Who says your dad can't also be a "friend?"

Director and former Friends actor David Schwimmer, 44, and his wife, Zoe Buckman, 26, have revealed that they are expecting their first child. The funnyman and the British photographer met in 2007, while Schwimmer was directing the film Run, Fatboy, Run in London. They got engaged early this year and tied the knot in a private June ceremony.

The duo "couldn't be more thrilled" about their baby news, a rep told USMagazine.com. According to a friend of the couple, Buckman is already "four to five months" along in her pregnancy.

In addition to the baby, Schwimmer will also be expecting the opening of his film Trust in 2011, set for release in April. —KIMBERLY STEELE
