“I am looking forward to being able to impart unconditional love, wisdom, and life lessons,” added Daniel of her dreams of motherhood as per PEOPLE. “We can’t wait for the ability to show our first child the world.”

Meanwhile, Daniel, who came to stardom in the 1990s with her identical twin sister Cynthia on the teen drama Sweet Valley High, has faced adversity, including a difficult and life-threatening fight with stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2012.

“It happened so suddenly,” Daniel told PEOPLE in 2014 of her cancer diagnosis. “There is no way I would have ever gotten through this without my family. My family is everything to me and I feel like they saw me through this.”
