WATCH: Tina Fey’s Daughter Is Getting Coal for Christmas This Year


Santa doesn’t make exceptions on his naughty list, even if you’re Tina Fey’s kid. The 30 Rock comedienne tells Ellen DeGeneres that her youngest daughter Penelope has a good chance of getting coal this holiday season if she keeps up her bad behavior.

“My older one is sweet and really easy going and my little one is rough,” says Fey. “She is smart. That’s the problem too. When she is mad at you, she will just take you apart.”

That said, the worried mama fears for her own livelihood in the event that she finds coal in her stocking on Christmas morning.

“There are times where I feel she should be on the naughty list, but then if that happens, then there will sort of be hell to pay for Mommy,” says Fey. “I don’t want to be the one there on Christmas morning to be like, ‘Guess what happened? Coal.‘”

Fey looks forward to hosting Saturday Night Live on Dec. 19 with her Sisters co-star Amy Poehler, especially during the wave of debates for the upcoming presidential election.

“People say will you play Sarah PalinHilary Clinton? I don’t know about that. Maybe we will play Ted Cruz’s ears.”
