'Catfish' Star Nev Schulman & His Girlfriend Are Having A Baby & Their Announcement Is One All Women Should Read

One of the faces behind MTV's extremely popular Catfish series has some really exciting news. Nev Schulman is going to be a dad, he announced via Instagram Wednesday. Alongside a photo of himself with his girlfriend Laura Perlongo getting a sonogram of their impending addition, he announced he will soon be a father to a baby girl. "IT'S A GIRL!" he wrote on Instagram. "No words can capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father. I am so in love with you @el_peego and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day."

Like Schulman, Perlongo also shared the news on Instagram. "I ate a big sandwich and it has a heartbeat!" she wrote on IG. "Completely head over heels in love and excited to announce @nevschulman and I are bringing a new bb person into the world." At the end of her announcement, she added, "SO EXCITED FOR THIS BABYYYY!!!" So, yeah, I think it's safe to say these two are seriously thrilled about becoming parents.

But it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows when Perlongo found out about her pregnancy. In a post on the website attn:, she opens up about finding out she was pregnant, all of the emotions she felt about it, and her discussion with Schulman about how they should move forward.

It's definitely worth a read, especially since she reflects about the pressures many young women feel today when it comes to being a mom and choosing not to have children. It's clear that she thought the pregnancy out, and Schulman stood by her side about deciding whether or not they wanted to become parents at this point in their lives. She writes,

Despite the negative feedback Perlongo received from her friends, which led to her freaking out and second guessing it all, she came to a decision that she felt was right for herself and that made her happy.

Perlongo is really excited about becoming a mom and wants other women to know that it's OK to ask questions about motherhood, including whether it's something they truly want. Just because you take time to think about it, it doesn't make you a bad person. She says,

With that, and after a lot of talk and discussion, Perlongo and Schulman are ready to become parents. She ends her post as follows:

Congrats to both Nev and Laura on their next adventure together!
