Fischer and her husband, Lee Kirk, welcomed a baby boy named Weston Lee into the world on Sept. 24. Both he and his mom are “doing great,” her rep tells People.
It’s the first child for the couple, who have been married for 15 months.
Fischer said over the summer that she got pregnant in real life around the same time that she filmed the episode in which Pam and Jim (John Krasinski) conceive their second child.
“Pam and Jim snuck away last season on Valentine’s Day, and they had sex,” she said at the time. “The story is that they conceived this baby at that time and were keeping it a secret until we come back from the summer.”
“Office” showrunner Paul Lieberstein told Zap2it recently that Pam’s maternity leave on the show would coincide with Fischer’s real-life leave. The show’s production is a few episodes ahead of what has aired thus far, so expect Pam to be absent from Dunder Mifflin later in the fall.
