Kelly Taylor has a Kid in '90210'
The long-running television drama of the 1990s created by Darren Star has opened the eyes of viewers to the highs and lows of the teenage world.  The fourth series of the famous program, called 90210, has introduced many to young stars who soon took over the entertainment industry as adults.  They haven't forgotten where they came from, as these former Beverly Hills, 90210 cast members return to reprise their roles in the new spin-off.  Rumor has it that the sparks will fly once again for some of these beloved characters.

Jennie Garth joins Tori Spelling and Shannen Doherty in the new Rob Thomas-created 90210.  Garth returns as the formerly self-absorbed and now mature character, Kelly Taylor.  Spelling and Doherty will also be returning for their previous roles as Donna Martin and Brenda Walsh respectively as well.  There's been a lot of speculation concerning romances of Kelly, Donna and Brenda.  Fans of the first installment of the 90210 series shouldn't get their hopes up for these characters to relive old flames. 

The ancient love stories aren't going to die in the pages of old scripts though.  The writers of 90210 have managed to maintain the show's continuity after its three other predecessors.  They've added the twist of Kelly Taylor, now the guidance counselor of West Beverly High, as the mother of a four year old kid.  There hasn't been any news if the father is Beverly Hills, 90210's Brandon or Dylan, but it has been confirmed that a child has been put in the hands of the formerly spoiled Kelly. 

In the usual soap opera style of the ‘90s, romances just keep on building up.  Kelly Taylor also has her eyes on the 20-something lacrosse coach of the school, Ryan Matthews.  The character will be played by Dirt's Ryan Eggold, also seen on series like Veronica Mars

Jennie Garth was reported to be the first to sign up when production for 90210 was announced.  She has previously worked on The WB's What I Like About You, playing the character Valerie Tyler opposite actress Amanda Bynes

The romance of Kelly Taylor and Ryan Matthews can be finally be witnessed on 90210's two-hour premiere on The CW on September 2 at 8pm.
