Is Andy pregnant in Station 19? What’s in store for Andy and Sullivan in season 5 of the show? As Station 19 fans ramp up speculation over Andy’s pregnancy, we look into the facts behind the storyline and whether Jaina Lee Ortiz is actually pregnant in real life.

Fan theories: Why do fans think Andy’s pregnant in Station 19?

As the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off aired its fourth season finale, we look into why fans have been wondering if Ortiz’s character, Andy Herrera, is pregnant in Station 19.

In a recent episode, Station 19 added fuel to the already spiralling pregnancy rumours when they showed Andy having a bigger appetite than usual. This led fans to believe her big appetite could be more a sign that she’s pregnant.

In a Reddit feed, Station 19 fans have been sharing their theories about Andy’s potential pregnancy.

One Reddit user said: “There were a lot of hints. The lingering shot of Andy taking two pastries. The old couple randomly saying they didn’t have kids. The literal birth at the station. Andy admiring the baby (that’s two new-borns she’s interacted with). Andy and Dean talking about Pru. This show is not subtle.”


Is Andy actually pregnant in the show or is it just rumour?

With so much uncertainty it’s hard to say if the rumours are just rumours or there is some truth to them. But with a rocky on-screen relationship between Andy and Sullivan, fans have mixed feelings on whether a potential pregnancy is the best path for the hopeful mum to be.

Throughout the last few episodes, Andy’s marriage to Robert Sullivan has been fraying, with Andy even revealing they may have gotten married too quick. With concern brewing among fans, one Reddit user said: “A baby would only make things much, much worse. What they need, in my opinion, is a divorce.”

Another user said: “I want Andy to be pregnant but I feel like it’s not the time for her to be. Andy and Robert are still in a rocky place so I think a baby would test their relationship in the highest intensity.”

One thing’s for sure, fans are very invested in the fate of their favourite Station 19 characters.

Is Jaina Lee Ortiz pregnant in real life?

Little is known about Jaina Lee Ortiz’s current relationship status. But what we do know is Ortiz was married to scriptwriter Bradley Marques. 

However, it has been reported that Ortiz and Marques got a quiet divorce several years ago. This comes after no new pictures of the couple appeared since 2017.  

In addition, Marques’s Instagram shows he may now have a new girlfriend after he shared several pictures of him with actress and comedian Courtney Scheuerman.

We think it’s unlikely Ortiz is pregnant in real life.
