Actors Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin are expecting a baby boy, according to Son's agency on Friday.

"Son Ye-jin will be giving birth in December and the baby is a boy," Son's agency MSteam Entertainment said.

Last June, Son revealed the news that the couple is expecting a baby through her Instagram.

“A new life came to us. I’m still bewildered, and also feeling the changes in my body every day with worry and excitement. I’m so cautious about this that I did not even inform most of the people around me yet. We will protect this life that has come to us," Son wrote.

Son and Hyun Bin revealed in January last year that they were dating. The pair starred as lovers in tvN’s hit television series “Crash Landing on You” (2019-20).

After going public with their relationship, the two tied the knot at a private ceremony in March.

Son emerged as the “icon of first love” thanks to the romance films "Lover's Concerto" (2002) and "The Classic" (2003). Afterward, she received recognition for more diverse leading roles like in thriller film "The Truth Beneath" (2015) and the historical drama film "The Last Princess" (2016). On TV, she has remained as the queen of melodramas and rom-coms, starring in JTBC’s "Something in the Rain" (2018) and "Crash Landing on You."

Hyun Bin became a heartthrob after starring in the MBC television rom-com series "My Lovely Sam-soon" (2005) and SBS’s “Secret Garden” (2010-11). He then took on leading roles in the drama film “Late Autumn” (2010), the historical thriller film “The Fatal Encounter” (2014) and the period zombie film “Rampant” (2018).
