Audrina Patridge Announces She’s Pregnant Via Sponsored Post


Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Turns out, there is a way to have a baby and still keep your career on track: simply turn your pregnancy announcement into an ad! Today, former reality show star Audrina "Seriously, I'm done" Patridge informed the world that she and her new fiancé would be expecting a baby via an Instagram post and a tweet, both of which also happened to be sponsored by Clearblue.

"I finally figured out what to get Corey for Christmas!" she wrote, helpfully adding the hashtags "#babyontheway," "#clearblueconfirmed," and finally, the simple "#ad."

Lest you wonder whether this was just a random promotion for Clearblue pregnancy tests and not an actual pregnancy announcement, you're not alone. Audrina's Hills co-star Spencer Pratt shares your concern, tweeting:

Us Weekly, however, confirms the news, on which Audrina reportedly said, "I feel at this point in my life I am ready to be a mama!"

Congratulations, Audrina and Corey. You can have it all!
