‘Glee’ season 5: Heather Morris, Taylor Hubbell welcome child; name baby boy Elijah

GleeMrs. Carter: Heather Morris has now gone from Cheerio to mom.

The “Glee” star, who has taken all of this season off so far in preparation for giving birth, has now welcomed a baby boy into the world with her longtime partner Taylor Hubbell (who she met in high school). According to Us Weekly, we also now know that the baby’s name is Elijah. Major congratulations to Heather and Taylor not just on having a new child in their lives, but for choosing a name that is distinctive, but normal enough that they will not have to see their kid get bullied in school for having a ridiculous name that could be difficult to live with.

Just in case you were wondering if there is a timetable now on when Morris would return to “Glee,” the answer here is that there is not. While it is possible that she could be back on the set in the spring, it’s really all going to come down to what she wants to do. Right now, her character of Brittany is off at MIT, where she was invited during a surprise encounter near the end of the show’s fourth season. It was a nice little victory for a girl that was always told that she was either stupid or crazy the vast majority of time.

While she is away from the show, Brittany’s one-time love interest Santana (Naya Rivera) is going to have a new lady in her life courtesy of Dani (Demi Lovato). However, we have learned already that the “Skyscraper” singer is only going to be around for a handful of episodes this year.
