NEW YORK (Reuters) - “30 Rock” creator and star Tina Fey is pregnant with her second child, her publicist said on Thursday.

Fey announced her pregnancy this week while taping an upcoming appearance on the “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” scheduled to air next week.

The 40-year-old comedian and her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, are also parents of a 5-year-old daughter.

Fey released a memoir this week called “Bossypants,” that includes personal stories of her marriage and having her first child.

Named after people’s curiosity about her role as executive producer of “30 Rock,” the memoir also details her now famous political impressions of Sarah Palin and other tales from theater and television.
