Ellie Kemper Celebrates Her Pregnancy with Tonight Dough Ice Cream

Congrats are in order for Ellie Kemper and husband Michael Koman, who are expecting their first child!

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star announced the happy news on The Tonight Show on Wednesday.

"I have big news! I'm pregnant!" Kemper told Jimmy Fallon, who immediately said hi to the baby.

"I can't wait to see the show! Your mom is really talented!" he joked.

Fallon also gave the mom-to-be some Ben and Jerry's ice cream in his signature Tonight Dough flavor.

"I'm not just saying this because it's your show – Tonight Dough is my favorite flavor," Kemper gushed. "I have been having a pint every other night. That is not a joke. I will probably fall asleep while I eat this because it's going to be like a Pavlovian response because I fall asleep eating it every night."

The 35-year-old actress told Fallon that she was pregnant during filming for the second season of Kimmy Schmidt, which premieres on Netflix on April 15.

"It didn't really affect filming until the very end," she admitted. "We had a table read, and my character is supposed to be on a rollercoaster...It was still very early on, but I felt like a pregnant lady on a rollercoaster was not ideal so I had to tell my boss, Tina Fey. She knows every secret. I told her before I told my mom."

Kemper explained that she and Fey devised a plan to cover for her pregnancy, telling everyone that she had a back injury, so she couldn't ride the rollercoaster. However, that plan ended up being a little tricky to pull off.

"I could not act like I had a back injury," she said with a laugh. "I'm an actress, presumably. It was so [hard]. Someone asked, 'What's wrong?' and words escaped me. I'm like, 'I sprained my spine.' You can't sprain your spine! You can't do that! I kept forgetting I had [a back injury] so I kept doing things someone with a back injury can't do. They'd say 'Lunch!' and I'd like leap up and do cartwheels to catering. You're not supposed to do that!"
