There’s a baby on the way for Jennifer Carpenter!

On Saturday, Carpenter, 35, stepped out on a coffee run in Los Feliz, California, and showed off her budding baby belly in a fitted tee while chatting on the phone.

The actress — who is best known for playing serial killer Dexter’s foster sister, former Lieutenant Debra Morgan, on the hit series — and The Avett Brothers musician, 34, have been dating for almost two years.

E! Online was the first to report Carpenter’s pregnancy.


E! Online posted something big today about Jennifer Carpenter, the article comes together with a couple of paparazzi photos which we won’t be sharing, instead you can read the article below or click here.

Jennifer Carpenter has us wondering about a couple of MAJOR nuggets that might be going on in her life.

The Dexter actress recently stepped out in jeans and a casual three-quarter T-shirt, but her accessories are of what’s important to us! We couldn’t help but notice that the star appears to have a growing bump and a popped-out belly button, which makes us ask the obvious question: Is she pregnant?!

In the pictures that show her standing from the side, Carpenter’s bump seems to have popped!

Even more suspect is the ring she is wearing on that finger. While talking on the phone (with boyfriend Seth Avett, perhaps?), Carpenter showed of her hand, which undoubtedly has a gorgeous sparkler on it!

E! News has reached out to reps for Carpenter and Avett for comment.

Carpenter and Avett (of Avett Brothers fame) have been together since 2013, getting together after she divorced Dexter co-star (and on-screen brother) Michael C. Hall. The actors had tied the knot on New Year’s Eve in 2008 and finalized their divorce in December 2011.

The folk singer, meanwhile, was previously linked to wife Susan Avett but they became separated in June 2013.

The usually low key couple was previously spotted in June having some fun while shopping. Avett and Carpenter briefly paused for an impromptu photo shoot, where the folk singer snapped some pics of his gal-pal jumping up and down in front of a pink wall. The happy couple walked away with their arms wrapped around each other.

Although she played Det. Deb Morgan for eight seasons on Showtime’s hit show, Carpenter was slated to return for ABC’s Sea of Fire pilot in 2014. The drama centered on three teen girls who star in a porn that sends ripples through their families, resulting in a disappearance, murder and more. Carpenter’s character comes to town to investigate the disappearance, but because it’s an ABC pilot, fans of the actress shouldn’t expect to hear any of her trademark f-bombs.
