Is The Vampire Diaries' Klaus going to be a daddy?!

During "The Originals," which served as the backdoor pilot of the potential Klaus-centric series, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) went to New Orleans with one mission: find out why a witch in the city he built was plotting against him. What he didn't expect to learn was that his one-time affair with werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) would lead to something they never imagined possible: a child.

Vampire Diaries' Morgan: "The Originals" will explore a vulnerability in Klaus' personal life

"It's a change to the idea of how the mythology works, but it's also a fundamental challenge to his character," Morgan tells TVGuide.com. "Here's a guy who has been around for a thousand years and this is not only something new, but [something] mind-blowing! Especially to someone where family is such a complicated thing."

Although "Always and Forever" is the Mikaelson family motto, that's recently been tested, as remaining Originals Klaus, Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Elijah (Daniel Gilles) have increasingly been at odds. But would a new baby be the way to bring the family back together?

Elijah certainly hopes so. "Our family was ruined ... and since then all that you have ever wanted, all that we have ever wanted was a family," Elijah tells Klaus in the episode. "I'm asking you to stay here. Save this girl, save your child."

So will the shocking news reunite the family for good? "[Klaus'] idea of family will change forever," Morgan says. "There has never been the potential to have someone else join the family. ... What will this baby be?!"

We were wondering the same thing...
