Amanda Knox has revealed that she and her husband Christopher Robinson have successfully gotten pregnant and are expecting their first child.
The couple shared the good news on the latest episode of their podcast Labyrinths, which dropped on Wednesday.
"That's right, we're pregnant," Knox exclaims in the podcast.
The episode features audio from the moment their pregnancy test came back positive.
"Oh, thank goodness!" the mother-to-be exclaimed. "Yay, we did it!"
During a podcast episode last month, Knox revealed that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
"I did feel incredibly disappointed that that was the story of my first-ever pregnancy," the 34-year-old said in that emotional podcast installment. "I thought, like, I knew exactly what I want to do with my first pregnancy, and to have it not come to fruition, not through choice, felt like a betrayal.”
Knox also made headlines last week after blasting Matt Damon’s new movie “Stillwater,” about an American father trying to help his daughter after she's arrested for murder in Europe, for trying to “profit off my name, face, & story without my consent.” In a recent Vanity Fair, the movie’s director and co-screenwriter Tom McCarthy said the film was directly inspired by the “Amanda Knox saga.”
“I would love nothing more than for people to refer to the events in Perugia as ‘The murder of Meredith Kercher by Rudy Guede,’ which would place me as the peripheral figure I should have been, the innocent roommate,” she tweeted. “But I know that my wrongful conviction, and subsequent trials, became the story that people obsessed over. I know they’re going to call it the ‘Amanda Knox saga’ into the future.”
Knox was internationally vilified after she became a suspect in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher, her British roommate while they were both studying in Perugia, Italy. Both she and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito went through a tumultuous series of convictions and acquittals that spanned eight years before Italy’s highest court acquitted both of Kercher’s murder for a final time in 2015. By that point, Knox had spent about four years in an Italian prison.
Knox was the subject of salacious and intense media coverage in Italy and around the world as her ordeal unfolded; she was once dubbed “Foxy Knoxy” during her ignominious time in the spotlight. She has now become an advocate for the wrongfully convicted.
