LONDON – David Schwimmer and his British wife Zoe Buckman are expecting their first child in the New Year.

The couple, who married quietly in June, met three years ago when Schwimmer was in directing Run Fatboy Run with Simon Pegg.

Buckman, a waitress, moved to L.A. with Schwimmer soon after they met.

Schwimmer achieved worldwide fame played geeky Ross Geller in long-running NBC comedy Friends, but has subsequently sought to protect his private life.

Reps for the couple said that they “couldn’t be more thrilled,” London's Daily Mail reported.
