Tina Fey is pregnant with her second child! The forty-year-old mom announced that she’s five months pregnant with child #2 during a recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show, said to be scheduled to air tomorrow, April 12, 2011. The 30 Rock star and husband Jeff Richmond are parents to only daughter, 5 and 1/2 year-old Alice. Tina Fey shared her baby bump news while she was promoting her new book, Bossypants, and an upcoming SNL episode.
In Bossypants, Tina Fey talks about how she feared having a second child because of her age, and expressed the guilt sometimes associated with only having one child. Tina said for days on end she would carry around this baggage, trying to decide whether or not she wanted another child, explaining that her daughter would be the only child in her class without a sibling and would wish she had a baby sister. Finally, one day Tina Fey went for her annual gynecologist exam and she freed herself of all of her fears, writing “I broke down”.
“I went for my annual check-up, and tired of carrying this anxiety around, burst into tears the moment she said hello. I laid it all out for her, and the main thing I took away from our conversation was the kind of simple observation that only an impartial third party can provide: ‘Either way, everything will be fine,'” Tina Fey writes in her new memoir, Bossypants.
As it turns out, everything is looking fine for 5 months pregnant Tina Fey and is still even more promising after she is done with Hollywood or even vice versa.
Comedian and author Tina Fey writes, “What’s so great about work anyway? Work won’t visit you when you’re old. Work won’t drive you to get a mammogram and take you out after for soup.”
