Season 5 of Queen Sugar brought a much-needed dose of happiness to our lives. Darla Sutton (Bianca Lawson) and Ralph Angel Bordelon (Kofi Siriboe) finally got married after five tumultuous seasons that truly tested their relationship.
For a long time, Darla struggled with her addictions and demons. She and Ralph have a baby together (a son named Blue), although we later learned that Blue is not Ralph's biological son and that he was likely conceived when Darla was sexually assaulted.
Ralph and Darla nearly broke things off and got involved in an ugly custody battle, but after all was said and done, the two end up together. Now, fans are wondering if Darla and Ralph will expand their family in Season 7. Read on to get the deets.
The 'Queen Sugar' Season 6 trailer revealed that Darla is expecting her second child.
Baby on board! Fans have been waiting with bated breath for Darla and Ralph to become parents again, and it looks like the wait is over! In the teaser for Queen Sugar Season 6, not only does Darla appear to have a large stomach area, but she appears to be sporting a pregnancy glow.
"The OB appointment is today, and we'll find out if we're having a boy or girl," Ralph tells Darla as he kisses her stomach and a later clip showing them at the doctor's office.
While things have been rocky for the pair in the past, it's great to see them both move forward and grow in their relationship. And while it appears that Ralph may have some trouble heading his way after claims of bodies being buried on his land, the couple appears to be stronger than ever.
A clip from Season 6, Episode 1 (via Queen Sugar's Instagram page) reveals that Ralph has purchased a new crib for the baby, even though Darla has reservations about their finances. But Ralph assures Darla that the harvest money will sustain them.
"I'm not taking any chances with your or the baby," Ralph tells Darla. "We got the discrimination money coming in. Let me do something special for somebody special, OK?" We can see why fans are enamored with Ralph!
Is Bianca Lawson pregnant in real life?
Bianca keeps her personal life--especially her romantic life--largely out of her fans' reach. You won't find the answers you're looking for on her social media profiles, especially when it comes to dating and pregnancy rumors.
While many fans have speculated that Bianca may have been pregnant at the same time as her character, the rumors remain just that. The actor is likely single at the moment, and does not appear to be following Darla's footsteps into parenthood anytime soon.
Bianca Lawson previously admitted that Blue needs a sibling.
On Feb. 16, 2021, Bianca Lawson sat down with Hollywood Life to discuss Season 5 and admitted that it would be nice for Blue (who's 6 years old) to have a sibling. After being asked if Darla and Ralph's family might expand, Bianca replied, "You never know. You never know. I mean, I think that would be a really beautiful thing."
She continued, "Yeah, Blue does need a sibling." At the time, she also did hint that her character will continue to progress.
"I think it’s already going to happen," Bianca said when asked about revealing more layers of Darla. "I think the progression of her journey this season is already kind of scratching that surface and entering into that. So if I tell you, it kind of gives that away. We’re about to go and start shooting Season 6 in a couple of weeks."
She continued, "I haven’t seen the scripts for that but based on how Season 5 ends, I’m really, really interested to see this new chapter of her life and what that brings out in her."
In Jan. 2021, it was revealed that Queen Sugar was renewed for another season, so it sounds like we really do have a lot left to explore.
"What a joy and an honor to continue the stories of Queen Sugar with our partners at OWN and Warner Bros. On behalf of every producer, editor, costumer, grip, writer, cast member and all departments involved in making this series, we're delighted to delve into a sixth season and to bring our beautiful audience more of the Bordelon family," show creator Ava DuVernay said.
