Well, if this doesn't put the final nail in the almost-buried coffin that is Up All Night, then nothing will!
As we've reported, numerous creative shake-ups to the struggling NBC comedy have already resulted in creator Emily Spivey and star Christina Applegate giving their two-week's notice, and now, it appears that Maya Rudolph may be following them right out the door!
But not exactly how or why you would imagine…
Because she's just announced that she and partner Paul Thomas Anderson are expecting their fourth child together!
Well, not announced to the public! Her representative hasn't made a statement!
But according to sources with NBC, the actress has let the studio big-wigs know about the baby-to-be, which probably was an incredibly convenient way to slither her way out of the contract for that mess of a series!
Not that we blame her! She doesn't need all of that added stress when she's got a bun in the oven!
Such happy news!
Congratulations, you guys!
All the best for your soon-to-be-expanded family!
