Jane Leeves' pregnancy
The baby that Niles and Daphne have at the end of the show is not a result of a real life pregnancy of Jane Leeves, the actress who plays Daphne. However, she was pregnant earlier in the show. In season 8 the actress got pregnant and it was simply written into the show as a weight gain.
Shortly thereafter, she gains 60 pounds, but Niles is so blinded by love that he does not notice until Daphne falls to the floor and is too heavy to get up without the help of Frasier, Niles, and Martin (who remarks that "it took three Cranes to lift her").
Unlike many other series where characters' pregnancies were written in to accommodate the actress becoming pregnant in real life, this was not the case with Roz. Hers was purely a storyline invention, Peri Gilpin was not pregnant in real life.
Daphne is pregnant, and she and Niles are keen to make an official announcement to the family over dinner.

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.
Frasier finishes his story just as the plane lands, giving viewers a surprise: Frasier was landing in Chicago, where Charlotte had moved, and not to San Francisco. He says, "Wish me luck," to Anne, then looks out of the plane window as the screen fades to black.
Rosalinda Doyle (born May 5 1963 or 1964) is a fictional character on the American television sitcom Frasier. Roz is the producer of Frasier Crane's Dr.
Daphne Sported An Actual Baby Bump
So much so that she put on weight and even sported a bulging tummy for the majority of Season 8. In real life, Jane Leeves was pregnant at the time, and Daphne getting fat was written into the show to explain her baby bump.
The pair never got together because Frasier and Roz were fundamentally different people with radically opposite interests. Frasier delighted in the high-society pursuits of opera and great literature, while Roz partook in the less sophisticated pastimes of bars and Bruce Springsteen concerts.
Jane Elizabeth Leeves (born 18 April 1961) is an English actress. Leeves played Daphne Moon on the NBC television sitcom Frasier from 1993 until 2004, for which she was nominated for an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award. She also played Joy Scroggs on TV Land's sitcom Hot in Cleveland.

She was 32 when Frasier first aired, and up until then had only appeared in a few small television series.
That means there is a difference of five years between the brothers, which aligns with the general consensus that Niles was most likely born around 1957 and Frasier was born in 1952.
John Lithgow turned down the part of Frasier Crane in 'Cheers' when he was going through a “snobbish” phase.
There appears to be an easy explanation: He went to Harvard. Niles went to Yale in Connecticut, where the mid-Atlantic accent is less common but definitely present.
One member of Frasier's cast received more fan mail than anyone else: Eddie the dog!
NEW YORK - First, the bad news: Mercedes Ruehl has, for the moment, filmed her last guest shot on "Frasier," alas. "It might be fun to go back and do one or two at some point, because I enjoyed it so much," said Ruehl.
He exhorts Niles to help him resist temptation, particularly when she goes to dinner with them wearing a very revealing new dress. Ironically, after getting drunk, it is Niles and Lilith who sleep together in her hotel room.
The town was named after Hezekiah Niles, editor of the Niles Register, a Baltimore newspaper. The town of Niles as it exists today was settled in 1827.
In fact, all those stories have been happy ones. The cast of Frasier were notably close. Grammer calls Pierce the brother he never had. Along with the late John Mahoney, who played their dad, Martin, Pierce is godfather to Leeves's son.
Also like his brother, Niles is highly intelligent. His IQ is 156, well over the Mensa threshold, and much higher than Frasier's (129).
Intended to appear for only a few episodes, Grammer's performance for the role was praised by producers, prompting them to expand his role and to increase his prominence. Later in Cheers, Frasier marries Lilith Sternin (Bebe Neuwirth) and has a son, Frederick.
By the end of the season, Roz gives birth to her new baby girl, whom she names Alice May Doyle. Late in the series, Roz finally manages to maintain a seemingly stable relationship with Roger, a garbageman.
By the end of the show, Martin reacquaints himself with Ronee Lawrence, a woman who, as a teenager babysat Frasier and Niles. They become involved in a romance, which escalates into a marriage proposal. The ceremony takes place in the final episode of the series, establishing a new chapter in Martin's life.
