It was her Gilmore Girls costar Scott Patterson who leaked to Glamor magazine that she had a child.
‘It was great to see her. She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy,’ he told the magazine.

In August 2021, Kartheiser was reportedly the subject of two internal investigations after he joined the DC series Titans for its third season.
There were at least two complaints made about his conduct on set, Deadline reported.
A representative for Kartheiser ‘vehemently’ denied the accusations made in the complaints in a statement shared with the publication on the same day.

Kartheiser first joined Titans for its third season.
He played the villain Scarecrow, who is usually paired up against Batman and was played by Cillian Murphy in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
The complaints made against him were allegedly for ‘disruptive, juvenile behavior and inappropriate comments’ and were investigated by WBTV’s Labor Relations department.
The series is filmed in Toronto, but due to Covid-19 protocols, the Burbank-based investigators were forced to speak to people on set virtually.

Sources on set claimed that the first complaint was filed in response to ‘verbal comments and outbursts’ from Kartheiser, but investigators determined that the complaints weren’t severe enough to lead to his firing.
Instead, he was given a verbal warning for the alleged behavior.
A second complaint was reportedly filed weeks later, just as production was nearing the send for the season.
Sources said that Kartheiser was assigned an on-set monitor to document his behavior as a result.
Deadline also reported that sources claimed other misconduct allegations were made against the actor that were looked into, but investigators were unable to corroborate the claims.
‘Vincent Kartheiser vehemently denies the allegations,’ his spokesperson said in a statement to the publication.
‘Warner Bros. investigated this matter and made clear to Mr. Kartheiser its expectations for behavior on the set, and he agreed to comply with their directives.’
