We already knew that Ellie Kemper was unbreakable.
Now, we have confirmation that Ellie Kemper is also unbelievably happy…
… because she’s a first-time mother!
The actress, who rose to fame on The Office and then rose to a lot more fame on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, has welcomed a baby into the world, People Magazine confirms.
It is the first child for Kemper and husband Michael Koman.
Unfortunately, no other details are available at the moment; not the name, gender or any of the measurements.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy for Kemper and it doesn’t mean you can’t send along your very best wishes.
The actress and her husband got married in 2012.
In April, Kemper announced she was expecting during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
“[My pregnancy] didn’t really affect filming until the very end,” she told the host, adding:
“We had a table read and I saw that my character was supposed to be on a roller coaster… I was Googling pregnant women on roller coasters.”
Fallon then went ahead and gave the then-pregnant star a pint of Ben & Jerry’s The Tonight Dough ice cream.
How did Kemper handle the whole roller coaster situation?
“Because it was still so early on, we decided we’ll just tell people that I have a back injury and that’s why I can’t ride the roller coaster,” she explained.
“I could not act like I had a back injury. I kept forgetting I had one so I would do things someone with a back injury can’t do.”
As a result, Kemper said she had to let executive producer Tina Fey in on the baby secret earlier than originally planned.
HA! We love it.
And we love Ellie Kemper. This is such exciting news!
UPDATE: It’s a boy!
Kemper’s co-star, Tituss Burgess, was first to share the exciting news and the baby’s sex, writing this morning:
“My Ellie had her baby. A son. But why am I emotional. He’s not mine. Also someone is gonna call her mom. I cannot wrap my head around it.”
