Nick Kroll and Wife Lily Kwong Have Welcomed Their First Baby!
Nick Kroll and his wife, Lily Kwong, are parents now!
Lily shared the news on her Instagram on Monday, February 8, as she posted a blurry picture of their newborn with a clear focus on the baby’s feet.
The caption said, “Welcome to the world little one - our beautiful baby boy joined us earthside on 1/21/21. Our hearts are full.”
Only a month before the baby’s arrival, Nick, 42, posted a picture of his wife as she cradled her baby bump, with the caption, “Beautiful curves.” The announcement of the pregnancy came in October 2020 as Lily posted a picture of herself smiling down on her baby bump. She captioned it, “Created a little Dumpling with my forever person @nickkroll.”
The landscape artist went on to show the progress of her baby bump the next month, writing, “‘To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow’ - A. Hepburn. #fbf to when baby dumpling was just 19 weeks.”
The couple has welcomed their son just two months after getting married. As Lily revealed on Instagram, they held a private ceremony for their wedding “with only cliffs, ocean, redwoods & sunset as witnesses.”
In the post, Lily thanked all of the people who were involved in preparing for the wedding. Those people included her “sister and dear friend” Rushka Bergman (Instagram: @rushkabergman) who created her wedding dress in one week with designer Peter Hidalgo, photographer Liza Voloshin (Instagram: @globaliza), green beauty enthusiast Sophie Haig (Instagram: @sophiehaig) who taught Lily to do her own make-up amid the pandemic, and Monique Pean (Instagram: @moniquepean) who “spent weeks designing the most timeless, unique rings” for Lily and Nick.
Lily and Nick started dating in 2018. 'The Big Mouth' star previously dated Amy Poehler during the time she was going through her divorce from Will Arnett in 2013.
According to a source, Amy “was looking for a guy like him. She wanted a comedian who ‘gets’ her… They have a lot of fun together obviously and are both real big fans of each other.”
The actress also gushed about Nick in her 2014 memoir, ‘Yes Please.’ “I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me. He puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring stories,” Amy wrote. “On one of our first nights together, I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out two earplugs he had worn to bed so he could hear what I was saying.”
