The announcement comes a year after the couple revealed that Walsh had suffered a miscarriage. Grammer has two children with his most recent ex, Camille Donatacci. He had a child with his first wife, Doreen, and another with his ex, Barrie Buckner.

The "Boss" star is thrilled that Walsh, a 32-year-old former flight attendant, is expecting. The pair tied the knot in February of 2011, just weeks after Grammer finalized his divorce from "Real Housewives" star Donatacci. "She's one of the most loving, amazing, warm human beings I've ever met," he said about Walsh. "She's funny and serious all at the same time. She's an amazing person and I think she'll blow [the kids] away."

Grammer has another reason to celebrate. He took home the Golden Globe Sunday night for best actor in a TV drama for his role in Starz's "Boss."
