Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Ellie Kemper is pregnant!
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (aka actress Ellie Kemper) has revealed she’s pregnant
Females are strong as hell! When will we ever get that song out of our heads? Not anytime soon I’m afraid mamas, because not only is The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt back on Friday (yes!) but Kimmy Schmidt actress Ellie Kemper herself is having a baby!
Ellie, 35 also known for her roles in Bridesmaids and 21 Jump Street, declared that her and husband Michael Koman are expecting their first child together on The Tonight Show. Her and writer Michael have been married since 2012.
‘I have big news, I’m pregnant!’ she told host Jimmy Fallon, and talked about how her pregnancy affected filming for the new season of Kimmy Schmidt.
‘It didn't really affect filming until the very end,’ said Kemper. 'We had a table read and I saw that my character was supposed to be on a rollercoaster... It was still very early on, but I felt like a pregnant lady on a rollercoaster is not ideal.'
‘Because it was so early on we decided “oh we'll just tell people that I have a back injury and that's why I can't ride the rollercoaster,"’ but it was easier said than done...
‘I could not act like I had a back injury. Someone said, “Oh, what's wrong?” and words escaped me. “I sprained my spine.” I'm a bad liar. I kept forgetting I had one, so I would do things someone with a back injury can't do. They'd yell “lunch” and I'd leap up and cartwheel to catering. You can't do that. At the wrap party, I completely forgot. I was dancing. My friend she said, “How is your back?” I'm like “it's OK” ... It was terrible. I think everyone saw right through it.’
