Ellie Kemper Gives Birth to First Child With Husband Michael Koman

The 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' star welcomed her first child just a few months after announcing her pregnancy on Jimmy Fallon's 'The Tonight Show'.

AceShowbiz - Ellie Kemper has welcomed her first child with husband Michael Koman. PEOPLE can confirm that the "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" actress has given birth to the baby, though other details including the newborn's sex and weight are still unknown.

Kemper, who got married to her husband in 2012, announced that she was expecting her first kid back in April during a taping of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". At the time, she told host Jimmy Fallon that she kept her pregnancy a secret while shooting the second season of her Netflix show.

"[My pregnancy] didn't really affect filming until the very end," she shared, adding that she had to break the news to show creator Tina Fey earlier than expected after she found out during a table read that her character was going to be on a roller coaster.

After publicly revealing that she's pregnant, Kemper said in an interview in early July that she didn't understand why people, including random strangers, liked to touch her growing belly. "Now I'm showing and 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," she shared. "It's actually crazy."

"In a way, I think it's a nice reminder of humanity, but then I quickly go back to the idea that you wouldn't do this if I wasn't pregnant," she continued, adding, "I'm not a very touchy feely comfortable person so with someone touching me, I'm like, 'Ahh personal space violation.' It was like touching my digestion. There was nothing quite there."
