If you're Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, first comes the HBO show, then love, and then the baby: Paquin's rep tells CNN that the "True Blood" actress and her husband/co-star Moyer are expecting their first child together.
Paquin, 29, and Moyer, 42, wed in August 2010 in Malibu after meeting on the set of HBO's sexy supernatural series. They're expecting their bundle of joy in the fall.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Moyer has two other children – Billy, 12, and Lilac, 10 – from a previous relationship.
Both "True Blood" stars will be back for the show's fifth season when it launches June 10.

As we get ready for a fifth season of sexy supernatural drama in Bon Temps, Alan Ball is planning to ease up on the reins.
The "True Blood" creator has announced that he'd step down as showrunner following the fifth season, reports the New York Times. There's still a big "if" surrounding the announcement, however, as a sixth season of "True Blood" isn't guaranteed.
"If we proceed to season six, the show will remain in the very capable hands of the talented team of writers and producers who have been with the show for a number of years," HBO said. "Alan would take a supervisory role and not be the day-to-day showrunner."
Meanwhile, Ball's still expected to develop show concepts for Cinemax and HBO (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN), and to that end, will be bringing a new series set in a small town in Pennsylvania Amish Country to Cinemax.

As it turns out, Joe Manganiello's wolfish "True Blood" character Alcide doesn't strip down on the show purely for your enjoyment. Perhaps hard to believe, but true, Manganiello tells Out magazine in an interview.
"As far as the butt cheek stuff goes," the 35-year-old actor says, "it just makes sense. It's not gratuitous; it's realistic. If you're a werewolf and you transform, you lose everything and there are your butt cheeks."
"True Blood," Manganiello continues, "is a deconstruction of supernatural creatures. It's not like those other werewolf projects, where you magically reappear with tiny jean shorts on." FULL POST

After whetting fans appetites with a few teasers for the second season of "Game of Thrones," HBO's ready to unleash the real thing.
The network unveiled a more complete trailer for "Game of Thrones" over the weekend, one that includes glimpses of Daenerys, King Joffrey, and Peter Dinklage's Tyrion, who declares before the clip ends, "I understand the way this game is played."
Even though it's just a minute long, no doubt many of you agree with Cinema Blend that the second season is "poised to be even grander than last year."

[Editor's Note: If you haven't watched the finale, look out below. This post contains spoilers for the September 11 episode of HBO’s “True Blood."]
Confession: Because last night’s finale was infinitely better than last season’s disappointing end, half my notes were written in all caps and peppered with four letter words. Help yourself to some of Maxine’s pork rind casserole, ‘cause we’ve got a lot of ground to cover.
We joined Jesus and Lafayette (and Marnie, sort of) at a scene familiar to pretty much every couple at one point or another: The Awkward Brunch where stony silence with a side of home fries is the only item on the menu.
Jesus apologized to Lafayette for everything that had transpired during their time with the coven. "LaMarnie" took this as an opportunity to voice her displeasure at Jesus’ forcibly casting Antonia out and she stabbed him in the hand with a fork and took him prisoner.
