"Well, I'm six months pregnant," said Montgomery, "and I've been hiding it until this very moment. No, I've been filming my show, I've been doing all my stunts and running and leaping, but I haven't told anybody because I didn't want them to treat me differently, but I do. I want people to give me their seats. I want them to open doors." "I think that's right," Letterman said. "I want to be a proud, pregnant action star," Montgomery added. "You deserve everything that comes with motherhood, and God bless you, and this is number?" Letterman asked. "Three," Montgomery replied, referring to her two other children, Jackson, age 6, and Violet, 14 months. "Number three, oh my goodness," Letterman laughed. "…Do you have a team of high school kids who come in and help because this is crazy?" "It's crazy, and I'm doing the show," Montgomery said."We're still filming right now, so it's pretty wild. They're all going to be really surprised when they watch this show tonight. They're going to feel bad for making me hang off that roof like I was about to drop." "Don't do that, for God's sakes," Letterman said. "…Now I'm done. I also – I also don't think I can hide it much longer," Montgomery said.
