The Office's Angela is pregnant, which is highly inappropriate

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2007 4:57PM

While I'm sure her Office alter-ego would find an unwed pregnancy extremely unprofessional, real-life Angela Kinsey and her husband are very excited to be expecting their first child in May, according to Zap2It.com. Assuming the pesky strike ends before the season does, one would assume writers will either have to work the pregnancy into the show or work around it with strategically placed filing cabinets and Angela walking around holding her clipboard constantly.

Of course, the actress is so tiny, as long as she's standing behind a desk, no one would be able to see above her chest anyway. I suspect they'll just hide it, if necessary, but it would add a lot of conflict to the character and show that could be mined for good comic effect, so long as the father is former amour Dwight or current fling Andy, who as far as we know has not yet danced the mattresses with her; for that matter do we know if Dwight did?

"While I'm sure her Office alter-ego would find an unwed pregnancy extremely unprofessional.....but it would add a lot of conflict to the character and show that could be mined for good comic effect, so long as the father is former amour Dwight ..."

The information you have provided about the actual details of Angela's pregnancy in real life is helpful but as to your interpretation of her character on the show thus far, you are dead wrong. Though Angela is a devout Christian with supposed conservative values, she has NEVER been opposed to the idea of having a baby out of wedlock for herself. We know this because of how strictly she held Dwight to the conception contract which was their story arc last season. She has no problem at ALL when it comes to having a child, of doing it alone or as an unwed woman. Everyone knows this about her character because we know she does not hold herself to the same standards as she expects from everyone else. She'd be appalled if anyone else were to cheat on their fiance with someone (from the same office no less) but obviously has no hesitation doing so herself. A lot of the things Angela does differ from what she states she morally adheres to and expects others to do as well. Remember, she is one of the most judgmental people in the office yet I'm sure the ol' Jesus would take issue with that kind of attitude in general.

That should make things interesting.

If you are board with the strike, there is some new DunderMifflin material available. They created GNOME YOURSELF to rival the elf yourself made by their competitor Office Max. Of course, DM's is much funnier.

MY cousin sent me this one with Michael: http://www.gnomeyourself.com/view.aspx?gid=1B6078C4FF8246D9A50CAECDCCE0747E

But you can make one with yourself or any character at www.gnomeyourself.com

I think a great plot line would be to have Angela be pregnant on the show and not be sure who the father is Dwight or Andy. Then have the guys fight over who the father is, while the rest of the office places bets on who it could be. That would be some great TV. I hope the strike is over soon.

I was wondering about this too, did Angela and Dwight have sex? I think yes, because of a few things:

1) She clearly slept over multiple times, and vice versa. She left stuff on his night stand and he left a tooth brush at her house. They both had keys to each other's houses.

2) The whole "cookie" exchange in Michael's Birthday.

3) And finally...in "Drug Testing," Dwight's going around checking what prescription meds everyone is on, and when Angela says "Nothing," his reaction is priceless.

Anyway, that's my theory. And I really need to watch less Office.

Didn't they 'dance the mattresses' on Jim's back porch when he had everyone over?

They'd have to hide her, or write something so that she leaves the office for some time. It would be way too out-of-character for Angela to be pregnant.

Angela and Dwight have had relations although it hasn't been shown or necessarily hinted on camera. I know Dwight has said so and I'm pretty sure she did too.

if they do write into the show can you imagine what the office baby shower will be like?
