Season 1 of The Originals concerned itself with Hayley Marshall (Phoebe Tonkin) and Klaus Mikaelson’s (Joseph Morgan) impending hybrid baby. Now that Hope Mikaelson has been born and is safely residing outside New Orleans with Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt), will there be any other babies in Season 2?


While one fan wrote into TVLine this week wondering if there was any scoop about baby Hope this fall, Michael Ausiello responded with some other, rather interesting, baby news. Apparently someone else in the French Quarter is going to stop at nothing to have a bundle of joy. Who is this baby-crazed gal?

TVLine goes on to tease that producers are currently casting for a character named Ingrid. This new character — who isn’t described as anything supernatural — is supposedly barren and isn’t going to rest until she has a baby…even if she has to lie to her hubby about how she gets one.

The obvious solution to Ingrid’s problem seems to be the witches who reside in the supernatural section of NOLA. Since they didn’t get Klaus and Hayley’s miracle hybrid baby, who knows what they might have up their sleeve this time around. This is a whole other level of baby mama drama.

What do you think is going down with this storyline in Season 2? Hit the comments and sound off!
