Earlier this month, a source close to the couple told Us the pair is thrilled to be starting a family together. "They planned for this baby and now seemed as good of a time as ever," the insider explained. "They really will be the best parents." 

A second source says Faris and Pratt, who wed in 2009, were "so excited" to become first-time parents. "Having a kid is a big deal to both of them -- they didn't take this lightly."

Pratt, who shows off his musical skills as goofy MouseRat frontman Andy Dwyer on "Parks and Rec," is also "excited to have a little guy to teach guitar," the insider added. After his critically acclaimed performance in 2011's "Moneyball" (opposite Brad Pitt), Pratt "has been into baseball again," the insider revealed. "I'm sure he's going to sign his son up."
