Grey’s Anatomy’s Kelly McCreary Expecting First Child
Kelly McCreary reveals she is expecting her first child with husband, Pete Chatmon.
The Grey’s Anatomy actress shared the news with People, along with some pictures of the positive test.
“We are really excited to share that my husband and I are expecting our first little one.” Announced McCreary. “I actually screamed in shock when I saw pregnant. I mean, I just wasn’t expecting it.”
She adds, “I had really been mentally and emotionally preparing myself for the possibility that it might take us some time to conceive. So, I was genuinely shocked. You know, on the Clearblue test, it spells out very clearly: pregnant. Like, make no mistake, you are PREGNANT.”
The 39-year-old admitted that she “took some persuading” from husband, Chatmon, to make the leap into motherhood.
“I’m very lucky to have a partner who is just, rah, rah, eager for this child to come into our life and find out all of the ways that being parents will disrupt and challenge everything that we have planned.” She said. “But because we are doing it together, we will be able to roll with it. And because this child is so desired and so loved, whatever happens will be the right thing and we’ll make it work.”
McCreary is currently working on the 18th season of Grey’s Anatomy and says that her co-stars, Caterina Scorsone, Chandra Wilson and Ellen Pompeo have been helping her prepare.
“They’re tremendously helpful, supportive resources. I really couldn’t be in a better workplace environment to have this experience. It’s such a parent-friendly and pregnant person-friendly environment.”
