Wonder if they’ll do another “E” name? :)

Yeay! I love her, and her hubby is gorgeous too! Her children are adorable and I’m so happy they’re having another one!

Liliana on

Congrats to the entire family! I didn’t realize her children were that old, already.

Her husband is funny. He posted pictures of the pregnancy test on Twitter lol. Congrats to them and I’m sincerely hoping they don’t write this in the show.

Hea on

Love her!

Congratulations to Becky & Michael. Love her; love her character Elizabeth (even with what tptb are doing to her character lately). I’ve read that she’s wanted a 3rd child for a long time. Glad she decided to follow her heart.

pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease don’t write this into the show!! they’ve already ruined her character enough!

but congrats to her in real life, her kids are adorable! :)

Congratulations!!

Probably will go with another E name. Emmeline (Emmalyn), Emma, Emily, Eden, Elena, Eliza, Elise, Elliana, Eloise, Eva, Eve for girls. But I see them going with Emma or Emily. And for boys Elijah, Elliot, Evan, Eli, Eric, Emerson, Emery, Emmett, Everett, Ezra for boys. I see them going with Evan, Elijah, or something along those lines.

Wonder if the father is Nicholas or Lucky. Of course they will write it into the storyline. It couldn’t have worked out better. They have butchered her character so much, they might as well take it all the way.

Congratulations to Becky and Michael! I love her and I think her kids are SO beautiful.

However,I hope they don’t write this into her storyline. Elizabeth used to be one of my favorite characters on the show,but they have destroyed her. She’s already got two kids by two different men. I am really hoping they go the big purse and cleverly placed plant route with this pregnancy!

Love her! So happy for her and her husband! I bet this one will start with the letter E as well!

I am so happy for her and her family! She has the cutest family! I just hope that they don’t write it into her storyline… although yesterday’s show (1/14) kind of left a hint that it may happen…….

I haven’t watch GH in quite some time now but I’m dying to know…what did they do to Elizabeth’s character? Loved the show when I watched it and loved her! Congrats to them = )

Jonathan Jackson came back as Lucky and Elizabeth and Lucky got engaged. Liz however started to have feelings for Nikolas, Lucky’s brother, and they had an affair behind Lucky’s back. It’s been really bad…

jashmom on

That’s awesome! Congrats to Rebecca, Michael and their entire family! I wonder if her pregnancy will be written into GH. Like another poster said, the timing couldn’t be perfect! And of course it would be anther “Who’s the baby’s daddy” plot.

JMO on

I actually thought she’d have another baby.

Luna on

i love the kids names. hope they go with something just as great. i’m loving the e theme. congrats rebecca, michael, ethan, and ella.

Jenn on

I figured it was just a matter of time before Elizabeth got pregnant, so now the writers have the perfect excuse for it. Congrats to Rebecca and Michael – I was wondering if they were going to have another child or if two was enough for them.

Carrie on

She has to have a boy and name him Wyatt. I have 3 kids, Ethan, Ella and Wyatt!! It’s meant to be!

luciana on

I think they will have a girl and give it another E name

Jennifer on

Congratulations to Rebecca and Michael!

I have to agree with those who have said that her pregnancy probably will be written into the storyline. However, I, personally, would rather it not be – Elizabeth’s character has been completely destroyed, and the “who’s the Daddy” storyline is so overdone.

Deirdre on

Congratulations to the entire family!! How exciting for them! I remember reading a Mother’s Day article in a soap opera magazine with her children in it and she said that both her and Michael didn’t intend on an E theme and that they weren’t looking to continue it. However this article was about four years old! :)

As a GH fan, I really hope that they don’t write the pregnancy into Liz’s storyline unless they want Lucky to be the father. But I trust that however it’s sorted it will work out well.

Jess from Ohio on

I am ecstatic for Rebecca and her family, but I sincerely hope they don’t write this into the show and make a whos-the-daddy storyline. But I fear they probably will. What perfect timing :/

Jen K on

Another happy camper here about the baby news…unless it’s written into the story. And if it is, it MUST be Lucky;s! I mean, if not, Liz would then have three kids, and not one of them really Lucky’s, the love of her life??? LAME!

I had the chance to meet both Becky & Michael a few years ago. They were both so nice!!

T on

Congrats to her. I hope she has a girl.

CAB on

Congrats to Becky and Michael! Elizabeth is my favorite character on GH! I know it may not be popular but I love Liz and Nick! They are making the show for me and their chemistry is off the charts! Though, I am not behind Liz having another baby, for me a pregnancy would not make sense, it would be forced….

But anyway, back to the topic! I am so happy for Becky and Michael, I too remember reading an interview Becky gaveand she said she wanted a third baby. I am so happy she has a new little one on the way, her wish came true!! Her older two are so adorable that I know this one is going to be just as cute as their brother and sister and not to mention his/her georgous parents!
