Mel and Jack wanted to grow their family
After suffering fertility issues previously, Mel Monroe (played by Alexandra Breckenridge) suffered a miscarriage and lost her baby daughter with Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson).
Nonetheless, the couple still wanted to try and grow their brood but fans will have to see whether this would be through surrogacy or adoption.
New Zealand-born star Henderson told Tudum: “[Parenthood is] a new dream that’s just ripped away from [Jack] so suddenly, so he puts a lot of onus on the idea of then figuring out another way to have this family.
“In his heart, I think he’s married to this idea that they’re going to have children no matter how that comes.”
American star Breckenridge admitted Mel’s baby loss storyline in season five was “really sad” and there was “a lot of crying” during filming.
