Courtney Stodden doesn’t know the sex of her baby yet. But that won’t stop her from shopping for newborn girl outfits. “If it’s a boy I am going to dress him up in tutus,” she told Us Weekly on Tuesday, June 7, at a PETA event in L.A. “I know I am going to spoil my baby rotten. I’m going to be a fun mom. I always say I am going to have a girl regardless, and if it’s a boy he’ll be gay!”
The 21-year-old — who is expecting her first child with husband Doug Hutchison, 55 — confirmed her baby news exclusively to Us on May 16. A week later, she opened up to Us about battling prenatal depression.
“My depression affects my sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life,” she revealed on May 24. “At times, I have severe insomnia, and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria.”
On Tuesday, Stodden described herself as being on an “emotional roller coaster.”
“A lot of things are changing in my body,” she said. “I’m feeling OK. I feel really happy. It’s exciting. But it’s a lot.”
Stodden and the Lost actor weren’t actively trying to get pregnant. “It was an ‘oops’ baby,” she confessed to Us. Like Lena Dunham, Stodden suffers from endometriosis, a condition that is associated with infertility.
The parents-to-be tied the knot on May 20, 2011, when Stodden was just 16 years old. They appeared on Couples Therapy in 2012 and briefly split in November 2013 before reuniting in August 2014. Stodden says they are now doing better than ever.
“My husband has been my rock,” she told Us. “He is over-the-moon excited! And he’s so connected to me that he’s basically having morning sickness.”
This will be the first child for both.
