Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) and Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) are finally adjusting to life as a married couple. While things got off to a rocky start for the couple (they were attacked and nearly killed during their honeymoon), it’s clear the Chicago Fire stars are a great match.

As die-hard Fire fans can attest, though, Kidd and Severide don’t agree on everything. They are both stubborn when it comes to their perspective, and will often butt heads when it comes to dealing with a professional situation. They’ve gotten better at it, but it’s still present in the new season 11 episodes.

So how does this stubbornness manifest when it comes to starting a family?

Will Stella Kidd get pregnant in Chicago Fire season 11?

Well, for one, Kidd and Severide are workaholics. Both are incredibly dedicated to their careers, and have even jeopardized their relationship at times due to great opportunities outside of Chicago. It makes sense that they would want to wait to start a family so they don’t have to lose a step in the field.

While this would suffice as a reason, the recent episode “Pink Cloud” provided additional context as to why we shouldn’t expect a Stellaride pregnancy anytime soon. The episode had a storyline involving a teenager and her relationship with her abusive mother, and the couple’s differing reactions to the case said a lot about where they are both at with the notion of family.

Kidd immediately took a personal interest in the teenager’s case, and even watched after her while the details of the case were being sorted out. It’s the most maternal we’ve ever seen her, and it made it clear that she’s started to consider the possibility of actually becoming a mother.

Severide, on the other hand, took a much apathetic stance. While he was supportive of the teen, he didn’t take as much of an interest in the case and preferred to keep a distance from the details that Kidd latched onto.

This narrative decision not only made for an interesting dramatic split, but it subtly illustrated that Kidd and Severide are on different pages when it comes to raising children. The former is open to the idea and the latter is still reluctant to take that step in his own life. Neither is good or bad, just different.

It’ll be interesting to see how these perspectives and develop over the course of season 11.
