The unexpected gender reveal came only six days after the 6ft2in heartthrob’s rep confirmed to E! News that his 35-year-old babymama was, indeed, pregnant.

It was even more obvious as Jeffrey openly embraced the Summer Villa stunner’ bump through her strapless, billowy vintage Lanvin gown on the Emmy Awards red carpet outside LA’s Microsoft Theater.

The couple of eight years – who have a 16-year age gap – are already parents of seven-year-old son Augustus, but have yet to walk down the aisle together. 

The 51-year-old actor shared a snap of the moment he 'spilled the little girl beans' and wrote: '[Hilarie] was a rockstar. After all these years she's come to expect me to be a dope... thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless'

Morgan and Burton certainly have their hands full with the donkeys, alpacas, bees, dogs, and garden growing on their Rhinebeck farm in New York.

The Seattle-born star was previously engaged to his Weeds onscreen wife Mary-Louise Parker from 2006-2008 following his 2003 divorce from actress Anya Longwell.

And in 2009, the Virginia-born blonde divorced the assistant director, Ian Prange, on her CW series One Tree Hill after a five-year marriage.
