Well, I don't watch much with babies in it. I thought the babies worked decently for Chief O'brien and his wife on DS9, so I'm not against the idea, although I'd never want babies as a consistant character on a show. I can see how it was a hard problem for Xena's writers to solve. With the way the show works, they either had to not film for most of a year, or hand wave it away. That said, they didn't need to make her real life pregnancy into an idiotic story idea. Xena getting pregnant because of Ares still makes more sense than that jerk Callisto using the Force to grow a magic baby inside Xena that she doesn't even end up raising, which just grows up to be Callisto mark 2 Heck, just saying Xena was getting fat because she ticked off a god would be better than Eve from what I read. Or, maybe Ares made her magically pregnant (if callisto can do it, ares can), then tries to steal the baby, but Xena manages to hide it from him, never to be talked about again. Still, like I said, it doesn't matter. I'll never see it, so as far as I'm concerned it never happens.
