Trivia
Debbie asks Pete (in the hospital waiting room near the end) if Ben's friend Martin is the rabbi there to do the circumcision when the baby comes. Pete replies he thinks Martin is Matisyahu. Matisyahu is a Hassidic Jew rapper with a beard (from Queens, NY) who has a song in this movie: "King Without a Crown."

Director Judd Apatow also used the song "Santeria" by Sublime in his short-lived but critically-acclaimed 2001 series "Undeclared" (Knocked Up stars Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel were also on the show).
