married since April 2017 and they admit they were very pleasantly surprised when they learned about the pregnancy.
Wagner reveals that her husband and her had been trying for a while and she finally stopped stressing over it and made an appointment with a fertility doctor: “We actually found out at the doctor’s appointment that I was already pregnant. It was shocking, scary and the best feeling in the world all at once!”
Wagner says she and Lemanowicz have loved sharing the news with close friends and family.
“At first I enjoyed telling our close friends and family and seeing their reactions,” says Wagner. “I loved it so much I started filming them. One day my baby is going to love seeing those videos.”
Wagner also shares that she loves the changes she is going though emotionally: “I have never really been maternal, but growing a little person inside me is bringing up all kinds of feelings I never thought I could feel. It’s been a real watershed moment for me in the best possible way.”
Wagner, who is due in April, says she’s enjoying every minute so far.
Wagner married former pro hockey player David Lemanowicz in April 2017, after they had announced their engagement earlier in 2016.
She is a film and television actress, model, and game show personality. She was a co-host for the ABC competition show Wipeout from 2008 to 2014. Since 2015, she has been seen in various Hallmark Channel original television films. In 2019, she began playing the role of “murder mystery” literature professor Amy Winslow on the Mystery 101 movie series on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel.
The actress is staying busy as long as possible during her pregnancy— she’s currently filming another Hallmark TV movie set to air in early 2020 and stars in two Hallmark Christmas movies: Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses and Christmas In Evergreen: Tidings of Joy.
