We already know that when Grey’s Anatomy picks back up, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) is most likely saying yes to the proposal brought to him by the president — well, duh. And we know that Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is not going to be happy about him going back on his promise to her — another duh.

But according to TV Line, there could be more going on with Derek than his brain mapping project with POTUS — and as far as spoilers go, we did not see this one coming.

So what’s up with our favorite brain surgeon? Apparently, next Thursday’s episode (finally!) will “have you asking the question, ‘Is there a little Derek Shepherd running around out there that we never knew about?!’” Um, yikes?

Being that the only ex of Derek’s that we’ve met is Addison (Kate Walsh) and we know the baby isn’t hers, we’re assuming that, if Derek does, in fact, have a surprise baby, it’s got to belong to a mother we’ve never heard of — perhaps a random hookup while Derek and Meredith were on a break in their pre-marriage tumultuous dating life?

We just ask one thing of you, Shonda — please, please don’t let it be a Nurse Rose thing. And as adorable as a mini-Derek would be, we’re crossing our fingers that one doesn’t exist at all.

Do you think Derek has a love child? Weigh in below!
