In her detailed post, Laura revealed she was actually high on marijuana candy when she took a pregnancy test and found out she was expecting.

Laura revealed that she and Nev had only been dating for seven months including a break in August.
Perlongo, 30, shared a post on Instagram and joked that she had eaten a big sandwich that “had a heartbeat.”
