SNL star Maya Rudolph is expecting her second child with her partner, director Paul Thomas Anderson, she reveals. “I wasn’t planning on sharing it, but yes I am pregnant!” In her upcoming summer film, Away We Go, Maya Rudolph’s character is pregnant. The 36-year-old acknowledges how life can imitate art: “I know it’s really weird timing.”
Already mom to 3 1/2-year-old daughter Pearl, Maya says her current pregnancy is “totally different” than the first time around. “The first time you are like wide-eyed: ‘What are we doing?, Who’s coming?, How do we take care of them?’ But this time, I’m like I have to sit down, I’m pregnant.’”
She adds, “When you have a three-and-a-half-year-old, you don’t have time to rest and nap and do all the those sweet pampering type things you did for yourself the first time. You are like, ‘I got to get to bed!’”
Maya adds that she’s excited about the upcoming addition to their family: “I feel like everyone who has had more then one [child], says you should do it. It’s nice to have this experience.”
Congratulations to the Rudolph-Anderson family!
