Singer-actress Ashlee Simpson and her actor husband, Evan Ross, reportedly are expecting their first child.

E! News said Thursday that "L.O.V.E." singer Simpson, 30, younger sister of singer and fashion entrepreneur Jessica Simpson, and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1" star Ross, 26, would have a sibling to join Simpson's 6-year-old son, Bronx, from her previous marriage to Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz.

Simpson and Ross had married on Aug. 31 at the Greenwich, Connecticut, home of the groom's mother, music legend Diana Ross. The two had first appeared in public as a couple in July 2013, and Ross proposed in January while they were on a Hawaiian vacation.

Ross told E! last month that he and Simpson wanted children soon. "We're working on it," he said. "I would like it. As many as possible!"

Representatives for both Simpson and Ross did not respond to media requests for comment.
