There’s a new funnyman in Maya Rudolph’s house: The actress and former ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member delivered a boy July 3.

Welcomed with director-husband Paul Thomas Anderson, son Jack joins daughters Pearl, 5, and Lucille, nearly 2.

Rudolph was seen just months ago rocking her baby belly while promoting ‘Bridesmaids,’ the comedy costarring Kristen Wiig that turned out to have a royal following.


While details are scarce on his first few weeks at home, the Ministry has insights from Rudolph on pregnancy and childbirth: ‘Baby, thank you for my ginormous temporary tatas. I promise to work ‘em in bikini tops until the moment you are born,’ Rudolph crooned in May with Tina Fey on ‘SNL.’

She had another request too.

‘Promise me, baby, that if you’re a lady don’t move in with Charlie Sheen. Or whoever is Charlie Sheen at that future time.’

She needn’t worry that her bundle of joy will become Sheen fodder, but she did give clues as to what the glorious moment of birth would be like.

‘Baby, when you’re coming out, I may call you some names I didn’t really mean. Like uterus hog, damn jerk and, the only one I meant, pain in the vagina.’

Consider the full video below to be your welcome-home present, Baby Rudolph-Anderson.
