The star of the cult hit film “Napoleon Dynamite” and his wife are expecting their first child, his publicist confirmed Friday.

Jon Heder, 28, spilled the news, first reported by People magazine, during a Hollywood Foreign Press news conference on Thursday, said publicist Nicole Chabot.

Heder, 28, appears in the upcoming film “School for Scoundrels.”

Heder and wife Kirsten married in 2002. He made his film breakthrough playing Napoleon, a memorable oddball, in the 2004 film.
