The Originals: Freya's Baby Name Pays Tribute to One of Her Fallen Brothers

at .

When The Originals concluded its five-season run, it did so with the deaths of Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson. 

It was a divisive ending and one that had a profound impact on the surviving members of the Mikaelson family. 

Is Freya Ready for Love? - The Originals Season 4 Episode 7

Legacies Season 2 Episode 6, airing Thursday on The CW, finds Riley Voelkel reprising her role of Freya from the series. 

If you watch The Originals online, you know that Freya got married to Keelin and that their final storyline on the show involved them realizing that they wanted to be parents. 

There's been a bit of time jump since The Originals Season 5, and the big question on the minds of fans has mostly centered on whether the couple is still together and whether they got their wish to have a child.

In a new interview with TV Guide, Voelkel revealed that not only are Freya and Keelin still together, but that they have a son together. 

She followed that bombshell up by saying that the child is called Nick, meaning, you guessed it, this child is named after Nicklaus Mikaelson, aka Freya's sometimes wicked brother died on The Originals Season 5 Episode 13

"[Freya] is still happily married with her wife Keelin, and they have a child," the actress teased.

"Yes, they have a little son named Nik who — I guess you can assume who [he's] named after. The Freelin fans will be very happy."

Now, the question is, will Nick Mikaelson somehow wind up at the Salvatore School? He's bound to have powers, so it's perfectly plausible that he could move to the school down the line. 

His older cousin Hope has been a substantial addition to the school, and it has helped her understand her powers on a different level. 

Freya will probably drop a lot of intel during the big episode.

Even though The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are over, fans have been learning details about characters from the previous shows, even if the characters do not appear. 

Back on Legacies Season 1, Lizzie made a wish that the school didn't exist, so she and Josie were forced to attend Mystic Falls High, the same school as Stefanie Salvatore, the daughter of Elena and Damon. 

Fans were thrilled, but outside of that wish world, the child has yet to be mentioned. 

What are your thoughts on this bombshell?
