Owen Wilson’s prepping for his next big role: First-time fatherhood!

The funky-nosed funnyguy — who’s leaving audiences in stitches in the hit holiday comedy Little Fockers — is expecting his first child with girlfriend of one year Jade Duell, a rep for the couple confirmed on Monday.

We didn’t even know Owen had a new girlfriend – it’s great to see he’s found happiness!

“Owen Wilson and Jade Duell are happy to be expecting a baby,” his rep told PEOPLE this evening.

In fact, Jade’s about ready to pop, pals of the pair tell Us Weekly.

Buell is currently in Hawaii, where she’s “due any day,” says one source.

Owen and Jade are using the days before the baby bundle’s big debut to freshen up on their newborn knowledge.

Those Little Tykes sure smell good, but they don’t come with instruction manuals, you know?

The 42-year-old actor, previously romantically-linked to Kate Hudson and Sheryl Crow, “has been been doing research and learning as much as he can. He’s super into it and asks a lot of questions to make sure he knows what’s going on every step of the way.”
