Ever since the end of Glee Season 3, Sue (Jane Lynch) has been teasing us with the fact that she was knocked up by a celebrity stud. We weren’t sure if we’d ever learn the lucky guy’s identity — and then finally the word got out during the Season 4 finale!
During last week’s finale, Brittany (Heather Morris) channels her inner Maury by proving that Robin’s dad is actually — wait for it! — adult-contempo god Michael Bolton. Apparently, Sue met the singer in 1994, where she inadvertently punctured his lung with a letter opener but then saved him from choking on his own hair. Hair like his is both a blessing and a curse.
Michael owed Sue a favor, which she finally cashed in to make a baby. Sadly, we don’t get a glimpse of this surely hilarious sex scene, but we do learn that Mike was a “fantastic lover.” Then again, even that might be TMI.
So are you happy with the choice of the “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” vocalist — or were you hoping the baby daddy would be someone else? After all, Sue has had her share of celebrity trysts, so we were kinda hoping Robin’s father would be former Sue fling David Boreanaz. Alas.
And now we’re wondering whether Michael Bolton might someday grace Glee with his hunky presence. After all, he’s done a bit of acting before, most recently playing himself on a 2012 episode of Two and a Half Men. And he clearly has a sense of humor about his persona, judging by his contribution to the Emmy-nominated Lonely Island song, “Jack Sparrow.”
But will Glee have to live without Michael Bolton? We shall see.
