It’s about to be three’s company for Maya Rudolph.

The Bridesmaids star, 38, is pregnant with her third child, sources confirm to PEOPLE.

Rudolph and director Paul Thomas Anderson, 40, are already parents to daughters Pearl, 5, and Lucille, 16 months.

“I feel like everyone who has had more than one [child] says you should do it,” Rudolph said in 2009 when she announced she was expecting her second child. “It’s nice to have this experience.”

I love their daughters’ names and I’m excited to hear what they name this one. Congratulations to the family!

I love the “old lady” names. She should name it Mabel if it’s a girl!

ELO on

I didn’t even know she had a second child?! Anyway, Congratulations to Maya and her family!

Coraline on

Congrats!! I love the names Pearl and Lucille and I look forward to hearing what they name this one.

I like Maya! Congrats to them, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of Lucille.

Interesting that she waited so long after having her first kid to have her second….but didn’t wait much at all to have her third! Anyway, congrats to them! πŸ™‚

Oh, and assuming she waited until she was three months before confirming like she did last time (I just did a little digging, and she confirmed her pregnancy with Lucille in May 2009 and Lucille was born in November 2009), she’s due around September. πŸ™‚

I love Maya Rudolph! I hope if it’s another girl, they consider Minnie after Maya’s mom. That would be great. πŸ™‚

Aw, congratulations to them! I loved her in “Away We Go” and can’t wait for “Bridesmaids”.

Also excited to hear the names, since Pearl and Lucille are so nice.

Anyone notice this picture (,,20474596_6,00.html) and wonder? This was posted before the pregnancy announcement. I thought she had to be pregnant. Can’t wait to hear the name – I love old lady names!

CΓ©cile on

I was just thinking about some celeb babies that are never showed on the site and her name came to mind.Maybe ater the birth of her 3rd, we’ll be lucky to catch a a glimpse of the older siblings.

Jacqui on

…But seriously, would anyone actually say, “Yeah, we had two kids and I don’t recommend it. Stick with one.”?

Shannon on

Congrats! I wonder if they’ll have another girl.

Katie on

Hope she has a little boy to complete the family

CelebBabyLover on

Corrie- Actually, some sources list Pearl’s middle name as Minnie. Others list it as Bailey, though, so who knows. πŸ™‚

Katie- The family can be just as complete with another girl.

Jillian on

Catherine, I saw that, too! She looks more than 3 mo to me!
Even if they used Minnie as a middle name for one……doesn’t mean it can’t be a first name for another child.

What ethnic background is Maya? I love her skin and her freckles – such a beautiful mix of races – just not sure which ones πŸ™‚ Would love to see what her daughters look like – I’ll bet they are cute!
Plus her baby name choices are adorable!

Amber on

Not sure about Maya’s daddy but her mother is the late great Minnie Riperton who was black.

K on

I don’t hear anything about them getting married! You can have babies together but don’t want to marry? Three babies and no ring, it wouldn’t be me.

K on

BTW, Maya’s father is jewish.

Jillian on

You can have babies together and not get married…..yes you can!

annachestnut on

Minnie Riperton says Maya’s name in “Loving you…”. So sweet.

J on

Yes, Maya’s father is Jewish, he is a composer, she is also the childhood best friend of Gwyneth Paltrow, when Gwyneth was the host of SNL back in I think 01 or 02 they showed some pictures of them when they were young.

Congrats to her, and her partner, I wonder if she is doing a movie, and they are going to write it in, like they did for the other 2 movies she did while pregnant.

Jacquii on

Very classy lady. Love her.
