Melissa Benoist & Christopher Wood Announce Pregnancy News
We love when good things happen to good people. Supergirl star Melissa Benoist and Christopher Wood, who met on the set of The CW show, got married in September 2019 and now it turns out they’re growing their family by one! You read that right: Melissa Benoist is pregnant! That will make these cuties a family of five with their fur babies, Farley and Drift.
The couple announced the news in the cuy-utest way, showing Melissa cradling a fake baby bump on Chris’s body. “The photo is a joke but the news is real…!!!” Chris captioned the photo. The next image showed Melissa, Christopher, Farley, and Drift with a little blue shirt. Does this mean they’re having a boy? They’re *all* dressed in blue… so, maybe.
Melissa shared the same two photos (in a different order), writing, “A non-canine child is coming to our family very soon!!! ??? @christophrwood has always been an old dad by nature but now he’s going to be a real one!”
Yes, we’re crying.
Melissa Benoist made headlines in the end of 2018 after she came forward with her experience being a survivor of intimate-partner violence at the hands of her ex, most likely ex-husband Blake Jenner. Christopher was supportive AF and, though we loved the couple before, the way they seem to really stand up for one another just makes us even bigger fans. Besides the doggos, this will be both Christopher and Melissa’s first child. Does this mean Kara Danvers is going to be getting knocked up soon? We’re *very* interested to see how Supergirl handles their main character’s pregnancy!
