Looks like there may be another little mathlete in the family. Following last year’s hit Mean Girls, Tina Fey’s next big project is motherhood. The Saturday Night Live head writer and faux-news anchor is pregnant, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. The baby, due in September, will be the first child for Fey, 34, and her husband of four years, SNL composer Jeff Richmond.

It’s not clear how the pregnancy will affect her duties at SNL, where Fey has been the ”Weekend Update” faux-news anchor and the show’s head writer for several years. Fey pal Ana Gasteyer is the only other SNL performer in 30 years who’s been pregnant during the production season, and she left the show shortly after her baby was born. Besides, Fey’s also working on a sitcom pilot for NBC, so it’s not clear how much time she’ll have to write SNL sketches or trade banter with ”Weekend Update”’s Amy Poehler.
