While Ricci didn't mention who the baby's daddy is, several fans are speculating it could be hairstylist Mark Hampton's child.

The actress posted a loving birthday tribute to him weeks ago, claiming "this next year is going to be the best one yet." He later posted a photo of the sonogram and copied the mom-to-be's caption, writing, "Life Keeps getting better!!!"

Ricci's shocking pregnancy comes one year after the Casper star filed for divorce from Heerdegen after seven years of marriage.

In January, the actress was granted a restraining order from her estranged husband after claiming he beat her during quarantine. She even produced photos showing the alleged injuries.

According to Ricci's lawyers, when quarantine began in March 2020, she "found herself trapped in a house with a violent abuser." The actress said she was worried for her life, as well as her son's.

She also described incidents where her ex reportedly spat on her and made pig noises in her face. The judge signed off on the restraining order, which required Heerdegen to stay 100 yards away.

Fast-forward to last month when the judge officially declared Ricci a single lady, despite their nasty battle continuing in court.

Ricci and Heerdegen finally found some common ground because they both asked the judge to legally end their marriage while they continue hashing out their differences.

Ricci and her ex still have to work out child custody and visitation over their 7-year-old son Freddie Heerdegen, child support, spousal support, and the division of their property.

The duo got married in 2013 before deciding to call it quits last year.
