Miranda Bailey


Being feared by her interns; being a Mom to Tuck; Ben Warren

Interns who suck up and talk back; doctors who look down on her because she’s a parent; interns who don’t pull their weight; fraternizing between attendings and interns; and being woken up on her shift when she’s trying to take a nap.

Gave birth to her first child (affectionately known as Tuck) during a bomb scare. On that same fateful day, she almost lost her husband after he suffered head trauma in a car accident on the way to the hospital to see the birth.

Bailey was married to Tucker Jones for 10 years before the couple finally decided to divorce. Since then, Bailey has dated anesthesiologist Dr. Ben Warren and, after a brief relationship with Nurse Eli, has agreed to Ben’s marriage proposal.

There is a soft side to Bailey’s ferocious character. You just have to catch her on the right day. During the shootings, Bailey came face-to-face with gunman Gary Clark, and survived.
