tina fey, tina fey pregnantThere is tons of baby news this week in Hollywood!

First up, Tina Fey is preggers again.  She announced her exciting news during the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The funny mummy and 30 Rock star is five months along. She and hubby, composer Jeff Richmond, also have 5½-year-old daughter Alice.

Fey is promoting her new book, Bossypants, and will be appearing in an upcoming Saturday Night Live reunion.

Oprah’s interview with Fey is scheduled to air on April 12th.

Mariska Hargitay is a mom again!  She and husband Peter Hermann adopted a baby, Amaya Josephine, about a week ago.  Their daughter joins their 4-year-old son August.

“I’m deliriously happy,” Mariska tells People magazine of the adoption. “From the minute she was born, she was just surprisingly alert and so full of love.”

Mariska and Peter faced the decision of adopting a child born in the United States or opting for an International adoption. Amaya was born in the USA.

“We were considering both international and domestic adoption and we’re thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered,” she adds.

“We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We’re just so happy she’s here.”

The Black Swan star admitted to Access Hollywood that she’s not shopping for her baby quite yet.

“I think it’s a Jewish thing to be kind of superstitious,” she told.

“You don’t do any of the baby stuff before the baby arrives.”

This superstition is familiar to me because in Greek culture, some are afraid to share news of a pregnancy or prepare for baby’s arrival for fear of something going wrong.

How is her pregnancy so far?  “My back is not feeling great right now. But everything’s really great otherwise.”
