Teen bride turned mom-to-be! Courtney Stodden is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Doug Hutchison, the reality star confirms.
“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,” Stodden, 21, tells Us Weekly. “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.”
The happy news comes as an early anniversary present for the couple, who tied the knot on May 20, 2011, when Stodden was just 16 years old. Hutchison is 34 years her senior. The couple, who appeared on Couples Therapy in 2012, briefly split in November 2013 before reuniting in August 2014.
“Doug is wonderful,” Stodden, who most recently appeared alongside her estranged mother, Krista Keller, on Lifetime’s The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition, told Us of her hubby in 2011. “He picks up my coffee beans that I spill on the floor. He picks up my foundation. He picks up my feathers from my big robe that I wear. My high heels are all over. I have a wonderful life, a wonderful husband.”
