Another SNL baby on the way

06/17/2005 at 11:57 AM ET

Newsnl1 After seasons of pregnancy speculation, which has always turned out to be false, SNL cast member Maya Rudolph, 32, is truly expecting. Whispers were growing louder after she began wearing looser, more flowing clothes, and accepting congratulations on the pregnancy from fans at Saturday-Night-Live.

However, today’s People Insider spotted "A very pregnant Maya Rudolph enjoying a late dinner at Mr. Cecil’s California Ribs in Sherman Oaks, Calif. She and four friends dined on barbecued chicken, hush puppies and grilled corn on the cob with a chili lime butter. This is the second cast member who is currently pregnant-Tina Fey is also expecting her first child later this year. Looks like Maya’s expecting a summer arrival! Dad is Maya’s boyfriend of three years, Paul Thomas Anderson, 35,  (Boogie Nights, Magnolia). (Thanks Shannon!)

Maya must be due earlier. Tina is barely even showing yet, and Maya is apparently “very pregnant.”

Ahh, I knew it! It was ridiculously obvious at the season finale of SNL. And did anybody when Seth Meyers actually rubbed her belly at the end of an episode recently?!? Icing on the cake baby!

This makes me happy. She is one of my favorite SNL castmembers. I just hope she doesn’t leave when she has the baby. I was sooo sad to see Ana and Molly leave, so hopefully Tina and Maya will stay!

As I was watching the last epidsodes, especially the one where she played Donatella, it was so obvious she had a baby belly. I kept wondering why it wasn’t announced, and now I know I was right! Congrats to her!

Haha, I remember noticing on the Jack Black episode that Ana looked pregnant, and so I asked in an SNL chatroom and everyone thought I was crazy but someone who was in the chatroom posted it on their SNL site and…it was true.

Congrats Tina and Maya!

Her boyfriend of the past 3 years is Paul Thomas Anderson….the very acclaimed director.

Isn’t she Minnie Riperton’s (Loving You singer) daughter?

Sarah, CBB Editor on

Yes, she is. 🙂

Sarah, CBB Editor on

No, actually it’s not. It’s their first. :)You might be thinking of Ana Gasteyer or Molly Shannon, other SNL-ers who also have children.
