The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star announced her pregnancy in February, shortly after Beyoncé revealed that she was pregnant with twins. “Beyonce schmonce,” Peretti joked in her Instagram caption at the time.
“It’s going to be a funny kid,” Keegan-Michael Key told E! News of the couple’s son. “That’s going to be a funny, funny kid.” With these two legends as his mom and dad, we’d have to agree.
And while the couple didn’t share a ton about their pregnancy this year, Peretti did go on a Twitter rant in May about what not to say to pregnant women, E! News noted. The comedian criticized people who comment on pregnant women’s appearances. (Even seemingly innocuous questions, like asking about someone’s due date, can be off-putting when coming from a stranger.)
So, yes, let’s congratulate Peretti and Peele – but unless you’re a member of the couple’s inner circle, there’s no need to ask any nosy questions about the baby.
