Boyle’s actor, comedian and writer Chris O’Dowd has revealed he and his wife Dawn O’Porter are expecting their first child.

The Bridesmaids star and creator of Moone Boy posted a video of himself on Twitter accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the ALS Association.

After his wife, Dawn drenched her husband with the water, he nominated his The IT Crowd co-star Richard Ayoade, Graham Linehan and “Baby O’Porter”, as he panned the camera over to his wife who revealed her baby bump and poured a small cup of ice water on her pregnant belly.

This will be the first child for the couple, who tied the knot in 2012.

Shortly after Chris posted the footage, the British actress acknowledged the happy news on Twitter, writing, “Thought we’d better mention it, before I got O’Busted (sic)!
