The former Nickelodeon star’s fiancé, from whom she split on March 8 after getting engaged in February, announced that the two are going to be parents by posting two photos via Instagram on Tuesday, March 17.
“Baby in the making,” he captioned an old selfie of the pair. He also shared a second photo of their baby’s first ultrasound with Bynes’ name listed on the image.
“Baby on board,” the Sydney White star, 33, wrote via Instagram on the same sonogram photo.
While the couple later deleted their posts, a source confirms the news to Us Weekly: “Amanda is just barely pregnant and she is very happy.”
Earlier in the day, the former actress was spotted at an OBGYN’s office in Los Angeles. She was in the waiting room with a female friend, according to an eyewitness.
The What a Girl Wants star was there to have an ultrasound, the eyewitness tells Us exclusively: “[The friends] were chatting about what to expect” during the visit.
“She seemed excited,” the insider reveals, noting that Michael was not at the appointment. “She was dressed casual and keeping a low profile. The lobby was pretty empty so no one bugged her.”
The Easy A actress last posted a photo with Michael via Instagram on March 9, one day after taking down all of the photos of herself with him. “My love,” Bynes wrote alongside the image with a black heart emoji.
Following the couple’s split, Michael told In Touch that the California native was still his “best friend.”
Shortly after Us confirmed the rift, a source admitted that Bynes was “really upset” about the breakup and she wasn’t “taking it well at all.”
“Paul realized the relationship just couldn’t go forward because of the obstacles of the conservatorship and Amanda must live at a sober living facility,” the source added.
The insider explained that Michael had reservations about their romance after popping the question because of the former child star’s complicated conservatorship agreement that she’s been under since 2014.
After her March 5 conservatorship meeting with a judge, Bynes was ordered to seek psychiatric care, Us confirmed on March 9.
She reportedly agreed to enter a mental health treatment facility, but then refused to check herself in after leaving the courthouse.
