Well this should be interesting. "Grey's Anatomy" star Sarah Drew is pregnant.

No big deal, right?

Well, as fans of the show will tell you, Drew plays Dr. April Kepner who was recently promoted to chief resident. Oh yeah and she's a virgin.

Drew was just made a series regular in June, so writing her off the show isn't likely to happen. They could put her character on bed rest like they did when Ellen Pompeo got pregnant, but with Dr. Kepner's new leadership role, we're gonna rule that out as well.

According to People, Drew is due in January. This will be the first child for the actress and her husband, Peter Lanfer.

So, will they write the pregnancy into the show? Or will she just be carrying lots of boxes this season?

Has "Grey's Anatomy" covered immaculate conception yet?
