How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan announced her pregnancy last month by playfully tweeting the baby news, “Yes, I am pregnant! This time it is NOT a food baby. We are beyond happy!”, coylyreferringto earlier denials that saw her insisting that her “bump” was due to packing on the pounds and PMS.
While Alyson and her husband, fellow Joss Whedon alum Alexis Denisof, already have 2 1/2-year-old Satyana keeping them busy, her HIMYM character, Lily, is expecting her first and the new addition to the family promises to bring some exciting changes for the fictional couple of Lily and Marshall.
One thing is for sure, the serendipitous timing of the two pregnancies means that there will be no playing hide-and-seek with her baby belly this time around and fans of the show can look forward to seeing both Alyson and Lily from the neck down.
As to whether or not Alyson and Alexis are looking forward to any changes, say for instance having another man around the house, they don’t yet know the new baby’s gender. Alyson tweeted on Christmas Eve, “All I want for Xmas is to find out the gender of the baby in my belly!” and added that she doesn’t really have a preference of boy or girl.
We wonder if Alexis feels quite the same way about the possibility of being the lone man in a house full of three women but if her daughters take after her, we’re sure that a house is full of fun and down-to-earth cheeriness makes the possibility far less daunting than it would be otherwise.
