Leigh-Allyn Baker: Pregnant With Baby No. 2

Leigh-Allyn Baker: Pregnant With Baby #2

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].’”

    • I agree. GLC and Ant Farm are the two best shows on the Disney Channel. The creators have succeeded in making a show that appeals to all ages. I am 47 and not ashamed to say that I watch it. Sometimes with my daughter, sometimes without her. That Ivy Wentz is sumpm.

    Too bad this might be the end of GLC. Either that or someone needs to leave the show. I really like this show. If they take this away, we’ll be stuck with crap shows like ANT Farm and Austin & Ally.

    Hey, I am 10 years old and I just wanted know the gender of the baby and when is the episode of the Special Delivery of the baby !!! Me and my mom always watch Good Luck Charlie (GLC) and well we were both wondering sense you guys named the show after the youngest child “Charlie” (Charlotte) so we were wondering are you going to change the name of the show to Good Luck and what the name of the new Duncan baby is going to be! And is Bridget going to make video diarys for the new baby or just still Mia or Both of them that is a good idea right !!! (: (;

    Good Luck Charley has to last at least 20 more seasons! I want to see how Mia (Charley) becomes an accomplished actress.
