UPDATE: E! Online reports that Heather will be on Glee throughout the rest of Season 4. Whether or not she'll be back for Season 5 remains unclear.
Have you heard the fabulous news? The Stork is just as obsessed with Glee as we are, and he's dropping off an adorable bundle of joy to everyone's favorite ditzy Cheerio, Heather Morris (Brittany S. Pierce)! Heather is reportedly pregnant with her first child, and we couldn't be more thrilled to welcome a new baby into the glee Club. But wait...if Glee gets renewed for a fifth season, this gal will be rocking a serious baby bump during filming. Ruh-roh!
Heather reported to be about three months along. Glee Season 5 would begin filming in July, which would put her at the 6 month mark. She might not be showing now, but her pregnancy would be pretty hard to disguise for those last three months.
The Glee Powers That Be can deal with Heather's pregnancy in one of three ways. They could either disguise it with clever camera angles and gigantic mumus, write it into the show (a Sam [Chord Overstreet] + Brittany baby? Yes, please!), or they can write her character off Glee. We know, it's completely unthinkable — but let's be real. Glee has a huge cast, and some of the old gang have already been edged out (Amber Riley [Mercedes Jones] and Dianna Agron [Quinn Fabray] come to mind).
Fingers crossed that Heather's unexpected pregnancy is written into Glee so Brittany can keep bringing the LOLs, because we can't imagine the show without her! Plus, Brit's bun in the oven would bring so much drama — and Santana's reaction would be priceless!
Do you think Heather's pregnancy will get her written off Glee? Spill your theories in the poll!
