Congrats are in order! Catfish star Nev Schulman and his wife Laura Perlongo — the couple took to social media on Wednesday, Aug. 15 to announced that Laura is pregnant and expecting the couple’s second child together, and they even revealed their baby’s gender!
The couple is already parents to one-year-old daughter Cleo James, who was born in October 2016. Laura announced their pregnancy in an unconventional way, by sharing the candid details about when she found out when she was pregnant in a blog post on ATTN. She said she found out she was pregnant in February 2016 after she had taken gummy with Nev and then took a pregnancy test.
“After the initial shock/weed wore off I knew right away I wanted this baby,” Laura wrote. “I was strong. I was smart. I was full of love. I COULD DO THIS [sic]! I was confident I’d be great. Nev was confident he would be great. HE COULD DO THIS [sic]! Sure we’d only been dating long-distance [seven] months (with a break in August) but we were optimistic and in love. It felt as good a time as ever. (And who knows if/when there would ever be a ‘better’ time.) We were excited.”
Even though Nev and Laura hadn’t been together very long when they found out they were pregnant, the couple still made it work — and they’re still going strong! Nev proposed to Laura in May 2016, and they tied the knot in July 2017 — and their little girl Cleo was the flower girl during their ceremony, which took place in Nev’s father’s backyard in East Hampton, NY, according to People.
“I never imagined I could be this happy,” Nev told People at the time. “Marrying the woman of my dreams and having our beautiful daughter there with us! I’m a very lucky man.”
