The Office Baby Update: Delayed By the Olympics Like Everything Else!

by at . Comments

The Office's beloved Jim and Pam Halpert (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) will be welcoming a new addition to their family soon. But not until after the Olympics, natch.

When Pam finally gives birth on the Thursday night comedy, the little boy or girl may well be walking and talking already, because she's been pregnant since May already.

She's not even showing, really. At this rate, the kid will be born in mid-2011.

"Pam was originally due in February, but now the baby won't come until at least March," Jenna told E!, and you can blame the Olympics, airing February 12-28 on NBC.

The Winter Games will preempt The Office quotes (and babies) for a few Thursdays. Who cares about luge, ski jumping and bobsledding when you've got the Dundies?!

Jenna Fischer isn't looking too pregnant in real life. Because she's not.

On the flip side, unlike SOME shows that will remain anonymous but are totally on our s--t list right now (cough, Glee, FlashForward, V), The Office won't be gone too long.

We'll get to see two episodes before the Olympics, on February 4 and 11, as well as tonight's Christmas episode. So that's better than nothing, and sure to be hilarious.
