Thalia Brooks, a former ANTM contestant is pregnant.
“America’s Next Top Model” watchers will know exactly how great of news this really is.
Now I know Thalia is only 18, as is her boyfriend, but she thought she would never be able to have kids. She suffered second-and-third-degree burns when she was 8-months-old and has had 14 surgeries to fix the damage that was wrought.
She told Tyra Banks, “I was told multiple times over and over that I couldn’t get pregnant just from my scars holding me back, other physical things going on with my body, I was always told I was never going to be able to conceive children.”
So I’m guessing it was a surprise.
She went on to say: “During the show David and I were together. Once I got home, he and I started having some complications. Shortly after that, we did break up because we both agreed that we had some stuff we needed to work on individually. So that is exactly what we are doing and still doing.”
Her boyfriend David Michaels said: “When I first found out I was surprised and excited at the same time because members of my family since the moment they saw me and Tahlia together have told me that they know we are going to be together and have a family together. And, yes we have complications we are working through right now, but I know we will be able to get through it as a couple because we both still are in love.”
So there you go, Thalia Brooks is going to be a mommy. They say they have a good support system, which they will definitely need, because as we all know it’s hard to raise kids when you are an adult, let alone when you are a kid yourself.
