Saturday Night Live star Tina Fey is getting back to work on Saturday night following a maternity leave for the birth of her daughter, the Associated Press reports.

"I had to get back to work," Fey, 35, said. "NBC has me under contract; the baby and I have only a verbal agreement."

Fey and husband Jeff Richmond, who is a composer for the show, became first-time parents to baby Alice on Sept. 10. Horatio Sanz covered the "Update" in her absence, co-anchoring with Fey's news partner Amy Poehler.

Fey's pregnancy was announced in April, while she was still regularly appearing at the SNL anchor desk. She continued on the show through the season finale on May 21.

Fey and Richmond met prior to their jobs on the NBC show. They dated for seven years before tying the knot in a Greek Orthodox ceremony in 2001.
