Is Alex Kingston really pregnant? : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

As my question states, I am wondering if anyone knows if Alex Kingston is pregnant? I thought that I had read it somewhere, but I couldn't find it. If it is true it will be neat to see how they handle it. I wonder if they will just try to hide it, and have her go on a vacation when she is on maternity leave. If you have any info on it, just wondering. thanks

ER is very good with hiding pregnacies. Glenn Headley was pregnant at the time she portrayed Dr. Abby Keaton. Watch and you'll find that they either shot her from the chest up or they put her in very baggy hospital scrubs. However, I think it would be cool if Dr. Corday became pregnant with Dr. Greene's child. It would make for an interesting story line.

That would be very cool but is Alex actually pregant?

Yes, I never even knew/noticed Glenn was pregnant. (I wasn't up to speed with all things ER at the time...I've watched since the beginning, but didn't become *fully* obsessed till mid 5th season :-))

Anyway, the Alex pregnant rumor has been floating around since the beginning of the season. So far she's still not pregnant. :-) From what I've read, she *does* desire to have a child. She's just worried about "throwing a wrench" in the storyline. She also did say that she could just wear scrubs all the time if she were to get pregnant because "you look pregnant in them anyway."

but have any of you seen her recently?? on any talk shows or anything? i mean since she hasnt been around since you never know!

Sorry, I don't know either. I do think that maybe a baby wouldn't be a wrench at all. That wouldn't be the expected line, but I think it would be...nice :D. We all see how good Mark is with kids and I'm sure he'd like another one. Elizabeth...I think there would be Many possibilities with her. Just think what Romano would have to say! When I first heard the rumour, I thought of a plot where an accident would occur and they would lose the baby. But that would be too sad! Any possible PTB around, Don't do that! Baby Susie left and now so have the twins, so it would be grand to have a permanent tot around the place.

I think if Alex Kingston got pregnant they should add it to the show. Just think of the possibilities with her & Mark; baby & Mark; baby, Elizabeth, & mother; Lizzie as mother & Romano; Rachael & baby.

BTW May, there IS a tot on the show somewhere. Reese Benton. Though he appears to be in permanent day care right now.

I know this is an old thread and you probably already have figured out the answer, but yes, Alex Kingston is pregnant, I read it in People magazine. :)
