Adding, "They're so excited -- they're both ecstatic. They can't wait to become parents."

The couple, who began dating in 2007 and got engaged in 2009, have said they will be waiting to tie the knot.

"The reason we're not rushing to get married is because I don't feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that's denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends," the actress told The Advocate in February. "That's why we've been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We're just standing up for what we believe in. Period."
