Gypsy Rose Blanchard has been spotted for the first time since her prison release on Thursday, December 28.

The now 32-year-old spent the last seven years in prison for co-conspiring to kill her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. Gypsy Rose was released on parole and spent her first night in a Chillicothe, Missouri budget hotel with her husband, Ryan Anderson. 

Ryan and Gypsy got married last June in a prison wedding.

Later on that same day that Gypsy was released from Correctional Center in Missouri, she was seen leaving her hotel room alongside her husband. The 32-year-old was carrying bags, of what appeared to be grocery items and toiletries, as well as rolling out luggage.

Gypsy then went to a local store and purchased some new shoes. It is then expected that she and her husband will head to his house as she previously stated she planned on moving in with her husband following her release.

Shortly before her prison release, Gypsy Rose Blanchard admitted that if she “had another chance to redo everything," she isn't sure if she would go back to when she was a child and reach out to any family members regarding the lies her mother told.

"I don’t know if I would go back to when I was a child and tell my aunts and uncles that I’m not sick and mommy makes me sick," she told PEOPLE, “Or, if I would travel back to just the point of that conversation with Nick and tell him, ‘You know what, I’m going to go tell the police everything.’ I kind of struggle with that.”

Gypsy's mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, abused her daughter -- physically, mentally, and emotionally. Not only did she convince Gypsy that she suffered from various medical conditions, but she also convinced doctors to perform unnecessary surgeries on her throughout the years.

Over the years, Gypsy Rose had undergone multiple surgeries, which were later deemed unnecessary. Some of those surgeries included gastrointestinal operations, eye procedures, and the removal of her salivary glands.

Following her prison sentence, and just shortly before she was released, Gypsy admitted that “nobody will ever hear me say I’m glad [my mom is] dead, or I’m proud of what I did. I regret it every single day.”
