The Walking Dead Season 6: Maggie Is Pregnant With Glenn’s Baby!
After quite a few grim episodes of The Walking Dead, we finally got some great news in Season 6, Episode 5: “Now”; Maggie Greene, played by Lauren Cohan, is pregnant with Glenn Rhee’s baby!
Steven Yeun’s character has been MIA since he fell off a dumpster and into a horde of walkers in Episode 3, “Thank You,” but now we know even if the former pizza delivery guy didn’t survive that mess (we still think he did), he’ll live on in his unborn child, assuming all goes well when Maggie welcomes the little one in a few months.
Maggie tearfully revealed the bittersweet news to Aaron in the sewers when she believed Glenn was dead,

After Glenn’s “death” TWD showrunner Scott Gimple said, in part, “In some way, we will see Glenn, some version of Glenn or parts Glenn again, either in flashback, or current story, to help complete the story.” This baby certainly seems to support that statement.
As The Walking Dead comic book readers know, Glenn and Maggie have a child in that medium as well — a son named Hershel, who of course inherited his moniker from Maggie’s dearly departed dad.

While this baby news is a pleasant surprise, there have been some hints that Mags has a bun in the oven. In the Season 6 premiere, for example, Glenn urged Maggie to stay behind at Alexandria with Deanna to comfort her after the deaths of her husband and son.
Maggie also cryptically told him: "This is not the only reason."
To which Glenn replied, "Yeah, it isn't.”

We love that Judith will soon have a little playmate, and now we just have to cross our fingers and hope Glenn lives to see his child come into the world. Good thing we’ll learn his fate soon enough!
