Home Economics fans who don’t follow Sarah actor Caitlin McGee on social media may have missed that she is pregnant, with the star having announced the good news earlier this summer.
The beloved ABC sitcom returned to our screens this week for a third season following the end of the second season in May. As McGee is back on our screens, fans may not have known that in between the second and third seasons of Home Economics, the actress announced she is pregnant.
Baby Juniper McGee Woodall, Caitlin McGee’s daughter, was born early.
Caitlin and her husband Patrick Woodall had originally announced that they were expecting a child in October of 2022. Later, on September 24, 2022, she wrote that she is “Literally any second” away from giving birth.
Caitlin also said that she was proud of herself for working until her third trimester of pregnancy and that she was taking a leave of absence from Home Ec to focus on the birth of her kid. Working those hours, night shoots, high temperatures, etc. was difficult, she wrote.
But I f***ing accomplished it and I’m damn proud of myself. On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, three days after her Instagram post, Caitlin gave birth to her daughter Juniper. She shared the first official selfie she’d taken with Juniper, along with other cute pictures, on October 5, 2022.
On top of that, Caitlin said she was already head over heels for the newborn. She gushed, “I adore her so much it makes my heart pain,” in an Oct. 5 note. I don’t want to seem odd, but Juniper McGee Woodall, we’re really infatuated with you. I’m over the moon to call me your mom, you little.”
Caitlin has provided further updates on her baby’s development since her initial post with Juniper. She also admitted her anxiety over introducing Juniper to her dog Gertie in another photo.
Caitlin said she was “so, so pleased” with Gertie for how fast she adjusted to having Juniper as a “roommate,” and she also revealed that she had started preparing her dog for the change months before Juniper was born.

Patrick Woodall, wife of Caitlin McGee
Home economics instructor Caitlin McGee wed actor Patrick Woodall in 2021. She spilled the beans in an interview with Galore magazine about their first encounter. They initially interacted in 2014 at a play’s rehearsal.
They felt attraction for one another, but she was in a relationship at the time, so they didn’t pursue it. Like in many great love stories, fate brought them together again when they were both single and eager to give their friendship a go as something more than just that.
Before he asked her to marry him out of the blue in July 2020, he had been dating her for quite some time. The proposal was a classic beach scene because she had no idea he was going to go on one knee.
They were just hanging out at Santa Monica Pier when she decided to strike a pose in front of the chilly water. After she said yes, he sneaked into the shot with a diamond ring in his hand as she leaped into his arms.
Before they were engaged, they were closest friends, so he understood how to close things out. They spoke and snacked on lobster rolls and fries while their buddies snapped photos of the scenic setting.
The guy of the hour is familiar with the audience since he was friends with them on the sketch comedy program College Humor Originals. He’s dedicated himself to the comedy industry, performing in both short- and long-term projects as a member of the improv troupe at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
The value of respect in a long-term partnership is comparable to that of love. He continues to promote Caitlin and her profession on his Instagram pages. He gushed that she was a wonderful roommate and a constant source of motivation because of her insatiable curiosity about the world.
Motivated by this, he worked harder.
Caitlin declared that the birth of her child was imminent.
The actress shared every move and update with her fans during her pregnancy. Even in Home Economics class, she let the cat out of the bag.
She announced the impending arrival of her child with the caption, “I had my final day of Home Ec this week since the baby is due Literally any second now,” posted on Instagram. It was difficult, to put it mildly, to work those hours, shoot at night, in the heat, etc. In any case, I sucked it up and did it anyhow.
I’d want to say a heartfelt thank you to my wonderful cast and crew, who have been so accommodating to me while I’ve waddled around and tried to hide my growing baby belly behind more ridiculously sized props over the past several months.
Moreover, you, the women who give birth, are just amazing. I now have a deeper appreciation for women who take on the challenge of giving birth. In 2014, Patrick and McGee worked together at the Manhattan Theatre Club, where they became friends.
And after so many amazing experiences together, they finally said yes to being a couple. McGee has been guest-starring or supporting parts on a number of popular television shows, including Blue Bloods, Chicago Med, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
In the October 2019 episode “When Cupid is a Prying Journalist” from the first season of Amazon Prime Video’s anthology series Modern Love, McGee played Emma, the love interest of Dev Patel’s Joshua.
Those of us here couldn’t be happier for the pair. In your opinion, how adorable is this declaration? We encourage you to stick around here for updates.
