Jenna Fischer, who announced in May that she’s expecting her first child with husband Lee Kirk, is taking her pregnancy to The Office this fall.

Her character, Pam Beesly, is married to Jim Halpert (played by John Krasinski) and already has one baby on the long-running NBC comedy.

Looks like Cece will soon have a sibling.

“Pam and Jim snuck away last season on Valentine’s Day, and they had sex,” the star reveals. “The story is that they conceived this baby at that time and were keeping it a secret until we come back from the summer.”

The Office plot twist, however, was not written with Jenna’s baby in mind – it in the works before Fischer found out she was expecting as well.

Guess there’s no need to hide the bump now.

“When we started shooting that episode, I thought to myself, ‘If everything goes well, this is going to be a very, very convenient coincidence,’” she says. “I think I found out I was pregnant when we were shooting that episode.”

When she’s not clocking in at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, the mom-to-be is enjoying her pregnancy, which has gone quite smoothly.

“I’ve been really lucky. I’ve had a really easy pregnancy,” she says.
