Tina Fey is grateful that her second pregnancy is, so far, as easy as the first.

"I feel pretty good," the 30 Rock star and Bossypants author, 40, said on Tuesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Fey recently announced that she's five months along with her second child; she and composer hubby Jeff Richmond already have a 5-year-old daughter, Alice.

"I've been lucky. Pretty easy pregnancies both times," Fey added. "But it's funny because now I'm oldie, olderson. I have what they call advanced maternal age. [Doctors] look at me like I'm just going to explode. They treat me very gingerly."

(In Bossypants, Fey writes that she was "stricken with guilt" that little Alice was an only child, and burst into tears at the gynecologist from stress.)

So, will Alice have a little brother or sister? "We decided we are going to wait," to find out the baby's gender, Fey said on Ellen.

"We're going to find out...never," she joked. "Not even after it's born. I'm just going to see what it chooses to wear to prom."
