You’ll Totally Relate to Ellie Kemper’s Latest Pregnancy Confession
Ellie Kemper (AKA the unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which, BTdubs, will live on for season three) announced her pregnancy in what was quite possibly the cutest way ever, and now the first-time mommy-to-be is making another quirkily adorable confession.
In a new interview with ET for the premier of her new movie, The Secret Life of Pets (co-starring Chris Evans’ new girlfriend Jenny Slate), Ellie admits that, though she’s due in just a few months come August, she’s not entirely prepared (though certainly not for lack of trying).
“How can you anticipate what’s going to happen?” she muses. “I don’t know what I’m doing!”
Your honesty is utterly refreshing, Ellie! Though that’s not to say she’s not doing her research! “I’m YouTubing how to change a diaper,” she shared. (We feel you, girl.)
We’re sure she’ll have plenty of time to figure it out — though her show has been renewed for a third season, Ellie also confirmed that she will be taking some time off to try her hand at parenting. “There will be some downtime for me to raise this baby. To swaddle it,” she said before confirming with interviewer Jennifer Peros that it was, in fact, a real word.
Annnnddd that’s why you’re our favorite, Ellie. Oh, and don’t worry: We’ve got a sneaking suspicion you’re going to do just fine. (wink, wink)
