  • The Ghost Whisperer Baby Daddy Update: Who Knocked Up Melinda?

Matt richenthal

Melinda Gordon is knocked up. This is one Ghost Whisperer spoiler that was leaked as soon as we all saw shots of Jennifer Love Hewitt on set with a baby bump . So, who is the child's father? Jim or Sam? According to an interview the series creator gave E! Online, all signs points to... Jim. "Do the math: less time has passed for our characters than has passed in the broadcast calendar," said P.K. Simonds. "Basically, time slowed down in the aftermath of the big events at the beginning of the season. [The 12 episodes] since Jim died have taken less than 12 weeks in terms of Jim and Melinda's lives."

Are You Okay?!?

Wait... so So might Melinda have been pregnant this entire time without realizing it? "Sometimes you don't notice something like that," Simonds said. "Especially going through what she's gone through - the cycles [can be] interrupted by traumatic events." Wow. TMI, dude.

'Ghost Whisperer': Okay, who cried?

Staff Writer

SPOILER ALERT! Just when I thought I’d made it through an episode of Ghost Whisperer without welling up, Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Jim/Sam (David Conrad) found out that she was pregnant. The baby was conceived eight weeks ago, which in Ghost Whisperer time was before Jim died and stepped into Sam’s body. Melinda’s pregnancy was perhaps the worst-kept secret in TV land, since photos of Hewitt carrying a faux baby bump on set leaked, but the timing was still a pleasant surprise — at least to me. I hadn’t seen a promo. I hadn’t been thinking about the show or its direction since it was off the air for much of March and April. I thought we were just getting a fun episode about Delia, Eli, and Jim outing themselves as superfans of the soap opera filming in town.

What was your reaction to the baby news? Do you finally feel like this Jim/Sam storyline is paying off? I’ve felt like it was worth it since the episode that Jim remembered that he was Jim (and not just because that particular moment found Conrad wearing a wet T-shirt and using his soft Jim-voice again…well, maybe). But if you’ve been holding out, might the sight of Jim/Sam kneeling and proposing to Melinda next Friday break you?

Melinda Gordon

The series follows the life of Melinda Irene Gordon, who can see and communicate with the dead. Trying to live as normal a life as possible, she is married and owns an antique store with her best friend, Andrea. Melinda helps earthbound spirits resolve their problems and cross over into the light, or the spirit world. Her tasks are difficult and at times she struggles with people who push her away and do not believe in her gift. In addition, the ghosts are mysterious and sometimes menacing at first, and Melinda must use the clues available to her to understand the spirits' needs and help them.

Early Life [ ]

Melinda was born to Beth Gordon and Paul Eastman both of whom were mediums, like her. Melinda has been able to see ghosts since she was a little girl. Her grandmother told her about their abilities, and that Melinda's mother doesn't like their gifts because it scares her. Later on, Melinda met her husband, Jim, when her apartment building was on fire and had to be evacuated from the building. Melinda sees the ghost of an elderly woman whose husband is still inside. Melinda tells Jim that there is still a man inside, and even though he doesn't fully believe her, he goes inside and double-checks. He finds the man still breathing, and the man's wife. The wife is relieved that her husband is safe, and can cross over. Jim sees Melinda walking, and he gets off his fire truck to walk with her. After they met, they eventually got married and moved to Grandview, New York where Melinda opened a small antique shop, named "The Same As It Never Was" Antiques. She met and became friends with Andrea Marino, who came to share management responsibilities of the store with Melinda. Eventually, Melinda gained enough trust in Andrea to tell her about her ability.

Powers and Abilities [ ]

Mediumship: A hereditary gift, Melinda was born with the ability to see and communicate with earthbound spirits and uses this ability to help them crossover into the Light, however, there are a few that remain earthbound for many reasons. Spirits can give her visions of the past and future to give her information on what is keeping them earthbound, some scarier than others, due to some spirits forgetting various things from their name, families, and even their identity to the point that this and other things can reflect on how a spirit presents itself to her. She must give loved ones closure while the spirits find their peace and can move on. Her abilities have even been able to interact with technology, as she was able to pull a ghost out of a computer that was existing inside of an online chat game and was even able to enter the game world to confront them. Meredith is also possibly able to see ghosts in photographs as when she saw the glare on her wedding pictures she knew it was Dan, whether she saw him or had common sense is unknown. Her powers also might be unique amongst ghost whisperers as when the 1800s bloody ghost from Grandview said powerful, he could’ve been saying that he's finally strong enough to have caused the cave-in, although he might’ve caused others as well, or he might’ve been calling her powerful, something that supports this was when her ancestor Tessa said that other ghost whisperers have come to help but have died as well, and her stepfather backed this up as well.

Psychometry: It is revealed that Melinda is capable of a form of Extrasensory Perception, where she receives visions about the history of an object by touching said object.


Intense Energy: If a spirit(s) pushes too much of its energy onto Melinda it can overwhelm her to the point of passing out.
