Erinn Hayes Erinn Hayes

Good news for Worst Week star Erinn Hayes: She's pregnant with her second child.

Hayes, who's mom to 1-year-old Maggie with husband, construction superintendent Jack Hayes, deliberately planned the pregnancy to coincide with that of her small-screen character's.

"I'm nothing if not an opportunist," she jokes to People.

With a May due date, the actress notes that the "timing couldn't be more perfect," as she would be on summer hiatus should the CBS slapstick sitcom receive a second-season pickup.

Not so perfect though? The idea of her newborn playing her character Melanie's newborn.

"Absolutely not," she says. "It would be one thing if it were twins, so that when one is crying you can switch it out."

Worst Week returns with a new episode Monday at 9:30 pm/ET.
