Schroder has not yet publicly commented on her pregnancy but has apologized for the series of events that led to her leaving the Bravo series.
"Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced. It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better," Schroeder wrote on Instagram. "I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused. I am grateful for the people in my life that continue to check me and push me to evolve into a more educated person."
Schroder is engaged to Beau Clark. The two had planned to get married this summer but postponed the event due to COVID-19.

"We are pregnant and we are so excited to share it with everyone," Simpson Ross noted in her caption, adding that she understands that pregnant women are under an unprecedented amount of stress right now and that's why she supports the March of Dimes Mom and Baby COVID-19 Intervention and Support Fund.
This baby will join big sister Jagger Snow Ross, 4, and 11-year-old big brother Bronx Wentz, who Simpson Ross shares with her ex, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.

Lea Michele is pregnant, expecting first child with Zandy Reich 🎉
As first reported by People, former Glee star Lea Michelle pregnant and expecting a baby with husband Zandy Reich.
This is the first child for the couple but likely won't be the last. An only child herself, Michele has said for years that she would like to be a mom to more than one child someday,
Michele has also been public about her struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome, which she was diagnosed with right around the time Glee ended. Just a few months ago she opened up to Health about that diagnosis, and when she was asked where she saw herself in 5 years the answer was remarkably similar to what she said in 2014.
"I hope to be a mom of, like, 10 kids—if it's physically possible to pop that many out! Ha! I'm so excited about the thought of being a mom," she told Health. "I also want to continue making records, and I hope to return to Broadway. I also just really want to continue being my own boss—in the sense of creating content for myself on television and writing roles and finding projects that really serve me."
Update: A few weeks after Michelle's pregnancy news broke, her former Glee co-star Samantha Ware spoke out about racism and bullying on the set of Glee. Michelle issued a statement that reads, in part: "I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people." See her full, response here.

In a live stream on social media, Perry told fans she and Bloom are excited for what's to come this summer. "I am excited. We're excited and happy and it's probably the longest secret I've ever had to keep," Perry explained. "Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for. So let's just call it a double whammy. It's a two-for," she said.
Congratulations to Katy and Orlando! 🎉

Report: Michelle Williams is engaged + pregnant 🎉
Mom of one Michelle Williams will soon be a mom of two!
News of the actress' pregnancy and engagement to Tony Award-winning director Thomas Kail was first reported by People and confirmed by E! News. The actress split from her former husband musician Phil Elverum nearly a year ago.
Williams and Kail previously worked together when Kail directed Fosse/Verdon, in which Williams starred. She won an Emmy for that performance and her powerful Emmy acceptance speech inspired working moms everywhere by acknowledging "what is possible when a woman is trusted to discern her own needs, feels safe enough to voice them, and respected enough that they'll be heard."
Williams' incredible speech ended with a shout out to her 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, who she shared with the late Heath Ledger: "Matilda, this is for you, like everything else."
Matilda was just 2 years old when she and Williams lost Ledger in 2008.
In the years since his death, Williams has protected their daughter's privacy with the same intensity she brings to her work. In addition to her Emmy win, she has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for four Academy Awards since becoming a mother.
Williams has demonstrated that motherhood is no impediment to professional success and we can't wait to see what she does as a mother of two!
