Drama Character Will Announce Pregnancy

pregnant-belly-pinkEntertainment Weekly – Congratulations are in order! A major female character on a popular and highly rated hour-long drama series will learn that she’s pregnant next month. Come to think of it, hold off on the congratulations. This is far from a happy occasion. You see, the expectant mom will be none too thrilled to find herself with child. For starters, the timing couldn’t be worse — both professionally and personally. And then there’s the baby daddy. He’s been, um, going through some stuff lately. Personal stuff. The kind of stuff only a psychologist and/or a surgeon can fix. A kid is an extra dose of crazy he probably doesn’t need right now either. On the other hand, maybe a new life is exactly the kind of game-changing event these two do need. As the saying goes, good things come in initially small packages. Of course, there’s an added wrinkle I have yet to mention. The bun in her oven? It may have company.

    Meredith Grey

  • GuyIncognito

    Evangeline Lilly?

  • oh no

    calista flockhart on brothers and sisters?

  • Bubulle

    Meredith Grey/Elen Pompeo since she’s pregnant in real life.

  • Trinkvasser

    Yep – Meredith.

    • Jen

      If this blind is about Greys Anatomy, then it’s definitely not Meredith. The fact that she’s preggo in real life makes it way too predictable, and Grey’s is NEVER predictable. The writers are even known to change storylines at the last minute if they’ve been scooped. Yang is a much better guess, unless it’s another show altogether.

  • Trillian

    How about Christina Yang? She slept with Owen Hunt who has PTSD, he consulted Derek, the neurosuegeon, and saw a shrink the last episode.

    Chyler Leigh, who plays Lexie Grey, is pregnant, but they hide her belly behind white robes, note pads, loose scrubs etc. Medical dramas are good that way, there are lots of ways to hide the belly. They will probably do the same thing with Ellen Pompeo’s pregnancy.

    • Trillian

      From Wikipedia episode summaries:
      5-22 (100) “What A Difference A Day Makes [1]” May 7, 2009
      As Meredith, Derek and all of their friends prepare for the big wedding, a group of college students, injured in a car crash as they were heading to their graduation ceremony, is admitted to the ER. Meanwhile, Izzie fears the worst when she begins experiencing familiar symptoms.

      Izzy has been pregnant before, so she would be familiar with the symptoms of early pregnancy

        oh, i like the izzy guess! totally could make sense!

      • Jen

        Izzy is undergoing intense chemo on the show! No baby could survive that. I don’t think they’d be morbid enough to make her character pregnant on top of the cancer.

      • xx

        i would think that the “familiar symptoms” that izzie experiences would have more to do with her life threatening illness & the fact that the cancer had caused her hallucinations before, rather than a random pregnancy.pretty sure izzie is dying, since everyone already knows CH is leaving the show.

    • dreamyvelvet

      Excellent guess on Yang and Hunt..FTW

    • Meli

      If it’s Izzie would it be a ghost baby?

    • queenofgossip

      I could be COMPLETELY wrong, but I seem to recall that Christina Yang got pregnant with Preston Burke’s baby. I recall an abortion storyline in there, but I think she miscarried before she had the baby.

  • OhPlease

    Kyra Sedgwick(sp?) lead on The Closer on TNT. I’ll lay money on it!

  • JornB

    Why not Cuddy on ‘House’?

  • Lilia

    Ellen Pompeo?
    How old is this blind? She’s already announced that she’s pregnant.

  • beans

    why is there a blind item about a show? weird.

  • Allison

    “The bun in the oven may have company” . Does this mean the character might be expecting twins? I’d like to see that.

  • Val

    Totally Cuddy on House. I agree with JornB.

  • Missy Smith

    “Game changing” refers to Tony Parker. Have you guys seen how fat Eva Longoria is looking nowadays??? Its gotta be Eva.

  • Marie

    Eva is my pick, and the company may indict the man’s wife and gf are pregnant.

  • db

    Lynette from desperate housewives is my pick.

  • PrincessM

    Meredith – – ET announced it last week.

    • Jen

      Well, no. ET announced that Ellen Pompeo is pregnant, not necessarily Meredith. This blind is purely about the show.

  • j

    i think it’s cuddy from house….she just adopted a baby, hence the end of the BI, and House is just nuts to begin with. Add in his addictions, kutner, and now his hallucination of ctb, and he’d need a lot of help.

  • PJ

    Cuddy and House have yet to do the nasty, don’t think it’s her.

  • David D.

    I vote for Christina Yang.

  • Pats

    I think the reveal was The Ghost Whisperer.

  • Becca

    Hmm… Molly Ringwald on Secret Life of the American Teenager? Though it’s already known that she’s going to be pregnant.

  • nikki

    Im going with Cuddy and House on this…noone knows truly if they ever have or not. And with all the vikes House takes do you think he’d remember it? not only that but before the season even started there where rumors someone on the show would be having a baby so its either CUddy or Cameron…or maybe Foreman and 13…who know, but Im sayin its someone important on house

  • Pamplemoose

    SJP and Matthew Broderick? Does a surrogate count?

  • Beeve

    Jennifer Love Hewitt on Ghost Whisperer. Her husband,Jim’s soul jumped into another body so he has been “going through some stuff lately”. There have been pics of her preg. on the show.

  • mombu

    My guess is whats her name on Private Practice. It was revealed on the show that shes unable to have any kids, so professionally a pregnancy wouldnt fit in the storyline. Plus shes going through that nasty divorce with all the rumors about both of their sexualities. PLUS she was married to Derek Shepherd (neurosurgeon) on Greys, and she was on the last episode of Private Practice getting ready to help deliver Violets baby (Violet being the psychologist). It kind of fits…and it is an awful time professionalyl adn personally to get pregnant.
