Guess which The Vampire Diaries cast member is pregnant! Candice Accola announced via Instagram that she is pregnant, and she and her husband Joe King are expecting their first baby together. Accola has been a central character on The CW’s vampire drama since Season 1, and plays the sometimes nauseatingly bubbly blond vampire Caroline – who was recently paired up with Stefan Salvatore.
On Monday August 31, Candice posted a photo on Instagram revealing her baby bump. In the photo Candice is posing with her husband, Fray guitarist Joe King and his two daughters from a previous marriage. The family is decked out in white t-shirts that they hand-painted, and Joe and the two girls are pointing at Candice’s belly – which has the words “Baby” scribbled on it. Joe’s hand-painted shirt featured the word “Super Dad.”
Accola captioned the cute baby announcement, “Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoInMyBelly.” Joe also took to his own Instagram account to announce the baby news and the proud father to be gushed, “So proud to welcome this new life into the world with my beautiful wife and daughters. I truly am a lucky man & dad.”
Now, let the speculation begin. Does this mean that there could be a vampire baby in Stefan and Caroline’s future? It’s not unusual for the writers of TV shows to work baby bumps in to upcoming storylines, and possibly even a spot on the cast for the baby-to-be. There haven’t been too many pregnancies in Mystic Falls since The Vampire Diaries began its lengthy run, so maybe it’s time to extend the Salvatore Family bloodline.
