Podcast host and former adult film star Lana Rhoades shocked the world last year when she announced that she was pregnant. On June 1, 2021, she posted a pic of a sonogram next to some flowers in a since-archived post on Instagram. The post's caption was simply, "This is the announcement 💝."
Lana even spoke about it a few days before the official announcement when someone tried to call her out on Twitter in another deleted post for having too much Botox. She corrected them, calling it a "pregnancy glow."
Lana doesn't tend to post a lot about her personal life on Instagram, and none of the remaining posts on her page are with anyone she's calling a boyfriend. So who is the father of her child? Furthermore, what do we know about the baby's delivery? Keep reading to find out!
Who is Lana Rhoades' baby daddy?
Lana hasn't said who the father of her child is, but lots of people are saying that it could be author and podcast host Mike Majlak. Lana and Mike's relationship was on-and-off for years, and they seemed to break up for good in February 2021. In May 2021, Lana posted a "pros and cons" list Mike wrote about their relationship.
Mike is one of the hosts of Logan Paul's podcast Impaulsive. During 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?
Mike soon noticed his fans asking if he was the dad. Initially, he went on Twitter in a deleted post asking to be a guest on the Maury show. "Does anyone have a contact at the Maury show? no big deal," the removed tweet says. But he later clarified on the Impaulsive podcast that he is not the father.
Some rumors have suggested that Kevin Durant may also be the baby's father.
During the June 7, 2021, 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 considering the lackluster way that Lana spoke of their interaction.
Lana gave birth to her baby in January 2022, but the father still remains a mystery.
In Lana's intial Instagram announcement, there was a due date above the sonogram that said Jan. 13, 2022. Assuming that that's nine months from when she got pregnant, that means she conceived around April or May of 2021. This is after she and Mike are said to have officially broken up in February.
Lana officially gave birth to the child, her first son named Milo, in January 2022 as expected. Given that she is almost entirely secretive when it comes to her personal life, Lana has only shared a single photo of the baby on her story alongside the caption "Mom life is the best life."
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 could have impregnated her.
Some people apparently even believe that Lana's baby could be 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.
Whoever Lana's baby daddy is, it's clear at this stage in the game that the only person revealing his name would be Lana herself.
