Welcome to the world, Baby Hawkins-Nevin!
At today’s finale of the fourth season of The Resident (Fox, 8 / 7c), Conrad and Nic finally meet their little daughter – and if you’re concerned that Nic’s work could go wrong during the episode, let TVLine’s exclusive look put you at ease.
In the clip above, the new parents hold their little girl for the first time, with Conrad noting that “she is beautiful, like her mother”. (With all the bliss after giving birth, Conrad and Nic don’t seem to have decided on a name for their bundle of joy yet.)
The milestone feels especially sweet after Conrad and Nic’s previous struggles with the birth of a child: Nic got pregnant for the first time years ago, but ultimately had a miscarriage. This pregnancy was briefly at risk when Nic was stabbed to death by an aggressive Chastain patient and forced her to undergo emergency surgery. So what if Nic proudly notices that Baby Girl has 10 fingers and 10 toes in our eyes? This announcement has been a long time coming.
The resident fans can also breathe a sigh of relief that the finale of the fourth season will not be doubled as a series finale. Earlier this week, Fox renewed the medical drama for season five, which will begin at 8 a.m. this fall in its current Tuesday window. However, Morris Chestnut will have a greatly reduced presence as Dr. Barrett Cain after starring in Fox’s upcoming family drama Our Kind of People.
