Ellie Kemper Reveals She Welcomed Baby No. 2…1 Month Ago

It’s official: Kimmy Schmidt is taking on motherhood for a second time.

Over the weekend, actress Ellie Kemper revealed that she and her husband, Michael Koman, welcomed their second child, a baby boy named Matthew…one month ago. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star, 39, announced the exciting news on her personal Instagram account.

Kemper shared a first-look photo of little Matthew and wrote, “Happy 1-Month Birthday to our baby boy, Matthew! He has inherited his dad’s brown hair and his mom’s desire to be carried around all day in a baby sling. He’s a good boy.”

We first learned that Kemper was expecting her second child back in June when her personal stylist, Jessica Paster, accidentally announced the news on Instagram. In a post, she referred to the actress as “this beautiful mommy to be…” Kemper later confirmed that she was pregnant.

Kemper and Koman have been married since 2012. They tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in New York City, with several familiar faces—like Kristen Wiig and Mindy Kaling—in attendance. They also have a 3-year-old son named James.

Congratulations to the proud parents!
