Just when “This Is Us” fans think they have a hunch about what’s coming ahead, they’re hit with a wallop.

Tuesday’s installment of the hit NBC drama series divulged that Kate (Chrissy Metz) is six weeks pregnant, with the reveal following boyfriend Toby (Chris Sullivan) showing concern over her obsession with eating right and exercising.

Needless to say, the huge twist for the Pearson family that is still coping with the loss of patriarch Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) led to numerous stunned reactions from fans on social media.

“Kate news you never told me that’s a huge mic drop moment,” one fan wrote.

“So help me, if Kate has a baby boy and names it Jack, I may have to call in sick the next day,” tweeted another supporter.
