Ellie Kemper says she can't believe she's about to have a baby.

ET caught up with the star at the premiere of her new movie, The Secret Life of Pets, at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Saturday, where she gushed about her impending arrival -- and confessed just how much she still has to learn before the little one gets here.

The 36-year-old actress revealed that her baby is due in August, but still hasn't wrapped her head around the idea that she'll soon be a mom. "How do you anticipate what's going to happen?" she asked ET's Jen Peros on the red carpet. "We're just going to take it one day at a time. I don't know what I'm doing. So, [I am] very confident in my ability," she joked.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star looked absolutely adorable at the premiere in a black floral dress and matching black flats.

"This is a great dress for pregnancy purposes, I have to say. It's very forgiving," she told ET, before adding that in this stage of her pregnancy, she's having a harder time getting in sleep.

Kemper admittedly still has a lot to learn, but she's got a bit of time on her side to prepare... or entertain other hobbies at home.

"Ice cream, making lists. I love a list," the star said, when asked how she'll be spending her downtime. "I'm not good at checking the items off the list, but I'm good at putting the items on the list. I guess reading -- reading the newspaper. I've been known to. And errands -- I love errands. They're so satisfying because they end."

And while we all can't wait for season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Kemper revealed she'll have a little time off after her baby is born before going back to work in the fall. "There will be some downtime for me to raise this baby. To swaddle it," she said. "That's what they tell me...I'm like YouTubing how to change a diaper."

The Secret Life of Pets hits theaters on July 8.
