When an actress is signed up to a specific project for a number of years, whether it be a movie franchise or a television series, when they go and fall pregnant it throws up a lot of issues for the makers of the project. With an actress falling pregnant a decision has to be made fairly quickly as to what they are going to do with the character that she plays in the project.
Most of you will remember that Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson fell pregnant right before filming for the movie Avengers: Age of Ultron, which led many fans to worry that she would be left out of the movie or replaced. On that occasion, Joss Whedon and his team decided to use stunt doubles, camera angles and CGI to help hide the pregnancy.
One of the latest stars to see her pregnancy affect her role, is Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere, who is expecting her first child with her partner Wladimir Klitschko. There has been talk as to how this pregnancy would affect her role as Juliette Barnes in Nashville and it has now been confirmed that we will see the character fall pregnant in the show.
This has now led to fans wondering who will be the father of the baby. If you remember, Juliette cheated on Avery (Jonathan Jackson) and slept with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson). Since Oliver has been promoted to a season regular, it is expected that Jeff will be the father of the baby.
Nashville season three will premiere on ABC in the US on Wednesday, September 24 at 10/9c.
