American actress Emma Rose Kenney. She is known for her portrayal of “Debbie” Gallagher on “Shameless” (2011–2021) and “Harris Conner-Healy” in “Roseanne” (10th season) and “The Conners” (spinoff continuation). Some fans of the show Shameless, on which Emma has appeared since she was a child, are concerned that she is expecting.
Is Emma Kenney Expecting a Child?
The rumors that Emma is pregnant and trying to keep it under wraps on the show are likely, not true. In the most recent Instagram post, which celebrated Emma’s 23rd birthday, the birthday girl appears to be inebriated. Emma drinking alcohol to celebrate her birthday is not inappropriate, but it does raise suspicions that she is not pregnant.
Instead, it appears that the pregnancy rumors are just that: rumors. Not that 23 is too young to start a family, but it doesn’t appear that Emma is actively planning for parenthood just yet. Instead, she seems preoccupied with her youth, despite working on one of the most popular sitcoms on broadcast television right now.

Exactly Where the Speculation Began that Emma Was Expecting Is a Mystery
It’s unclear where the speculation that Emma is pregnant initially emerged, but plenty of people are wondering if she is. Perhaps they stem from viewers’ observations of a shift in her positioning in recent episodes, but they can’t be traced back to an official statement she made or anything the show has revealed about potential alterations to Emma’s part.

Kenney had a number of cameos in both independent and Hollywood-produced shorts and TV movies. As the youngest filmmaker ever to make it to the finals of the New Jersey International Film Festival at Rutgers University, she made history in 2009.
Kenney portrayed William H. Macy’s on-screen daughter Debbie Gallagher in the comedy-drama Shameless. Kenney, then a sixth-grader at Park Middle School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, won the part when he was only 10.
Kenney’s casting in Roseanne’s revival tenth season, which premiered on ABC on March 27, 2018, was announced in September 2017. She plays the role of the protagonist’s granddaughter, Harris Conner Healy, in the comedy. Kenney co-starred with Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert, the latter of whom played Kenney’s on-screen mother, Darlene Conner Healy. Once the revival had completed its first season, ABC decided to cancel it on May 29, 2018.
Consequently, ABC decided to launch a spin-off of Roseanne titled The Conners, which would not star Roseanne Barr but would feature the rest of the original cast, including Kenney. The debut of The Conners occurred on October 16th, 2018.
