Did Bluey’s Parents Have a Miscarriage?
The popular children’s show, Bluey, has a lot of fans wondering whether Bluey’s parents had a miscarriage between Bluey and her sister, Bingo.
There is no firm answer to this question, but many Bluey theorists seem to think the show hinted at a miscarriage. One example of this is a scene in season two where Bingo finds out that her parents were going to have a baby.
The parents seem sad when they explain it to her, which some took as a sign that something had gone wrong. Additionally, Bluey’s parents never mention the lost pregnancy whenever Bingo expresses an interest in having another sibling.
If Bluey‘s creators have indeed added a miscarriage to their storyline, it could be a powerful symbol of resilience in the face of grief. Miscarriage affects many families, yet it is often an overlooked topic in media and literature.
By introducing this subject with a show aimed at children, Bluey could be helping to normalize the experience of losing a pregnancy, and allowing kids and adults alike to process their own experiences.
Did Bluey’s parents have a miscarriage? Unfortunately, we cannot confirm this one way or the other. But whatever Bluey’s creators had in mind, they did a great job of making a show that is relatable and educational—for both children and adults.
