If you’ve ever been in the home stretch of pregnancy, you know that those last few weeks can feel absolutely endless. Counting down to your due date is all fun and games…until you reach the point where you’re just so over your pregnancy. And if a recent post from Ellie Kemper is any indication, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star has officially reached that point.
Ellie shared a selfie to make a hilarious—and super relatable—point about what it really feels like to be at the end of a pregnancy. The photo, which she shared on Instagram, features the actress in a form-fitting black dress (she looks amazing) at what looks to be a fancy event. She’s rocking the baby bump, and to the outside world she looks like the cutest preggo. But her caption indicates that she’s so ready to deliver that baby. Ellie writes “102 weeks pregnant!” alongside her photo.

Not surprisingly, the comments section of this post are full of compliments for the radiant expectant mama. However, some people don’t quite grasp the sentiment. One Instagram user writes “Isn’t that impossible why 23 months prego?! It’s only supposed to be 9 months prego!”
Several other commenters set the record straight though. “Guys, she is pregnant. She’s just joking about the 102 weeks cause that’s what it feels like. Stop being quick to judge and think it’s ‘photoshop’ or ‘she’s pretending.’ It’s just a joke because that’s how long she feels like it’s been,” one writes.
Another commenter jokes “Keep holding out. If you wait for 500 weeks…They’ll come out potty trained.”
This is Ellie’s second child — she’s also a mama to son James—and she announced the pregnancy during a May appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. No word on the actress’ due date, but we imagine she’s very, very excited to officially become a mama of two…because as great as she looks, we know that feeling “102 weeks pregnant” is not fun.
You’ve got this, Ellie! That baby is almost here.
