Jane Lynch Talks Glee Pregnancy: ‘I Would Rather Not Give Birth’ On TV

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Sue Sylvester is pregnant with her first child on “Glee,” and Jane Lynch – who plays the acid-tongued cheer coach on the FOX hit – is hoping she won’t have to film a labor and delivery scene.
“I think what’s going to happen is when we come back for next the season, either I will be in the stirrups having the baby, or I will have had the baby,” the Emmy Award-winning actress told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover of Sue Sylvester’s soon-to-arrive spawn, during an interview on Thursday’s Access Hollywood Live. “So, I think we’re going to miss the big pregnancy.”
The actress — who will host act as host at the Fifi Awards in New York City on Monday — is personally pulling for the latter option, as she told Billy and Kit the idea of screaming with contractions in a birthing scene is less than appealing.
“I would rather not give birth on television, but if they write me a good enough scene, I will,” she said with a laugh.
As for who fathered Sue’s bundle of joy (the baby daddy has remained a point of mystery thus far), Jane said no one knows his identity — including “Glee” showrunner Ryan Murphy.
“I don’t know [who the father is]. I asked Ryan and he said, ‘I haven’t decided yet,’” she said. “So, we don’t even know!”
Catch the Season 3 finale of “Glee” – Tuesday at 9/8c on FOX.
