    Lena Dunham Has Hinted At An "Explicit Birth Scene" In "Girls" Season 4

    She's been watching Call The Midwife as research.

    Lena Dunham was in London this week on tour for her debut book, Not That Kind Of Girl.

    Last night she was interviewed by her friend and fellow author Caitlin Moran (How To Build A Girl) at the Southbank Centre in front of a packed house.

    Back in August, when Dunham announced the event, she tweeted this:

    And if someone can get the cast of Call The Midwife to attend my UK book event, well, your reward awaits you in heaven <3

    She told the audience: "I started watching Call The Midwife this past summer because I was actually researching for a scene in Girls–spoiler alert–because there are these really great, explicit birth scenes on the show."

    "I watched every episode in the course of three days. I was sick for two of them, and then fake-sick for the third. I loved it.

    "I tweeted about it and I was sent a special and exclusive Call The Midwife Bicycle Bell. I don't have a bicycle so I just kind of walk around my house like *ding ding* at my dog and my boyfriend and whoever else will accept the behaviour."

    Moran had a surprise in store for her friend: "I sent some emails, and now in the audience we have Jessica Raine, Helen George, Charlotte Ritchie (who will appear in the new series), and Miranda Hart."

    A visibly delighted Dunham said: "I’m really thrilled, thank you for being here, ladies. It means more than you’ll ever know.”

    At the end of Season 3 we found out Adam's sister Caroline was pregnant.

    So will there be an "explicit birth scene" for Caroline in Girls Season 4? Guess we'll find out when the new season airs in January.

    Until then, here's a Season 4 teaser.

    Edited to clarify that the character of Caroline Sackler is pregnant, as noted in the comments, not one of the four main characters.
