Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts and Tony and Emmy nominee Carrie Coon are expecting their first child.

The two met while working on the Steppenwolf production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf; the subsequent Broadway transfer earned Letts a Tony Award for his performance as George and Coon, who played Honey, a nomination. Both can be seen in the film The Post, while Letts also plays husband to fellow Tony winner Laurie Metcalf and father to Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird.

Letts won the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize for Drama for August: Osage County; his latest play, The Minutes, recently premiered at Chicago’s Steppenwolf with a Broadway staging on the horizon.

Coon, an Emmy nominee for Fargo and a favorite on The Leftovers, recently returned to the stage in New York Theatre Workshop’s Mary Jane.


The two were wed (in a hospital) in September 2013.
