7 Months Out of Jail, Gypsy Rose Blanchard Announces Pregnancy


It’s an unusual story, but we’ve been obsessed with Gypsy Rose Blanchard ever since she was released from jail in December 2023. Blanchard became well-known due to her involvement in her mother Dee Dee’s murder, a true story also depicted in the series The Act, starring Joey King.

Now, at 32, Gypsy announced she was 11 weeks pregnant in a nine minute YouTube video on Tuesday, calling it a “blessing”. This news comes just three months after she filed for divorce from her then-husband Ryan Anderson.

In the video titled “I’m Pregnant, My Journey So Far” posted on Tuesday, July 9, Gypsy shared her excitement about the baby.

“I know the rumours have been flying around for quite some time now,” she started. “And I’m happy to announce that I am 11 weeks pregnant.”

“Ken and I are expecting our very first child come January of 2025,” she continued.

“This was not planned at all, it was completely unexpected, but we’re both very excited to take on this new journey of parenthood.”

Gypsy and Ken, who first connected through the prison’s pen pal program, were engaged in 2018 but broke up in 2019. They got back together after her separation from Anderson, which happened after less than two years of marriage.

Her divorce from Anderson, whom she also met and married while serving her prison sentence, is still ongoing, but that isn’t stopping her from moving forward with her life.

Gypsy Rose on Becoming a Mother

Talking about her pregnancy journey so far, Gypsy shared that she’s experiencing symptoms like food cravings and mood swings. She also talked about her excitement for motherhood and the emotions that come with it.

“Suddenly, it’s not about you,” she said. “It’s not about anything other than the tiny little life that’s inside you, that you are now in charge of protecting.”

“That little tiny life is a baby, a little tiny human that’s yours, that you have to make sure you protect, you love, you take care of,” Gypsy said through tears. “All of the things I wished I could have had when I was little. … All of the things that I wanted in a mother, I want to give to this baby.”

“I just want to be a good mother for my child, I want to be everything my mother wasn’t.”

The Story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard

Gypsy first made headlines in 2015 after her online boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, killed her mother. She pled guilty to second-degree murder and served seven years behind bars before her release in 2023.

The case gained international attention when it was revealed that Dee Dee had essentially kept her daughter prisoner, forcing her to use a wheelchair and feeding tube. Dee Dee had made Gypsy pretend for years that she was suffering from serious illnesses.

Investigators determined that Dee Dee had Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a psychological disorder where caregivers seek sympathy through the exaggerated or made-up illnesses of their children.

After her release, Gypsy has been embracing her newfound freedom, appearing in a documentary titled “Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup” and building a strong social media presence.

“I Found My Freedom”

However, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. Anderson has shared his side of the story on TikTok, detailing the breakdown of their marriage and accusing Gypsy of contacting him after their breakup.

There’s also some scepticism about her relationship with Ken, with some of her followers feeling she’s moving on too quickly.

She addressed the criticism in her YouTube video, saying: “I know that there are going to be people that feel like I’m not ready to be a mother and I just, I don’t know if anyone’s really ready to become a mother. I don’t know anybody that said, ‘OK, I’m ready. I’m doing this.’ I think, in my experience, everybody that I’ve ever talked to, they’re like, it just happened.”

“I found my freedom in a way that I never expected and I’m OK with that. Everything that has ever happened to me in my life suddenly doesn’t matter because it all led me to be who I am today and it all led me to this moment right here, right now and that’s a blessing to say that I made it,” she added.
