Marisa Ramirez is going to be a mom! The Blue Bloods star opened up about her new, incredible journey towards motherhood, telling People:
"This was a complete surprise. Some mornings I wake up and forget I'm pregnant! It just seems like it was meant to be — a happy surprise."
But the 38-year-old doesn't know too much about her baby-to-be, and has decided to keep the gender a secret.

However, the actress confessed she's not sure how long that will last, saying:
"I'm sure it won't be much longer until we can't take the suspense anymore."
The brunette beauty turned to parenting books for advice, but admitted she didn't always love the reading material:
"Some of the books have totally freaked me out and they have been thrown across the room."
Luckily, the gorgeous gal also has her on-screen family to help her, explaining:
"Donnie [Wahlberg] has known for awhile. He did a little happy dance when I told him and he's been extremely supportive and sweet."
She just gushed over how kind her costars have been since she announced she's expecting, adding:
"It gives me such a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that my Blue Bloods family is there to help me transition into this new chapter of my life."
But, her work regimen has made that transition a little tricky:
"Because I'm an actress, I'm really hard on myself. It has been hard for me to give myself time to rest and not go to the gym after work or to allow myself to eat things that I don't normally eat like croissants or Hamburger Helper. But I have been giving in to those cravings in moderation. In the first trimester, my body changing was so hard for me to accept. Now all I do is laugh about it."
And while the lovely lady feels bloated and uncomfortable sometimes, she admitted that she hasn't really experienced morning sickness, and only has positive things to say about her pregnancy:
"I get to experience this anticipation and excitement of meeting a child that will change my world forever and who will bring us so much joy."
We are just so excited for Marisa, and can't wait until her little one arrives into the world!
