    I accidentally stumbled upon this rumor in a news article last night, and if I remember correctly, it explicitly stated that Rey becomes pregnant by someone other than Kylo, who has left the galaxy even worse off than the Empire left it with his regime in the 5 years since The Last Jedi. If you ask me, it sounds a little far-fetched.

    Rey and Kylo’s personal journeys are far from finished, and personally, I feel like going this route would almost be forcing them to take on the Luke/Leia/Han roles of the next trilogy that may or may not happen before they’ve even finished their own. Even if there is a time gap, these characters still have personal conflicts of their own and stories that have not been finished.

    Plus, the whole idea of Rey becoming pregnant simply through touching Kylo Ren’s hand is absolutely ridiculous, even more than the whole midichlorian thing, as others have suggested. I believe when Rian was talking about how that was the closest Star Wars ever came to a sex scene, he was referring to the emotional intimacy and vulnerability between the two characters. In that moment, they had connected and were able to understand each other through the Force in a way that previously has never been exhibited in a Star Wars film.

    So, in short, I really feel like this is pretty far-fetched. If nothing else, Rey is the protagonist of this trilogy, and a damn good one at that. But look at a character like Padmé. After two films where she did a considerable amount of fighting, her pregnancy in Revenge of the Sith essentially rendered her useless. Lucasfilm isn’t going to want that for Rey, especially because physically, she wouldn’t be capable of fighting or doing many of the things she’s been able to do in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

    Believe me, there are way too many issues with this rumor for it to actually be plausible.

    I am in agreement with you that Rey being pregnant in Episode IX is far-fetched. She will need to be in peak Jedi performance and also she will be physically challenged to help defeat the First Order, Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren. I can see her have a family of her own as an end epilogue scene (much like Samwise Gamgee in LOTR) to show that the Galaxy is at peace and that Rey finally was rewarded with the one thing she desired as a character. As to who the father of her children will be: Ben Solo, Poe Dameron or Finn, is yet to be seen. She could wind up going all in the Jedi Code and not be attached to having a family and focus in on training the next generation of Jedi. I just think Rey is the Obi-wan of this trilogy to Kylo Ren's Anakin/Darth Vader.

    I find it funny how so many people use the word "rumor." Like, as if it is from an inside source whose information may or may not be completely accurate and complete. Instead of, "I made up this speculation on an internet forum." It only takes a teenager 15 minutes of boredom to pull a paragraph of fan-fic out of his ass and post it as a "rumor". You should have seen some of the rumors from the prequel days; does anyone remember the "Yoda farts" one from Ep III?

    I don't think Hollywood knows how to make pregnancy empowering on film in any way. It's sad, but pregnancy is under attack from left and right in different ways. For this reason alone, I don't see them doing this with Rey. I think there could be a way that it could be done great, but I don't think as a society, or as a production even, it could be made good, or accepted by the audience.

    Put it this way, a Rey pregnancy would get attacked from the left because they'd accuse the writers of focusing on Rey's femininity in a too basic way that would undermine her power and warrior persona. The right would attack a Rey pregnancy by mocking the idea a pregnant or recently pregnant woman can fight, or should fight ect... It's a no win scenario. It would get bad press from every possible angle, I don't even state them all here.

    There would be bad press over how she got pregnant (hand touching, virgin pregnancy, multi-racial Finn/Rey couple, abusive bf/hubby Kylo, artificial insemination, possibly lesbian relationship, Luke/Rey age gap ect...). In some cases they might applaud it, but it would still get some major resistance in many circles and probably cause a heck of a lot more divisiveness than we already have.

    Maybe one day as a society we will be able to imagine pregnancy in a positive way (and maybe accept other peoples decisions without casting judgment), but right now society is too touchy. It's common practice for many women to bash pregnancy (whether they've been or not) while there are also unrealistic expectations put on women (from both some other women and men). Then of course there'd be question of parental rights, safety of the child and judging the character on their parental choices (as we now see with Qui-Gon and young Anakin) ect...

    So even if they nailed the perfect scenario and it was acted amazingly well and every thing was well executed, it would still be divisive. Do we see her breast feed, or dare say breast feed in public, or not? If not in public, why not? Whatever choice they'd make it would divide and get backlash from certain groups.

    The left would complain about making her a mom, the right would complain about her not telling Kylo (I'm assuming if he's mad it would be due to he being the dad). There would be a microscope on the parenting by both sides. Heck, abortion could come into discussion as to why she wouldn't abort Kylo's kid in such a volatile galaxy and the child being the focus of a mad man (and if abortion gets in the discussion, check reason and calm answers at the door). I'm sure there are dozens of other issues that would crop up.

    On the other hand, maybe we get a spin off movie on how Rey infiltrates a sperm bank and steals Kylo's sperm to have his baby lmao.

    Seriously though, just no. The only bright side to Rey's motherhood (at this point in the game) would be unifying all the fans, but unfortunately to the detriment of the franchise.

    (If you like the idea, I apologize, I'm just so convinced that the idea in your head would not be realized and it would be executed horribly. I could be wrong, but I don't see it.)

    I’m usually of the opinion that children and Star Wars don’t go together, but I feel that a storyline with a baby or child could be “the bomb” used for the redemption of Kylo Ren. After all he has childhood issues.

    Probably all this baby story is dribble but I could see it working if there was a context for it.

    I'm 100% Anti Reylo, but assuming JJ doesn't do a "back at ya" to RJ & makes Rey a Skywalker clone, the only way the Chosen Family lives on is if Rey & Ren (insert thoughts here).

    Of course JJ won't go back from Reylo. He's (and Kasdan too) the inventor of Reylo. But maybe the "chosen" Family doesn't need to prevail after all. Just saying.

    Uh, no. He just happened to make two characters share a couple of scenes with one of them having a creepy infatuation with the other. Not projecting "twoo wuvv", as the dude from The Princess Bride would put it.

    The fans made Reylo, because that's what the internet does. There's a difference. Shipping culture suuuuuuuuucks.

    Sure, TLJ expanded on the idea of there being a relationship between the characters (hand sex, yadda yadda yadda) before making it clear that it wouldn't work out, period. The two characters connect because both of them are alone - him moreso than her, although she doesn't realize this. And as it turns out, Kylo Ren's end of the bargain has a lot to do with him taking Snoke's lesson of manipulating someone's weakness to heart, not because he was having doubts about his commitment to the First Order. His attempt at empathy ironically made him more of a monster.

    If I recall correctly, there was a sizeable portion of the Avatar: The Last Airbender fandom that fully expected Zuko and Katara to end up together because of a single scene in the show and no real evidence outside of that. And people were somehow surprised and pissed that it didn't happen. I honestly expect something similar to play out here - even though there's evidence that the pairing could happen, there's also plenty of evidence to suggest that the story will end there. Could I be proven wrong on this front? Maybe. But satisfying the fandom's desire for parings are not the point of this story, and it never was.

    "One of the new realtionships we are focusing on was between Kylo Ren and Rey."
    "[...] a character who she's gonna very interesting relationship with moving forward."
    "Because he's taking her, you get the sense that there might be something else going on here."
    "You're probably going to have a castle and a prince and a princess if you're looking at a fairy tale. We wanted to give these sort of, fundamental, not cosmetic, but, sort of prerequisite elements."
    "But in this scene Rey is drawn to this place (inside Maz's castle), almost like Cinderella." (=> JJ calls Kylo a prince)

    - JJ Abrams

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of Reylo myself, but you simply can't deny the fact that JJ hinted at it from the get go.

    Furthermore Rian finished writing TLJ before TFA even hit the theaters. So there was no fan theory pleasing... Rian built on Reylo because it was set up by the previous movie and not the fans.

    Well its definitey bold. Though representing the only two pregnant women in star wars as immaculate would be a rather weird choice for me. I also didn't know that the touching of hands was according to RJ the "closest to a sex we will ever see in Star Wars."

    But come to think of it: when they touch, he does use orgasmic imagery:


    I hope I'm not reading to much in this in reference to RJ's comment :p
