Nashville writers have decided to use Hayden Panettiere’s real-life pregnancy as a storyline for the show.
E! News confirms that the third season of the ABC drama features a pregnant Juliette Barnes and determining who the father is will be the primary storyline of the new season.
After Juliette decided to cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson) and have a drunken one night stand with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the head of Edgehill Republic, there is some doubt as to who the father will end up being. The smart money is on the latter as Hudson has been promoted to being a series regular in the new season.
