Meanwhile, in Julia Quinn's "The Duke and I," the first book that inspired the Netflix series, Simon and Daphne's first child is a girl they name Amelia. They then have two more daughters, Belinda and Caroline, before welcoming two sons, David and Edward.
Simon ultimately realizes that he wants to live for himself instead of his father. Four years later, Daphne gives birth to their fourth child and first son, David. Simon knows he will love his son no matter what, just as he does his three daughters.
The duke also jokes, after the birth of their first child in the season's final (and very affecting) scene, that he “believes” the child's name “must begin with the letter A,” as a nod to the first names of the eight Bridgerton children following alphabetic symmetry.
At first, Simon refuses to have children with Daphne because of the difficult relationship he has with his own father. Eventually, Daphne gets him to see that he doesn't have to repeat the mistakes of his father. Daphne and Simon have five children together: Amelia, Belinda, Caroline, David, and Edward.
During season two, Daphne casually reveals baby Basset's first name - Augie - which proves they stuck with Simon's request to follow the Bridgerton family tradition of alphabetizing kids' names.
Do Simon and Daphne get a divorce? Bridgerton then ends with the pair of them welcoming their first child, a boy who is one day due to become the next Duke of Hastings. After this rocky start to their marriage, the books reveal that Daphne and Simon stay together for good.
By the end of season one, Daphne and Simon have reconciled their differences. Their "happily ever after" ending features the the birth of a new baby, August (nicknamed Auggie). In season two, Daphne helps Anthony through his marriage pursuits.
Francesca Bridgerton is the first major character on Netflix's hit Bridgerton to be recast: actress Hannah Dodd will be taking over the role from Ruby Stokes starting in season three.
And clever mother that she was, she made it a little easier by using the alphabet in the process: Her eldest child's name begins with "A" (Anthony), her second child's with "B" (Benedict), and so on. This also makes it easier to figure out the age order when watching Bridgerton!
Daphne and Niles have their first child, David, in the final episode of the series, "Goodnight, Seattle". (He is named after the show's co-creator David Angell who died in the September 11 attacks.)
Ultimately, Simon decides he doesn't want to be alone and abandons the vow he made to never have children. In the closing scene of Season 1 of Bridgerton, Daphne and Simon welcome their first child.
Eloise does not become pregnant in Quinn's second book, but she does become a stepmum in the fifth book titled To Sir Phillip, With Love, where she is considered a “spinster” because she is unmarried at the age of 28.
Francesca Bridgerton is the sixth Bridgerton child and third daughter.
Actress Ruby Stokes had to depart the season midway through filming.
The sixth Bridgerton child is played by Ruby Stokes. She was also absent for most of the first season. Stokes had to pull out of filming due to prior commitments. Now showrunner Chris Van Dusen explained why Francesca only appears occasionally.
In author Julia Quinn's Bridgerton book series, Kate and Anthony welcome four children: Edmund, Miles, Charlotte and Mary. They also have a dog named Newton. Ashley confirmed in March that she'll be returning for the show's upcoming third season.
Eloise spends the entire first season (rightfully) complaining about how, as a woman, all she can do is get married and have children. Fans can check out the fifth book, "To Sir Phillip, With Love," to see what happens to Eloise as she grows up, but we'll be interested to see how her story plays out in season two.
However, the bee seems to symbolize Edmund and how his death has significantly affected who Anthony is now. It's telling that the opening credits of the show include a beehive, for example. Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony on the series, even wore several bee pins while promoting the new season.
During season two, Daphne casually reveals baby Basset's first name — Augie — which proves they stuck with Simon's request to follow the Bridgerton family tradition of alphabetizing kids' names. Perhaps Augie is a nickname for a longer Regency-era-worthy name like Augustus or Augustin?
At the Bridgerton ending, Simon and Daphne welcome their first child. This means that even though the viewers did not get to see Daphne being clearly pregnant, she still got pregnant and welcomed her child with Simon towards the ending of season 1.
According to the novel, To Sir Phillip, With Love, she actually ends up marrying Sir Phillip Crane.
Violet and her daughter, Hyacinth, survived, but Violet was in a deep state of sadness. She lamented how she wished that she had died in childbirth so she could be with Edmund. She said that Edmund was her air, and without him, there was no air.
Though they have a deep connection, their marriage is rocky as Simon doesn't want to have children due to his growing up with an abusive father. Eventually, Simon makes peace with his past and the two reconcile their relationship. The season ends with Daphne giving birth to their first child, a baby boy.
Regé explained himself that he quit because it felt 'like a limited series' to him, however rumours have since emerged that he left because he didn't like what was planned for his character in future. He said after his exit was announced: “It's a one-season arc.
Eloise ends up with Phillip Crane
However, right now it seems that fans are very much rooting for Eloise and Theo to get together, with one writing: "We need rich girl and commoner boy lovers trope for Eloise and Theo," while another added: "I don't care about Eloise's storyline in the books.
