COMEDIAN John Mulaney has confirmed he's expecting his first child with girlfriend Olivia Munn less than a year after he split from his wife Anna Marie Tendler.
The 39-year-old funnyman confirmed the joyous news and his relationship with Munn, 41, during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night.
The Cinderella star praised the actress, who he first met at Myer’s wedding in 2013, for holding his "hand through hell" as he got clean having relapsed for the second time after hosting SNL on Halloween.
During the interview, Seth said to John: "You’ve had a year".
To which he replied: "I packed a lot into this… Is it September now? I went to rehab in September, I got out in October, I moved out of my home from my ex-wife…
"Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia."
He continued: "I got into this relationship that’s been really beautiful with someone incredible who has dealt with the non-coked up Bambi version of me, and that’s been very incredible, and she’s kind of held by hand through that hell.
"And we're having a baby together. I was nervous when I was about to say the news!"
After Seth congratulated the comedian, John said that Olivia and their impending arrival "helped save him from himself" as he continues his recovery.
He added: "I’m going to be a dad. We’re really, really happy.
"Olivia and this baby have helped save me from myself in this early journey out of recovery."
Fans of Olivia had been recently speculating that the actress is pregnant after she was spotted out in Los Angeles last week wearing baggy clothes.
X Men star Olivia was seen strolling through a car lot in a loose-fitting black hoodie, which wrapped around her tummy and tan trousers in photos obtained by Page Six.
She dressed for comfort in flat red sandals, as she tapped away on her phone.
After spotting the snaps, fans were quick to take to Twitter to speculate.
One wrote: "Streets are saying Olivia Munn who’s dating John Mulaney is pregnant omfg I will die I feel so bad for his ex."
One then commented: "Not me waking up to Olivia Munn being pregnant. That’s some hot gos!"
In July, the stand-up comedian filed for divorce from wife Annamarie Tendler, with the couple splitting in May after six years of marriage.
After the split was made public, John and Olivia's relationship was confirmed to People.
A source told the outlet: "This is very new, they're taking it slowly. They met at church in Los Angeles."
Rumors about the couple started back when John entered rehab, as Olivia tweeted her support for the writer.
She wrote: "Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this."
Following a 60-day stint in rehab for an apparent cocaine and alcohol addiction relapse, the Saturday Night Live writer started a new relationship with Olivia, 41.
According to online court records viewed by Fox News, John, 38, filed the divorce paperwork on Friday, July 23 in a New York court.
A spokesman for the former Saturday Night Live writer confirmed the split, adding: “John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work.”
Annamarie commented on the news: “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage."
"I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery."
The couple reportedly met in the late 2000s during a group trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
They were married in July 2014 in Boiceville, New York by friend and fellow comedian Dan Levy.
