Pregnant Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess continue shooting interactive Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt special

After ‘wrapping’ the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt special on July 16, Ellie Kemper reunited with castmate Tituss Burgess in Manhattan on Monday to film reshoots and pick-ups.

The expecting 39-year-old – who plays the titular character – could not conceal her burgeoning baby bump protruding in the short-sleeved navy-blue top and red pants.

The Missouri-born redhead was acting with the Georgia-born 40-year-old, whose character Titus Andromedon rocked a Versace-style jacket selected by costume designer Tina Nigro.

At one point, Ellie’s naive eternal optimist rested on a log while shooting a scene in the forest of a nearby park.

Kemper joined six actresses dressed like Kimmy and the three other Indiana Mole kidnapped by Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm) for 15 years in an underground bunker.

Harry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe leads the list of guest stars in Claire Scanlon’s interactive special, which likely streams next year on Netflix.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – created by Tina Fey – amassed 18 Emmy Award nominations and three SAG Award nods over its four seasons spanning 2015-2019.

Earlier this month, the two-time Emmy nominee revealed that her two-year-old son James with husband Michael Koman wants to name his baby brother or sister ‘Marshall.’

‘We’re not. It’s not gonna be Marshall. Again, sorry if your name is Marshall,’ the Princeton grad said on the July 10 episode of The View.
