ER star Parminder Nagra and her photographer beau, James Stenson, are expecting their first child this summer, the actress confirms to Usmagazine.com exclusively. “We are thrilled and overjoyed at the prospect of becoming first time parents,” Nagra tells Us. The couple will tie the knot as well. “Yes, our plans are to get married but there’s no confirmed date yet,” Nagra says. ” We have been together for nearly 7 years.”
Nagra, who was born in England, will continue to live in L.A. with Stenson. “The plan is to stay in L.A. We still have a home in London, so eventually the plan is to be bi-costal, but who knows what the future holds. We are just taking it one day at a time.”
Don’t expect to see Nagra – who plays Dr. Neela Rasgotra – sporting a baby bump on the show. “There are no plans to write the pregnancy in the show,” she tells Us. Nagra also says she doesn’t plan on taking any time off work. “I feel like I will want to work, but who knows what I’ll feel like when the baby arrives,” she tells Us.
The last episode of the emergency room drama is scheduled to air in February 2009.
