Fey was doing a taping for the “Oprah Winfrey Show” when she let it slip that she was already five months pregnant. Fey already has a five-year-old daughter named Alice with husband Jeff Richmond.
This may put some chops behind Alec Baldwin’s comments earlier this week that 2012 would be the last season for “30 Rock”. Baldwin hinted that Tina wanted to start a family and that he was ready to leave the show.

"I never really believed it before, but when you have a child, there really aren't enough hours in the day to do anything... Basically, any free time that isn't spent looking after our daughter or working goes on sleeping."
But Fey is not slowing down.
Her new book “Bossypants” has just been released to good reviews.
From her humble roots growing up in Pennsylvania to her days doing amateur Improv in Chicago with Second City to her early sketches on Saturday Night Live, “Bossypants” gives us a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of a modern day comedian and celebrity.
Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers ("men urinate in cups"), her cruise ship honeymoon ("it’s very Poseidon Adventure"), and advice about breastfeeding ("I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try").
She details the chaos of being a celebrity when she talks about dividing her time between rehearsing her Sarah Palin impression, trying to get Oprah to appear on “30 Rock”, and planning her daughter’s Peter Pan-themed birthday party.
The book really gets to the heart of why Tina Fey remains one of the most loved and funniest comedians.
