Susan Kelechi Watson, who plays Randall’s wife, Beth, told ET that the relevant scenes about the shocking surprise weren’t even in the initial script. “It was one of the those things that was left out of the script when we first got it,” she said of the pregnancy reveal. “But it was such a lovely moment. When I finally did get to read the script for that scene, I could just imagine Chrissy [Metz].”
