rachel on

while i don’t like sookie/bill on true blood, they do look good together in real life. congratulations to them. if they do decide to put it in the show let’s not make the baby bill’s.

jjj on

She will not be pregnant on the show. The new season has already been filmed, she just found out she’s pregnant, and will have already had the baby before production begins on season six.

Mimi on

I love these two on True Blood and in real life. They seem like they are truly meant for each other. I wish them the best of luck for a long life together as a happy family.

m on

Awesome. Their so cute together.

Devon on

She is reportedly just 12 weeks along, due in November. Filming will finish in July(ish) and they are currently shooting episode 9 so she might be showing near episode 11/12.

They start filming in late November/early December. They normally take a month break or so for Christmas and resume shooting in January. Take a break again in the spring, around episode 9/10, and then go until early/mid July. She will barely have any time before going back to work unless they delay the start of shooting until the new year and forgo the spring break.

Confidence on

Cute couple! They will have cute kids.

MollyF on

Emry on

I knew she was married, but i didn’t know she was married to her co star!!! Thats awesome, i cant wait to see baby pictures now!!! Love them as a couple

tori on

Yeah,love Stephen and Anna. Their so in love and so cute together.Congrats to the whole family:)

Guest on

Congratulations to them! I love the show and she definitely timed it perfectly; the pregnancy will not interfere with either season, because season 5 is almost done filming and season 6 will start filming next year. She is probably not showing too much yet so they can finish this season easily.

Julianna on

So many pregnancy announcements! Congratulations Stephen and Anna. It’s going to be one cute baby!

Anonymous on

For some reason, I wasn’t expecting this. Congrats to them!

Also, I was reading some old posts here and other places to try to find out more about Stephen’s older children and who their mother is…and in most of those it says that Billy and Lilac have different mothers. Yet this post says they’re Stephen’s children “from a previous relationship” indicating that they have the same mother. So which is it? They have different mothers or they have the same mother? And if they have different mothers, I’m surprised that no one has gotten up in arms about the fact that Stephen will soon have three kids with three different women.

Usually male celebs that have that many children with that many women get ripped to shreds. Really, the double-standards on this site never cease to amaze me!

Congrats to them!

raven on

yay! congrats. love both of them. wishing them a long and happy life together with all of their kids ๐Ÿ™‚

karin on

HE IS A WONDERFUL DAD to his other children. Lilac lives near him with her mother who was from England and his son is still in England with his mom and he goes to see him all the time and skypes him every day and he comes out here. Anna will be a great mom. And they are soooooooooo in love.

J on

Chill out Anonymous.

look on

It’s so funny to see people post comments like “he’s a wonderful dad” when they never even met the man or his children. Incredible how one can gain such insight from pictures and television and magazine interviews. Amazing…

Mia on

So excited for them! – I’m guessing she’s due in October! ๐Ÿ™‚

RKF on

@Anonymous – Oh my…calm down. You sound a little crazy.

Anyway…They seem like such an amazing couple, and of course I love them on True Blood. Great news!

Hea on


Holland on

Kat on

Kimberly T on

Jen on

So thrilled for them! I just want to know how Alcede and Eric are taking the news!!!

Amy Y. on

Wow! I didn’t think she would have a baby while still attached to True Blood, but am happy to hear of the great news!

Kelly on

That is awesome. Congrats to the happy couple. And I can’t wait for the 5th season to start too:)

Miss Kiki on

Congrats, they seem like a very happy couple!

Brianne on

I’m not a fan of True Blood, but congrats!!!

Bri on

Congratulations!! I had a feeling Anna will be a mommy soon! First, it was Sam with twins and now it is Anna’s turn! She will be a wonderful mommy! You can tell Stephan and Anna are truly in love even in the TB show. Wow…can’t wait to see if she will show a little bump this coming season! True Blood rocks!

melly on

OOOOHHHH! This would be good for season six! Sookie being pregnant? Hmmm, who would the father be?

Andrea on

That is going to be a beautiful child.

Devon on

Do people think they’d actually incorporate her pregnancy in the show? *shakes head*

Anonymous on

look- For all you know, karin knows him and/or one or both of his children’s mothers personally. The way her post was written it sounds like she has insider information. But I could be totally wrong of course! All I’m saying is that it IS possible that some of the posters here actually know a celeb or two! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jillian on

People on here, do know some of the people on this page. You are right Anonymous. Not sure if Karen does, but she might. I tend to not mention those I know or have met, on here or elsewhere, because people go crazy and think I am lying. I have no reason to lie. People typically go crazy more on Facebook and that’s where they spread more lies which makes me crazy.


jessica on

I was thinking the same thing Jillian and Anonymous. There are”regular” people who know celebrities. I went to high school with a few and have lived in L.A. my whole life so I have became friends with a few. I would NEVER share their personal business unless it was a simple and factual comment such as Karen did. You can either believe me, or not. Just saying that hollywood type do associate with us little people ๐Ÿ™‚

Tanya on

Just it become know that they are expecting twins!!!! So happy for them !!! Can’t wait to meet their babies!!!
