The actor, who won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Aaron Burr in the Broadway smash Hamilton, announced on Instagram Monday that he and his actress wife Nicolette Robinson are expecting their first child.

“Little one, you’re on our mind all the time. Keep eating and growing!” Odom, 35, wrote next to a photo of the couple sitting under large gold balloons spelling out the word “BABY.”

“We love you and we’re already so proud of you!” he added. “Love, your mom and dad.”

Robinson, currently starring as Jane in Showtime’s “The Affair,” also took to Instagram with the baby news.

“One of the greatest gifts we could ever ask for,” the actress, 28, captioned a similar photo of the couple embracing under the balloons.

“Leslie and I are so excited to share the news that we have a sweet baby on the way,” she continued, adding a heart emoji and the hashtag “#pregnant.”

The couple met during a Los Angeles production of Once on This Island in 2008, where Odom served as both part of the ensemble cast and assistant director. They were married in 2012.
