Baby No. 4 has arrived for actress and comedienne Maya Rudolph and her film director husband, Paul Thomas Anderson. While no official announcement has been made yet, sources close to the couple confirmed the birth to Us Weekly.

If it feels like just yesterday the SNL alumna was having a baby, it's not just you—she's created quite the brood in the last seven years. (She even quipped about being pregnant forever last year on Ellen.) Baby No. 4 will join older sisters Pearl, 7, and Lucille, 3, and big brother Jack, 2. But so far, it's anyone's guess as to whether Rudolph's new arrival will be another girl or a boy.

Hilariously, Rudolph's friend and Grown Ups 2 costar, Salma Hayek, remembers a time when the actress couldn't even fathom having three kids, let alone four. "I remember last summer [Rudolph] said, 'I can't believe I'm having three children. I'm never doing this again,'" Hayek once told an interviewer. Sitting next to Hayek at the time, Rudolph laughed and said, "It's amazing how we forget. It's like that light pen thing they do in Men in Black. Somebody [pointed it in my face] and I was like, 'I don't know what you're talking about.'" (Best analogy ever, if you ask us.)

Adding one more kid to the mix may be a little more doable time-wise now that her TV comedy Up All Night was canceled earlier this year; but in many ways, the actress will probably never be as busy as she was during her SNL years. As she once shared in an interview, "Before I had children, everything about my life was devoted to Saturday Night Live. It's really difficult to be there for anyone else in your life when you're doing the show because of the hours it demands."

So will Baby No. 4 be a boy or a girl? We'll have to take our best guesses and wait and see. But one thing's for sure: We can't wait to hear that name...
