Kelli Giddish Pregnant: ‘SVU’ Star Reveals She Is Married And Pregnant After Ice-T Announced He Is Expecting With Wife Coco Austin
Kelli Giddish pregnant?
That’s right, the Law and Order: SVU (Special Victims Unit) star recently revealed that she is not only expecting her first child — she is also now a married woman!
According to Us Weekly, Kelli tied the knot with her fiance, Lawrence Faulborn, in an intimate ceremony in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, on June 20.
“Kelli, Larry and their families were a joy to work with and with a beautiful array of fresh flowers, burlap and rustic charm, (hippy as Kelli would say) the setup and wedding was gorgeous. The weather was amazing and privacy was great,” Paradise Beach Weddings wrote on their website.
The wedding site also shared a slideshow of pictures from the wedding, which show Kelli in a v-neck, short-sleeve gown. She accessorized with a flowered crown, wedge heels, and a bouquet of bright yellow flowers. Larry was dressed casually in a white button-down shirt, blue slacks, and flip-flops.
Warren Leight, the long-running drama’s executive producer, was the first to spill the beans that Giddish was expecting her first child, not long after Giddish’s co-star Ice-T revealed he and his wife Coco Austin are expecting. Apparently, there is something in the water at the fictional 16th precinct.
“@FINALLEVEL and @cocosworld having a baby. @TheKelliGiddish and L Faulborn having a baby. #SVU — most fertile show on Earth. Congrats all!!” Leight tweeted in response to Ice T’s social media announcement.
“Oh s***! The news is out. YES. We”re having a baby. We announced it on the Ice&Coco Talk Show taping Friday.. That show will air August 3rd,” Ice-T previously tweeted.

Ice and Coco have been married for 14 years, and were excited to announce that they would soon be parents, but were waiting until the time was right.
“I’ve been pregnant for a while, but we’ve been holding it between us for some time,” revealed Coco.
“It was a really awesome moment. I cried,” said Coco, referring to when they announced the news to the audience at the set of their talk show Ice and Coco. “It was a nice feeling to know that the world knows and I don’t have to hide it.”
Giddish, who plays Amanda Rollins, the partner of Ice-T’s character Fin Tutuola, has been a member of the SVU cast since 2011. Season 17 of Law and Order: SVU is set to premiere in September 2015. There is currently no word on how Giddish’s pregnancy will be factored into the show, or if they will simply try to cover it up.
