Females are strong as hell, indeed.

Ellie Kemper and husband Michael Koman are expecting their first child, PEOPLE has learned.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star, 35, and Koman (a writer who previously worked for Conan O’Brien) dated for a few years before tying the knot in July 2012.

In 2011, Kemper, who previously had roles on The Office and in Bridesmaids, told O’Brien, “Michael’s a delight, as you know, so of course [my parents] like him a lot.”

The actress will appear on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, followed by Today Thursday morning. Season two of Kemper’s Netflix hit premieres Friday.
