‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Camilla Luddington Has the Most Magical Pregnancy Announcement
Camilla Luddington’s character — Jo Wilson on Grey’s Anatomy — had severe baby fever this season, so it seems fitting that she is pregnant in real life. Let’s take a look at the magical baby announcement.
When did Camilla Luddington announce her pregnancy?
“‘I’m just gonna do a super casual pregnancy announcement,’” Luddington wrote on Instagram on Mar. 9, 2020. “Also me: ‘I NEED PRINCESSES!!!!!!’”
She posted an adorable photo of her baby bump with Cinderella. So far, her pregnancy has been very rough. Luddington reports being exhausted and has had morning sickness that lasts all day long. She admits that she is often heading to the bathroom while filming Grey’s Anatomy.
“Have I been 🤮 mid filming at work?” Luddington’s caption continued. “Yep! Oh, the glamor of growing new humans 🤣. But in all seriousness, we feel so lucky, and I can’t wait to bring you guys along for the remaining months of this baby #2 journey!!”
Who is Luddington married to? Does she have any other children?
Luddington married fellow actor, Matthew Alan on August 17, 2019. The couple already has one child together, Hayden. The two were only dating when they announced that they were expecting their first child. However, Alan proposed on December 31, 2017, and they married 18 months later.
Alan and Luddington’s first daughter, Hayden, turned three-years-old over the weekend of March 7, 2020. They celebrated with a Little Mermaid themed cake.
“It’s Hayden’s birthday weekend, and I’m SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!” Luddington shared on Instagram. “I cannot believe I have a three-year-old or ‘threenager.’”
Will Luddington’s pregnancy be worked into the storyline of Jo Wilson on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’?
“SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!” wrote Shonda Rhimes, executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy.
The producer of the medical drama is very excited for Luddington. The remainder of the comments of Luddington’s photo includes enthusiastic “Congratulations” sentiments. Everyone is very happy for the couple. However, fans are wondering if her pregnancy will turn up on Grey’s Anatomy.
“I swear if they make Jo pregnant with Alex gone, I’m going to be mad,” wrote one fan. “ LMAO, congrats, though.”
The speculation has begun already regarding Jo possibly being pregnant on Grey’s Anatomy. Her husband on the show, Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), recently revealed that he has two children with Izzie Stephens. We know that Chambers is not returning to the show, so it would seem unlikely that it could be his baby on-screen.
There is no evidence yet indicating that her pregnancy will be worked into the storyline. However, Rhimes is known for writing things like this in. When Amelia Shepherd was pregnant on Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, it was because Caterina Scorsone was pregnant in real life. Rhimes wrote Scorsone’s pregnancies into the show twice! So, it is possible that we might see a future reveal that Jo is also pregnant.
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday nights at 9 pm ET on ABC.
