Warning: Spoilers ahead from Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
Is Amelia Shepherd pregnant? She got the answer, but it wasn’t the one she was hoping for.
On the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy, titled “Both Sides Now,” Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) and her husband, Owen (Kevin McKidd), were thrilled at the possibility that they could soon be a family of three, after recently deciding to try for a baby.
Though Amelia jumped the gun, excitedly telling her Grey-Sloan Memorial colleagues -- including Meredith (ET exclusively debuted that particular scene) and Maggie -- that she was expecting, it wasn’t until the very end of the episode that she finally took the pregnancy test (with Owen by her side, of course) and got the bittersweet news that she wasn’t, in fact, pregnant.
Up until that point, even Owen had gotten accustomed to the idea of being a father, when he unexpectedly found himself changing diapers and lulling Jackson and April’s newborn daughter, Harper, to sleep.
Hopefully, though, this is just the beginning of Amelia and Owen’s journey to expanding their brood. They sure would make amazing parents, as some of their cohorts implied.
So, at least for now, it looks like the Grey’s writers aren’t incorporating Scorsone’s real-life pregnancy into Amelia’s storyline. But it sure will be difficult to keep the actress’ growing baby bump hidden from plain view with flowy shirts and lab coats!
In August, ET was the first to report that the 34-year-old actress was expecting her second child with husband Rob Giles. Scorsone said at the time that she didn’t believe the news would be written into the show.
“Owen and Amelia, they got married really fast, and marriage is like a seismic shift in a person's life, let alone two people who are coming to the table with deep wounds and scars,” she explained. “So I think negotiating that transition into inter-dependent life is going to be dramatic and challenging. We'll see how that goes!"
Only time will tell!
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
