The pair have been dating long-distance for seven months, and are “excited” to grow their family.

“Nev and I certainly have no idea what we’re doing, we just know we’re doing something we want to be doing,” Perlongo wrote. “Hopefully we don’t suck at it or turn into know-it-all zombies. Mainly we’re just really happy and excited.”

They have been dating seven months and are at least 4 months prego if they already know they’re having a girl?! Wish them good luck. That is very fast!

“Nev and I certainly have no idea what we’re doing, we just know we’re doing something we want to be doing.” Wow, this lady’s way with words almost makes up for her faux leather crop top.

This woman is dumb and shallow…exactly Nev’s type. But c’mon, we all know this is doomed. They’ve been together like 5 minutes. Pffth.

7 months long distance, sounds interesting.

My hubs and I have been together nearly 17 years. We got pregnant after dating for 7 months. 2 kids later, we are happy and going strong. It can happen. I wish them the best of luck!
