An official at her agency broke the news during a phone call with Asia Economic Daily on Thursday, revealing that the 37-year-old actress is pregant.
The actress is said to be taking extra caution being in her early stages of pregnancy, even taking her physical condition into account when choosing her Oscar de la Renta wedding gown.
Fans are responding excitedly to the news, saying "Just how beautiful will this baby be with parents who are both fantastic looking?"
Ko and Jang made headlines last November after admitting to their two-year romantic relationship, confirming dating rumors that they had sparked since first meeting as co-stars in the 1999 film "Love Wind, Love Song".
The star couple, dubbed Korea's equivalent of Brangelina, further fueled the public's interest in their upcoming nuptials when they unveiled their studio wedding photo two days ago.
The wedding ceremony, to be held at Seoul's Shilla Hotel on May 2, will be officiated by prominent Korean literature critic Lee Eo-ryung with veteran Korean actor Park Joong-hoon as the host.
Singer Shin Seung-hun, a close friend of the couple, will also be singing at the event.
