Former Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph and her partner, There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson, are expecting their second child, Rudolph announced Tuesday on The View. "Somebody spilled the beans, but I'd rather break it here," Maya told Barbara Walters. "I'm having another one. I've got another bun in the oven. No. 2. I'm so excited."
Rudolph and Anderson have a three-year-old daughter, Pearl, who was born a few months after they finished filming Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion in 2005. Maya had a small role in the film, and Paul was the 80-year-old Altman's backup director. In an amusing coincidence, Maya plays a woman expecting her first child and looking for a place to call home with her husband, played by The Office's delightful John Krasinski, in her next film, Away We Go, which opens June 5. "I know it's really weird timing," she told Entertainment Tonight. Read: Having A Baby Improved My Sex Life
The Rudolph-Anderson coproduction is only the latest in what seems like a titanic baby boom going on in Hollywood right now. Tobey Maguire and his wife, Jennifer Meyer, welcomed their second child, a son, on Friday, and My Boys' Jim Gaffigan (who is also in Away We Go) and his wife, Jeannie, announced they'd had a daughter, Katie, on Sunday. And then of course there's the fourth kid for Heidi Klum and Seal on the way, the upcoming Sarah Michelle Gellar–Freddie Prinze Jr. baby, and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's twins, which are due to a surrogate this summer. So much for the recession causing a drop in the birth rate.
