Will Grey's Anatomy Incorporate Sarah Drew's Pregnancy?

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew is pregnant, as we reported yesterday. Congratulations again to the 30-year-old actress and her husband, Peter Lanfer!

This exciting news, of course, is accompanied by the question of how the show will work around Drew's changing body and life for the next 6-12 months.

The show has not been inclined to write an actress' pregnancy into the script before, as we've seen recently with Ellen Pompeo and Jessica Capshaw.

Will the handling of Drew's character, April, be any different?

The fact that April is a virgin makes it even less likely that we'll see a pregnant Dr. Kepner in season eight ... or does it? That would be a heck of a plot twist.

Thus far, the only thing Grey's producers have to say to us regarding Drew's condition is they have "not determined" if her character will also be pregnant.

April has made a big deal about saving herself for someone she truly loves. It's one of her central characteristics. Maybe we'll meet Mr. Right very soon?

What do you think? Would you rather see pregnant April, or conveniently always behind an operating table/sent off to Africa for three episodes April? Discuss!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Izzie: They tried number 9? Who does 9?
Sadie: Well personally I'm a fan of 5, 7, 8, pretty much 12 through 20.
Meredith (laughs): I would try 15.
Izzie: Don't. Don't try 15. I would try 16. Yeah. I've never done that before.
Alex: You'd try 16?
Izzie: Uh huh. I would. I totally would. (Izzie and Alex look at each other then quickly leave the table)
Lexie: Um, don't do 16 too fast. It can hurt badly ... I heard.
