When Adrian goes into labor during the Secret Life Season 3 finale on June 6, Adrian and Ben head to the hospital and the baby dies in childbirth. No Em Gee!

Kenny Baumann sat down with TV Guide to dish about Ben’s upcoming tragedy. Check out what he says about filming the scene and how the loss will impact Badrian.

On his most emotional moment: “There's a scene we have in the hallway when he [Leo] asked if I got to see her, the stillborn baby, and that was the point when I read it where I was like, ‘This is so brutal.’ Then seeing Steve choke up like that, you don't want to see a big man cry like that, and it was incredibly contagious. That was the most emotional moment of the episode for me.”

On how the tragedy will impact Ben and Adrian: “It's going to be tough. That experience can completely drive people apart, but in Ben and Adrian's situation, they can't just run away from each other and they won't for awhile. Everything becomes way more emotionally convoluted and just depressed and challenging. These two kids have to individually deal with that tragedy of losing what they felt was a big part of them, and at the same time, they're still kids ... It's definitely a more interesting and nuanced version of a relationship after this big event.”

On Ben and Adrian’s relationship: “There are really interesting, subtle character moments with Ben and Adrian in regards to getting married: What they think about their past, are they still looking outside their relationship and thinking about the future, are they drawn to other people and are they drawn to ex-loves? It will be a really interesting couple of episodes because you'll see everyone coalesce around this idea of a birth, a new little person entering their lives, and then to see it all fall apart. Certain people and couples come together. It's going to be really climactic and it changes everything; it really does, it changes every relationship.”

You hear that, Secret Lifers? “Certain people and couples come together.” Well, I think we all know what that means: Welcome back Radrian and Bamy!
