‘Hart of Dixie’ season 3: Jaime King, Kyle Newman welcome son James Knight Newman

What is she up to? -

Mrs. Carter: What a weekend this has turned out to be in the “Hart of Dixie” world.

A matter of just one day before the show is set to return to The CW with all-new episodes, the news has arrived that actress Jaime King and her husband Kyle Newman have welcomed their first child together. Newman himself was the first to announce the baby news on Twitter, saying that their son’s name is James Knight Newman and that mother and baby are doing well.

If we were to go into full-on baby name analysis mode, we would say this: Knight may be a little bit of a crazy middle name, but it’s not Pilot Inspector or North West. Plus, he has a normal first name, which should keep any potential craziness in school at bay. So kudos here on both practicality and originality at the same time.

As for what this means for “Hart of Dixie,” the simple answer is that King is still going to need (and want) some time off, and her character Lemon (who is not being written into the story this season as pregnant, at least as far as it has been revealed by the network so far) will be taking a hiatus. This is one of the benefits of making Kaitlyn Black recently into a series regular, since they now have someone else who can step in and take over some of the scenes for a little while as King enjoys her time as a new mom. Given the timing of the birth, it’s possible that King will be around again for some episodes near the end of the season, but that’s really up to her.

We’ll have a full review of tonight’s “Hart of Dixie” up after it airs, but do you want to read a little bit more concerning what to expect from the show? Then just take a look at the story here, and stay tuned for some more coverage.
