How Many Kids Does Ellie Kemper Have?

Ellie Kemper Is Officially Expecting Baby Number 2! Here's What We Know About Her Son, James

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 29: Ellie Kemper attends Universal Television's FYC

In case you missed it, Ellie Kemper has a second baby on the way! The actress — who you probably know from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and The Office — is officially set to welcome a second child with her comedian husband, Michael Koman. Although we're eager to meet Ellie and Michael's second little one, they already have an adorable son! Here's what we know about him.

James Miller Koman

Ellie Kemper's first baby was born in August of 2016. And although she's especially private as far as her family goes on social media, she did share a first photo of James on Today back in 2017, calling him "the cutest baby on the planet."

According to Ellie, James has a fondness for the A Star is Born soundtrack, which she plays regularly at home. "Bradley Cooper's voice is very deep and gravelly throughout the movie, and there's one dialogue bit on the soundtrack . . . where Lady Gaga says, 'You know I don't feel this way about everybody,' and Bradley Cooper says, 'Good!' James thinks that is so funny," Ellie shared in a January 2019 interview with Us Weekly, adding, "He bursts out laughing every time it happens and now he says it."

And apparently, the actress is pretty proud of her son's imitation, going as far to call herself an "obnoxious" mom. "When we're at a party or someone comes over, I'll say, 'James, you know I don't feel this way about everybody,' and he says, 'Good!' And I'm, like, a stage mom about it," she said. "I'm like, 'Look at our little party trick!'"
