Michelle Trachtenberg has said she’s delighted that her former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar is pregnant with her first child.

News of Sarah Michelle’s pregnancy broke last month and Michelle told reporters that she was “jumping for joy” when she found out.

She added that she’s in constant communication with the mum-to-be and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr: “We talk every other day. I’m super excited!

“I’m so very happy for her and Freddie. She’s going to be an extraordinary mom. Good people make great parents.”

Michelle played Dawn Summers in the teen show, the younger sister of Sarah Michelle’s vampire slaying Buffy.
