Meghan Ory was pregnant while filming Season 6 of Chesapeake Shores. The actress announced the news on Instagram in a post celebrating the end of shooting Season 6 of Chesapeake Shores.
“I started this season with #hyperemesisgravidarum and ended it with #covid — it has been quite the run!,” she wrote, “thank you so much to our amazing cast and crew for having so much patience with me while I tried not to barf on anyone.”
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a condition characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, and weight loss. Kate Middleton was hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum. Comedian Amy Schumer also shared her experience with the condition.
“BRAVA bella,” one wrote in a response to the post. “You are strength incarnate.”
Robert Buckley, who plays Ory’s love interest on Chesapeake Shores, replied with, “You are unstoppable.”
Ory has played Abby O’Brien on the hit Hallmark series since it debuted in 2016. Based on a series of books by Sherryl Woods, the show followed a single mother (Ory), who returns to her small hometown in Maryland following a divorce. She is thrown right back into the drama of her large Irish family and reconnects with her ex-boyfriend Trace Riley, who was played by Jesse Metcalfe on the series.
Fans were shocked when Metcalfe announced he was leaving the series shortly before filming began on Season 5.
“I just felt that there wasn’t really anything else I could do with the character,” he said in an interview.
Writers introduced a new character in Season 5, an eccentric billionaire developer who falls for Abby despite their widely different personalities.
