List of the most anticipated new babies in TV history. These are the babies audiences couldn’t wait to see and coo over. This list only includes babies who were born during a series’ run, not before; the list includes those moms who announced their pregnancy after the show started. Vote up the most exciting TV babies, the ones whose births you wouldn’t have missed.

 Baby and pregnancy plot lines are written into TV series for several reasons. Sometimes an exciting TV birth is used as a way to resolve or encourage a dramatic situation; other times a new TV baby is used to deepen the audience’s understanding of the other characters. No matter for what reason a new baby is written into a TV show, they can become almost exciting as a real life birth. The best new TV babies become a topic of conversation with friends and even make headlines. (Remember the furor surrounding Murphy Brown’s single-mother pregnancy and Dan Quayle’s thoughts on such an ‘irresponsible’ act?)

 Of course, new babies on television shows are sometimes written in because a female character has become pregnant. These story lines can still create exciting TV births, however. One of the most highly anticipated babies in TV history, in fact, was a real-life pregnancy; Lucille Ball was indeed pregnant with her second child during the time leading up to Little Ricky’s birth on “I Love Lucy.” Because of the censors, they never called her pregnant, even though audiences were excitedly waiting for this new TV baby. Instead, she was referred to as ‘expecting.’

 This list includes the best new babies in TV history, whether born after a dramatic pregnancy or a funny one. Vote up the most highly anticipated TV babies.
