Robin from How I Met Your Mother is pregnant???

Man, I've finally sorted through all of my confusion (how embarrassing ... ) about how Lily and Marshall on How I Met Your Mother actually aren't pregnant at all; rather, actress Alyson Hannigan is expecting in real life with her husband, Alexis Denisof of Buffy and Angel fame.
And now, this news comes across my screen? How am I to believe that the writers of How I Met Your Mother actually thought it was a good idea for Lily and Robin to be pregnant at the same time? Nevertheless, it's true, because People Magazine is reporting that Robin is pregnant.
So what's the deal? Is it Barney's baby? Now there's a real twist, and it was all foreshadowed in "Not a Father's Day" with Robin and Barney being so sweet on the sock.... What's that, you say? Robin isn't pregnant? You say Cobie Smulders, the actress who plays Robin, is expecting? I'm sure I can figure this out ...
So Lily isn't pregnant, but Alyson is. And Robin isn't pregnant, but Cobie is. Although Robin might be pregnant, we don't know yet. And even though Lily and Marshall decided they weren't ready to have a baby yet, stranger things have happened.
I guess we really don't know much, do we? I suppose all we can do is offer a hearty congratulations to Cobie (and again to her castmate, Alyson) and wait and see what the writers of How I Met Your Mother have in store for us. Since both women are due in the spring, it could effect the final few episode depending on how early they finish filming.
