TMZ reports that Olivia Munn welcomed her first child on Nov. 24. Neither Munn nor John Mulaney have commented officially on the news, though Page Six reports that Mulaney announced the pregnancy during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

"We're having a baby together. I was nervous when I was about to say the news," he said. "I'm gonna be a dad!"

Munn kept most of her pregnancy out of the spotlight.

"It's hard to be pregnant for the first time and have anybody say anything besides, like, 'Congratulations,'" she told the Los Angeles Times in November. "There's no way anyone could know what any of [Mulaney's] relationships were or what our relationship is."
