Tina Fey compares writer's strike to maternity leave

Tinaandalice30 Rock’s Tina Fey, 37, is happy to be back at work following the writer’s strike, but it breaks her heart to leave daughter Alice Zenobia, 2.

The strike was a bit like the maternity leave that I didn’t have, except for my duties on the union line. Now my daughter is old enough to say, ‘You don’t go to work, you stay inside.’ That breaks my heart.

Alice’s dad is composer Jeff Richmond.

I thought Alice’s father was a comedy writer?

Sarah’s note: Well, he writes, but it’s the music for comedies. He composes it. He used to work on SNL and now is on 30 Rock with Tina.

The kid looks just like her, you can almost see the sarcasm as she stares at the cameras. Can’t wait to see her on Weekend Update in 25 years. Love the name Alice too.
