Shanna Moakler revealed that she is pregnant with her fourth child.
The Celebrity Big Brother alum, 46, shared the news of her pregnancy on Thursday in a statement. The development comes at a tumultuous time for the TV personality whose ex-boyfriend was arrested and charged with domestic felony abuse just days earlier.
Shanna Moakler Admitted That It’s Been a ‘Very Difficult Week.’
“I took a pregnancy test and it is positive,” Moakler said in a statement obtained by People. “This has been a very difficult week, but I’m taking everything day by day.”
Seven days prior, authorities confirmed that Moakler’s ex, Matthew Rondeau, 28, had been taken into custody at 7:40 AM. After being picked up in the Los Angeles area, the model was charged with felony domestic abuse, and bail was set at $50,000.
Rondeau’s arrest occurred after he shared a frightening video on social media accusing Shanna Moakler of cheating on him with a neighbor. In the video, which was obtained by TMZ, Rondeau is outside of a home that he points and shouts at alleging that Moakler had spent the night at. The profanity-laden video is not an easy one to watch but it’s potential evidence of Rondeau’s state of mind before the alleged physical abuse occurred.
“This is done. I’m never talking to this f****ing specimen of a f***ing human again,” he says in the video, shouting at house. “You know what she f***ing does last night? She comes here and she f***ing goes to our neighbor’s house with a f***ing wife and f***ing kids and f****ing sleeps here.”

“I have never been disrespected and so f****ing humiliated in my entire life,” he continues in the video.
Rondeau’s shouting of slurs at Moakler devolves into a self-pity party as he claims again and again that the relationship is over. For good measure, Moakler’s ex tells viewers that he is not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Following the scary incident, Moakler released a statement to update the public on her current state.
“I wanted to let everybody know that I’m okay and thank you for your love and support,” a rep for the reality TV star relayed. “I’m surrounded by my family and friends.”
Moakler’s 16-year-old daughter, Alabama, took to social media to share that she’d been in contact with her mother and, although she admitted to not knowing all the details of the incident, she said that her mother is “okay.”
She did, however, comment on Rondeau in general saying, “That man needs serious help.”
Rondeau had more to share after his release from jail. On social media, he shared his disappointment about the situation writing that the facts had been twisted. “Today was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life,” a message on his Instagram story read. “To my family and friends, I just want you to know I love you so so much. You know I’d never lay a hand on another woman. My mother is my angel and my best friend. She raised me right.”
Prior to the alleged abuse incident, Moakler and Rondeau had been dating off and on since 2020.
Moakler previously had been married to Travis Barker from 2004 to 2008. The couple shares Alabama and a son, Landon, 18. She also shares another child, Atiana, 22, with De Le Hoya who she was engaged to from 1998 until 2000.
