Alyson Hannigan, who portrays Lily on How I Met Your Mother, is pregnant with her second child. Fortunately for the actress she won’t have to hide the baby bump. As of season 7 Marshall and Lilly are expecting a baby boy. The storyline was written before Hannigan’s announcement.
Hannigan’s first pregnancy was comically hidden on How I Met Your Mother with the placement of awkward objects. This was a form of meta humor as it was well-know that she was pregnant in real life. It was even used as a gag on the show after Lily had participated in a hot dog eating contest. Fortunately this time around the expecting mother won’t have to worry about hiding the fact from the audience.
Alyson Hannigan is the wife of Alexis Denisof. The two met before filming of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but began dating after his arrival on the show. They were married in 2003. their first child, Satyana Marie Denisof, was born in 2009.
Fans of Hannigan and How I Med Your Mother will be excited to know she is reuniting with the cast of American Pie. The new film titled, American Reunion, will feature all the original actors from the 1999 movie. The new teaser is a nostalgic throwback to American Pie’s theatrical poster. The only difference is that the gang is much older, and the flute has been replaced by a baby bottle.
Like many shows How I Met Your Mother is on a midseason hiatus. The last episode was a dark and touching affair. Robin’s pregnancy turns out to be a false alarm, but she learns from her doctor that she is infertile. The show will pick up January 2nd with a post New Years theme.
