‘When Calls the Heart’ Teases Huge News for Rosemary and Lee – Is She Pregnant?

The moment Rosemary and Lee have long been waiting for may finally be here. A preview for the May 8 episode of When Calls the Heart hints that Rosemary is pregnant and that the fan-favorite couple may soon become parents.

Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) and Lee (Kavan Smith) have made no secret of their desire to become parents. But sadly, the couple – who married back in season 3 – have not yet been able to have a child.

Rosemary seemed to have accepted that she was not likely to have become a mother. However, it looks like that may soon change. A preview (via YouTube) for When Calls the Heart Season 9 Episode 10 suggests that the editor of the Valley Voice gets some unexpected – yet very welcome – news. 

Though most of the clip focuses on fallout from Lucas’s involvement with Walden, it ends by teasing “a must-see moment you’ve been waiting for.” Rosemary sits on the exam table in the Dr. Carter’s (Andrea Brooks) office, a stunned look on her face. 

Next, we see Rosemary with her best friend Elizabeth (Erin Krakow). “I don’t have a fever,” she says to Elizabeth, who can’t hide her shock. “I was trying to tell you.” 

The next episode of ‘When Calls the Heart’ is titled ‘Never Say Never’ 

A sneak peek for the upcoming episode of the Hallmark Channel series (via YouTube) sheds some more light on Rosemary’s situation. In that clip, she’s suffering from what she thinks is a stomach bug. 

“I don’t want you possibly catching anything and passing it along to [Lucas] or to Little Jack,” she tells Elizabeth. But if our suspicions are correct, Rosemary’s condition definitely isn’t contagious. 

The episode title, “Never Say Never,” offers another hint that Rosemary is going to learn she’s pregnant. While Rosemary and Lee appeared to have written off the idea of becoming parents, perhaps they’ll learn that miracles do happen and you should never say never. 

Here’s the official episode description from Hallmark Channel: 

Elizabeth and Rosemary don’t agree on the best way to share unsettling news with the town about the coal mines, but that’s put behind them when Rosemary hears even more shocking news. 

Pascale Hutton has said she thinks it would be ‘hilarious’ if Rosemary gets pregnant

After “Never Say Never,” there are only two episodes left in When Calls the Heart Season 9. That means that if Rosemary is pregnant, fans aren’t likely to see much of her journey to motherhood until season 10 (assuming Hallmark Channel renews the show). 

Hutton and Smith have both talked about their desire for their characters to become parents, either naturally or through adoption. Aside from it being a potentially heartwarming storyline, Hutton thinks it has plenty of comic potential. 

“I think it would be hilarious to see Rosemary pregnant,” she said in a 2021 interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Smith agreed. 

“For Lee and Rosemary, with the two quirky characters that they are to go through [a pregnancy] together?” he said. “It’s just a gold mine of fun to be had.”  

The next episode of When Calls the Heart Season 9 airs Sunday, May 8 at 8 p.m. ET on Hallmark Channel.
