UPDATE: Amanda has mysteriously deleted the sonogram picture. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! If this is a hoax, I’m going to be very sad. I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you!
Well, thank f*cking God some celebrity decided to announce a surprise pregnancy and give us all something else to talk about aside from COVID-19. Seriously, earlier today I was thinking to myself how Kylie Jenner really needs to take one for the team and give us a media frenzy to distract ourselves with. Thankfully, though, Kylie doesn’t have to give Stormi a sibling, because another celebrity answered the call (that no one but me put out). Amanda Bynes uploaded a picture of a sonogram on Instagram, effectively announcing that she’s pregnant. Wow, I did not see that coming.
Amanda posted the sonogram on Tuesday night (but time is a construct at this point so who f*cking cares that it was 10pm, not like I was doing anything else anyway), with the caption “Baby on board!” Surprising no one, she disabled comments on the picture, because we would all be freaking tf out.

Now, I’m a person who knows literally zero (0) things about pregnancy, so my initial reaction was to check in with a few coworkers who have given birth to see if this sonogram was even, like, a thing. Like, I couldn’t really see anything or tell what I was looking at. Did Amanda just have a food baby and decide to go in for an ultrasound? (No judgment, been there.) They said that judging by the sonogram, she’s likely very early along—like, six to eight weeks. So, congratulations are in order!
Amanda’s fiancé Paul also posted the sonogram picture to his Instagram, writing “baby in the making” for the caption. I love a coordinated Instagram promo.
The pregnancy news comes shortly after Amanda seemed to indicate she and Paul had broken up, but quickly got back together. Around the time of their reconciliation, reports surfaced that there were issues with Amanda’s conservatorship, and her parents were forbidding her to marry Paul. Despite a bit of a rocky period, Paul and Amanda are still going strong, and with a baby on the way, I really hope this situation gets figured out.
Once again, congratulations to Amanda and Paul, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much for giving me something to care about for the next nine months.
