Yes, kids — someone’s getting a bun in the oven. But we don’t know who it is, so it’s time to play a little game I like to call First Response!
Pregnancies, like school dances, never end well in Beverly Hills. So when TVLine reported that one of 90210‘s leading ladies is going to be ‘with child’ by season’s end, my drama-meter went bananas! Unless Tabitha (Jessica Walter) makes a surprise return to announce she’s found a way to get pregnant in her twilight years, I see six possible candidates for fertilization. Let’s see if we can’t birth a few theories…
My first instinct is to pin the baby on Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord.) Her relationship with Max (Josh Zuckerman) is really heating up, and if the previews for April 18’s spring break episode are any indication, they’re about to do LOTS of naughty bedroom hugging. My only question is: Did Kelly Taylor ever get pregnant on the original Beverly Hills, 90210? If not, then it couldn’t possibly be Naomi, since her character literally follows in Kelly’s every. single. footstep.
Candidate #2 is Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes), who has two very promising attributes for teen motherhood: She’s fertile and she’s a train wreck. We know’s she’s heading for a “ledge,” and getting pregnant for the SECOND time in high school might just send her over the edge. But who the hell would be the daddy? (My guess: Probably NOT Teddy.)
The remaining candidates are, more or less, a crap-shoot: Annie (Shenae Grimes), Ivy (Gillian Zinser), Silver (Jessica Stroup) and even Deb (Lori Loughlin) all have an equal shot at filling their uterus with something adorable.
