Mrs. Carter: Just as Jackson is at a crossroads on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Jesse Williams is experiencing quite a few changes in his own life as well.
What is one of these new life changes? According to Us Weekly, the actor and his wife Aryn Drake-Lee are expecting their first child together, and she is set to give birth in December. The couple has managed to live a pretty private life away from the fame of the TV show, which helps to explain somewhat why it took this long for the news to even hit the public eye. While Williams is a TV star, Drake-Lee is a real estate broker. The two first met back before the actor found fame on the ABC series, and was working as a teacher in New York City. The two married in September of last year.
The good news for Williams is that he is certainly going to have plenty of people on set to talk to when it comes to baby advice. Ellen Pompeo, Jessica Capshaw, and Sarah Drew are all recent parents. Patrick Dempsey also has children, though they are a little bit older.
While Williams awaits this big arrival in his real life, some of what is driving the character right now is figuring out where he stands personally with Drew’s April. She may have excepted Matthew’s proposal, but as we know very well courtesy of watching “Grey’s Anatomy” over the years, this is not anywhere close to a guarantee that the two are actually going to get married. There are still major changes still to come on the show, and we will have more on that subject soon.
