Out of all the surprises the This Is Us season three finale brought, one of the most shocking details was the fact that Kevin (Justin Hartley) has a son in the future. To see him end things with Zoe (Melanie Liburd) in one scene and have a child in the next was definitely jarring. Now, Hartley is speaking out about his character’s little surprise.
The 42-year-old actor sat down with Entertainment Weekly to fill in fans on a few details and even talked about who he hopes Kevin’s baby mama is.
So when will we learn this mystery woman’s identity? “As far as the timeline, I’ve been told a few different things. They know what it is, but I think the ‘when’—when we find out—they’re deciding,” Hartley explained.
He went on to say the story line “comes together in a way where it’s very satisfying for the audience. I also think it makes a lot of sense, and it’s one of those standard This Is Us writer moments where when you see it, you go, ‘Why didn’t I see that coming?’ But you can’t see it until it’s in front of your face.”
