So far Gypsy Rose is experiencing wild mood swings. "Poor Ken," she said while laughing. He has been very "gracious and forgiving" when it comes to Gypsy Rose's hormone-induced behavior. Thankfully, Gypsy Rose has yet to experience any morning sickness, but she is "always tired and sleepy." Despite all this, she says the pregnancy has been a breeze.

She addressed any potential naysayers who may feel like she's not ready for parenthood by saying, she's not sure anyone is. "I feel a shift in myself. When I found out that I was pregnant, none of anything else mattered," she said. She no longer cares about social media drama or any personal feuds. She continued, "It's not about you or anything other than the tiny little life that's inside you that you are now in charge of protecting." These are the things she wished she had when she was a child.

"All the things I wanted in a mother, I want to give to this baby," Gypsy Rose said, while fighting back tears. "I just want to be a good mother for my child. I want to be everything my mother wasn't." Both she and Ken grew up in "broken homes," and they don't want their child to suffer the same fate. "Whatever we face, we'll face it together," she promised.
