Dallas actress Leonor Varela is pregnant with her first child.
The 39 year old, who portrays Marta Del Sol in the Dallas TV revamp, and her producer partner Lucas Akoskin will welcome the baby this autumn. Her representative tells People.com, "It's Leonor's first child and the couple are over the moon."
It appears Varela's pregnancy won't interfere with the Dallas storyline - reports suggest her character will be killed off following a fall from a balcony in an upcoming episode.
