The Bold and the Beautiful's Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) is thrilled to announce she's pregnant with her first child.

The Bold and the Beautiful's Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) gave everyone a surprise when she eloped with Elan Ruspoli earlier this summer. And now she has revealed another fun surprise: she's nearly six months pregnant with her first baby!

According to ET, Wood decided to reveal her exciting pregnancy news to her castmates in a very unusual way: During a scene that called for the actress to walk down the catwalk in sexy lingerie, she yelled: "I just wanna let you all know: your girl is pregnant! I am pregnant!"

Most of her costars were completely stunned by the news, with Courtney Hope expressing: "I'm so surprised. I had no idea. And it's super weird because I work with her all the time!"

The one person who was given a heads-up, however, was B&B's executive producer and head writer Brad Bell.

"She told me about a month ago, and she told me in person [and] came up to my office," he tells ET. "I'm thrilled. I'm a father of four kids myself, and she's just fallen in love with her husband and now she's falling in love again with a child. It's just a wonderful, wonderful thing."

As wonderful as it is, however, Wood reveals that it was a nerve-wracking feeling to announce her pregnancy.

"I am still shaking, my hands are shaking, my body is shaking, but it's such a surreal, beautiful moment and I am happy to do it with people that I love," she enthuses, adding that she's excited to experience intense love for her baby (whose sex has yet to be revealed). "I feel like I am a happy, positive person, and it's the most beautiful, yet scary new chapter because of the amount of love that I am going to give this child."

As for how B&B will handle Wood's pregnancy on-screen, viewers don't have to worry about Steffy having yet another baby, seeing as how the character just had one.

"[You're going to see] Steffy holding things, Steffy behind desks," Wood joked of how the show will hide her growing belly. "Whatever work wants to throw at me, I am game."
