In an unexpected turn of events, Gypsy Rose Blanchard has announced that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Ken Urker.

Blanchard, 32, who endured years of medical abuse at the hands of her mother Dee Dee and played a role in her 2015 death, shared her exciting news in a YouTube video titled “I’m Pregnant, My Journey So Far” on Tuesday, July 9.

I know the rumors have been flying around for quite some time now,” Gypsy said in the video, “and I’m happy to announce that I am 11 weeks pregnant.”

She expressed excitement about the unplanned pregnancy and looked forward to welcoming their baby in January 2025.

Addressing concerns from her followers, Gypsy Rose Blanchard acknowledged the doubts some might have about her readiness for motherhood.

“I don’t know if anyone’s really ready to be a mother,” she said.

With emotion, she spoke about her desire to provide her child with the love and care she missed in her own childhood.

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

Blanchard’s journey to this moment has been tumultuous.

While serving time in prison for her role in her mother’s death, she began a relationship with Ken Urker, initially as pen pals.

Urker proposed in 2018, but their relationship ended before her release in 2023.

At the time, Blanchard was married to Ryan Anderson, whom she wed while in prison.

Following her release, her marriage to Anderson dissolved, and she reconnected with Urker.

In May, Blanchard opened up to PEOPLE about rekindling her romance with Urker.

“Ken and I reconnected as friends,” she explained. “We had kept a friendship for the longest time. He was in a relationship. I was with Ryan, and so we were living different lives with respect to our partners.”

Blanchard’s stepmother, Kristy Blanchard, played a significant role in bringing the couple back together.

“It’s all my fault, and I’ll gladly take the blame. I wanted them back together,” she told PEOPLE. “Gypsy will finally get her happily ever after.”

Urker is moving to New Orleans to be with Blanchard, and the couple is eagerly anticipating the arrival of their baby.

Despite her challenging past, Blanchard is confident in her ability to be a loving mother.

“I have learned what not to do. I have no concerns about my parenting when it comes to that,” she affirmed.

Someone said Gypsy wasn’t going to let her husband stand in the way of her becoming a baby mama.
