Anthony Michael Hall & Wife Lucia Expecting First Child
Anthony Michael Hall is going to be a dad!
On Tuesday (February 14), the 54-year-old actor – best known for his roles in Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Weird Science – announced that he and wife Lucia are expecting their first child together.
In a new interview with People, Anthony recalled how Lucia told him that they were going to be parents.
“Lucia and I were at home. She surprised me by revealing that she was pregnant with an at-home pregnancy test. We were kissing, hugging, and thanking God,” Anthony recalled. “We immediately started dancing and laughing in our bathroom to celebrate the great news.”
Anthony also revealed that he and Lucia are expecting a baby boy.
“Michael Anthony Hall the II will be born this summer,” Anthony – who was born “Michael Anthony Hall” but had to change it when joining the Screen Actor’s Guild in 1976 – added. “My wife and I are feeling so blessed, excited and filled with joy in anticipation of our son being born this summer.”
He also said that Lucia has been a “champ throughout the pregnancy.”
“She’s tending to every important detail as a proud, expectant mother-to-be. She is now six and half months along,” Anthony shared. “As a new father-to-be, I’ve been taking care of family business and making sure we all eat well, with a healthy diet of good foods — plenty of greens, vegetables, fresh fruit, and protein-rich food. Lucia makes great smoothies for us. And we are all getting good sleep each night.”
Anthony and Lucia were first linked in the summer of 2016 and co-starred in the 2017 movie War Machine. The two got engaged in fall 2019 and married in 2020.
Congrats to the parents-to-be!
