"The Walking Dead" actress Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara Chambler on AMC's "The Walking Dead", is expecting her first child with boyfriend Brick Stowell.
Masterson announced the news via Instagram by sharing a picture of her cradling her baby bump that she captioned, "Guess what… @brickstowell."
While fans are clearly excited to see her embracing motherhood, some are worried about what this means for her "The Walking Dead" character Tara. Some believe Tara would be killed off so that Masterson could enjoy her pregnancy.
Writing in a pregnancy for her character would be a difficult task as Tara is a lesbian in the series.
But chances are that Masterson will take a leaf out of Sonequa Martin-Green's book and continue to play the character by concealing her bump behind thick layers of clothes.
Martin-Green was pregnant throughout the filming of season 5 of the zombie drama and she hid behind layers of clothing and her large gun so that her pregnancy wouldn't hamper the show.
"I'm really blessed to have a great pregnancy. I'm not swollen or blown up anywhere else. I'm very grateful for that. It's helped hide the whole thing, because it's really just my stomach we have to deal with," she told Entertainment Weekly.
"For the longest time, just the layers that I'm wearing would hide the whole thing. And my gun is really big, so that helps too. So it's been okay, and now at this point it's about just doing good right angles and not turning to a full profile. As long as I'm face-on, there's a trick of the camera—you can't quite see it," she added.
"The Walking Dead" will return to AMC in October, and speculations are rife that Glenn wouldn't last long in the series.
During a panel discussion at Comic-Con 2015, some of the cast members were asked who they would like to bring back on the show, and Norman Reedus created a buzz when he replied "Glenn."
Glenn is still alive in the television series, and Reedus' slip has set tongues wagging about Negan, the leader of Saviors, being introduced in season 6. In Robert Kirkman's comic book series, which is the source material for the television show, Glenn gets killed by Negan, who uses his baseball bat to beat Glenn to death.
