Kelly announced on her Instagram page that she is going to become a first-time mother. She made the news with two adorable photos: one of her holding a pregnancy test, and the other of her standing with her husband Pete, who proudly points out the “hot mom” necklace she’s wearing.
“When being late arrives on time… Surprise! WE ARE EXPECTING A BABY! Pete and I are overjoyed to be expanding our family and to be able to share the news with all of you!” she started her announcement.
The actress, who is most known for her role as Dr. Maggie Pierce in the medical drama, also expressed gratitude to Clearblue, the pregnancy test company she used, for making their product so simple to use.
In good humor, the expectant mother also thanked the March of Dimes, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the health and safety of women and their infants, for their efforts to raise awareness about Black maternal and infant health.
The star wrote, “This year, they launched an implicit bias training for over 15,000 health care providers with the goal of uncovering institutionalized racism in the health care system and training health care workers not to perpetuate the cycles of discrimination to achieve equity for all moms and babies.”

The actress followed up her pregnancy announcement with a PEOPLE interview in which she discussed how she felt when she initially learned she was expecting.
“When I saw pregnant, I really shouted in disbelief. I mean, I wasn’t anticipating it at all. I’d been psychologically and emotionally prepared myself for the chance that we wouldn’t be able to conceive right away. As a result, I was taken aback.”
She described being pregnant as powerful and grounded in the interview, adding that it will offer a new kind of challenge for her and her husband to face together. Despite her current enthusiasm about having a kid, she was originally apprehensive about bringing a baby into their life, particularly because she had professional goals she wanted to meet.
“I’m very fortunate to have a spouse who is ecstatic to welcome this kid into our lives and discover all of the ways that being parents will disrupt and test everything we’ve planned. We’ll be able to roll with it because we’re doing it together. And since this kid is so wanted and adored, whatever occurs will be the proper thing to do, and we’ll figure it out.”

The expectant parents are already making plans for how to make life work with the baby and what kind of effect they want to have on their children as parents.
“Each of my spouse and I created a list of the top five things we’d want to share. And, you know, I believe complete self-love and self-acceptance are at the top of that list. It’s everything I’d tell my younger self.”
Season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy began filming a few days before Kelly announced her pregnancy, and it’s unclear if the program would include her pregnancy in the season.
On ABC, the new season will debut on September 30.
