Former child star and Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes has announced that she is expecting her first child. Late Tuesday evening, Amanda and her fiancé, Paul Michael, posted an ultrasound picture on their Instagram accounts.
Based on the ultrasound, it was very early in Amanda’s pregnancy. She is just 6-weeks pregnant. Hours later, the couple both deleted their posts.
Amanda and Paul have had an on-again-off-again relationship. They became engaged this past Valentine’s Day weekend. The duo was spotted packing on the PDA outside of an IHOP after the announcement and declaring their love all over social media. However, shortly thereafter, it was reported they had called off their engagement. About a week and a half before the pregnancy announcement, it appeared the couple was back together after Amanda posted a photo with Paul and captioned it, “My Love.”
After the post, Paul revealed to Page Six that the couple hadn’t broken up, but that their Instagram accounts were hacked and they were unable to get back into them.
The former actress, who recently celebrated 14 months of sobriety, is now revealed to be seeking treatment for mental health, just a few hours after sharing the news of her pregnancy. Her attorney, David Esquibias, said that her decision to seek treatment was related to her mental health troubles. He denied any validity to rumors that Amanda was suffering from drug or alcohol-related addiction issues.
Hopefully, Amanda is getting the treatment she needs to get her mental health in order as she begins preparing for the very exciting milestone of welcoming her first baby into the world with her fiancé.
