NEW YORK – "Saturday Night Live" star Tina Fey (search) has some breaking news of her own: The "Weekend Update" co-anchor and her husband are expecting their first child in September, according to People magazine.
Fey will remain at the show's anchor desk through the end of the season, the magazine reported Thursday.
Fey, 34, has been head writer at the show for five years, and her husband, Jeff Richmond (search), 44, is a composer there. They met before their jobs on "SNL" and dated for seven years before tying the knot in a Greek Orthodox ceremony in 2001, People said.
In October, Fey and fellow cast member Amy Poehler (search) made history by becoming the show's first all-female "Update" team, long a trademark segment.
The comedians also starred together in the film "Mean Girls" with Lindsay Lohan.
Fey is waiting to hear whether NBC will pick up her pilot in the fall. She serves as both star and executive producer in the yet-to-be-named show, in which she portrays a head writer for a sketch comedy/variety show.
"Saturday Night Live," now in its 30th season, airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. (ET) on NBC. The season finale is May 21.
