The actor will be a dad for the first time.

Actor Jesse Eisenberg is reportedly expecting his first child with longtime love Anna Strout.

The 33-year-old Now You See Me star and the charity worker have been together off and on for over a decade, and according to E! News, the couple is now taking its relationship to the next level by becoming parents.

The baby news comes several months after the pair allegedly rekindled its romance in January (16).

Before becoming an item again, Jesse and Anna's relationship status was questionable for several years - they began dating in 2002 before calling it quits in 2012.

Eisenberg was romantically linked to his The Double co-star Mia Wasikowska during his four-year break from Anna, but it appeared the former lovebirds had too much of a connection and they were often pictured together in cafes and airports during their alleged relationship break.

Jesse has been notoriously silent when it comes to addressing his private life in public, but in a rare candid moment during a 2011 Seventeen magazine interview, he confessed that Strout was the only woman he had ever had a serious committed relationship with.

Asked for a little romance advice, the flustered actor said, "Oh God, I don't know, just be nice! I've had one girlfriend my whole life. I don't have good advice!"

He also hinted that humanitarian Anna's commitment to improving society is what has kept him devoted to her for over a decade, adding, "I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting. I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations. My job is so selfish and focused on my own vanity that I like to surround myself with people who are actually helping people throughout their day."
