Real L Word’s Cori & Kacy Are Pregnant, 5 Months Away From Adorable Baby Photos


If you watched Seasons Two and Three of The Real L Word, you probably fell head-over-heels for Cori and Kacy, the ultra-cute lesbian couple who could do no wrong. Cori and Kacy’s season two storyline revolved around their attempts to get pregnant, which is apparently super-complicated and expensive and definitely elevated by biological clock’s road towards panic, and season three dealt with the heartbreaking aftermath of losing their baby at five months.

At the season’s end, they decided to take a break from baby-making and just live, which hopefully enabled a lot of fun for Cori’s alter-ego, Coco.

Well, yesterday the couple announced the good news on their blog (Thank you to reader Isabelle for the tip!):

This time last year, we were in a different place.  The news we delivered was heavy, and difficult, but you helped us through:  sharing our pain, sharing your stories, but mostly, with overwhelming heaps of positive and encouraging wishes and thoughts for our family.

 Today, almost a year later, we have some very different news to share.  It is my absolute pleasure to announce that my gorgeous wife, Cori, is pregnant!!!!!!!

 I am sure you have questions, so here are the stats:

–       She is – 4 months pregnant

–       She is – on bed rest for the duration of the pregnancy

–       She is –scheduled for her cerclage today

–       We are – ecstatic!!!!!!!

 We don’t know the sex yet, but we know that there is a healthy baby kicking around in there, and she (or he) is roughly the size of an avocado.

 It’s been so hard not to shout this from the rooftops, but given our difficulties in the past, we wanted to wait.  Well, the wait is over.  We are pregnant!!!!!

My heart feels so warm for Kacy & Cori, and I bet yours does too. Plus, this definitely opens up a supreme opportunity for Kacy & Cori’s offspring to team up with Nikki & Jill‘s son, Adler Scot Goldstein, for a Muppet Babies-esque spinoff from the original show. Hopefully it’d involve babies dressed up as animals, like lobsters or jungle animals. It’s so cute when people dress up their babies like tigers.

  1. Thank you for keeping us updated! Fingers and toes crossed for healthy mama and baby! I have been thinking recently about whether they tried again, or considered adoption, since 5 months of bedrest? Yikes! That is serious dedication so I wish them the best, they are inspiring for all of us who plan to become mommies someday. The baby will be soso lucky. <3

  2. After reading the crappy news about the Real L Word this morning, this more than makes up for it! Best wishes to them!

  3. in light of my recent pregnancy hysteria (that makes no sense because i don’t want babies until i’m 30+) this is very very very awesome exciting news. actually in light of everything ever this is amazing news. mazel tov, cori and kacy!
