Maya Rudolph Welcomes Baby No. 4

15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards - Arrivals

Congratulations to Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson who welcomed their fourth child. US Weekly reports the baby’s gender is not known.

Rudolph and Anderson, a director, are already parents to Pearl, 7, Lucille, 3, and Jack, 2. In April the Grownups 2 actress confirmed her pregnancy on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“It looks like sooner, but we’ll see,” Maya joked of her burgeoning belly.

When asked home many children she has, Rudolph joked, “Like 16, 17 — I don’t know! This will be number four. This is like a modern-day version of The Waltons at this point.”

The Saturday Night Live alum once told NPR’s Fresh Air in April 2012 that her priorities changed after becoming a mother in October 2005.

“Before I had children, everything about my life was devoted to Saturday Night Live. It’s really difficult to be there for anyone else in your life when you’re doing the show because of the hours it demands.”


Salma Hayek really, really, really hates snakes (with video)

SALMA-HAYEK-SNAKESalma Hayek, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph sat down with Extra to promote their new movie Grown Ups on Tuesday when a large snake crawled across the set sending Salma Hayek into one of the most insane panics we’ve ever seen a pair of tits go into. Shrieking and shaking she then tried to use Maya Rudolph as a human shield, clawing at her face and possibly puncturing a lung or two with her 5-inch heels when she tried to climb on top of her (at least Maria Bello had the decency to take her shoes off first).

“Somebody do something!” she shrieked as she climbed over the expendable human being next to her. “Noooooo! Ahhhhhh!” “Eat this one first!!” (pushes Maya towards the snake. Ok, that last part never happened).

Salma was then carried away by a member of the crew as the snake slithered off in the other direction. She wasn’t seen again on set for the rest of the day.

Very weird indeed since Salma danced with a huge python for her breaking role in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn back in 1996. Or was that just Quentin Tarantino making a cameo?


Molly Shannon & Kids Land At LAX

Funnylady Molly Shannon was spotted with her two children - Stella, 7, and Nolan, 5 - at the Los Angeles International Airport after a long flight from New York City. The Saturday Night Live alum had just appeared with Betty White in the Big Apple. I loved their muffin sketch!

Molly, 45, who was well known for her hilarious Mary Katherine Gallagher character on SNL, was joined by fellow former cast members Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Ana Gasteyer. Betty, 88 1/2, and the girls brought SNL its biggest ratings this year. You go girls!


Maya Rudolph Welcomes Baby Girl Lucille!

SNL alum Maya Rudolph, 37, who recently played a pregnant woman for Away We Go, has welcomed her second child with director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Baby Lucille was born November 6 in Los Angeles, a rep for Maya tells PEOPLE exclusively. She joins big sister Pearl, 4, at home.

The couple, who announced the pregnancy in May, chose not to find out the sex of either of their children before they were born: “We didn’t find out with [Pearl], which was kind of fun,” Maya told David Letterman.

Because when you're ready to throw in the towel and you've got nothing positive to think about or feel, because you're so heavy and you want to float in a pool of salt water to be buoyant, it was nice to have something to look forward to.

Congratulations to the Rudolph-Anderson family!
