The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star is currently expecting her second child with Michael Koman, who she married in 2012. The couple are also parents to 3-year old son James. Recently, the actress shared an image of her growing bump online and jokingly admitted she feels like she’s been pregnant for two years.
“102 weeks pregnant!” she captioned the mirror selfie, which featured her wearing a fitted black dress. Despite feeling done with pregnancy, Ellie was glowing in the photo. Several of her celebrity friends had sweet words for her in the comments. “Beauty and the bump!” her Unbreakable co-star Lauren Adams wrote. “Lady!!! Look at you! Beauty!” actress Jenna Fischer added, who previously starred with Ellie on The Office.
During an appearance on Live with Ryan and Kelly this past June, Ellie admitted her second pregnancy has been a lot different than her first.
“The first trimester was awful,” she revealed. “I have a 2-year-old now and when I was pregnant with him, I was fine. First trimester [this time], just terrible! Just tired and nauseous and all of it.” She also added she and her husband are waiting to find out the baby’s gender. But regardless if it’ll be a boy or girl, it sounds like big brother James already has a name picked out.
“He does not watch the show PAW Patrol, but he has friends who watch it and so I think Marshall is a character on PAW Patrol,” Ellie said of her son’s choice. “He’s not as creative as I thought. He just heard someone say Marshall.”

7 years ago today I made the biggest mistake of my life: getting married in New York City on the hottest day of the year. But I also made the best decision of my life bc the person I married was @michael.koman. Happy Anniversary, Bug! ❤️ (photo by @daverobbinsphotography)
Last year, Ellie also opened up about her struggle dealing with ‘mom guilt,’ or should we say, ‘parent guilt.’ “I’m new to this, but I would imagine all parents feel guilty most of the time,” she said. Her son was only 18-months old at the time. “I don’t know that that’s good, but it’s hard, as everyone knows.”
The actress continued, “So accepting that you’re not gonna be everywhere at once is like an ongoing challenge for me. Guilt is hard to shake. I think anyone can relate to that.” Ellie added, “Occasionally I will wonder, ‘How is that mom doing everything and apparently doing it really well?’ I think some things are maybe misrepresented on social media. Everyone struggles, I would imagine. I am a dinosaur and I’m not on social media.”
