In Underworld Awakening Selene is captured and cryonically frozen after a bomb grenade hit her and Michael underwater.

She awakes 12 years later to find out she has a daughter, and apparently Michael is the biological father.

But I can't recollect that they actually ever explained where the daughter came from? Was Selene pregnant when they caught her? Or was the baby produced in the lab with DNA from both captives?

Maybe I just missed that part, I hope someone can clear that up.

Ok maybe the title should rather read: "Was Selene pregnant?" I am familiar with the general way how this works. ;) –  atticae Apr 19 '12 at 14:06
Well, you see, when two people love each other they... –  DForck42 Apr 19 '12 at 15:27
Well, Selene did do it with Michael after she almost burned to death in the truck in the big warehouse in Underworld: Evolution. So that would explain a lot. –  user6070 Sep 9 '13 at 8:16

Eve is the three-way hybrid daughter of Selene and Michael Corvin, through whom she is a descendant of Alexander Corvinus. In Underworld: Awakening, she tells Selene that her names is Subject 2. She was born without her parents' knowledge during their 12-year captivity in Antigen. The scientists in the facility told her that her parents were dead. After her escape, Selene discovers that she had given birth to Eve during her unconscious state. Being pursued by both humans and Lycans because of her unique origin, and despite Selene's attempts to shield her from the dangers around them. Although never referred to as "Eve" in the film, the name has caught on among fans of the series. She is portrayed by India Eisley.

These are the details from Wikipedia.

I don’t understand why this was accepted, it doesn’t answer the question. The closest it comes is by assuming that if Selene was already pregnant, she knew about it which of course isn’t guaranteed (especially for someone busy fighting all the time). –  Synetech Dec 8 '12 at 1:22
@Synetech have you missed the highlighted words. –  Ankit Sharma Dec 8 '12 at 8:29
No, I did not; in fact I am talking specifically about them. The lines indicates that Selene didn’t know that Eve was born, but it says nothing about Selene knowing whether she was pregnant or not. She could have been pregnant already or the scientists could have extracted DNA and made her in a Petri dish. –  Synetech Dec 8 '12 at 15:06
It was never explained in movie or in any interview –  Ankit Sharma Dec 9 '12 at 9:40
It was never explained in movie or in any interview Then that is the answer. ;-) –  Synetech Dec 9 '12 at 15:10
