Fans of Grey’s Anatomy have been dreaming that one of TV’s hottest couples, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey, aka McDreamy) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) would finally adopt a baby.
Meredith has been having fertility treatments that are seriously impacting her health -- they made her temporarily blind. All this after a heartbreaking miscarriage in the totally stressful Season 6 finale.
The leaked photos from the next-to-last episode of this season, set to air May 12 on ABC, sure seem to hint at a big event in the lives of the recently-wed (by Post-It, but still) MerDer.
TV Fanatic published photos where Meredith is talking to Derek. He’s holding an adorable baby; she’s clutching a copy of Baby’s First Year. They both look alternately happy and shell-shocked, emotions familiar to any new parent -- no matter what method we took to parenthood!
The fan site Meredith and Derek Online (I kid you not) notes that executive producer and creator Shonda Rhimes hinted, via Entertainment Weekly, at a big surprise for Meredith in this episode.
What do you think? Will we be seeing a new baby on Grey’s Anatomy?
