Maya Rudolph Expecting More Than Just Another Baby

Maya Rudolph Has More Than Just a Baby in the Works

Actress and comedienne Maya Rudolph is celebrated for her comedic timing on-screen, but it is her dead-on timing offscreen that is generating buzz these days. The former Saturday Night Live cast member — whose impersonations of Condoleezza Rice and Donatella Versace were reasons enough to stay up past most mamas' bedtimes — recently announced that she is expecting baby number two just as she begins promoting her Summer film, Away We Go, in which she plays a mama-to-be.

Already mother to 3-year-old Pearl with longtime boyfriend Paul Thomas Anderson, Rudolph is no stranger to raising children in the public eye. The daughter of soul songstress Minnie Riperton and songwriter Richard Rudolph, Maya grew up in Los Angeles, befriending other celeb spawn like Gwyneth Paltrow during childhood.

Since leaving SNL in 2007, Rudolph has graced the screen in such Hollywood hits as A Prairie Home Companion and Shrek the Third, as well as co-starring in Kath & Kim. In Away We Go, Rudolph stars opposite John Krasinski as a couple traveling around the country in search of the perfect place to plant their roots and raise their impending babe.
