The extremely bashert couple “Brooklyn 99” star Chelsea Peretti and “Get Out” creator Jordan Peele have welcomed their first child. The bravely-named Beaumont Gino Peele was born July 1st, but the couple, who eloped last year with only a dog for a witness, announced the birth today. With a comedy pedigree that includes half of the comedy-duo “Key and Peele” and a Jewish mother who has been involved with more or less every funny TV show in the last decade, Beaumont Gino will no doubt be a gift to this world. In fact, the Peele-Peretti baby started getting laughs while he was still in utero.

Behold: Chelsea Peretti used Twitter to elevate pregnancy problems into art. Mothers really are magic.

Luckily, her fans were supportive:

But people were still not afraid to ask questions: Just how long did she plan to stay pregnant for?

And finally, was she actually pregnant?

Welcome, baby Beau, mazal tov, Chelsea and Jordan, and thank god for mothers who are also comedians.
