Grey’s Anatomy star Kelly McCreary and her director husband Pete Chatmon, are expecting their first child.
Kelly McCreary, who plays Dr. Maggie Pierce in ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, revealed exclusively to PEOPLE that she’s expecting her first child with her husband Pete Chatmon, also sharing photos of the couple showing the positive pregnancy test on Instagram to celebrate with her fans.
The couple — who met on the set of Grey’s Anatomy and married in 2019 — knew they wanted to start a family but both decided that now was the perfect time. However, McCreary admits she was actually surprised when her Clearblue digital pregnancy test revealed she was going to be a mom.
“I actually screamed in shock when I saw pregnant. I mean, I just wasn’t expecting it. I had really been mentally and emotionally preparing myself for the possibility that it might take us some time to conceive. So, I was genuinely shocked. You know, on the Clearblue test, it spells out very clearly: pregnant. Like, make no mistake, you are PREGNANT,”Kelly McCreary
Grey’s Anatomy star describes her experience conceiving and being pregnant as “really empowering and really grounding.”
Kelly McCreary admits that it was her husband who initially wanted to start a family more than she did. Sh “took some persuading” because of the career milestones she wanted to hit before motherhood and she calls her husband the “best” at supporting her as they both go through this new time in their lives together.
“I’m very lucky to have a partner who is just rah, rah, eager for this child to come into our life and find out all of the ways that being parents will disrupt and challenge everything that we have planned. But because we are doing it together, we will be able to roll with it. And because this child is so desired and so loved, whatever happens will be the right thing, and we’ll make it work.”Kelly McCreary
Is there gonna be a pregnancy coming for Maggie, too?
One question that has now started to haunt the minds of fans is the fact that in the next season of Grey’s Anatomy there will be a pregnancy coming for Maggie, taking advantage of the current situation of the actress.
