'Desperate Housewives' Actress Marcia Cross Pregnant

On television, she's a desperate housewife. But in real life Marcia Cross is an expectant mother, her publicist confirmed Wednesday.

The redheaded actress, who plays Bree Van De Kamp on "Desperate Housewives," expects to give birth to her first child in April, publicist Heidi Slan said.

Cross, 44, and her stockbroker husband, Tom Mahoney, married in June. The two dated for more than a year and became engaged in August 2005.

"She's over the moon," co-star Eva Longoria told People Magazine at the time of the couple's engagement. "I'm so excited for her. It's so beautiful to see her this happy and so in love."
