It’s been a great week for the stars of The Good Wife, including Josh Charles. Despite the fact that his character was killed off the show in a shocking twist no one saw coming, the news is good for him this week as he makes the announcement that he’s going to be a father! Additionally, The Good Wife was snubbed at last night’s Emmy Awards, but the fact that she took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series has Julianna Margulies feeling pretty good about the award show.
Charles and his wife, Sophie Flack, married last year. While everyone else was getting ready for last night’s Emmys over the weekend, he and his wife were out and about in Beverly Hills at a charity event, where the actors wife debuted the best accessory of the night; a growing baby bump.
The couple has no other children, so this little one will be a first. It’s exciting news for the soon-to-be parents. The news of his wife’s pregnancy comes not too long after his character made his exit from the hit show The Good Wife. When fans watched Will Gardner as he was shot and killed in the courtroom, they were saddened. His character was a show favorite. However, Charles was ready to move on from the drama, and producers weren’t about to let that potential ratings boost go.
“It’s been one of the greatest gigs for me in my entire career, but at the end of last year, my contract was up and I was just ready to kind of move on. It is kind of amazing. We’ve been able to keep it a secret for an entire year,” he previously told David Letterman.
Now that the actor has moved on from the show, he’s got a bit more time to spend with his wife and their son or daughter when the baby finally arrives.
