The Flash's Candice Patton Wants a WestAllen Baby

Same, girl. SAME!

Lindsay MacDonald

We've been speculating all year that the "Mystery Girl" (Jessica Parker Kennedy) who keeps popping up in Central City on The Flash is actually Iris (Candice Patton) and Barry's (Grant Gustin) daughter from the future, but it turns out we're not the only one with WestAllen babies on the brain.

Candice Patton recently told reporters that a baby storyline is on her Iris West bucket list.

"I mean, no one wants to see pregnant Iris," Patton said, "but yeah, I think the next step, I guess, would be eventually to see Barry and Iris have a kid. I don't know when that could possibly happen with what they're trying to do."

The Flash: Here's Why Iris' Purple Lightning Matters

Admittedly, it would be pretty hard to work a baby storyline into the ins and outs of saving the world every week, but if anyone could pull it off it would be Iris. She's already juggling like a million responsibilities right now, what's one more? It would be worth it to see Iris and Barry being adorable, totally embarrassing parents.

As for the rest of the bucket list, Patton says there aren't too many items left on it.

"For me the bucket list is checked. I mean, if you guys killed me off tomorrow, I feel like I had a good run," she said.

We'll just pretend we didn't hear that...

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
