Congratulations to Alaina Huffman and her family!
The Stargate Universe actress gave birth to a baby girl today, Charley-Jane. In true twenty-first century social networking fashion, she even Twittered the event.
“10 cm, let’s go! Just waiting for the doctor to arrive and I’ll have myself a lil’ baby!” she told fans via Twitter. Her post-birth tweet reported: “Awww, that was nice! Baby is healthy and lovely! Welcome My baby girl, Charley-Jane.“
The actress, who plays Lt. Tamara Johansen on the new Syfy series, is married with two other children.
As previously reported, we don’t know yet if the actress’s pregnancy will result in a parallel storyline for T.J. near the end of SGU‘s first season, or if the producers decided to write and shoot around it. Filming wrapped in October, when Huffman was about seven and a half months pregnant.
“You have to watch,” Huffman told SCI FI PI in an interview following her announcement. “I think every actor on the Stargate franchise has had one or more kids. [The writers] know what they are doing, and they know how to deal with it. I can’t give away spoilers whether we are or are not going to entertain that possibility. You’ve just got to keep watching!”
Stargate Universe returns with new episodes in April. Should the show be picked up for a second year, filming is expected to commence in late February or early March.
