Amy Slaton, known as one half of the duo on 1000-lb Sisters, is rumored to potentially be pregnant again. As her first son Gabe reaches more than a year in age, many are speculating a possible bump.
Her journey to lose weight, which began at more than 400 pounds, has aired on TLC for over a year, alongside her sister Tammy. However, her motivation to drop the pounds really began when she wanted children.
Despite worries surrounding whether she could fall pregnant due to weight, she went on to prove that she could do it and eventually had bariatric surgery. She’s now less than 300 pounds and a mother to son Gage.
So, has Amy fallen pregnant for a second time? We shut down rumors and found out the truth.
