    Dr. William Petit and Christine Paluf were married on Aug. 5 in West Hartford.

    Dr. William Petit, the lone survivor of the home invasion in Cheshire in 2007, is an expectant father.

    Petit and his wife Christine have announced that they are expecting a baby.

    Dr. Petit and Christine Paluf met while she was working as a volunteer for the Petit Family Foundation and they married in August 2012.

    Dr. Petit set up the foundation in memory of his family, Jennifer Hawke Petite and their two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, who were killed in the home invasion on July 23, 2007.

    Dr. Petit said the couple does not plan to learn the baby’s gender before he or she is born. They want to be surprised.

    The family’s spokesman, Rick Healey, told People Magazine that the baby is due in December.
