Break out the Peeno Noir! The "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star and her writer husband Michael Koman have welcomed their first child! And while the couple hasn't announced the baby's gender yet, Kemper's co-star Tituss Burgess took to Facebook yesterday to let us all know in a hilarious status update that it's a BOY!

"My Ellie had her baby," he wrote. "A son. But why am I emotional. He's not mine. I cannot wrap my head around it. Like she went into labor and pushed someone out. I cant process it. In fact, when she told me she was preggers—correction I told her cause her nose was swollen...she denied it but Im from the south.. if we dream about fish we know someone in the fam is pregs—anyways when we spoke about it i laughed..because on the first day of filming i looked her square in the eyes and I said "bitch..dont get pregnant cause I dont have time for it." She laughed and said trust i wont...I feel such betrayal and happiness."

Ok, this is the cutest thing ever! And that nose thing is spot-on—such a dead giveaway! Totally forgot about the fish prophecy, too!

No other details about the little guy have been released—like his name, for example!—but the actress told Us Weekly back in June that it won't be too unconventional. "It will not have a wild name," she explained, adding that it will be "fairly traditional."

Now I'm totally hoping they went with Tituss, aren't you?

Kemper first announced her pregnancy during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" back in April, and to celebrate the host ceremoniously presented her with a pint of Ben & Jerry's The Tonight Dough ice cream.

"Anyone who knows me, I love Ben & Jerry's," Kemper said. "I'm not just saying this because it's your show, Tonight Dough is my favorite flavor. I've been having a pint every other night."

Now that the baby's here, we're thinking a few tubs of Chunky Monkey and Milk & Cookies are in order.

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
