Amanda Peet skips Letterman after welcoming daughter No. 2

Peet New mom Amanda Peet needs our help.

Her current movie, "Please Give," opens on April 30. The comedy, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, stars Catherine Keener, Oliver Platt and "Vicky Christina Barcelona" star Rebecca Hall. Did we mention it opens really soon, and it's a comedy about guilt?

We put that out there because Peet went into labor early, People reports, and had to skip doing her own PR with David Letterman on Tuesday after giving birth Monday to Molly June Benioff, her second daughter with screenwriter husband David Benioff.

Peet told People recently that older sis, Frankie, was very excited about the idea of a sibling -- though now she's probably disappointed that Molly wasn't named "Turtle."

Wait -- Letterman would have a clip from the movie, right, or the trailer? Here you go. Whew.
