Bring in the dancing lobsters! Amanda Bynes is pregnant. 

The former child star and early '00s icon is expecting a baby with her recently reunited fiancé Paul Michael. While Bynes experienced some troubling mental health issues and struggled with addiction for a few years, she has really turned her life around. The 33-year-old has been sober for over a year and graduated last year from fashion and design school. 

Bynes and her fiancé, Paul Michael, posted sonogram images and announced their baby. But shortly after, they removed the posts from their social media accounts.

Amanda Bynes showed off images of her sonogram on Instagram.

"Baby on board!!!" she wrote in the now-deleted post. E! News reports from sources close to Bynes that the former actor is indeed pregnant. A statement from her lawyer requested privacy surrounding her health. 

It read: "Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false. She is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues. 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."

Bynes' fiancé Paul Michael briefly shared a similar message.

At this point Bynes and Michael are allowed to be engaged, but it's unlikely they'll legally marry while Bynes is under a conservatorship. Basically, Bynes' family are her legal guardians as she works on staying sober and bettering her mental health. However, according to sources, her family is aware of her pregnancy, though it is still very early. 

Michael and Bynes are engaged following a brief split.

Bynes and Michael announced their engagement on Valentine's Day, and three weeks later reportedly broke things off. Bynes removed all of her posts on Instagram with her then-ex. Now it seems the two are back on and in love.

Fans are laughing at the timing of this announcement. 


One person wrote, "Amanda Bynes casually announcing she’s pregnant during the middle of a pandemic is the type of chaotic energy we love to see." 

While we are so happy for the star's upcoming baby, we couldn't help but laugh at the timing of this pregnancy announcement.

It's sparked a few funny memes.

One person shared an image and wrote, "amanda bynes announcing she’s pregnant during a global pandemic like." Hopefully Bynes' baby will be a light in the troubling times we've had recently. All we have are congratulations to Bynes and her on-again fiancé.

And in all seriousness, "Bring in the dancing lobsters!"

Many are reminiscing on some of Bynes' most iconic roles, including The Amanda Show on Nickelodeon. One fan wrote, "Amanda Bynes announced she is pregnant. Someone bring out the dancing lobsters!!"

Bynes has turned her life around, and we support that.

Bynes graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in 2019. The star tweeted her graduation photo in June last year. Now she's been living in sober-living households and has been sober for 14 months. Congratulations to the star for turning her life around and now for her pregnancy reveal!
