‘How I Met Your Mother’ served up another one of its shocking twists during the March 10 episode — but this one was about another mother all together. Can you believe Lily is pregnant with baby #2?!
You know all those drinks Lily (Alyson Hannigan) has been knocking back during the episodes leading up to Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) wedding? Well, apparently they were non-alcoholic because Lily has been pregnant with her second child all along! Looks like little Marvin Eriksen is going to be a big brother!
‘How I Met Your Mother’ New Baby — Marshall & Lily Expecting Second Child
The final season of How I Met Your Mother has been full of curve balls, and the latest episode, “Daisy”, was no exception! Lily has been in a mood for the majority of the wedding weekend, so it was easy for us to believe Ted’s hunch that she had taken up smoking cigarettes to calm her nerves. And that would explain why she’s been mysteriously sneaking off all season — to the fire escape of the apartment, the bathroom of the train, and tonight, during her blow-out fight with Marshall.
Halfway through the episode, Ted goes on a hunt for Lily’s leftover cigarette butts (he’s such a good friend). He makes the shocking discovery that Lily’s with child when he finds her positive pregnancy test in a potted daisy plant!
‘How I Met Your Mother’ — Marshall & Lily Have Their 2nd Baby In Italy
When Lily breaks the good news to Marshall, he decides that the entire family should go to Rome — even if it means their daughter will be born there. He’s willing to give up his dream job as a judge to make Lily’s dreams come true — further proof that he is the perfect husband!
When the episode flashes forward a year, Marshall, Lily, Marvin, baby Daisy (named after the potted pregnancy test plant, of course!) and Lily’s wacky dad and Marshall’s equally wacky mom are in Italy. They’re all one big happy, Italian-speaking family — how sweet!
