Podcast host and former adult film star Lana Rhoades recently announced some great news: She's pregnant. On June 1, 2021, she posted a pic of a sonogram next to some flowers on Instagram. The post's caption is simply, "This is the announcement 💝."
Lana even spoke about it a few days before when someone tried to call her out on Twitter for having too much Botox. She corrected them, calling it a "pregnancy glow."
Lana doesn't have many pics on her Instagram, and none of them are with a guy or someone she's calling a boyfriend. So who is the father of her child? Her ex made an indirect comment about it online.
Who is Lana Rhoades' baby daddy?
Lana hasn't said who the father of her child is, but lots of people are saying it's author and podcast host Mike Majlak. Lana and Mike were together on and off for years, but they officially broke up in February 2021. In May, Lana posted a "pros and cons" list Mike wrote about their relationship.
Mike is one of the hosts of Logan Paul's podcast Impaulsive. On a February 2021 episode, he said they broke up because they were fighting all the time and the relationship was draining.
"When those fights become the norm for months and months and months on end, and the relationship starts to take more energy from you than it provides to your life, and you don't see an end for either person, it's the time that you have to start thinking about calling it quits," he said.
How did Mike respond to Lana's pregnancy?
Because so many people have been talking about it, it would make sense that Mike would notice his fans asking if he's the dad. Initially, he went on Twitter asking to be a guest on the Maury show. "Does anyone have a contact at the Maury show? no big deal," the tweet says. But he later clarified on the Impaulsive podcast that he is not the father.
Some rumors are suggesting that Kevin Durant may also be the baby's father.
During the June 7 episode of her podcast 3 Girls 1 Kitchen, Lana opened up about how a certain basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets asked her out on a date. She didn't mention Kevin Durant's name specifically but did hint that the player in question is a Libra. And Kevin is reportedly the only Libra on the team.
However, Lana didn't necessarily have much praise for this person or the date in general, calling him "boring" and saying that he wasn't "spicy enough" for her taste. Beyond that, she explained that the athlete even brought another woman as a "backup date" to their encounter! It seems as though things weren't as magical as one would hope on a first date, but that hasn't discouraged the internet from speculating.
Plenty of fans online have taken the coincidental timing of this date being mentioned alongside her baby reveal to assume that Kevin could be the baby's father. Neither Lana nor Kevin has spoken out about the rumor as of yet, and it does seem like a bit of a reach, but we'll be sure to update with new details when and if they become available.
When is Lana's due date?
In the Instagram announcement, there's a due date above the sonogram that says Jan. 13, 2021. Assuming that that's nine months from when she got pregnant, that means she conceived around April or May of this year. This is after she and Mike are said to have officially broken up in February.
In the end, despite the specific rumors, it's possible there's been someone else in Lana's life since her breakup with Mike that she hasn't been talking about.
Some people apparently even believe that Lana's baby is Bryce Hall's. The two got caught up in a cheating scandal last year where they were accused of going behind Mike's back. The Hollywood Fix caught them out at a restaurant having what looked to be a friendly conversation, but it still got people talking.
