Ellie Kemper and her husband Michael Koman have welcomed their baby into the world.

The pair, who married in July 2012, announced in April that they were expecting their first child together on The Tonight Show earlier this year.

Ellie appeared on the American show and shared her news by casually saying: "Yeah, I have big news. I'm pregnant."

In case you're unaware of the Neflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt it's based on a girl (played by Ellie) who was locked in a bunker for 15 years and is now living in New York.

And congratulations have been flooding in for star, with her co-star Tituss Burgess writing on Twitter: "My Ellie had her baby. A son. But why am I emotional.

"He's not mine. Also someone is gonna call her mom. I cannot wrap my head around it.

"Like she went into labour and pushed someone out. I can't process it.

"In fact, when she told me she was preggers – correction I told her cause her nose was swollen… she denied it but I'm from the south...

"If we dream about fish we know someone in the fam is pregs – anyway when we spoke about it I laughed…

"Because on the first day of filming I looked her square in the eyes and I said 'b**ch… don't get pregnant cause I don't have time for it.'

"She laughed and said trust I won't… I feel such betrayal and happiness [cheeky wink emoji]."

We are really happy for the pair and can't wait to find out what they have called their bundle of joy.
