'Baby Daddy' Showrunner Dan Berendsen Dishes on Riley & Danny's Big Surprise

Baby Daddy ended with a big surprise on the summer finale — Riley (Chelsea Kane) is pregnant!

Showrunner Dan Berendsen chatted with TVLine after the episode aired, and opened up about the pregnancy, new jobs, alternate endings and more. Check it:

On Danny as a father: “I think, like any man, he’ll be a little bit of a wreck. But in that other episode, he was also the first person to tell Riley he’d be there for her and the baby; you can tell what kind of a father he’s going to be. Danny lives up to this responsibilities.”

On Riley’s pregnancy: “We did that for a few reasons. Yes, we wanted there to be a little bit of a complication, but we also didn’t want to spring [Riley’s pregnancy] on the audience out of nowhere. What we really wanted to do was somehow connect Emma to it; as you know, the only reason Riley is pregnant is because Emma poked all those holes in the condoms. You can basically say this baby was Emma’s fault.”

On a time jump in the new season: “Yeah, I expect so. We normally come back on a big cliffhanger, but I think there will be a little bit of a time jump here. We’ve been off longer than we normally are, too, so people have gotten a little bit older. I don’t think it’ll be massive, but it won’t be the next day.”

On if this had been the last season: “In our alternate ending, instead of Ben getting out of that cab at the end, his mystery girl got into the cab. You saw them drive off together, which was a way to end the show with the audience knowing that Emma and Ben would both be OK.”
