Padmé Amidala is one of Star Wars‘ most recognized and loved characters. Not only was she a great Senator and leader of all of her people, but she was also super bad a**. Her and Anakin Skywalker had a ‘secret’ relationship; they had to keep it a secret due to the Jedi code and rules. In franchise’s third film in The Skywalker Saga, Revenge of the Sith, Padmé is roughly 9 months pregnant with her and Anakin’s set of twins, Luke and Leia. This got many people wondering…given the timeline of the Disney+ series, The Clones Wars taking place in between Episode 2 and Episode 3, was Padmé Amidala pregnant during this series?

Do you think that Padmé Amidala was pregnant during The Clone Wars TV show?

As we all know, the TV showThe Clone Warstook place in between two of The Skywalker Saga films: Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Within this time span was the actual Clone Wars going on which brought a whole lot of war crimes, turmoil, and other problems within the galaxy. In Revenge of the Sith, Padme was set to be just around nine months pregnant as she gave birth towards the end of the film. This has many people and Clone Wars watchers wondering if Padmé was already pregnant during the show’s run.

If Padmé was already pregnant during Clone Wars then it would definitely ahd to have been towards the end of the series, say Season 7 or Season 8 because those events are the ones that truly happened the closest to Episode III.

Obviously, the TV show can only depict so much and fit so much within each episode that roughly runs for 20 – 25 minutes. The show as a whole didn’t depict absolutely everything that happened within said time frame as well, as goes with literally any other given TV show out there.

During The Clone Wars Padmé’s pregnancy is never really announced, but it definitely can be assumed given the timeline of events. Most people even had a problem with one of their conversations over hologram as Padmé is seen to be rubbing her belly, but Anakin never says or notices anything, hence, nothing really officially being announced over on the show.

Here’s what one fan had to say over on Quora:

"“The Clone Wars ended several months before the declaration of the Galactic Empire. Padmé announced her pregnancy to Anakin less than a week before the Galactic Empire’s declaration. Padmé gave birth less than a few hours after the Galactic Empire’s declaration. Yes, she was most likely pregnant.”"

With all of this being said, it’s pretty safe to assume that, yes, Senator Padmé Amidala was pregnant during (most likely) the 7th and 8th season(s) of The Clone Wars TV show, although nothing if official.
