Grey's Anatomy Star Jessica Capshaw Pregnant—Will It Affect the Show?

Grey's Anatomy, Jessica Capshaw ABC/RANDY HOLMES

Time for Callie and Arizona to have another baby on Grey's Anatomy!

OK, so maybe we're getting a teeny-tiny bit ahead of ourselves, but Jessica Capshaw (Arizona) has announced via Twitter that she's pregnant in real life: "It is with profound happiness and sheer delight that Christopher Gavigan and I can say that another sweet Gavigan baby is on the way!"

So how will that affect the show?

Well, we can tell you that unlike her first real-life pregnancy, Jessica's character Arizona won't be shipped off to Africa (marking one of the saddest breakups the show has ever seen). Grey's boss Shonda Rhimes has tweeted "I won't," and adding that Grey's has included one real-life pregnancy in the past: "Bailey. Season 2."

The last time Jessica took a hiatus from set (and her character bolted for Africa), Callie slept with McSteamy (Eric Dane) and got pregnant. So maybe now it's time for a more planned pregnancy for Callie and Arizona?

Rhimes also points out that the Grey's cast has produced a sizeable offspring during the show's eight-year run, "Brings our number up to 10. We've had a lot of Writer Babies, too!"

Congrats, Jessica!
