Logan? Jess? Dean? The Wookie? Ever since Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiered on Netflix in November, fans have been eager to figure out the paternity of Rory Gilmore’s unborn child.
Those final four words – “Mom,” “Yes?” “I’m pregnant.” – are sure to shake up Stars Hollow, so Variety asked star Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) to weigh in on who he thinks the father might be.
“I don’t think it’s any of the three guys at all,” the This Is Us star quipped. “I don’t know. You know what, I haven’t really sat around and thought about it, wondered who it was, so I’ll be as surprised as anyone else is.”
The show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino previously told E! News that there are “a lot of clues out there,” as to who is the father of Rory’s child, but ultimately didn’t want the focus to be on the men.
“I always feel a lot of people overlook a lot more of Rory because the focus was so much on the romance. And I didn’t want this moment to be about a boy,”Sherman-Palladino also told TVLine. “The moment was about, ‘Here’s what I’m going through in my life now!’ It’s an ‘Oh, s**t’ moment about Rory. Her discussion with Lorelai is going to be about, ‘What do I do? Where do I go from here?’ It’s not going to be about, ‘I can’t believe it’s this boy that wound up….’”
As for whether or not the show will be returning to give fans the answers to their burning questions, star Alexis Bledel (Rory) wasn’t giving any hints when she spoke with reporters at Hulu’s Television Critics Association press day last week.
“I haven’t heard anything,” she insisted. “I really don’t know. It hasn’t been a conversation as of yet.”
Despite the controversial relationship between Rory and Logan in the show's revival, actor Matt Czuchry (Logan) defended the longtime couple, recently telling ET, "I think they were both in the same place at the same time. Rory and Logan have always had a love for each other that has gone back and forth, and they've never really wanted to say goodbye. They're both in the same place at the same time in this particular story, so it's a mutual relationship that they're carrying on."
