Xena is pregnant

thm_VLL.jpg (12613 bytes)In LA the stork is working overtime. In July Rob Estes and Josie Bissett expect a baby and three months later it's Lucy Lawless' turn.

Lucy Lawless and her husband Rob Tapert, producer of 'Xena: Warrior Princess', really did their math well: the baby's due in October, during the longest break in the series. It won't hinder the taping of the show.

When asked if she would stop if she would become pregnant Lucy answered at the beginning of this year: "I don't know. As long as I'm healthy we could hide the pregnancy by putting Xena behind bushes or in a river, only showing her from the neck up. That's not that different from actresses that have to stand behind refridgerator doors and chamber plants. No one thinks that's weird."

There's also the possibility of making Xena pregnant. "That it hasn't been done before doesn't mean that it's impossible. I can already see it: Xena racing through the countryside with a baby-carriage."

Lucy knows what she's talking about: she already has a 10-year-old daughter (Daisy) from her first marriage with Garth Lawless.
