Two months ago, Elisabeth Ovesen, formerly known as Karrine Steffans, announced that she is expecting her second child. In a Instagram post of her holding a positive pregnancy test, she captioned with, “For some women, women like me, these two lines are scary.”
Ovesen spoke on her worries, as well as the silver linings she’s looking forward to. “They conjure feelings of fear and anticipation, anxiety and confusion. Memories of past reproductive and pregnancy traumas rise to the surface,” wrote the former video vixen, 44.
“Frantic calls to the doctor, emergency appointments, blood work and ultrasounds—not just to check on the new life developing inside, but the scars, the tumors, the cysts. Appointments about life and death. Discussions about the dangers associated with pregnancy and birth at this age, with this trauma. Bed rest is certain and nothing else.”
Karrine told her fans that the father of the child is actor-chef Kwame Onwuachi, 33. Kwame is a Nigerian-American chef from The Bronx who is best known for his 2015 appearance on Top Chef and being named the”Rising Star Chef Of The Year” by the James Beard Foundation.
He has denied, through his lawyers, that he’s the father and questioned whether Karrine was pregnant at all.
Well Karrine proved she’s pregnant yesterday, by releasing these pictures.
