There’s a bun in the oven for Curtis Stone and Lindsay Price.
The Top Chef Masters host, 35, and actress, 34, are expecting their first child together, the couple confirm to PEOPLE.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be starting a family together,” Stone tells PEOPLE. “We are over the moon.”
The celebrity chef and Price, who most recently appeared on Love Bites, Eastwick and Lipstick Jungle, have been dating since 2009.
“She is a real sweetheart and I am lucky to have found her,” the celebrity chef told his native Australia’s Herald Sun earlier this year. “It has been awesome.”
