's upcoming hosting gig on the May 8 edition of "Saturday Night Live" may be all the news today -- ah, the power of Facebook -- but let's not forget about what the episode will also highlight. Mother's Day!

In addition to the 88-year-old TV star, whose "SNL" popularity skyrocketed after she was seen being tackled in a Snickers commercial that aired during the Super Bowl, six former "SNL" performers who also happen to be moms will appear on the show: According to the New York Times, those mammas are Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon.

(I had the opportunity last year to chat up Amy Poehler at a theater opening downtown. She was gracious and happy to talk about her young son, Archie.)

Can't wait to see Betty and the Baby Mama gang!
