Tila Tequila revealed back in April that she was pregnant, and although the former MySpace maven and reality star has been incredibly verbose on her social media accounts since then, she’s managed to keep the sex of her baby a secret… until now!
In conjunction with the launch of her completely revamped TilaTequila.com website, Tila announced today that she is expecting a girl. “Surprise!!!!! So it looks like I’m having myself a precious little baby girl!” Tila wrote.
Tila then confessed that she did previously want a boy, but says that was “because most of my family members wanted me to have a boy.” She says “deep, deep down inside of my heart I knew that I wanted a baby girl! I wanted a little mini-me so that when she grows up I could do everything with her and be able to talk to her about anything! My very own little mini-me!!!! 🙂 ”
Tila goes on to explain that her break up from the baby’s father, Thomas Whitaker, may also have contributed to a shift in her thinking. “Since I will be raising her alone,” Tila says, “I think it’s just perfect that I’m having a girl for my first child instead of a boy because this way it will probably be easier on me.”
In addition to the “it’s a girl” announcement, Tila also posted the first chapter of her autobiography Dreams Do Come True! on her site. In the entry Tila reveals that she lost her virginity at the age of 15 and got pregnant for the first time when she was only 16. “I was young, naive, and careless,” she says.
“Did I know that having unprotected sex could get you pregnant? Sure I did, but I never thought that it could happen to me. I was still uneducated in that area. I knew about the birds and the bees, but at 16 years old you’re just more interested in chasing boys or girls and learning more about yourself as your body continues to go through changes. I didn’t know any better. Having a baby or getting pregnant was the last thing on my mind. I wish I had been more careful, but everything happens for a reason, I suppose.”
Tila goes on to tell the story of how she and the guy who got her pregnant met, but the chapter ends before we find out what happened after she found out.
Tila is also sharing diary entries on her website as well as Q&As with fans. In addition, she continues to post videos on Youtube documenting her pregnancy and offering up advice and insights. Here’s Tila’s most recent clip in which she talks “Sex, Pregnancy, Exercise, Hair & More!”
