Gypsy Rose Blanchard starts a new beginning again.

The 32-year-old recently announced that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Ken Urker.

“I’m happy to announce that I’m 11 weeks pregnant,” Blanchard said in a July 9 YouTube video. “Ken and I are expecting our very first child in January 2025. We are both very excited. This was not planned at all, it was completely unexpected.”

I'm pregnant, my journey so far

And Blanchard’s surprising news comes just over three months after she filed for divorce from her ex Ryan Anderson, and then began dating Urker again after their first engagement in 2018.

“We’re both very excited to start this new journey of parenthood,” Blanchard added. “I’ve already experienced the symptoms. When I first found out I was pregnant, the first thing I noticed was the cravings.”

The 32-year-old explained that the first sign she might have expected was her craving for orange juice.

“I didn’t think about it,” Blanchard recalled, noting that she had visited a fertility specialist because of the problems she was having. “When my period didn’t come, I thought I was having trouble ovulating.”

Since completing her sentence for second-degree murder in December for the 2015 killing of her mother, Clauddine “Dee Dee” Blanchard — with whom she’s been accused of years of abusing through Munchausen by proxy syndrome — Blanchard has been giving followers insight into her life after her time behind bars. And part of that is serving as a “guiding light” for others affected by Munchausen by proxy.

“All I can do now is pick up the pieces of my life and make myself a better person than I was when I was in prison,” she told E! News. “Try to do some good in the world.”
