In a case of TV soaps colliding, two former stars of Home and Away and Neighbours have announced that they're expecting their first child together.

Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor, who spent time in Summer Bay and Ramsay St. respectively, shared the happy news that they're set to become first-time parents on Tuesday.

Soap stars' baby news

The Aussie couple took to Instagram to post a sweet pic of their 'Papa bear' and 'Mama bear' slippers, along with a tiny pair for their 'Baby bear'.

While Bob and Eliza — who starred together on the US hit TV series, The 100 — uploaded the same photo they added their own captions.

"Gearing up for the greatest roles ever. Big little shoes to fill and we cannot wait!" gushed Bob, 37.

In her caption, Eliza, 32, opened up about the husband-and-wife duo's journey to parenthood.

"Our journey to pregnancy was not always smooth sailing but we are elated to announce our little bundle is officially on the way," she wrote.

Bob and Eliza tied the knot on May 5, 2019, which surprised fans as the private pair had kept their love under wraps until then.

Eliza, who played Clarke on the sci-fi show, later opened up about how her friendship with Bob — who played Belamy — slowly changed into something more romantic over the years.

In early 2020, the couple revealed the sad news that Eliza had suffered a miscarriage while filming the final season of The 100 the year before.

Prior to The 100, Bob played Drew Curtis on Home and Away from 2006 to 2008 while Eliza appeared as Janae Timmins on Neighbours from 2003 to 2008.
