Chandra Wilson has played Miranda Bailey on the ABC drama Grey's Anatomy for almost 20 years now. We have had seasons where we hated Bailey and many where we loved her.
Fans hate Bailey from Season 17 for firing four of our favorite characters from Gray-Sloan Memorial Hospital. That was until we found out that she is pregnant. Now fans are dying to know if Wilson also expects in reality. Read on to get the scoop on Bailey's life off-screen. WARNING Season 17 SPOILERS!
How did the producers of Gray's Anatomy reveal Bailey's pregnancy?
In episode four of season 17, Bailey is on the war track. She catches fire on the article that Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo) spoke poorly about Gray-Sloan Memorial Hospital. Bailey takes his anger out on everyone.
Jo Wilson notices Bailey's rage and asks if her heart disease is working. Bailey admits that she seems very stressed and agrees to get checked out. Fortunately, her heart is healthy.
Just as Bailey screams at Meredith hormonally to get out of his office, Maggie enters. We finally see why Bailey has been in such an incredible mood this season. She's pregnant too! If you don't remember, Amelia is also pregnant.
Wilson was pregnant in real life in & # 39; Gray & # 39; s Anatomy & # 39; season 2
Wilson's third child, Michael, was born in 2005 during the filming of Grey's Anatomy. For the second season, Shonda Rhimes wanted to focus on what happened in Bailey's personal life. Since Wilson was pregnant they just went with it.
Wilson is not married but has been in a relationship for 31 years. She and her longtime partner have three children together. Wilson's oldest daughter, Sarina is now 26 years old. Wilson returned to acting just five days after Sarina was born.
Wilson's second daughter, Joylin was born in 1998. Wilson worked evenings and weekends while her two daughters slept so she would not miss any time with them. She prepared presentations for Deutsche Bank from 1996 to 2004.
Can "Grey's Anatomy" star Wilson be pregnant in real life during Season 17?
Since Rhimes has worked Wilson's pregnancy into the history of Grey's Anatomy before, she might do it again.
However, it sounds like Bailey may not want to combine his work with family life so closely again. In an interview with Working Mother from 2007, Wilson explained: “Since I was breastfeeding, I took him to the set, where he spent most of his time in the trailer napping or playing with a babysitter. I tried to be with him whenever I could, but some days I would have to pump so we could move on with production. "
Her child is currently 26, 21 and 14, so it would be a significant age gap since she had her third child. However, we see families starting over with new children all the time.
Wilson doesn't have an Instagram or Twitter account right now. She keeps her children away from the media in the limelight and her personal life. No one has confirmed right now that she is or is not pregnant in real life.
We have to wait and see if she announces an off-screen pregnancy. Meanwhile, we can see Bailey's pregnancy being played on Thursday nights on ABC at Gray's Anatomy at 8pm Eastern.
