21 Best and Worst Pregnancies on TV

7. Best: Lola & Francis (Reign)

Best: Lola & Francis (Reign)
Lola's pregnancy caused lots of drama among the royals, with Francis and Mary happily married while Lola carried his bastard child. Oh, the intrigue! Reign has done a good job of keeping this love triangle ambiguous, but Francis' son might just be pushing him closer to Lola and further from Mary.

8. Worst: Sydney & Vaughn (Alias)

Worst: Sydney & Vaughn (Alias)
The best thing about watching Alias every week was seeing Sydney Bristow tackle terrorists and jump out of moving trains. Pregnant Sydney pretty much just sat around the office all day. Worse, she was replaced by a far less intimidating and charismatic blonde, Rachel. There's a reason this show did not survive past Season 5.

9. Best: Mellie & Fitz (Scandal)

Best: Mellie & Fitz (Scandal)
This one almost made the worst pregnancies list because it was a totally fake fix-it pregnancy to boost Mellie and Fitz's marriage and thus his presidency. Plus, little Teddy has rarely made appearances on the show. But it stays a winner because it's further proof of just how FAR Mellie is willing to go to succeed politically. We need more women like her on TV.

10. Worst: Amber & Ryan (Parenthood)

Worst: Amber & Ryan (Parenthood)
This tiny tot only gets a bad grade because of how wildly unfit Amber was to be a parent. The support of a loving family doesn't change the fact that Amber was an unemployed 20-year-old and Ryan was dealing with a pill dependency and some sort of PTSD. Naming him after Grandpa Zeek sure was cute though.

11. Best: Maleficent (Once Upon a Time)

Best: Maleficent (Once Upon a Time)
The details of Maleficent's pregnancy are still a little mysterious, but I'm loving what I see so far. Her history with King Stefan brought a whole new dimension to her character, and the heartbroken little shake of her unborn child's rattle gets me every time. Poor Maleficent.

12. Worst: Cyrus & James (Scandal)

Worst: Cyrus & James (Scandal)
Yes, I know it's an adoption, but it still counts! I'm a huge fan of James and Cyrus adopting their baby girl together, and how much Cyrus came to love her. But, um, where the heck has this kid been the last six months? Have we even seen her? Has Cyrus mentioned her at all? Someone call child protective services, pronto!
