Ellie Kemper is now a mom! The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star just gave birth to her first child with her husband Michael Koman, People confirms. On Monday, her Netflix co-star Tituss Burgess revealed the sex of her baby—a boy!
"My Ellie had her baby. A son. But why am I emotional. He's not mine," Burgess wrote on Facebook. "Also someone is gonna call her mom. I cannot wrap my head around it. Like she went into labor and pushed someone out."
Kemper first announced her pregnancy on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, telling the audience, “I have big news. I’m pregnant!” Since then, we’ve kept our eyes peeled for every stylish baby bump-filled appearance by the mom-to-be.
Months later on The Late Show, she crossed an item off her maternity to-do list: eating sardines. “I’m a little disappointed in myself because before getting pregnant I resolved to do all these things during my pregnancy to nurse a healthy pregnancy. And so I’m finding in these final weeks that I didn’t do any of them,” she told Stephen Colbert.
The selfless mother then chowed down on a plate of sardines, despite the fact that she dislikes the fishy food. “I am a selfless mother!” she joked.
We’re sure she will be an excellent new mom. Congratulations to the happy family.
