Majandra Delfino & David Walton Expecting First Child
There’s a baby on the way for David Walton and Majandra Delfino!
The actors will welcome their first child this summer, they tell PEOPLE exclusively.
“We couldn’t be more excited — or wildly unprepared,” say Walton, 33, and former Roswell star Delfino. ”It’s going to be fantastic!”
The couple wed on March 18 at Trinity Cathedral in Miami.
Delfino, 30, was most recently on the ABC Family drama State of Georgia. Next up for former Perfect Couples star Walton is the NBC comedy Bent, slated to premiere later this year.
It was a perfect day for Perfect Couples star David Walton and actress Majandra Delfino: The pair tied the knot on March 19 in Miami.
Delfino’s former Roswell costar, Katherine Heigl, served as a bridesmaid, and guests included Heigl’s husband Josh Kelley, as well as Walton’s costar Hayes MacArthur and wife Ali Larter, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
The ceremony took place at Trinity Cathedral, the oldest church in Miami, and the reception was held at The Surf Club ballroom, one of Miami’s oldest private beach clubs – and one with a special meaning for Delfino. She had her debutant ball there at 19.
Following the reception, Delfino, 30, Walton, 32, and their 200 guests kept the celebration going at an after-party that included cigar rollers, Cuban coffee and empanadas. DJ Hottpants entertained guests with tunes until the wee hours of the morning.
“We really wanted to embrace all that is Miami by combining old-world Miami with the fresh new scene of art and design,” the newlyweds told PEOPLE. “And of course, we had to embrace that crazy Miami party energy with a party that lasted all night!”
But the festivities weren’t over yet. The next day guests were treated to brunch at Soho Beach House.
As for fashion, on her big day Delfino walked down the aisle in a Valentino gown with earrings by Samuel Gatz. For the reception, she wore a Provonias dress, while the bridesmaids were decked out in Nektar De Stagni jewelry.
So as you all know Majandra and her long-time boyfriend David Walton tied the knot 2 weeks ago and well Majandra, being the awesome person that she is, sent me a beautiful wedding picture for her fans to see. Enjoy!
This sucks and is awesome at the same time. It’s awesome because we finally know when the show premieres but it sucks for me because I will be in Dublin for the Glee concert and wont be back til July 3rd that’s very upsetting

ABC FAMILY ANNOUNCES PICK-UP OF “SWITCHED AT BIRTH,” “THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING” AND “THE GREAT STATE OF GEORGIA”
Burbank, CA (Monday, January 31, 2011) – Michael Riley, President, ABC Family, announced today the pick-up of two one-hour dramas, “Switched at Birth” and “The Nine Lives of Chloe King,” and the half-hour multi-cam comedy series, “The Great State of Georgia.” The three original series will debut on the network later this year.
“We continue to offer our Millennial viewers a rich and diverse mix of authentic, optimistic and heartfelt programming,” said Riley. “We’re excited about these new series and believe they will be great additions to an already strong slate that, at its core, is filled with engaging, strong, funny and relatable characters.”
“Switched at Birth,” a one-hour scripted drama, tells the story of two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing at an early age due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a poor neighborhood. Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls. Lizzy Weiss (“Blue Crush,” “Cashmere Mafia”), Paul Stupin (“Make It or Break It”) and John Ziffren (“Melissa & Joey,” “Make It or Break It”) serve as executive producers. “Switched at Birth” stars newcomer Katie Leclerc as Daphne Vasquez; Vanessa Marano (“Gilmore Girls”) as Bay Kennish; Constance Marie (“George Lopez”) as Regina Vasquez; D.W. Moffett (“Friday Night Lights”) as John Kennish; Lea Thompson (“Back to the Future,” “Caroline in the City”) as Kathryn Kennish; and Lucas Grabeel (“High School Muisical”) as Toby Kennish.
In the one-hour scripted drama “The Nine Lives of Chloe King,” Chloe King is looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her friends and single mother, just like every other year…that is until she starts developing heightened abilities and discovers she’s being pursued by a mysterious figure. Chloe soon learns she’s part of an ancient race which has been hunted by human assassins for millennia — and that she may be their only hope for ultimate survival. “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” will be executive-produced by Dan Berendsen (“Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” “Hannah Montana: The Movie”) and John Ziffren (“Melissa & Joey,” “Make It or Break It”) with Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Gossip Girl,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Gina Girolamo. The drama is based on the book series The Nine Lives of Chloe King by Celia Thomson. The series will star Skyler Samuels (“The Gates”) as Chloe King; Amy Pietz (“The Office,” “Caroline in the City”) as Meredith King; Grey Damon (“True Blood,” “Friday Night Lights”) as Brian; newcomer Grace Phipps as Amy; Benjamin Stone (“10 Things I Hate About You”) as Alek; Alyssa Diaz (“Southland”) as Jasmine; and Ki Hong Lee (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”) as Paul.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the show gets picked up
Earlier in the year, I took a look at what the networks were doing with their pilot season, as the time is growing nearer and nearer for shows to be picked up and decisions to be made. Here is a look at some of the major cable networks out there and what they’re doing. Since each network is so different, it’s kind of hard to see trends or really compare each development slate, so I separated things out a bit more and let you know what exactly I’d pick up. Some of my personal pick-ups are due to things the network’s losing this season, but some are just for personal reasons, i.e. I’d like to see how a particular show would go. There are several shows that are pretty much going to be picked up that I personally didn’t pick up, but I was never one for conventionality.
Number of Shows in Contention: 9
Most Promising: Cloak & Dagger, a drama about two teens who develop superpowers after being forced to take experimental drugs
Least Promising: The Untitled Brenda Hampton Project sounds like The Facts of Life meets a Hallmark Movie of the Week
Coolest Casting: Majandra Delfino in The Great State of Georgia, just because it’s nice to see her working
What I’d Pick Up: Switched at Birth, The Lying Game, The Great State of Georgia
Val just informed me that TNT decided to do a split season which means next weeks episode 2.6 is the final episode for the 1st half of the season and then this summer sometime they will show the 2nd half of the season. This means we have to wait for Majandra until the summer
I hope we get plenty of other things in the meantime.
