Tina Fey has proven even mean girls can get pregnant.

The Saturday Night Live head writer/"Weekend Update" anchor and Mean Girls mastermind is set to give birth to a baby this September, her publicist confirmed Wednesday.

The baby will be her first with her husband/coworker, SNL composer Jeff Richmond. The two dated for seven years before finally getting hitched in 2001.

The 34-year-old funnywoman, who signed a $4 million deal in 2003 to stay on the Saturday night staple, will remain on the show through its May 21 season finale.

(There is a precedent: Former SNL player Ana Gasteyer told Fit Pregnancy magazine that she actually hid her pregnancy from coworkers in 2002.)

As for Fey, ever after her 80-hour workweeks on SNL are over next month, she'll keep plenty busy. She's awaiting to hear whether NBC will pick up a pilot she's executive-producing and starring in.

Although the show wouldn't be slated for a fall debut, Fey would have to start preproduction on the untitled sitcom.

Fey is also working on the script for Paramount's Curly Oxide and Vic Thrill, a based-on-a-true-story comedy about a young Hasidic Jew and an aging rock-'n'-roller who meet and form a band.
