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

"Glee" star Jane Lynch arrives at the Critics' Choice Television Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on June 20, 2011

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.
