Aubrey Plaza Is Obsessed With Being Pregnant On 'Parks and Rec', Jealous of Poehler's Leslie
Parks and Recreation's recent pregnancy is a big step for one marriage on the show — and a whole lotta baby, considering last week's episode revealed Leslie and Ben would be having triplets. But it's got one Parks star rather upset: That'd be Aubrey Plaza, who would much rather be wearing the fake pregnancy belly.
I think they’re doing it to spite me, getting Leslie pregnant. Because for years I’ve been begging them to let me get April pregnant and now they’re just getting her pregnant right in my face like that.
She also told Vulture a little while back that this has been going on for a while:
I’ve been saying this for two seasons now: If they don’t put a baby inside of me, I’m going to put one in myself, literally, so that they’re forced to write it on to the show!
It's an attitude Parks creator Mike Schur confirmed in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:
Oh, Aubrey keeps telling me that her dream is for April to become pregnant. The thing about the two of them, though, is that they’re young and stupid and irresponsible in a way that I really like. In the prom episode, just in passing you hear that Andy tried to jump a car over a lake. I think if he were a dad, that would be a lot less charming. I won’t say that will never happen or might not happen next year — who knows? — but I like the fact that they can jump in a car and drive to the Grand Canyon when they want to, and they can jump their cars over lakes, and they can be irresponsible and young. At least for this season, there’s no plans for that.
So there you have it: Aubrey Plaza is baby-crazy when it comes to her Parks and Rec character. In fact, so baby crazy that she's threatened to get herself actually pregnant in order to accomplish her onscreen goals. You gotta admire its tenacity.
