Jane Krakowski gave birth to a son, who is blonde “just like his mother”?


Yay! Jane Krakowski had her baby! Jane and her fiancé Robert Godley welcomed a son “last Wednesday” (I’m assuming that means last week). They named him Bennett, which I really, really like. I like the full name, and I like the abbreviation – Ben. So cute! So he’ll be little Ben Godley. But – the funniest part about this birth announcement is that Jane and Robert make hilarious note of little Ben’s hair color. It cracked me up, because it’s just so… Jenna Maroney.

Jane Krakowski is officially a mama! The 30 Rock actress and her fiancé Robert Godley welcomed a son named Bennett last Wednesday in NYC, her rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. The happy parents tell Us in a statement:

“Jane Krakowski and Robert Godley are thrilled to announce the arrival of their baby boy, Bennett Robert Godley, born Wednesday, April 13, in New York. Bennett, the first child for both Jane and Robert, weighed 7 lbs 12 ounces and is sporting blonde hair just like his mom!”

“Bennett is an amazing, healthy sweet boy and we are both just crazy in love with him,” Krakowski, 42, tells Us.

The Tony winner and clothing designer Godley became engaged in January 2010. Krakowski revealed her pregnancy to Us back in January.

“We waited a little while, I went behind the middle school, got pregnant, and now we’re announcing it to the world,” Krakowski joked at this year’s Golden Globes. 30 Rock’s 100th episode airs Thursday night on NBC.

It’s just like… “SEE I’M A NATURAL BLONDE!” Yes, we see, Jane. Now fix your roots, hon. They’re black. Well, I’m sure that Jane was a natural blonde at some point, probably when she was very small. But she’s been a bottle blonde for a while.

Other than that mild amusement, I’m really happy for Jane and Robert. Congratulations to the happy family!

    Congratulations! I’m very happy for them.

    So sweet!

    Now off to color my roots!

  3. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them! Big fan of hers from 30 Rock, love the “middle school” joke!

  4. CIdee says:

    Can’t we for once just say, “Congrats!” without a dig (ie: “you’re not a natural blonde any more!”)? Even awesome broads like Jane aren’t safe from nasty comments? Let’s save our derision for those who deserve it- like Goopy and Kate-bot Holmes.

  5. GossGirl says:

    I think she meant it as a joke…”He’s sporting blonde hair just like me”

  6. mln76 says:

    Oh I think Jane has a sense of humor about herself so she wouldn’t mind a little razzing. Did you see her on 30 Rock last night? Hilarious.

    Congrats on the baby.

  7. TQB says:

    I agree with GossGirl – Jane is way too silly and self-aware to have said that seriously. And if you read it as a joke, it’s freakin’ hilarious, no?

  8. Mrs S says:

    My husband’s name is Bennett!! I thought it was rather rare, considering it’s mostly a last-name.

  9. jc126 says:

    I think she’s just joking. Congratulations to them!

  10. LMS says:

    Huge fan of 30 Rock, but just never liked this actress. She’s 42, so I suspect she got pregnant with IVF and a donor egg. So, yeah, little Bennett’s genetic mother could very well be blonde.

  11. mommyesq says:

    LOVE!!! I was cracking up at last week’s 30 Rock b/c she was CLEARLY hiding her stomach behind a huge purse that she just unnaturally held in front of her baby bump. So funny.

  12. Kim says:

    So they died the babys hair blond the minute it came out of the womb?! haha!

    I dont think she meant it as a joke at all. More like a cover up for donor egg.

  13. Dee says:

    Kim and LMS, y’all are bitches, my mom had my little brother when she was 38 no invitro or donor egg. Leave the new mom and baby alone and be happy for them if you can.

  14. Peter Hobson says:

    She is one of the truly nice people in show business and I wish her all the happiness with her baby!

  15. runnermama says:

    I had my 3rd child a few months ago at age 42 – no donor eggs or IVF. It is possible!

    I think the blonde comment was a joke too – she’s too funny to have said that seriously.

  16. Ashley says:

    I love 30 Rock but she’ll always be Elaine to me (Ally McBeal). Love the name Bennett.

  17. Pitita says:

    Her son is blonde as Gwen Stefani’s older soon is. That is bleach blonde.

  18. KateNonymous says:

    “She’s 42, so I suspect she got pregnant with IVF and a donor egg.”

    I’m 42 and I’ve been pregnant four times in the last four years, all of them the old-fashioned way. Unfortunately three of them didn’t work, but BabyNonymous is fantastic and healthy. I hope that the same is true for Ben, regardless of how he was conceived (and who really cares? It’s not like somehow IVF makes your baby not a baby afterall).

  19. Jennifer says:

    @LMS It’s not that weird to be having a kid at 42, the normal way, without IVF, a donor egg, or etc. My mom had her last two at 42 and almost 46. If you hang in conservative Christian circles (not that you should) you’ll observe that it’s actually pretty common. More than half the women I grew up around (Duggar/no birth control types) had their last kid(s) in their 40s. They don’t use IVF or anything. My mom was definitely not an anomaly. If you don’t use birth control and are healthy-ish, you actually (from everything I’ve seen) have a half decent chance of eventually having a kid even in your 40s. Now if you WANT one in your 40s, that’s another story. But congrats to Jane, and she looks adorable as a furry creature. :)

    Mrs S Bennett as a first name is becoming extremely popular in Germany

  21. Red Rooster says:

    Why do you have to guess at which Wednesday the kid was born on? It clearly states the date in the announcement.

  22. james says:

    Fvck the trolls and haters. Jane has a sense of humor and she’s adorable. And healthy women in their 40s have been having babies for hundreds of years. Eleanor of aquitaine had her last baby at 46, after 8 kids. Way back in 1200s.

    I’m one of four to a mom who was 45 in 1986. Study biology before you talk sh!t.

    And the writer is a dumb b!tch for not getting Jane’s joke. Haterz gone hate.
