Rachel Bloom found the perfect opportunity to announce that she's expecting her first child with husband Dan Gregor.

On Saturday, the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star won the prize for best original music and lyrics at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys. When she headed backstage she let the cat out of the bag!

"I'm three months pregnant and I get to tell my child she was with me when this happened, which is pretty f**king cool," she announced in the backstage press room.

"This is my first Emmy and I'm so happy! It's really cool," she added. "I'm so happy to be winning with my brothers, it feels better than if I were winning alone."

Later, the 32-year-old actress shared a boomerang of herself proudly displaying her Emmy with fellow winners Adam Schlesinger and Jack Dolgen, for their song "Antidepressants Are So Not a Big Deal."

She wrote in the caption: "WE WON AN EMMY!!!!!!! also btw I'm pregnant."

After four seasons, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's series finale aired on April 5. Prior to that, Bloom spoke with ET about the message she hopes the show conveys to viewers.

"Not to view romantic love as something ethereal and out of one's control," she stated. "I think that's the most interesting thing of what we're saying -- there are stories where no matter how cynical the story is, there's always like, 'But then there's love!' And it's like, no, that's a lie, that's bullsh*t. People get into trouble with putting romantic love on a pedestal above everything else." 

"It's rooted in our lizard brain to want to reproduce," she continued. "It's not this heavenly, ethereal thing, even though it feels good and we are social animals and having a partner is great. But the way that it's, 'Well, if you're in love, nothing else matters,' that's really dangerous."

The show itself drives home this poignant idea in the final moments of the finale via Bloom's character, Rebecca Bunch. "But whoever it's with, it won't be ending up with someone because romantic love is not an ending, not for me or for anyone else here. It's just a part of your story. A part of who you are," she said.
