Brooke & Julian’s surrogate dishes on the double-labor drama! Do you think Chloe will keep the baby?
The babies are almost here! Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) and Chloe (Leven Rambin) will both go into labor on the April 19 episode of One Tree Hill, and Leven tells HollywoodLife.com exactly what to expect from Chloe’s big day. “She’s very scared and she doesn’t want anything to go wrong,” Leven tells us exclusively. “But suddenly she’s faced with the reality of the situation. Once she has the baby, that maternal instinct kicks in that she didn’t think she had. It’s heartbreaking.”
“Chloe isn’t ready,” Leven admits. “She knows she isn’t ready, but she’s been denying any feelings of attachment in order to make Brooke and Julian happy. She pushed her own feelings down, but once she gives birth, there’s a flood of oppressed emotions that come to the surface. She has to be strong for herself, her baby and for Brooke and Julian.
Even though this is the second time Leven’s sported a baby belly on-screen — she played Mark’s (Eric Dane) pregnant daughter on Grey’s Anatomy — she says there’s always something new to learn about playing pregnant. She tells us she had some help this time around from a very special on-set tutor, Bethany Joy Galeotti!
“Joy was telling me, when I was walking, that it looked ‘too easy,'” Leven admits. “She was like, ‘You need to struggle more with the walk, and waddle more to make it look real.’ When I was jumping off the counter, she was like, ‘Girl, do you think I could do that? It’s hard enough for me to sit down, let alone hop on and off a counter.'”
