People reports that the “Bones” star is pregnant. She and Hornsby, the man who plays Rickety Cricket on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” will welcome the baby later this year. The couple got married last September.

So Elizabeth Banks is now a mom, Deschanel will soon become one ... if these sorts of news items come in threes, perhaps we can expect another baby announcement before week’s end.
