T.J. Miller has been on a roll lately. The former WWE star, who has appeared in several of the film’s supporting cast, is about to become a father along with his girlfriend, Jessica Alba. As these two newlyweds prepare to welcome their baby, the question arises, how do they decide if they are going to give up their careers along for their baby’s well-being?

In reality, Miller’s comments are actually quite positive, despite the negative connotations that sometimes come with the word “maternity.” Miller’s stance is likely echoed by the other cast members who are going to have to make the best decisions about whether to continue their careers, or leave one for the sake of their baby.
