It’s baby number two for Haley Scott on “One Tree Hill” — as you’ll recall from the season 7 finale, Haley told Nathan she was preggers and that she thinks it’ll be a girl — but it will be the first real-life bundle of joy for actress Bethany Joy Galeotti.
Though there hasn’t been an official announcement, E! is reporting that Bethany is expecting her first child with her husband of five years, Michael Galeotti.
That leaves us wondering — did the writers concoct the pregnancy storyline because Bethany wanted to start a family with her hubby, or did Bethany find out about the storyline and decide that it was a good time to get pregnant in real life, too?
Either way, Hollywood Crush would like to send Bethany and her growing family some well wishes.
As for “OTH,” we hope the pregnancy storyline leads to Peyton making her way back to Tree Hill. (Seriously, she has to, since a Brooke/Julian wedding without Peyton as the maid of honor would be SACRELIGE.) That way, little Sawyer Brooke Scott can play with her new cousin, and Hilarie and Bethany’s real life babies can be playmates too. Awwww.
There’s just one hitch in our little plan — according to E!, Bethany will likely leave “OTH” if the show is picked up for more episodes beyond its initial order. Ack! If the show goes on, we sincerely hope she’ll stay. But since “OTH” seems to be on its last legs anyway, maybe this will be incentive for the series to exit on a high note instead of giving us heart attacks every time renewal season rolls around.
Leave your congratulations for Bethany in the comments below and let us know what you think about “OTH” coming to a possible end.
