Tina Fey recently announced she and her husband Jeff Richmond are expecting their second child.

Since the news broke, 30 Rock fans have been wondering how this will affect Fey's character on the show, Liz Lemon.

The hit NBC show has already finished filming its current season, according to People.com, and Fey's pregnancy will not affect the storyline or the production for next season.

I wish I had a better joke response, the 40-year-old actress joked to People.com before she revealed she was pregnant. I'd usually just go, 'I don't know, I'm pretty old. Down to the wire! I need a good joke.

Fey and her husband already have a five year old daughter named Alice. Fey is five months along in her pregnancy her rep confirmed.

Fey has been in the news a lot this week, as on Wednesday her 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin announced that the hit NBC show will be ending next season.

Baldwin announced that Fey is definitely leaving the show to pursue other aspects of her career.

Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is going to have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great, he said.
