The happy couple got married in September 2015, "and thought that they might adopt.

"But then Sarah got pregnant naturally, and it was the best news ever!" Richardson said in an ENQUIRER exclusive.

As ENQUIRER readers know, the '70s TV sweetheart was rushed to the hospital with a faulty feeding tube earlier this year — and barely escaped death.

Richardson had been placed on the feeding tube as the result of a rare disease called cardio-esophageal achalasia, which prevents her from eating and keeping food down.
