'NCIS: LA' Season 5 Spoilers: Densi Baby? Is Kensi Carrying Deeks' Child? How Will Daniela Ruah's Pregnancy Fit Into Plot? VIDEO
NCIS: Los Angeles is in the midst of a game changing season, and the relationship between Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) is a major factor in the plot development.
As the two characters attempt to figure out where they stand romantically, many fans are wondering how Ruah's real life pregnancy will factor into the equation.
The short answer is that it won't.
Although Ruah recently announced that she is expecting a baby boy with Olsen's stunt double and real-life brother, David Olsen, execs claim that Kensi will not be pregnant on the show.
"The pregnancy does not play into their storyline at all," said series creator Shane Brennan, according to TV Line. "Let's put that thought, rumor, suggestion to rest. Kensi is not carrying Deeks' baby. She's not carrying anyone's baby on the screen."
Those involved with the CBS drama have teased a shocking change for the partners later in the season. Whatever this new twist entails, it won't involve the prospect of a Densi baby.
"Then there's quite a shocking moment in Episode 10 that throws everything awry, and then for the next eight or so episodes it's Kensi and Deeks and their relationship is in some serious trouble, and then there's very much a big, big, big shock around Episode 18 for both of them, one that shakes their relationship again," Brennan told TV Line.
Possibly in an effort to hide Ruah's pregnancy onscreen, executive producer John Peter Kousakis recently shot a seven-episode Afghanistan story arc involving Kensi and Granger (Miguel Ferrer). While this could be part of the midseason shocker, the twist could also involve the departure of a team member, Deeks' possible move back to LAPD, a surprising decision from Hetty, or the arrival of Kensi's ex-fiancée.
NCIS: LA airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. See the cast talk about their children in the video below.
