The teen bride is growing up in front of our very eyes.
Courtney Stodden announced she’s pregnant with her first child on Monday (May 16, 2016). Speaking with Us Weekly, the Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition star confirmed that she’s currently expecting her first child with husbandDoug Hutchison.
“It’s a bittersweet time for me right now. I’m dealing with a lot of stress and emotions surrounding life and its ups and downs,” the 21-year-old said. “Doug and I weren’t planning on going public with this so soon. I’m only four weeks along in my pregnancy. But some things are out of your control.”
Stodden married Hutchison, 55, on May 20, 2011 when she was only 16. The couple briefly split in 2013 after Stodden decided she wanted to experience her teenage years solo, but reconciled the following year. Stodden told Celebuzz this March that their separation was “110 percent to do” to do with her age and wanting to “be free and spread my wings and have fun and party.”
Currently, the couple are dealing with Stodden’s estrangement from her mother, Krista Keller. According to Stodden, she had broken off contact with her mom after the former manager had fallen in love with Hutchison.
“[Doug] was very angry because he had never been put in a position like that. He knew how much I love my mom and how much I trusted my mom,” Stodden told us. “It was really awful and Doug was just very angry with her. I’m not going to lie: He still is. He’s just very mad at her because she attempted to sabotage a lot — not only my marriage, but other elements in my life as well. It was just a really hard time.”
