About (Late) Last Night: Tina Fey shows off the 'larva monster' growing inside her

April 20, 2011 |  6:59 am


Decked out in an impressive array of little black maternity dresses, Tina Fey has been on a grand tour of the nation's talk-show couches for the last two weeks to promote her new memoir, "Bossypants," and the upcoming 100th episode of "30 Rock."  But, truthfully, all anyone wants to talk about is the baby she has on the way.

On Tuesday night, Fey sat down with her former 30 Rock (as in the building, not the show) neighbor, Conan O'Brien. He got right down to business.

"You've been all over the news lately. You're expecting your second child," O'Brien said. "You know it's weird, I've been through this twice, I have two kids. Going to the doctor, they have all this amazing equipment where they can almost show you too much of your child at an early stage."

"It's been five years since I had my first, and now they have all this new technology. They have 3-D ultrasound which is supposed to be like 'Yeah, I want to see it.' There's a reason this thing isn't see-through," Fey said, pointing to her belly. "'Cause that thing's not cooked yet. It's horrifying. You see the 3-D ultrasound and it's like, 'Oh, it's a larva monster.' It's upsetting. Did you have one?"

O'Brien, who got a 3-D ultrasound of his second child, recalled that it "looked like special effects from a monster movie."

"It's a chance to bond with the little horrifying Gollum insde you," Fey said.

The conversation was really just a prolonged way of setting up the punchline: An ultrasound image of Fey's gestating offspring. Let's just say, her "horror" seems pretty justified.
