Tila Tequila has been hinting at and tweeting about a possible pregnancy for months, with many speculating the reality TV star is not with child, but rather just desperate for attention.
But now, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Tila, whose real name is Thien Thanh Nguyen, claims she is in fact pregnant and in her first trimester -- and to prove it, she even produces a sonogram.
So is Tila really pregnant? Only time will tell given Tila's often erratic and eccentric behavior in the past. But she says doubters can be assured it's her actual ultrasound photo because the first two letters of her last name are seen on the upper left hand corner of the photo, which is customary in many ultrasound photos.
Visible in the photo is the gestational sac, which is the earliest sonographic finding of a pregnancy.
Tila, appearing happy and excited, shares with RadarOnline.com, "I know the whole world is confused as to why I am pregnant while I was still engaged to Casey. They wonder if I cheated on her. Well, while Casey and I were engaged, the world doesn't know that Casey and I talked a lot about our future.
"She and I were both ready to get married and start a family together. That is why she was fighting so hard to get her daughter Ava back and wanted me to adopt Ava so that I would officially be Ava's mother too! Aside from that we talked about one of us getting pregnant so we can have another baby of our own. We talked about this for a very long time, and we both agreed that I would be the one carrying the baby.
"So that is the reason why I got pregnant. It was for Casey and I, and that is also why I was so devastated when she passed away because now I have our baby in my belly, but she has passed away."
Tila says that even though her heart is broken by the death of her beloved "wifey" she plans to be strong for their unborn baby and shares that Casey recently came to her in a dream, telling her not to cry anymore, assuring her that she is watching over her and telling her to just take care of their baby.
"I would wake up crying, and go to bed crying," Tila says. "We had it all planned out, but now I am left alone as a single mother without her. I am crying right now just talking about this because this is something that the public did not know.
"We were so excited to be mothers and she was so excited to help me through the pregnancy. I will never forget her telling me 'You are going to be the cutest pregnant girl in the whole world in your pink Teletubby pajamas! I love you so much!'
"But this story breaks my heart. This baby was planned. This baby, which I am currently carrying, was for Casey and I to start our family together. I am still devastated that she's gone now, however, she came to me in a dream one night when I hit rock bottom. I couldn't get over the fact that my wife has passed away right when I was pregnant. However, in my dream, she told me not to cry anymore and not to worry. She told me she is in heaven now watching over me and always and forever protecting me and our baby. She then handed the baby over to me, kissed me, and said "I love you T, please don't cry anymore! Just take care of our baby." Then that was it."
Tila goes on to tell RadarOnline.com exclusively that she knows Casey will live on forever in their baby, and although she is keeping mum on the identity of the baby's father, she hints that he is a celebrity.
"After I had that dream, I now know that she is indeed watching over me and our baby!" Tila says. "So with that, I am extremely excited to be pregnant, to be a first time mother, and more importantly, I know for a fact that my Casey's spirit, will be in our baby!
"When one life is gone, another one is born... Now I am no longer sad that Casey is gone. She is with me forever now through this baby. As for the baby's Father... well... that's a whole other story that I would like to keep private.
"She told me that since I would be the one carrying the baby, that I could choose who I want the father to be, and so I did. That is all I can tell you, however what I can say is that my baby's father, God Bless him, is definitely someone 'known' and definitely someone in the 'Entertainment Industry'"
Tila finishes by telling RadarOnline.com that she is excited about the future and that she's going to be an awesome mom.
"That's all I can say," Tila says. "I am so looking forward to starting the next chapter of my life as a single mommy. I know I will be the BEST MOMMY IN THE WORLD!"
