PlayBlog Becki Newton's Pregnancy Sets "Love Bites" Back to Midseason
"Ugly Betty" and cabaret performer Becki Newton is expecting a child with husband and Girl Crazy co-star Chris Diamantopoulos. The pregnancy is shifting the production scheduled of her new series, "Love Bites."

According to, NBC will move the romantic comedy to midseason and replace it for the fall with a non-celebrity edition of “The Apprentice” on Thursdays at 10 PM ET. As Newton plays a virgin on “Love Bites,” “we have to make adjustments to that,” said Vernon Sanders, executive vice president of current programming for NBC.

This is the first child for Newton and Diamantopoulos. There is no word on an official due date.
