Ellie Kemper is a mom! The ‘Office’ alum and ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ actress has finally given birth to her 1st child, a baby BOY, and we could not be more thrilled for her and her hubby, Michael Koman! Get all the precious details below.
Ellie Kemper, 36, and her husband of four years, Michael Koman, welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world, PEOPLE confirmed on Aug. 1 — how sweet! And although we know the pair have indeed welcomed their precious bundle of joy into the world, not many details have been revealed yet! But there’s no question the happy couple is likely completely over the moon — after all, this is their first child!
During her pregnancy, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star kept many baby details under wraps, so maybe she’s doing the same with the baby’s birth. But we DO know she had a baby boy, which was even a surprise for her as the actress and her husband decided not to find out the sex of their child until the birth.
And it was actually Ellie’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt costar Tituss Burgess who was first to share the exciting news and the baby’s sex. “My Ellie had her baby. A son. But why am I emotional. He’s not mine. Also someone is gonna call her mom. I cannot wrap my head around it,” he wrote on Facebook on Aug. 1. Aw!
But one thing Ellie DID make perfectly clear while she was pregnant with her newborn? She does NOT want her belly touched! In fact, when the actress was nearing the end of her pregnancy, she shared with Today that many strangers had tried to steal a tummy rub — and she was not having it!
“I don’t know what goes through a person’s mind — a stranger’s mind no less — when they think, ‘Oh yes, your stomach is something that now belongs to me and I can touch it,’” Ellie said. She also noted that she’s not a “very touchy, feely, comfortable person” and even described the experience as “actually crazy.”
And we kind of have to agree! But now that Ellie has finally given birth, it looks like she’s out of the woods on the whole tummy-touching thing — at least for now! Congrats again to the happy couple, we wish them all the best in their parenting endeavors!
