She doesn’t have kids on her show, but Maya Rudolph‘s offscreen role as mom continues to expand.

The Up All Night actress and director Paul Thomas Anderson, have informed NBC that she is pregnant with their fourth child, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although the writers had originally planned to work the pregnancy into her character’s storyline, recent events — including star Christina Applegate leaving the show — has put everything at a standstill, THR reports.

Rudolph, 40, and Anderson, 42, are already parents to daughters Pearl, 7, and Lucille, 3, and son Jack, 19 months.

The actress’s rep did not return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

I saw someone who went to a concert of hers (She’s in a band, I think) and there are pictures, and she’s definitely pregnant.

Congratulations to them!

I wasn’t aware 4 children was a ton of kids. We currently have 2 but may go for a third…is that a lot by some peoples’ standards? Yes. Is it right for our family? Possibly.

Congratulations Maya 🙂

Just curious, why are people against her having so many children telling her to “stitch it up” (i.e, stop having sex) rather than get her tubes tied?

Are people really so stupid that they cannot understand the concept of large(r) families?


You do not know the amount of time she spends with her family! You think working moms can’t give their kids proper attention? Quit being a judgmental git!
