Courtney Stodden 'wasn't ready to get pregnant'

Courtney Stodden 'wasn't ready to get pregnant'

Courtney Stodden admits she "wasn't ready" to get pregnant.

The 21-year-old reality star recently announced she and husband Doug Hutchinson, 56, are expecting their first child together, but she has now acknowledged it is an "oops baby" and she is "terrified" at the thought of being a parent.

She said: "This was strictly an 'oops' baby. I love children, but I really wasn't ready - I'm only 21.

"I love the little angel already but I'm absolutely terrified. It's an overwhelming responsibility."

Though she is only eight weeks pregnant, Courtney is already suffering from morning sickness, irritable bowel syndrome and prenatal depression, and admits she is finding things "difficult".

She told Heat magazine: "It's been really difficult. I don't understand why they call it morning sickness, because it lasts all day.

"The doctors have given me Xanax - a low dose - for the depression. But it's tough. I'm only a few weeks in and I'm already miserable."

Luckily, Courtney's husband has been very supportive.

She said: "Doug has been fabulous. He's been taking care of me so well. He gets sympathy morning sickness. It's funny.

"He's such a great husband, and he's like, 'I think you are sexier now'. I'm like, 'I don't know how to take that. Do you want me to be all lumpy?' "

The blonde beauty - who had breast implants in 2013 - may be months off giving birth but she's already thinking about her post-baby body.

She said: "After the pregnancy, I maybe will need them redone. Yeah, I'll probably need new breasts after the birth."

Courtney claimed just two months ago that she was not quite ready to have children.

She said: "Oh boy! I don't know if we're ready for a baby right now. We have two little fur babies, so those are kind of our babies right now. But, you never know!"
