People is reporting that Maya Rudolph’s baby boy was born July 3, thus ending the Bridesmaids star’s 12-year-long pregnancy. At least, it sure seemed like it. Correct us if we’re wrong, but didn’t Maya appear just a tiny bit pregnant in the Bridesmaids movie itself? And then massively with child when the film was released in May? And has just this Independence Day weekend popped the kid out? A little while longer and it would have started to look like a ruse to cover up some sort of basketball-smuggling operation.
Rudolph and director husband Paul Thomas Anderson named the baby Jack, joining their two other normally-named children Pearl and Lucille. “The exciting part is not knowing who’s coming,” Maya told People during her pregnancy, about waiting to find out the sex of her child. “You have to wait nine months for a surprise, but then it’s a good payoff because it really is a surprise.” The even bigger surprise must have been when that kid came out able to talk and with a full set of teeth.
