After we had been final in Stars Hole, Rory Gilmore dropped a bombshell. In simply two phrases, our complete world (and presumably Lorelai Gilmore’s world) had been turned the other way up. “I am pregnant,” was the very last thing Rory mentioned within the last installment of Gilmore Women: A Yr within the Life, Netflix’s long-awaited reboot. For a lot of followers, it left us with extra questions than solutions. In every of the 4 seasonally-set episodes, we watched Rory get some much-needed catharsis between the sheets with numerous dudes, three confirmed and one suspected. So, who was the thriller man who gave Rory the “reward” of a Gilmore motherhood? We did not know! And we would have liked to know! Y’all, there may be actually tons and tons of fan fiction on the market dedicated to everybody’s theories on mom-to-be Rory’s “child daddy.” Have been any of them proper?
In response to Gilmore Women‘ wardrobe designer Valerie Campbell, there’s just one potential appropriate reply. And after years of watching the rumors and hypothesis by no means actually die down, she’s taking issues into her personal palms with a collection of posts to clarify. OK, let’s chunk.
“The one apparent alternative is — you guessed it — Logan,” Campbell mentioned. “If it was Paul, she would’ve had the infant within the ‘Fall,’ if it was the Wookiee, she would’ve been about to burst.”
That is proper: The one potential dad to Rory’s youngster is Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry).
Campbell goes on to debate that of their numerous wardrobe conferences, dressing Rory to showcase a bump or conceal a being pregnant was by no means addressed. Whereas some girls do, in truth, keep comparatively small throughout being pregnant, it is not precisely widespread — particularly on this planet of tv. Bursting bellies simply make for higher telly. And if Rory had been pregnant by Paul or “the Wookiee,” Campbell is true: She’d be exhibiting within the final scene.
Campbell prompt the reality was by no means meant to be a shock or secret, stating that even Gilmore Women’ creator and showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino has questioned why folks “are even questioning who the daddy is as a result of it is speculated to be very, very, very, very, very apparent.”
Is it, although, Amy? Is it?
We will rule out Paul and the Wookiee shortly sufficient. Nevertheless, there’s one different individual price bringing into the fold: Jess (Milo Ventimiglia). We do not explicitly see them having intercourse, as we do with Rory and Logan, however we did not see her hook up with Paul or the Wookiee both. Jess and Rory have all the time had plain chemistry, even to her different boyfriends. It is why each Dean and Logan had been wildly jealous of Jess all through the unique collection. Throughout A Yr within the Life, we watch Rory and Jess drink and pal round, identical to they used to with the type of mutual respect they all the time gave one another. So, though it is probably not protected to say they positively had intercourse, it is also not protected to say they positively did not. In spite of everything, who would not sleep with Jess if the choice offered itself?
Even Ventimiglia hinted that he wasn’t fully certain who fathered Rory’s child.
“I do not know. … I did not write the present, so I do not actually know,'” he mentioned in an interview with Individuals. “I simply know that [Sherman-Palladino] wished me to look lovingly within the path of Rory, performed by the good Alexis Bledel, and I did. And followers are like, ‘Oh my God, is it your child?’ I am like, ‘I do not know.’ It may very well be — I do not suppose it’s — but it surely may very well be.”
In fact, Logan is smart.
Granted, you may’t precisely deny the plain. Rory and Logan had been nonetheless clearly “a factor” and really a lot sleeping collectively all through A Yr within the Life. Plus, Logan makes excellent sense for a cyclical ending and from a “time marches on” perspective. Like her mom, Rory was lovingly (and rebelliously) in a relationship that neither household authorised of with an ultra-rich, considerably irresponsible man. You even see a touch that Rory already is aware of Logan is the daddy when she talks to her personal father about being a mum or dad. (Or, extra particularly, probably not being a mum or dad.) In that last scene along with her dad, she’s processing whether or not or not she’ll even inform Logan she’s pregnant and invite him alongside for that journey. In spite of everything, he is very a lot engaged to another person.
So, yeah. One “insider” says Rory Gilmore was pregnant with a tiny Huntzberger. However as everyone knows, generally dad and mom simply aren’t meant to be collectively. Should you’re Staff Jess, keep Staff Jess. Should you’re Staff Paul, keep Staff Paul. Should you’re Staff Dean… bizarre, however OK. And, in the event you’re workforce Wookiee:
