Females are strong as hell… except when it comes to lying!
We were so excited to learn on Wednesday that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper is pregnant with her first child!
The Office alum made the official announcement when she stopped by Wednesday’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she celebrated the best way possible — by eating a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!

The 35-year-old learned she was expecting during filming for the second season of her Netflix comedy, and keeping it a secret wasn’t an issue until the shooting the season finale — which was supposed to feature Kimmy riding a roller coaster.
After consulting her boss Tina Fey, they decided to say that Kemper had a back injury instead — but the actress is admittedly a “bad liar” and was horrible at keeping up the ruse!
Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) to hear what happened and catch Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt April 15 on Netflix!
