Vanessa Ray, star of BLUE BLOODS, has hinted that the Reagans may be welcoming a new member of the family soon.
The popular CBS drama’s 250th episode has just aired, and the Reagans are still going strong. With millions of Blue Bloods fans still hoping for a 13th season, longtime star Vanessa Ray has opened up about what they might be able to expect in the near future.
Vanessa hinted that a new baby might be joining the Reagan family in an upcoming episode of Blue Bloods.
The actress is best known for her long-running role as Officer Eddie Janko-Reagan, which she started in the fourth season of the police drama.
The two officers finally got engaged in the season eight finale after a slow-burn romance with her partner, Jamie Reagan (Will Estes).
Only a season later, in the season nine finale, they married, and Eddie became a member of the Reagan family.
However, Blue Bloods is nearing the end of its 12th season, and the two officers have yet to start a family of their own.
If CBS decides to renew the series for a 13th season, could fans expect to see the Reagan family grow in the coming years?
The two co-stars are certainly upbeat, so a pregnancy announcement could be on the way.
Vanessa teased TV Insider, saying, “A Jamko baby would be fun, wouldn’t it?”
Unfortunately, Eddie may not be willing to trade her busy life on New York’s streets for a drab office job when she goes on maternity leave.
“However, if Eddie became pregnant, it would mean sitting behind a desk,” Vanessa continued.
“I’m not sure she’d like it, but being a part of the Reagan family has changed her in many ways.”
Will, her co-star, was even more evasive in his response, though he didn’t explicitly deny the rumors.
“That’s between God and our writers,” he said. “I’ll be keeping an eye on you.”
Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) already has three grandchildren, but the family hasn’t had any new additions since Blue Bloods debuted in 2010.
However, as Jamie and Eddie get older and want to settle down, this may begin to change.
For the time being, Eddie does not appear willing to give up her important work on the field, and Jamie certainly does not want to give up his best partner.
Alternatively, the series could follow in the footsteps of other primetime dramas and jump ahead a year or two, with Eddie already having given birth.
Alternatively, the couple could consider adoption, which would avoid the pregnancy stage and give the officers more time to focus on their work.
Whatever happens, Blue Bloods fans can expect plenty of surprises and heartwarming drama in the coming weeks.
And, with Vanessa seemingly open to the idea and Eddie indicating a change, this storyline has a good chance of coming to fruition.
