The pair, who just recently denied they were expecting a child, confirmed the news this afternoon.

A spokesperson for the newly-marrieds told American magazine US Weekly they are "thrilled" to have a baby on the way.

A statement said: "Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell confirmed that they are expecting their first child later this year."

And Evan took to her Twitter to confirm the happy news. She posted: "Thanks for all your warm wishes. We are very happy. I'm gonna be a mama!"

The couple, who married in October last year, dismissed suggestions Rachel was pregnant only two months ago.

The 25-year-old actress was spotted with what appeared to be a baby bump back in November, prompting the rumour mill to go into overdrive.

But she quickly took to Twitter to say: "Sorry to disappoint. But no baby on the way here!"

We were fooled!

However, Evan has set the record straight today, revealing that she didn't ACTUALLY know she was expecting herself back then.

She tweeted today: "Remember when i said, "No baby on the way here" Well, I didnt know there actually was!"

Rachel and Jamie have been notoriously private about their relationship, marrying in a secret ceremony in California on October 30.

The pair first met when they starred together in Green Day's music video 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' back in 2005.

Despite splitting up in 2006, they got back together in 2011 and Jamie (who we all remember from Billy Elliot) popped the question in early 2012.
