Zac and I were on our way to the Neighbors premier. We had starred in another movie together and were “dating”. We werent really dating it was just a publicity stunt.
While we were walking on the red carpet we stopped to answer a few questions. All at once we were bombarded with questions.
“Are you two getting married!?”
“marriage? Whens the wedding?’
"Is it true you’re 3 months pregnant?”
“What are you going to name the kid? How many do you want?”
Zac was the one to speak up, i was in too much shock. “None of that is true. We aren;t getting married and definitely arent having a child together!”
We answered a few good questions and took pictures then went inside for the movie. Instead of watching it we talked. Even though we were both stars of a movie together we never got to really know each other.
“wow, (y/n), you’re actually really cool.” He said with a fond smile.
“Geeze dont sound to surprised!” I laughed.
“No, I just meant, i could see us really hanging out. Not as an act…. Say, you wanna come back to my place after the party? Or before. It doesnt matter to me.” “Sure Zac, When ever you wanna go.”
1. TV shows only. There are very few movie sightings, and my favorite is “Junior.” It’s the movie that made me fall in love with Emma Thompson.
2. English speaking finds only. I was afraid some key points might be lost in translation, and most foreign finds don’t even have subtitles. This does not limit selections to American sightings.
10. “The Neighbors” Ep 44: “There Goes the Neighbors’ Hood.”
-After two seasons of hinting at the fact the male aliens get pregnant, this ABC series finally pulls through. The main male alien, Larry Bird, finds himself pregnant with his third child in the midst of his family and the rest of the Zabvronian colony’s plans to leave earth. Unlike most of the sightings on this list, I was invested in the show before I saw this episode, so I had a longer time to connect with these characters. I really like this episode for the way it plays the mpreg plot line (for the most part) straight. I’ve always preferred drama to humor with mpreg. There are a few jokes here and there, but this episode has a lot of heart. The “back bump” thing was a little strange to say the least, but male pregnancy was still a plot device I’d been waiting for. It was a solid season finale that left me wanting a 3rd season. Sadly the show was canceled, but I’m glad this show ended on the note that it did.
9. “American Dad!” Ep 7: “Deacon Stan, Jesus Man.”
-This episode was played mostly for laughs, but always left me wanting more. I’d never really thought Seth MacFarlane could pull off an mpreg plotline, but it was a genuinely interesting episode. This episode gets bonus credit for getting me invested in the series, and Steve Smith remains my favorite character on the show. It was actually a pretty inventive idea as well. I always wanted a follow up episode, but as is, it still remains one of my favorite episodes of the series.
8. “Superjail” Ep 18: “The Budding of the Warbuxx.”
-I knew nothing about this series when I watched this, and I found it to be very…trippy. I thought it was very bizarre, but interesting nonetheless. The animation is colorful and fast paced, and I was reminded of a 70s music video. It’s also one of the only sightings where I was actually interested in the subplots. They were just as interesting as the mpreg storyline, and I found the episode on a whole to be short and satisfying, with a good balance of melodrama and humor. While I’m not a fan of the show on a whole, this episode was quite a ride.
7. “The Fairly Odd Parents” Ep 82/83: “Fairly Odd Baby.”
-Despite the fact that I wholly believe this episode started the downhill spiral of the rest of the series, it was still one of the first mpreg sightings I found outside of the internet. And despite the fact that seeing Cosmo pregnant is…childhood changing, I really do like this two-parter. It’s pretty funny, but has some of those touching moments between Cosmo and Wanda I wanted to see as well. I must admit I’ve only watched the full, hour long episode only once. I tend to stop watching after the baby is born, as I find the rest of the plotline kind of bland. I love this series, and though it’s not my favorite episode, it’s still a pretty good one.
6. “Futurama” Ep 55: “Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch.”
-This episode alone started my love for this show, and is one of the first sightings recommended to me when I found more like minded artists. Though I don’t love Amy as a character, and that hasn’t changed as I’ve gotten more invested in the series, it was still a great episode. It made me want Kif to be more of a main character in the series. Much like the “American Dad!” sighting, I was really hoping for a follow up episode. There’s another “Futurama” sighting in which Bender ferments beer inside himself, but despite the pregnancy allusions, there wasn’t really a baby, so I decided not to put it on the list. “Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch” still remains one of my favorite episodes of the series.
5. “Round the Twist” Ep 27: “The Big Burp.”
-This was a sighting that I knew about, but didn’t even see until 2 years later. It’s from Australia, and it was very hard to find online. I finally found it on the Mpreg Central site and it quickly became one of my favorites. I’ve never seen another episode from the series, but this one was enough for me. The kid actors are surprisingly good, and this is one of the only plotlines I’ve seen where the girlfriend is referred to as the “father” of the child. Even though it’s pretty low budget in ways of special effects, it’s not a bad episode. I don’t really care about the rest of the series, but the writers wrote some good mpreg.
4. “My Hero” Ep 32: “The Family Way.”
-Another one that really surprised me. This show is like a British version of “Mork and Mindy,” only the husband is an alien AND a superhero. I haven’t seen much of the rest of the series, but this episode was pretty funny. This show has an obviously low budget, but they still made the pregnancy look very real. The couple is very cute, and the pregnancy is a surrogacy, or as the show said “it’s like jury duty.” It’s worth mention that the baby turned out to be a baby gorilla. Odd, but also a fun episode. The pregnant man is also kind of cute, which is a bonus. Check it out if you haven’t already.
3. “Dilbert” Eps 13 & 14: “The Pregnancy” & “The Delivery.”
-The show definitely strays from the plots of the original comic, and these episodes proved it. I find it kind of funny that they’re titled the way they are, because the first one is much more about Dilbert becoming more feminine, while the second episode focuses more on his pregnancy. The delivery itself only lasts about two minutes. Dilbert is a great character, and these episodes analyze the struggles of a working parent-to-be. The baby is a mix of about 7 different parents (a cow, aliens, hillbillies, a robot, and so on) and ends up looking adorable despite the strange combinations. The baby doesn’t end up being a part of the show, but that’s probably a better choice writing wise. It’s funny, it’s sincere, and it even has a few heartwarming points. I loved these so much I bought them for my iPad and never regretted it.
2. “Fish Hooks” Mr. Baldwin.
-If you know me, you knew he’d be on this list somewhere. This was a sighting that didn’t last one episode, but lasted two and a half seasons. As far as I know, it’s the longest running American mpreg plotline to date. And it’s pretty well done for a kids cartoon! The pregnancy itself, as well as most of Baldwin’s background, is completely shrouded in mystery. I think this makes him more interesting, and the fact that it is still for kids, I knew they’d never reveal the biological mother. He’s almost a three dimensional character, and he’s definitely more than just a lousy teacher and a running gag. He has emotions, desires, and the chemistry between him and Ms. Lips is just adorable. I always wanted more of their relationship. I watched the entire series just for this character, and his plotline definitely exceeded my expectations.
1. “Alien Nation” Ep 17: “Real Men.”
-This sighting has everything I could ever want in an mpreg plotline. Writing that takes itself seriously, a dramatic birth, great special effects and makeup, a sympathetic character, and the analyzing of gender roles. Not only by what women have to endure, but also the pressure of being a “man” and the effects of masculinity. I love talking about gender roles, which is why “Junior” is my favorite mpreg movie. We also see a character who’s very familiar with the process of his pregnancy, it being his third child instead of his first. This is also an alien pregnancy, leaving the writers room to stretch what can happen in this gestation. It’s very similar to how seahorses reproduce, and it’s just fascinating. The reason this one is my favorite is more than good acting, writing, and good effects, this episode is simply ahead of its time. Listen to the conversation at 9:32 and you’ll know what I mean.

“Quantum Leap” Ep 43: “8 ½ Months”
- I decided not to put this one on the list because, even though I do love this episode, it’s not technically mpreg. He’s a man, but a man inside a pregnant woman’s body. It’s complicated, and you can read up on the show and episode for a better description. I still love this episode and I watch it often (the acting is superb), but I just couldn’t count this one.
