Nev Schulman of Catfish fame is expecting his first child, and pregnant girlfriend Laura Perlongo shared some #deep thoughts on carrying it.

The MTV host and creator, 31, shared the joyous news via Twitter earlier this week, writing: "AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I’m having a baby!"

Accompanying Schulman tweet was Perlongo’s somewhat bizarre post entitled, "’Pregnant? You’re Keeping It? Ew.’ and Other Reactions."

In the rambling manifesto, Perlongo spares no details, revealing that she was high on a pot gummy when she took a pregnancy test.

"Hi. My name is Laura Perlongo and I’m pregnant accidentally on purpose. Here’s what happened… It was a low-key Saturday night in February."

"I had taken a gummy with my boyfriend. Well, I guess first I had condom-less, birth control-free sex where the white stuff got inside the vaginal pocket."

"But a couple weeks later I ate marijuana in the form of candy.”

Okay then.

Perlongo says it was in that moment she decided to take a pregnancy test, which lo and behold showed two lines, a.k.a. knocked up.

"That’s more than one line. And I’m 30. I have 15 years of urine-on-stick experience. There was no digging out instructions or googling necessary."

"No franticly peeing on more tests to confirm a result," she says.

"We had talked about wanting kids and had pulled the goalie maybe half-a-time-once but weren’t necessarily expecting this news, THE NEWS."

As the weed-induced haze lifted, elation set in.

"I knew right away I wanted this baby. I was strong. I was smart. I was full of love. I COULD DO THIS! I was confident I’d be great." 

"Nev was confident he would be great. HE COULD DO THIS! Sure we’d only been dating long-distance 7 months (with a break in August)."

"But we were optimistic and in love. It felt as good a time as ever. (And who knows if/when there would ever be a ‘better’ time.) We were excited."

"I’m writing this," she went on, because I believe baby-making times are strange for the growing population of girls like me."

"To make a long letter short, Nev and I certainly have no idea what we’re doing, we just know we’re doing something we want to be doing."

"Hopefully we don’t suck at it or turn into know-it-all zombies. Mainly we’re just really happy and excited," the non-know-it-all zombie said.

All in all, it’s great news for Nev – particularly compared to when Schulman made news for that racist tweet – and his significant other.

He also knows how to make the best of an unexpected situation.

Famously, catfished in 2009 by Angela Wesselman, a woman who was posing as a person named Megan on Facebook, what did Nev do?

Inspired him to film documentary about it … and Catfish was such a hit that it subsequently spawned the popular MTV series of the same name.
