Star of The Flash, Grant Gustin, announced that he and his wife LA Thoma are expecting their first child.

After two years of marriage, The Flash star Grant Gustin and his wife LA Thoma announced on Instagram that they’re expecting their first child. The Scarlet Speedster’s TV series is set to return in a few weeks time after season six was unceremoniously cut short due to the ongoing pandemic. But it’s not all bad news for Gustin, as his family is about to get a little bigger.

Grant Gustin posted a photo of himself and his wife holding up an ultrasound, explaining in the caption that they’re unbelievably excited. The couple posed with their dogs too, since they’re also part of the family. When The Flash returns to The CW at the beginning of March, Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen won’t have as much of a happy time – since he’ll be attempting to save Iris West-Allen from the Mirrorverse. Take a look at Gustin’s good news below.


Are you excited to see Grant Gustin return in The Flash season seven? How do you think the series will pick up after the end of season six? Sound-off in the comments below!

Grant Gustin’s The Flash is set to return this year on The CW. Here is the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.

The Flash will return on The CW in 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
