Peele broke the couple’s nuptials news that April on an episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, appearing with his Key & Peele costar Keegan-Michael Key.

“I am married to actress Chelsea Peretti,” Peele said during a segment in which he and Key shared trivia about each other to help people tell them apart.

“I am not married to actress Chelsea Peretti, we are just dating,” Key joked, earning quite the look from his comedy partner.

Speaking to PEOPLE in March, Peele admitted that “this child will be comedy gold” and that their baby announcement was pretty much unavoidable.

“You want to get into the zone where you feel like, ‘Okay, now this is happening,’ and really it got to the point where hiding it really wasn’t an option,” he explained of Peretti’s bump, adding that the couple have “gotten such a warm reaction” to their news.

“We’re so excited, and it’s surreal and cool,” the star added. “My wife is just a very beautiful and spectacular pregnant person.”

Of his hush-hush nuptials, Peele shared that, in his mind, there were no downsides. “Oh my God, what aren’t the pros of eloping?” he said. “I’m not a very crowd-oriented person. I feel like I’m great one-on-one, I’m okay with two people, with three I’m a little bit worse.”
