I Want Dan To Be The Father Of Blair's Baby On 'Gossip Girl!'

Tue, September 27, 2011 2:40pm EDT by 107 Comments

Call me a sucker for a good twist, but I think a ‘Dair’ baby is exactly what this show needs!

After last night’s game-changing season premiere, Gossip Girl fans worldwide are playing a feverish game of Pin the Tail on the Baby Daddy. But while most seem certain that Blair (Leighton Meester) is either carrying the spawn of Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) or the royal seed of Prince Louis (Hugo Becker), allow me to propose a third potential baby planter — Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley)!

Not only would a “Dair” baby throw a total wrench in the Upper East Side, giving this show its most mind-blowing twist ever, but it would also reinforce my firm belief that Dan and Blair’s two worlds can successfully come together as one. Of course, it’s also possible I watched The Little Mermaid one too many times as a kid. (If a mer-person and a man-person can make a baby, anyone can, damn it!)

So how would such a pregnancy be possible, you ask? After all, was it not Chuck Bass we saw porking Blair Waldorf on last season’s (pun intended) climactic finale? Of course it was — but that’s where the magic of “flashbacks” comes in. Wouldn’t it be a killer twist if, later on this season, we learn that Chuck wasn’t the only guy Blair slept with?

Let’s be honest: if a girl is willing to stoop so low as to cheat on her prince fiancé with a baby raccoon like Chuck Bass, I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to find out she also slept with Dan.

OK, that officially ends my rant for the day and now it’s your turn to direct your crazy at me. Who do you think knocked up Blair Waldorf — and more importantly, who do you hope knocked up Blair Waldorf?

It is so Dan. Everyone assumes it is Chuck and that pretty much cinches that it is Dan. Also Dan made a reference to his father last night about the end of the story and if it really happened or was creative license.. meaning a sex. Meaning more might have happened then we were lead to believe between Dan and Blair.

Hate to break it to you folks. But it will be Dan’s baby which will send Chuck into a another tail spin and cause a scandal on the show.

Its Baby Bass-Waldorf. Dan is the lamest character ever he even made Blair boring… I want my Chuck&Blair back ASAP.

I feel like this is so gendered. Every guy I know identifies with Dan and thus wants Dair. And now this trend even extends to the media!

I really hope they don’t have Blair sleeping with three different men in a single month. That seems really out of character for her.

That’s really interesting about the “genered” thing. I guess I never thought about it before, but I doo identify with Dan more than any of the other guys.

LOL at Chair fans trying to be snarky. Snarky only works when you’re self-aware, js.

It will probably be forever until we find out for sure, but it will be Chuck’s. I’m sure of that.

ANDY SWIFT I adore you for this risky way of thinking but I will kill someone if it’s not a Chair baby. Not that it will ever be born but how awesome would it be if it came out and was all “Hi. I’m Baby Bass.”

And Andy, Dair fans always lose polls, so there answer to everything is that Chair fans cheat.

Have a great day!

Oh, and Andy, don’t believe the poll… Chairios literally gather on boards to come up with ways to cheat on them; as I always say, they act just like their ~master~ would.

Popular does not equal quality, and we all know Dair beats Chair easily at it… And you cheat, always, like Chuck would. Accept that.

Excuses, Excuses.

Why does Chuck always trend when GG is on? Dan never trends. Are you suggesting we cheated there too?

Are you also suggesting that Dair fans are incapable of “cheating?” Just face we win all the polls because there are more Chair fans than Dair fans.

Would love to see it be Dan’s baby, but he’s already allegedly impregnated an Upper Eastsider (ahemm Gorgina?). I predict they will let us Chair fans down, and it will be Louis’ baby.

You mean you like the fact that the Chair fanbase is organized and aggressive to an insane and embarrassing level?

wish there was no baby tbh. Blair is only 20 and none of the characters on the show are ready to be any kind of parent.

Couldn’t agree more. (These kids are all super rich, and birth control is NOT that expensive.)

LOL it would be the best twist ever, but alas, these are Gossip Girl writers we’re talking about. The most obvious answer is the right answer, duh. So unfortunately, the baby will be half-Waldorf, half baby racoon!

No it would not be a great plot twist at all. In fact, it would be the biggest load of crap ever. Kind of like this article.

It’s a baby bass!

Oh Andy, one could only hope!

TBH, I wish Blair to abort IF she is pregnant, because she’s DARN TWENTY! BUT… I think it’s insane for her to be planning a wedding, too… I guess her having a baby and it being Dan’s would be better than Chuck’s, but it’s not like kids in the UES have their parents married happily, so…

The writers need to stop everything and Dare to Dair, BEST THING ON THE SHOW!

YES! Do they have “Dare to Dair” t-shirts yet? Because I might be in the market for one.
