After an abbreviated seventh season, 30 Rock will now end on January 31st. Despite his eagerness to continue, Baldwin recognizes that the birth of Fey’s second child in 2011 made her life even more hectic. “Tina always had her antenna up,” he says. “But this year was the first time she came in and laid down on the couch on set, and you could tell, she’s a mom. She’s fucking wiped out.”

"I truly almost didn’t pull it together," Fey told Us Weekly at the post-awards Governor’s Ball. “I can’t believe I did!”

Fey flew solo for the big night, with composer hubby Richmond staying behind in NYC. “My husband decided to stay home in New York and watch the girls,” she explained. “But actually he hired a babysitter too. So they have dad - and a babysitter for backup!”

Born Aug. 10, Penelope is “doing great,” Fey added — as is older daughter Alice, 5. “Alice is an amazing big sister.”
