This just in: "Saturday Night Live" comedian-writer Tina Fey is pregnant. The baby is due in September, People magazine reported Wednesday. It will be the first child for the Weekend Update co-anchor and her husband, "SNL" composer Jeff Richmond.

Fey will remain at the NBC show's fake news desk with co-anchor Amy Poehler through the end of the season. She has been head writer at the show for five years.

Fey, 34, and Richmond, 44, met before their "SNL" jobs and dated for seven years before tying the knot in a Greek Orthodox ceremony in 2001, the magazine said.

People said Fey is waiting to hear whether NBC will pick up her pilot in the fall. She would be both the star and executive producer of the yet-to-be-titled show about a head writer for a sketch comedy/variety show.

Fey wrote and co-starred in last year's "Mean Girls," which also starred Poehler and Lindsay Lohan.

"Saturday Night Live," now in its 30th season, airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. (ET) on NBC. The season finale is May 21.
