Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam on the hit comedy show The Office is pregnant. Her real life pregnancy has been written into season eight of the show. On the show, the characters Pam and Jim are keeping this secret that they had sex on Valentine’s Day and conceived a baby. The new baby will be their second child.
Fisher lets Nymag.com in on some set details “When we started shooting that [Valentine’s Day] episode, I thought to myself, If everything goes well, this is going to be a very, very convenient coincidence and I think I found out I was pregnant when we were shooting that episode.” Fisher said that the Michael Scott character replacement was chosen, but she is not allowed to say who.
