Grey's Anatomy: From Wedding Bells to Onesies

You know what's almost always the best thing ever? When the female member of your OTP gets pregnant in real life. Granted, there are times where this either does you no good (fans of Mark/Lexie, for instance) or makes you cringe because you kind of hate the meta reality (Sydney Bristow getting pregnant all because Ben Affleck let one slip), but usually such events bring nothing but bouncing, twirling and spinning in glee - because usually it means you're going to get an OTP baby out of the deal.

In case you haven't already heard: Ellen Pompeo is pregnant, you guys (!!!)

First of all, a HUGE congratulations to her and Chris. Awesome news. So excited. Caroline and I love celebrity babies. The more the merrier! (Unless, of course, you are Jennifer Morrison and Amaury Nolasco. Please don't join the club. Please. Don't.)

Anyway! Second of all, Ellen will be in about her fifth month by the time Grey's returns to the studios to start filming the new season. They've managed (so far) to hide Chyler Leigh's pregnancy, although it's pretty obvious, but the only reason they've pulled it off for this long is because she was in the beginning months while they filmed. And also that she's not Meredith Grey - she's easier to put on the backburner for a while. But I don't see how they're going to hide Ellen's third-trimester belly, here.

Meredith Grey is going to end up preggers, y'all. She has to. I really don't comprehend how they work around it. Jennifer Garner couldn't even carry a baby inconspicuously - you really think teeny, tiny 100-pound Ellen Pompeo is going to? No. A McBaby is in our very near future.

Which is fine, because they'll get married before the end of this season anyway. And Derek really, really wants all of Meredith's crappy babies. Might as well start ASAP.

And, for the record, the spumors about TR Knight leaving/George being sent off to war to die made it ridiculously easy for me to predict the name of this McBaby: Georgia/Georgie Shepherd.

I reserve the right to change my prediction if the TR Knight spumors go up in smoke, but for now - Georgia or Georgie. And I'm really feeling Georgia even more.

As Caroline said last night, the one thing you can be certain of is that little Georgia Shepherd will be consistently bright and shiny - she won't have a dark and twisty fiber in her precious little being.

Who's excited? I know I am.

I'm all for a McBaby! :)

But as far as the baby's name goes...I'm not so sure. We already have a baby named after George. Dr. Bailey's son, remember?
