The former star of Fox’s “Arrested Development” announced on Los Angeles radio station Star 98.7 last week that Anka is 5 1/2 months pregnant with a baby girl.

The 37-year-old actor said he and his wife are very excited and currently poring over baby name books, Us Weekly magazine reported on its Web site Sunday.

Bateman made his name as a child actor on the 1980s sitcom “The Hogan Family.” He won a Golden Globe last year for “Arrested Development,” which was canceled this year even though it was a critical hit.

Anka, an actress and the daughter of singer Paul Anka, has appeared in the film “Taxi” and television’s “Diagnosis Murder” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

The couple married in July 2001.
