What about sleeping arrangements? Bassinet in the bedroom? Crib in the nursery?
We haven't really decided, but the baby probably will be in a bassinet in our room for the first few months, then move to a crib. Roger doesn't want to put the baby in another room. I don't think we'll have the baby in bed with us, but you never know; if you do that, can you ever get them out?
And do you know what sex the baby is?
We are not going to find out the sex. Once I realized that I didn't care if it was a boy or a girl, I got into the adventure of not knowing. And the main reason to not find out is so you don't put all these projections on them even before they're born, like, "Oh the baby's so active, he's going to be an athletic boy." Well, maybe she will be an athletic girl, you know?
Is your pregnancy being written into the show?
Yes, but not right away. I met with the producers, and they said, "Uh, you're showing—Cheryl isn't pregnant in the first episode." I said, "OK, here's the problem: Courtney is 6 months pregnant; it's not like I can take it back." But the clothes are so forgiving right now, it should be easy to hide; people will just think I got a boob job.
