Hilarie Burton Debuts Baby Bump with Jeffrey Dean Morgan at the Emmys

By  | 

Hilarie Burton & Jeffrey Dean Morgan have so much to celebrate this year! Not only are their careers as healthy as can be — the two have been dominating TV screens throughout 2017 (Hilarie on Lethal Weapon; Jeffrey on The Walking Dead) — but their personal lives are even better because… they’ve got a baby on the way!


The couple took on the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet last night, side-by-side and hand-on-belly, leading many to suspect that the 35-year-old One Tree Hill alum is pregnant with her 51-year-old Grey’s Anatomy alum husband’s second child.

Hilarie’s former OTH co-star, Barbara Alyn Woods, confirmed the news of the pair’s expanding family to Us Weekly at the star-studded event, saying that JDM told her about the pregnancy that very evening.

As previously mentioned, the new addition will be Baby #2 for Hil & Jeff, as the pair secretly welcomed a son, Augustus Morgan, in March 2010 — before the two even went public with their relationship.


Their love story reportedly began in 2009, when Jensen Ackles set them up on a blind date. Hilarie’s friends with Jensen through his wife, Danneel Harris, another one of Hilarie’s former OTH co-stars; Jeffrey’s friends with Jensen through Supernatural, playing Jensen’s dad on the CW series.

Both stars were previously married: JDM wedded Anya Longwell in June 1992, but were divorced come July 2003; Hilarie’s marriage to Ian Prange, an assistant director she met on the set of One Tree Hill, came to an end in 2009; the same year she kicked things off with Jeffrey. J & H walked down the aisle in 2014.
