While Rick Castle and Kate Beckett are deciding whether or not to get married at the start of Castle Season 6, Detective Ryan is bracing himself for his own major life event: the birth of his first child!

After successfully getting pregnant during Season 5, Ryan and Jenny are now just months away from becoming a family of three, and it sounds like the new addition will most certainly affect Ryan’s work at the precinct.  

"You're going to see a lot of choices that Ryan is going to make [about] how he feels about being a cop at this point," Seamus Dever tells TV Guide. "We're going to see him be a little uncomfortable with being in the line of fire and being in danger's way.”

In addition to re-evaluating his job, Seamus also reveals that impending fatherhood will impact Ryan’s bromance with Esposito.

"They're no longer single dudes," he says. "Ryan is like, 'I have to go home and see the wife. That's the way it is.'"

First Beckett relocates to D.C. and now a baby might break up Ryan and Esposito?! We can’t handle all of these drastic changes.

Are you psyched for different dynamics in Season 6, or is this too much for you to handle? Tell us your thoughts below.
