Amanda Bynes is pregnant with her first child and excited about what the future holds, however the star is also currently receiving treatment in a psychiatric facility and her family is worried about the extra stress a pregnancy could add to the situation.
A message from Bynes’ Instagram account was posted Tuesday night to her 400,000 followers announcing that she was expecting a baby.
“Baby on board!” the message read alongside a photo of a sonogram. The sonogram was dated March 17 and had Bynes’ name at the top of the photo.
Sources familiar with the situation tell The Blast the former “All That” star is indeed pregnant, and that her family only recently found out. We’re told she is “weeks along,” and had allegedly been trying for a child with her fiance, Paul Michael. As for her reaction to the situation, we’re told Bynes was very excited and looking forward to raising a baby. However, there is much more at play going on, as the star is also currently receiving treatment after being ordered by the court in connection with her conservatorship.
We’re told Bynes is currently on lockdown in a psychiatric facility in Pasadena, where she will be receiving live-in treatment for at least 30 days.
As we previously reported, Bynes’ family, and her fiance, attended a court hearing on the current state of the “All That” star’s mental health. After the private meeting was held, the court thought it was in Bynes’ best interest to check into a psychiatric facility for a month of treatment. Bynes originally agreed to go, but then showed hesitation and took off.
She eventually made the right decision and entered treatment, but the pregnancy has added another stressor to the situation and we’re told those closest to the star are seriously worried about how the pregnancy could affect her mental state.
Amanda Bynes announced her engagement to Paul back in February, after the two got engaged on Valentine’s Day. It’s unclear how long they had been dating before the engagement, but we’re told they met while attending AA.
“Engaged to tha love of my life,” Bynes revealed on Instagram while showing off a huge diamond ring.
The milestones in Bynes’ life should be something to be celebrated, however the star is currently under conservatorship as she has struggled with mental health for years, and those closest to her are worried that things may be spinning out of control.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out in the next few weeks, especially after the former Nickelodeon star is released from treatment.
