Babies and Marriage Proposals Are the Big Haul on ‘Deadliest Catch’

On Deadliest Catch, Captain Jake Anderson and his wife, Jenna, received some unsettling news during a trip to the obstetrician. Based on some ultrasound measurements, they learned their baby may be born with a birth defect.

The baby’s neck fold, known as the nuchal translucency, was a little larger than it was supposed to be. The doctor told the Andersons, “It could be indicative of something like Down syndrome.” The hospital ran some blood tests and fortunately they all came back negative, so it looks like the baby will be healthy.

While all of that was going on, across town at Captain Sig Hansen‘s house, a proposal was happening. Clark Pederson is not only a greenhorn on Hansen’s boat; he’s also the boyfriend of Sig’s daughter Mandy. Clark proposed to Mandy, and she said yes.

So it looks like both captains are happily adding family members to their crews.

Deadliest Catch airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
