Not only is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator and star Rachel Bloom an Emmy winner, but, as she announced tonight, she is also expecting a baby. Bloom won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics alongside co-writers Adam Schlesinger and Jack Dolgen for the song “Antidepressants Are So Not a Big Deal,” beating out nominees from Documentary Now! and Saturday Night Live. This is Bloom’s first win after three nominations in the Original Music category. “I’m three months pregnant and I get to tell my child she was with me when this happened, which is pretty fucking cool,” Bloom told reporters at a press conference following her win. Bloom has been married to comedian and How I Met Your Mother writer Dan Gregor since 2015.
