Steve - who played a father of 12 in the comedy movie 'Cheaper By The Dozen' - and Anne married in July 2007 after three years together.

The ceremony took place at Steve's Los Angeles home with former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey presiding over the ceremony, while 'Saturday Night Live' creator Lorne Michaels was best man.

Guests, who included Tom Hanks and Diane Keaton, did not know the couple were getting hitched and instead thought they had been invited to a party.

A representative for the 'Parenthood' actor would not comment on the baby news.
