Carrie Prejean is pregnant, and she and hubby Kyle Boller are expecting their first child in May, they said Wednesday.
The former Miss California, 23, and Oakland Raiders quarterback, 29, have been considering names but keeping mum, have been looking at baby books and are just excited in general, they told Fox411 exclusively. They said they started trying for a child about a month after their July 3 wedding, and celebrated the news with a hug and a few tears.
"I have the most beautiful pregnant wife ever, we are so in love, and this was just the best news when we found out a couple of weeks ago," Boller said.
The couple will find out the sex of the baby next week. Prejean says she's trying to stay healthy, "but it has been tough. I've been getting night sickness."
We assume that's the opposite of morning sickness.
Carrie Prejean will marry fiancé Kyle Boller on Friday at a hotel in San Diego, according to a report. The former beauty queen and the NFL quarterback, who started dating in July, have been engaged since February.
Some advice: If you're going to make a bold statement, commit to it. Want to walk off? Then walk the heck off! Throw something while you're at it! Even if it's only a tear-stained, wadded-up tissue! (Sadly, they don't travel far, we've learned).
Also: The big dogs won't take you seriously if you fight back with "that's inappropriate," or even "that's very inappropriate." The "Carrie is polite" ship has sailed. We recommend something along the lines of, "Is that the best question you can come up with, old man? C'mon, even Sean 'What do you tell young girls?' Hannitycould do better. You drop your faux shock and I'll drop mine."
"It was me, by myself. There was no one else with me. I was not having sex. I sent it to my boyfriend at the time. I was a teenager. I cared about him. I trusted him. And ... the main point is that there has been a campaign against me to try and silence me ... for the answer that I gave at the pageant," said Prejean, who is promoting her new book, "Still Standing."
Regarding fallout from the "sexting" video: “Did I think it would come back now and haunt me? No. But I think that a lot of young people can learn from this. Nothing is private anymore. Nothing is private."
The interview also touches on her dropped lawsuit against Miss USA pageant officials (mediation means that details are, ironically, private), Donald Trump's "hot or not" meet and greet, and what Prejean refers to as her being "Palinized" in the media.
"If people want to call me a hypocrite, that's their prerogative," she said. "But you know what, I've learned from my mistakes. ... I think it's all about taking responsibility for your mistakes."
Now that so many have easy access to video and still cameras for personal use -- and the means to instantly transmit any images captured -- the former Miss California USA is evolving into an odd sort of role model indeed.

We've avoided the whole Carrie Prejean sex tape allegations to this point -- because, well, who doesn't have a sex tape these days -- but we mention it now in passing in the wake of news that appears to prove that Prejean is a rank amateur in the scandal department.
England's Miss World representative, Rachel Christie was just stripped of her crown after allegedly starting a bar brawl with Miss Manchester at an "adult themed party." Christie, an Olympic track and field hopeful and the first black Miss England, is alleged to have done this all while wearing an angel costume.
As one witty person said over the weekend on Twitter: "I think this automatically makes her Miss Ireland."
That sort of brawling takes a whole lot more effort than posing for a webcam and doing naughty things. Or rather, a whole lot more effort than we would assume it would take to pose for a webcam and do naughty things.
Read on for a Prejean-related poll and to find out who's replacing Rachel Christie.

The fiasco that started with a same-sex-marriage question from Miss Universe pageant judge Perez Hilton and peaked with Miss California Carrie Prejean being relieved of her title has ended with a fizzle.
Prejean had sued over allegations of religious discrimination, slander and libel. Pageant officials sued back, saying Prejean hadn't fulfilled contractual requirements, and, oh yeah, they wanted their plastic-surgery money back.
And the decision? It's all good. Keep those, whydontcha, seeing as they're attached and all.
Move along, folks, nothing to see here.
