Early 2000s pop queen Aly Michalka is pregnant!

The Phil of the Future actress announced that she and her husband, Stephen Ringer, were expecting on Instagram on January 31. “We found out the morning of our sold-out show at The Greek Theatre back in September. Our little one has been on stage with me across three states already and has even done some international traveling,” the Aly & AJ singer revealed alongside photos of her growing bump and her and her sister on tour.

Michalka went on to share that the couple would be waiting to find out the baby’s gender as she “always loved a good surprise.” In the meantime, the Potential Breakup Song artist noted that she was doing well and “busy getting the nursery ready, meeting with my birth team, eating more protein than usual, going to Pilates, getting good sleep, and drinking lots of water.”

Fellow Disney Channel alumnus, friends, actors and artists shared their love and congratulations in the comments. “So happy for you,” wrote Disney Channel star Ashley Tisdale. “Oh my beautiful friend what gorgeous news!!! Delighted for you!” added Irish actress Victoria Smurfit.

While Michalka shared the news with friends and fans over Instagram, she set up a special dinner at Pace in L.A. to tell her sister and bandmate, AJ, just days after she found out at their sold-out concert. “I was like, ‘There was a special guest that was at the Greek that you didn’t know was there,’ and she was like, ‘Who?’” Michalka told People. “I was like, ‘There’s a baby,’ and I touched my stomach, and then she was like, ‘What?!’ She was just really excited and overjoyed. From there, we told the rest of the family.”

Due in May and now several months into her pregnancy, Michalka says her pregnancy has been “really smooth sailing so far, and I was lucky I didn’t get any nausea at the beginning. I’ve just been just trekking away as usual,” she said. “I have to drink a lot more water and eat a lot more protein than I’ve had to in the past, which has been a struggle for me. But I’m trying to do it daily and be on top of it.”

As far as pregnancy cravings go, she’s found herself craving tacos and Birria but nothing "crazy.” Closing out her announcement, Michalka opened up about being thankful for the precious time spent with her baby so far.

“Somehow we’ve been able to still spend days in the studio writing music which hopefully finds its way into baby’s soul. I’m so grateful for all the amazing women I’ve leaned on these past 6 months (you know who you are) it makes me hopeful about the goodness in the world.”
