Ryan McPartlin confirmed Captain Awesome's mom Honey Woodcomb, played by Morgan Fairchild, will return this season to see the birth of her grandchild:
Mom does come back. It's funny, because Mom and Ellie have to learn how to deal with their new roles that each one is going to play as a mother and a grandmother. So that creates a bit of fun drama."
Sarah Lancaster also suggested that, once again, Honey won't feel Ellie is good enough for her son. Fairchild will appear in episode 6, according to NBC.
