Los Angeles - Glee actress Heather Morris is reportedly pregnant.

The 26-year-old star, who plays cheerleader Brittany S Pierce in the popular musical TV series, and her childhood sweetheart Taylor Hubbell are expecting their first child together and the couple are delighted to be becoming parents.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "She's a little more than three months along and starting to show. It was totally unexpected, but they are incredibly happy and excited.'"

The blonde beauty, whose previous career was a backing dancer for pop sensation Beyoncé, has previously gushed amount how much she wanted to start a family with her boyfriend and said she was willing to give up acting to focus on her dream.

"I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won't continue," she previously said.

'I love and support Cory'

While they haven't mentioned tying the knot, a close pal of the parents-to-be predicts they will walk down the aisle sooner rather than later.

"I see it in their future," the source said.

Heather's good news comes shortly after her co-star Cory Monteith, who plays Finn Hudson in the programme, voluntarily checked himself into rehab for "substance addiction" and the actor's on-screen and real-life girlfriend Lea Michele has thanked everyone for their support during the difficult time.

"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision," Heather said.
