Scott Elrod (ex-Joe, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) is going to be a daddy!

The actor shared the news that he and his girlfriend, Vanessa, were expecting by posting on Instagram a screenshot of a text exchange he had with his mother. "Sending love to everyone who has influenced me as it has added to who I have become," he wrote. "My number one, Vanessa, and I have been blessed with a little peanut and now I get the greatest gift of all which is to channel that love to him."

And in the messages, Elrod's mother seemed confident that her boy could do the job. "Honey, I have zero reservations about you being a great daddy," she wrote. "Just amazing my baby boy is going to be a daddy. Love you so much!"
