The "Nashville" actress is thrilled to be expecting her first child with her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, 38, because they had been trying to have a baby for a while, reports contactmusic.com.
"The pregnancy was definitely planned. Our whole family is very excited (for the baby to arrive)," Alan was quoted by In Touch magazine as saying.
The couple, who got engaged earlier this year, hope to get married before she gives birth.
Alan said: "Their schedules are tight right now. But they're going to work it out."
