It’s safe to say Make It or Break It star Chelsea Hobbs will be steering clear of the balance beam when ABC Family’s gymnastics drama returns this spring.
A rep for the 25-year-old actress confirms exclusively to HollyBaby.com that Chelsea Hobbs is expecting her second child with photographer husband Teren Oddo this spring.
According to a Make It or Break It source, producers learned of Chelsea’s pregnancy during production of the second half the show’s 20-episode second season (slated to premiere in the spring) and tweaked the story accordingly. It’s unclear whether one of those tweaks included making Hobbs’ character, teen Olympian Emily Kmetko, pregnant as well.
Should the show opt to write the pregnancy in? It won’t be the first ABC Family show to tackle such a delicate—yet relevant—issue. The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which hit the airwaves in 2008 and is now one of the network’s most popular programs, tells the story of 15-year-old Amy, a good student who becomes pregnant the first time she has sex.
Hobbs and Oddo, who have been married since 2004, already have a young daughter named Wylie.
Stay tuned to see whether Hobbs’ character Emily starts sporting a baby bump…
