The whirlwind relationship between the comedian, 39, and the Newsroom alum, 41, has garnered attention since its swift start in the spring, just weeks after Mulaney got out of rehab — and before his seemingly abrupt divorce from his wife of seven years, artist Anna Marie Tendler.
Now, the pair’s fast and furious timeline has sped up even more. As Mulaney confirmed on-air to pal Seth Meyers — whose 2013 wedding was where he first met Munn — the new couple is expecting their first child.
“I’m gonna be a dad,” he beamed, after deeming the actress “incredible.”
While having a baby may not have been in their immediate plans —”it happened quite accidentally,” spills a source — the stars are over the moon.
“It’s no secret Olivia’s been wanting to settle down,” says the source, explaining that while Mulaney once insisted he didn’t want kids, “he’s in a different headspace now. He’s in love and can’t imagine his life any other way.”
As the Big Mouth star told Meyers, “Olivia and this baby have helped save me from myself in this early journey of recovery.”
While keeping the news under wraps for months, the duo has been excitedly planning their future. “They’ve talked about marriage, and it’s something they’ll consider. But right now, they’re taking it day by day,” says the source, adding that Mulaney, who’s been based in New York City, is “open to moving to L.A.” if that’s where Munn wants to be.
“He thinks the world of her,” continues the source, “and knows she’ll be a great mom.”
The Predator star recently spilled she wasn’t sure if she or Mulaney wanted to know the sex of their baby before birth. “I haven't decided if I'll find out yet or not," Munn said of the couple's first child together, OK! reported. "It's a good surprise to find out. There's very few surprises in life.”
As Munn prepares to welcome her bun in the oven, the actress praised the moms out there who have been supporting her since her pregnancy news made headlines on Wednesday, September 8. Munn admitted while she heard about the “mom tribe” that comes to back pregnant women, she said “they've really come up in full force.”
