The 31-year-old's representative confirmed the happy news to PEOPLE on Wednesday, September 8.

Emma Stone, Kris Jenner, Adele and more famous faces attended the couple's wedding reception.

The pregnancy news comes after an OK! insider previously spilled that the Hunger Games alum and the 36-year-old were trying to have a baby. The pair had been "telling pals they want to start a family and that they’re trying to get pregnant ASAP," the source said in May.

While the Mother! star was already thinking about having a baby, after Stone and her husband Dave McCary welcomed their daughter in March, it became more of a priority for her, the insider explained. "Jen sees how happy Emma is with her little girl and it's made her want one even more," the source said.
