AMANDA Knox was the center of attention back in 2007 following her conviction for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
After being acquitted by the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation in 2015, Knox, 34, is looking to start a family.
When is Amanda Knox's baby due?
Knox shared the news of her pregnancy during her podcast, Labyrinths.
"That's right, we're pregnant, and we've been recording audio of our own experience since day one. Stay tuned for our next mini-series, 280 days, where we take you on an intimate journey from conception to birth," Knox said.
On the podcast, Knox and her husband Christopher Robinson can be heard repeatedly shouting "yes," following the results.
While there is no estimate on how far along Knox is, her baby is expected sometime in early 2022.
Did Amanda Knox have a miscarriage?
The news of her pregnancy comes just weeks after announcing that she suffered a miscarriage in May 2021.
The couple revealed that at an ultrasound appointment, they didn't find a heartbeat and knew something was wrong.
"We went back in a week later — that week sucked, waiting — and it hadn't grown. It didn't have a heartbeat," she recalled.
"That was confusing to me, because I thought, 'Why would there be a dead baby just hanging out in there? If it wasn't viable, why wasn't it going away?' My body didn't even know, and that felt weird to me. … I didn't know that you could have a missed miscarriage."
Following the news, Knox added in that they induced labor and it caused her pain that she had never experienced before.
"It was abdominal pain like I have not experience before. I was shaking," Knox revealed.
What happened to Amanda Knox in Italy?
Knox moved to Perugia, Italy when she was 20 years old to continue her linguistic degree at the University for Foreigners.
While there, Knox lived with then 21-year-old Meredith Kercher who was from London and also studying linguistics.
After moving to Italy, Knox met her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito at a concert.
On November 1, 2007, Knox had went over to her boyfriend's house for the night and the following day, they discovered Kercher's body in her room.
Following the discovery of the body, Knox and Sollecito were interrogated by the police and then arrested for the murder.
Knox was then put on trial with Sollecito and convicted of murder. Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison while Sollecito was sentenced to 25.
On October 3, 2011, the conviction was overturned and both Knox and Sollecito were released from prison before being retried and convicted again in 2014.
Following the second conviction, the two were then acquitted again in October 2015 and the case was finally closed.
Knox then went on to become a published author and was awarded $20,000 from Italy after they failed to provide legal assistance and an independent interpreter when she was interrogated back in 2007.
