Amanda Peet ditched out on The Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday.

Unlike Sen. John McCain, who Letterman famously chided for ditching him on multiple occasions, we doubt he'll give Amanda a hard time for her excuse:

Gabriel Aubry and Nahla

She went into labor early and delivered daughter Molly June Benioff!

The actress, who announced she was pregnant again in December, had been scheduled to appear on the Late Show to promote her upcoming film, Please Give, but instead late Monday she welcomed her second child.

"Mother and daughter are doing great," Peet's rep says.

Amanda Peet no longer looks like this!

Peet and screenwriter husband David Benioff. also have a 3-year-old daughter, Frances, who is especially excited to meet the family's newest addition.

"But there's been a lot of fighting going on in my household over names," she said. "Frankie is very excited. She just wants to call the baby Turtle.”

Kids. They're the best.

Amanda Peet is pregnant again! The star and her screenwriter husband, David Benioff are expecting their second child, her rep confirmed this afternoon.

In 2007, Peet - who recently appeared in the sci-fi flick 2012 - welcomed daughter Frances "Frankie" Pen, whom she named after her mother, Penny.

Peet has said motherhood is not what she expected.

"One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have," she said. "I thought it would be an extended, blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature to life. It's been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead."

Amanda also hopes Frances doesn't grow up too fast.

"I'm trying not to think about what the world will be like by the time she grows up," she said. "I think more about when she's going to start drinking and wearing a G-string and how can I stop those things from happening."

Congratulations to the second-time parents-to-be!

Remember Amanda Peet? We didn't until this morning!

Did you know she had a daughter? We reported on Frances' birth back in February 2007, though we sort of forgot about it until this morning.

That's when we came across Cookie magazine. We haven't the slightest clue about what Cookie magazine is, or why Amanda Peet is featured in it. But celebrity baby fans can't deny that she and Frances are darn cute...

Aww. There are never enough celebrity babies to go around.

Actress Amanda Peet, who welcomed her first child, daughter Frances Pen (named for her mom, Penny) in February, is feeling the rigors of new parenthood.

But she says it's worth it.

"I'm very busy with my baby - I have to get back to my projectile-vomiting baby," Peet, 35, told People at Wednesday's Oscar de la Renta boutique opening in West Hollywood benefiting the Women's Cancer Research Fund.

"In the beginning, it's very, very hard because you're so sleep-deprived. But she just started smiling three days ago, so I'm on cloud nine right now."

THG NOTE: You know who's been smiling a lot lately? Britney Spears. We think she's on massive amounts of anti-depressants. Moving on.

And Amanda Peet and screenwriter husband David Benioff are already thinking about adding to their family. "I think we want more [kids]," she said. "He wants three, but I'm old, I'm an old lady. Two is enough!"

Asked who has been giving her child-rearing advice, Peet said:

"My mom has been fantastic."

David Benioff also has been doing his part.

"Changing diapers. He's actually doing the night-feeding," Peet said. "He's letting me sleep right now. The hardest part is being so monumentally sleep-deprived."

Benioff and Peet dated for four years before tying the knot in September at Peet's prep school alma mater, Friends Seminary, in New York City.

Peet, like Salma Hayek, Keri Russell, Tobey Maguire's surprisingly average-looking fiance, Jennifer Meyer, and a host of other celebrities, got knocked up before tying the knot. It's the in thing to do.

It's been quite the week for celebrity babies.

Yesterday, it was Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross cranking out two of them! Today, we're happy to report that Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip star Amanda Peet, 35, has given birth to a baby girl.

Sources say Peet went into labor on Tuesday, resulting in the debut of Frances Pen - named after Peet's mom, Penny.

Yeah, it's a little strange, this name. But it's no Thijs or Heaven Rain.

The actress and her screenwriter husband, David Benioff, 36, were married in September 2006, shortly after Peet announced she was preggers.

This is the first child for both. Next up on the celebrity baby watch - Aussie actress Naomi Watts, former Felicity star Keri Russell and TV's lovable, now-married Bachelorette, Trista Sutter.

Congrats to Amanda and all these expectant ladies.

She recently announced she is preggers, and now actress Amanda Peet is an honest woman to boot. See, TomKat? That's how it's supposed to be done.

Peet, 34, who stars in the NBC drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, wed screenwriter David Benioff, 36, on Saturday at Peet's alma mater, Friends Seminary, a Quaker school in N.Y. City.

Guests included Elizabeth Berkley and Mark Ruffalo. Nick Carter? Not there. Come on, that would be absurd.

"[The ceremony] was amazing and as extraordinary as she is," said Berkley, reports People.

The bride walked down the aisle wearing a strapless white dress with a black sash, carrying a bouquet of roses. Following the ceremony, guests made their way to the Chelsea Art Museum for the reception.

The wedding went smoothly despite the fears she revealed on The Late Show with David Letterman.

"I have been having recurring nightmares about, not the ceremony, but the party. I go to the bathroom and I come back to the party and everyone's gone. Except for some, everyone's dispersed. And another one where the band just didn't show up so everyone got bored. And I was begging musicians that I know to just play, 'Play something!'" confessed Peet.

The wedding came two weeks after Peet announced that there was a bun in the oven. The couple dated for four years after they were set up on a blind date through friends. They became engaged in July of 2005. This is the first marriage for both. Yay.

Move over, McDreamy, you aren't the only one making a baby announcement today.

Amanda Peet and her fiancé, screenwritter David Benioff, are expecting their first baby.

"She's almost 12 weeks along. She's thrilled," says a source, who adds the two will tie the knot this month in New York City. The couple has been engaged since July 2005.

It's an exciting time for Peet, who's also starring in the latest Aaron Sorkin drama, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. It premieres this Monday and also marks the return of Matthew Perry to network TV.

We're not sure if the pregnancy will be written into the script or not, but we are sure about this: Brooke Hogan really can't sing. And digression is fun.

As for the proud papa, Benioff's screenwriting credits include 25th Hour (with Edward Norton), Troy (with Brad Pitt), and a forthcoming adaptation of the bestselling novel, The Kite Runner.
