"It has always been a dream of mine to become a mother," Brie told the website at the time. "Now that it is finally real, it fills me up with so much happiness. I can't wait to see my husband, Bryan, be a father to our child. I am so excited for this new chapter in our lives."
"The day we found out, I just couldn't stop smiling," Bryan added. "We are so excited to be parents. Every time I look at Brie's stomach, I'm amazed that there is a little life in there."
When Brie later found out she and her husband were expecting a girl, she revealed to E! News that she got "really emotional."
"I have such an amazing relationship with my mom and I think, wow, I'm going to have that with my daughter," she had said.
"Also as a woman I now have my own blood to follow my legacy. It's such a special feeling! My mini me!"
Bryan was also reportedly "so excited" about the idea of having a daughter, saying, "I'm sure that, just like her mother, she's going to steal my heart."
