People reports that Fey gave birth on Wednesday to her second daughter, who was given a very strong name: Penelope Athena.
Fey, 41, and Richmond, 51, already have a five-year-old daughter named Alice.
The “30 Rock” star and “Bossypants” author publicly announced her pregnancy back in April, during a taping of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” She subsequently played coy on various talk shows about whether she planned to find out the baby’s gender. “It’s going to be a werewolf,” she joked with Craig Ferguson.
Nope, not a werewolf. Just a girl with a first name based on the wife of Odysseus and a middle name borrowed from the Greek goddess of war who sprang from the head of Zeus. Sounds like a girl poised to grow into a strong woman.
