SNL's Tina Fey pregnant

04/27/2005 at 03:26 PM ET

TinafeyMy favorite thing about Saturday Night Live, head writer and cast member, Tina Fey, is going to be joining former SNL-er Ana Gasteyer in the ranks of Pregnant while on SNL this year because she’s pregnant!  The librarian-chic smartmouth who headlines "Weekend Update" is expecting her first child with husband Jeff Richmond in September.  I can’t wait to see her belly grow this summer.

When interviewed by the Sun-Times last year, Fey talked about motherhood and mentioned her friend (and future ”Wicked” star) Ana Gasteyer chose to quit "SNL" when her first baby came along. ”It’s the kind of thing … I wouldn’t know how I feel about it until it was actually happening,” said Fey, who also is working on a sitcom pilot for NBC.

No word on Maya Rudoph who is frequently rumored to be pregnant.

where did the announcement come from ?? I mean, did Tina make some sort of mention of it …?

Jennifer ( Fin) on

Ok people , i don’t wanna be the only person commenting on this… but i have something else to say ( I am kind of a SNL fan )

If she is due in September, then she is 4 months along already.. and I didn’t think she looked any different last week.

not sure if i should be happy or sad. i hope she won’t quit but she’s going to be in less skits now 😦 then again, she can play britney without extra paddings needed! 😀 great for her.

I’m so happy for her! Tina is going to make an excellent mom. She is my favorite on SNL. WU is the best! Congratulations Tina!

Lol I didn’t see that coming. I loved her on Mean Girls with Lindsay Lohan. She is gonna be a GREAT mom.

Jennifer ( Fin) on

Just think if she had become pregnant while Jimmy Fallon was still there, it could have really made thier little “weekend update” relationship look real.

I love the show, she is great and I am really HAPPY for her..

However, When Seth Meyers has a baby with somebody, I may be upset..

Maria on

If she’s a first-time mother, then she may barely be starting to show and hence the announcement. And since she doesn’t look like she subscribes to the Cheetos diet, she probably hasn’t put on weight. But I really hope that she plays Britney (sans-padding) in later shows, like Stephanie said. That would be hilarious. :oD

Congrats to Tina! I do not really watch SNL but I know her from the movie Mean Girls. She was hilarious in that!

Dianne on

Cool! She’s in her mid-30s isn’t she? Glad she is going to be a mom now. I remember she was talking to Conan when she first got married and when she saw her intended husband she knew she wanted babies with him (something to that effect).
She’s a local girl-grew up a few towns away from me-Upper Darby, PA.

Sarah, CBB Editor on

Yeah, she’s 34. Hubby Jeff is 10 years older. Pic of them together:

Hope on

there is a really cute picture of them here
