"I feel happy about it but extremely overwhelmed," the reality TV star told "Entertainment Tonight" on Monday, confirming her pregnancy.
She is four weeks along.
"I'm going through a lot at the moment. This wasn't a planned pregnancy," the 21-year-old continued. "But life happens."
Stodden shared similar thoughts with Us Weekly explaining candidly, "It's a bittersweet time for me right now. I'm dealing with a lot of stress and emotions surrounding life and its ups and downs."
"Doug and I weren't planning on going public with this so soon. I'm only four weeks along in my pregnancy. But some things are out of your control," she said of the announcement.
This will be Stodden and Hutchison's first child together. The couple famously tied the knot in May of 2011 when the television personality was just 16-years-old.
Hutchison is 55-years-old.
