How Can a Woman Have a Baby Whose Father Is Two Different Guys?

Sep 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The answer is if the woman is an actress and her character is pregnant at the same time she’s pregnant in real life.

It happened most famously to Lucy Ball and Lucy Ricardo. Lucille Ball was pregnant with her son in real life at the same time her character was preggers.

And it’ll be true this season as well: On her new CBS sitcom "Accidentally on Purpose," Jenna Elfman plays a character who unexpectedly gets pregnant. Since she was going to be going through maternity wear anyway, the actress decided this was the perfect time to get pregnant for real, according to People magazine. Jenna and husband Bodhi Elfman are currently expecting their second child. No word yet as to who the on-screen dad is…

  1. One problem with the headline — wasn’t Lucille Ball pregnant by the same guy in both TV and real life?

  2. Hmmm, didn’t even know that Jenna Elfman had a new show coming out. The networks don’t seem to be promoting the new shows as much this year.

  3. I just saw “Accidentally on Purpose”…fairly dismal writing. Jenna is a star, shame. At least she’ll have a real new child to keep her busy as I suspect she’ll have time on her hands.

  4. Just saw “Accidentally on Purpose”…not a very good one.

  5. You make blogging look like a walk in the park! I’ve been trying to blog daily but I just cant find writing material.. you’re an inspiration to me and i’m sure many others!

  6. I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up 🙂
