The magic pregnancy is a staple science fiction and fantasy fiction. Whether it's the impending birth of a savior, the coming of some form of Antichrist, or some kind of experiment, speculative fiction has been the home of a lot of ridiculous stories of pregnancy and birth. Here are the most absurd ones.
Last week, Witches of East End premiered on Lifetime, and it gave us Joanna, a witch cursed with immortality and perpetual motherhood. Not just the kind of perpetual motherhood where she always has children, but the kind where she's cursed to birth, raise, and watch the deaths of the exact same two girls over and over again. Which would probably take the sting out of their deaths, especially since it's implied that they aren't exactly ignorant about their multiple lives, what with the mother needing to cast a spell them to forget about being witches. Anyway, the second the girls die, Joanna is immediately nine-months pregnant. Like, inflating balloon insta-pregnant.
