bethany joy galeotti 'One Tree Hill's' Bethany Joy Galeotti is pregnant! What does this mean for the show?Congratulations are in order for “One Tree Hill” star Bethany Joy Galeotti. E! reports that the actress and her husband, Michael Galeotti, are expecting their first baby, though her reps have declined to comment.

Michael’s band, Enation, includes “General Hospital” star Jonathan Jackson. You may remember the group from when they performed their song “Feel This” with Bethany Joy in “One Tree Hill’s” sixth season.

Joy’s caracter, Haley James Scott, has already got a seven-year-old. Whether Galeotti will continue to chase Jackson Brundage around on-camera beyond is still up in the air – sources tell E! that Galeotti may not return to Tree Hill if The CW decides to renew the show beyond the first 12 episodes of Season 8.

Of course, maternity leave is important, but it leaves us wondering what will happen to Haley if Galeotti leaves the show. After all, she’s been married to Nathan (James Lafferty) since their junior year of high school, and she does have that aforementioned kid to worry about.

We know that Haley will be spending more time focusing on her music this season, since she’s hitching a ride to Portland to perform on “Life Unexpected.” A tour could feasibly take her away from Tree Hill for a while.

What do you think, Zappers? If Galeotti leaves the show, do you expect Lafferty to go with her, a la Hilarie and Chad circa Season 6?
