Is Kelli Giddish pregnant?

Based on Kelli’s current Instagram feed, there is no telling if the actor is currently with child.

Kelli is already mom to two kids with ex-husband Lawrence Faulborn. The couple married in 2015 and welcomed son Ludo in October of that same year, followed by son Charlie in November 2018. In fact, Ludo appeared on SVU as one of Rollins's daughters.

The couple divorced in 2018, and Kelli went on to marry Beau Richards in November 2021. You can find some adorable photos of her husband and her kiddos on her Instagram account.

Before Rollins left the unit, fans saw her and her longtime love ADA Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) jump the broom at their courthouse wedding. So, Carisi is likely the father of Amanda’s unborn child.

Keep in mind, Amanda left SVU to become an adjunct professor of criminal behavior at Fordham University. Given Amanda’s career pivot, it makes sense that the writing team brought her back in some capacity.
