Blind Item: Who's Got a Bun In the Oven?

‘Tis the season when producers begin villainously twirling mustaches as they concoct season-ending cliffhangers that they hope will torture us all summer long. And the execs at one show — an hourlong drama, and a popular one at that! — have come up with a doozie.

According to an insider, much like 90210‘s impending baby bombshell, the series in question will end its season by revealing that one of its major female characters is pregnant! The news will catch everyone by surprise, no one more so than the mommy and daddy-to-be, who weren’t exactly trying to have a child. The baby boom will also come as a shock for another reason, but to give that away would narrow the field of candidates too much.

However, I’ll leave you with one clue: Unlike Gossip Girl‘s climactic reveal that Georgina was pregnant in its May 2010 season finale, in this case there will be no mystery about the identity of the father.

    I really wouldn’t be surprised if it was Cuddy!

  2. chris says:

    silver & naveed, 90210

  3. Kayla says:

    Well, they’re not trying so that leaves out Meredith and Derek. =[

  4. Hannah says:

    Adam and Kristina from Parenthood.

  5. Dave says:

    BTW … can we define “popular”? Are we talking popular among people online … or popular ratings-wise?

  6. Lisa says:

    I would love for it to be Cristina, because she would be hillarious pregnant but I doubt it. Just to much baby drama going on there, doubt Shonda would have another pregnancy because we KNOW Mer/Der will be.

  7. A says:

    Zeke and Bonnie Bedilia’s character in Parenthood.

  8. Lindsey says:

    I think it’s Kitty on Brothers and Sisters… I’m not sure if that show still qualifies as a hit, but I’ve been thinking Kitty would get pregnant for awhile. It makes sense that she and Ryan Devlin’s character would have a baby together because he said that if the show returns next season he will become a series regular!

  9. kim says:

    How about Gabby on Parenthood. Daddy would be Crosby and wouldn’t that cause some major drama

  10. Sunny says:

    NAOMI on Private Practice.

    (explain THAT one, Naomi! Let alone Little Miss Non-Abortion.) haha

    What do I win? :)

  11. Alex says:

    My guess is Chuck and Sarah!

  12. Dee says:

    Alicia -The Good Wife

  13. Tigger Olsen says:

    It is obviously Lois from Smallville… oh wait is that show coming back?

  14. Couldhappen says:

    Annie via Abed on Community.

  15. Gambs says:

    I’m going with Grey’s Anatomy, but here’s the twist. It’s Lexie and Mark. The shock being that Mark is already the father of Callie’s baby.

  16. JB says:

    Cuddy on House.

  17. Emily P says:

    Lexie and Avery from Grey’s Anatomy

  18. T says:

    well I’m sure this is wrong, but since I watch all of like 3 or 4 shows and only one could really fit into this I going to guess Hannah and Caleb on PLL?

  19. Mandy says:

    I REALLY hope its Cuddy.

  20. Jackie says:

    I’m not going to posit a guess, just a theory: does the key phrase “mass debate” offer up a hint?

  21. kat says:

    I’m going to say HOUSE but not Cuddy its going to be 13 and Foreman…could be why 13 left

  22. nook says:

    Sara Sidle

    LOL

  23. George Shea says:

    CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK

  24. Allyson says:

    I’m also paying attention to Ausiello’s offhanded comment at the end of this article: “Get a mass debate (tee-hee) going in the comments section!”
    Mass debate, huh? Could it be a show that has been sparking a lot of debate lately? Makes me think even more that it might be house…but I just…it seems crazy.

    • Amber says:

      I don’t think it’s a hint, I think he was just saying it as a joke. “Mass debate” sounds like “masturbate”. Tee hee!

  25. Saf says:

    Jay and Gloria…from modern family. That would be hilarious.

  26. MerDer4ever says:

    I want to say Grey’s and I badly want this for MerDer but the finale is still far away and even the actors might not have info about it YET so I doubt its Grey’s However I do see such a possibility playing out for Mer “fingers crossed”

  27. A says:

    I’m going to say Brooke from One Tree Hill

  28. Edisto says:

    As long as it’s not Beckett from Castle, I don’t care all that much. Cuddy would be evil after last night, so that would be right up TPTB’s sleeves!

    • ACP says:

      Or Gina from Castle (as the actress is pregnant in real life). Barf!

      • Edisto says:

        Oh is that why she didn’t come on the show for the break up?

        But I can’t really see that happening either. Also, they broke up in January, wouldn’t she know way before May that she’s pregnant?

        • ACP says:

          I think that’s why she didn’t return onscreen. And you’re right it probably isn’t likely – she would be pretty big by this point anyway. Plus she’s not really a major character.

  29. m says:

    I have to say Yang on Grey`s Anatomy. Because of the falopian tube she lost it would be a surprise. Or Cuddy on House. That would be hillarious

  30. Karlee says:

    Lexie and Avery on Grey’s

  31. Mary says:

    Cristina from Greys

  32. dld says:

    susan on desperate housewives

  33. Tara says:

    I’m going with Ellie and Awesome on Chuck. Shock because they just had a baby and they aren’t trying to get pregnant. The actress who plays Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) is pregnant in real life so either they need to write it into the show or she needs to go on a “retreat” for awhile.

  34. Ingmar says:

    Cant believe noone said Brooke yet of One Tree Hill! This will most defintely be the SERIES finale aswell; and they are not realy trying since she thinks she cant get children. I bet it would be her.

    Second choice, but way far less would be Christina.

  35. Lindsey says:

    Addison on (Private Practice)
    – Addison and Sam aren’t trying because they are still debating the baby issue
    – has fertility issues
    – no question who the father is

  36. Trish says:

    Please Please let it be Cuddy!

  37. Mike says:

    Cuddy. Because getting her pregnant by House is a new way to ruin a once-great show.

  38. CafeBina says:

    Christina and Owen! The last few episodes have talked about how she doesn’t want children and it is creating a major issue in their relationship! No question who the father is AND it would be a shock! (Not so shocking for Meredith… no shock at all really.)

    Or House and Cuddy would definitley be shocking after last night’s episode!

  39. Angela says:

    I’m guessing Owen and Christina. He wants a child, she doesn’t (and shouldn’t). Not everyone wants to be a parent. This is the one issue neither side should compromise on.

  40. Michelle says:

    Could be Christina and Owen, that would be a huge blow to Meredith especially since they just repaired their friendship.

    Other guesses: Sam and Addison, Jenna & Alaric (TVD), Olivia & Peter of this world.

  41. Julia says:

    This fits with a rumor I heard a while back about Supernatural. Praying that I’m wrong, because Lisa being pregnant would probably be one of the stupidest things the show could do.

  42. Allison says:

    How about something crazy: The Vampire Diaries! Stefan and Elena. Sure, he’s a vampire, but that’s what is so shocking!

  43. Melissa says:

    Zeke and his wife from Parenthood! =o)

  44. Stephanie says:

    Cristina and Owen on Grey’s! Kevin McKidd has been hinting for a while that the baby issue was going to be a big deal for them and there was that called off season 5 story line about her getting pregnant which Kevin said they decided to save for another time. It wouldn’t suprise me at all if it was them because it would create so much drama, since she a.) doesnt want to have a baby now (or ever) and b.) Meredith and Derek has been trying for forever and haven’t been able to so itll create drama with Mer if Cristina even mentions the word ‘abortion’ to her.

  45. C says:

    I was thinking Parenthood. Thought the “not trying to have a baby” was a tip towards Julia and her husband who have been trying. I’d be shocked if any of the other women turned up preggers!

  46. Jason says:

    Sarah on Chuck?

  47. Doktor Sleepless says:

    Elena on The Vampire Diaries. Although I hope that isn’t the case since Angel already did it.

  48. ruby says:

    our olivia is pregnant which explains the doppleganger blind item the baby in our universe and the baby in the alternate universe

  49. louise says:

    Someone on Parenthood…NOT Julia. Amber, maybe? Or Kristina.

  50. OwenCristinafan says:

    omg I am thinking its going to be Owen and Cristina!!! They were suppose to get pregnant in season 5 and then raise the baby in season 6 soo I wonder if Shonda has something up her sleeve for them!! I am kind of hoping they would be sooo cute as parents Cristina would be hilarious as a mom!!!!
