Reports are suggesting the former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes and her reported fiancé Paul Michael are expecting their first child together.
According to People, Michael posted a sonogram of their unborn child on his Instagram profile with the caption, “Baby in the making.” However, because he only posted the image on his Instagram story, fans are unable to still find the image.
As those who did see the image reports, the ultrasound photo had Bynes’ name on it. Bynes also reportedly shared the photo from her sonogram but later deleted it for unknown reasons.
Reports Say That Amanda Bynes’ Unborn Child Could Be Removed From Her Custody at Birth
According to TMZ, due to her conservatorship, Bynes could be asked to give up custody of her and Michael’s child because of her mental health issues. TMZ also claimed that Bynes is only about 4 weeks pregnant. TMZ’s sources admitted that Bynes still does not know that she would lose custody of her child.
Currently, her parents are in charge of all of the soon-to-be 34-year-old’s finances. The former actress’s lawyer told NBC News that following the pregnancy announcement, she is “seeking treatment for ‘ongoing mental health issues.'”
The lawyer, David Esquibias, said in a statement that “we ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.” In 2014, Bynes revealed on Twitter that she was diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder and manic depression.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, rumors began to swirl weeks ago that Michael and Bynes had decided to call off their engagement. However, Michael disputed those rumors in an interview with Page Six.
“Both of our [Instagrams] got hacked and someone deleted our pictures and sent DMs [direct messages] saying we broke up,” he said. “We never broke up and weren’t able to log into our Instagrams until last night.”

Micheal later reshared the photos of their engagement rings after they were mysteriously deleted. A source told E! News that “Amanda’s parents are fully aware of her engagement and at this point are not approving Amanda to legally get married under the conservatorship.”
There have been no further updates on her reported pregnancy.
