Okay, wait… was she really canonically pregnant for several years?
She must have been now that I think about it.
Anyway, she was also Frea from the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC and Death’s Wife on Regular Show! That’s pretty rad.
Technically since the event in Blackrock Depths (where she’s hanging out with Emperor Dagran and the group of heroes is sent to kill him and rescue her) can still happen, she’s still pregnant and has been so for almost a decade, but she isn’t supposed to be canonically pregnant for much longer than I assume the average Dwarf pregnancy in WoW. She announced her pregnancy, stayed with the Dark Irons, had her baby and remained away from Ironforge until she returned to take the throne (and you can now see baby Dagran by the Council of Three Hammers in Ironforge). With the vagaries of time passage in WoW it’s kind of hard to say how long a time period is supposed to have happened, in canon. If anything, it’s her son’s actual age that’s in question (like how old Anduin should actually be).
