Leigh-Allyn Baker has co-starred on the Disney Channel’s hit show Good Luck Charlie for the past two seasons and in the upcoming third season her character, Amy Duncan, is pregnant. Luckily for Baker, the actress really is expecting with baby number two!
The mother of 3-year old Griffin with husband, Keith Kauffman, dishes to ForKidsEntertainment.com about what to expect on GLC and how her real-life experiences coincide with her character’s.
On getting pregnant again: “If Amy can do it again, I can do it surely,” she giggled. “It was time to decide if we wanted a second one or not and I wanted to plan it where I was able to deliver when we were finished with the third season so I could hopefully enjoy a few months with the baby and then go back to work. Or, at least I could enjoy my last season of Good Luck Charlie if they don’t pick it up again.”
On educating GLC’s writers about pregnancy: “I’ve suggested a few things to them… it’s interesting, most of the writers on the show are men. So they have one idea of pregnancy and I have another [laughs]. Sometimes we butt heads on what a real pregnancy is like. Of course their perspective is as the father and what they watched their wife go through. My perspective is a real perspective because I’m actually going through it. We find a happy medium of that.”
On working during her first trimester with ‘pregnancy-brain:’ “Okay… The first three months – I’m not going to lie – were very difficult. They would try and nit pick me on words on a line and I would say ‘you guys don’t know how lucky you are that I remembered where I work, let alone my lines [laughs].’”
