Amanda Knox — the former exchange student famously convicted and later acquitted in the murder of roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy — has revealed she is pregnant with her second child.
Knox, 36, announced the news on Instagram on Sunday, with a laid-back picture of her in a jumpsuit showing off her pregnant belly captioned: “Pregspreading.”
When a commenter asked, “Throwback post or…. New bebe,” Knox replied, “New!”
This will be Knox’s second child. She and her husband, Christopher Robinson, welcomed their daughter Eureka in 2021.
The author and podcaster once known as “Foxy Knoxy” appeared more bubbly in announcing her latest pregnancy, with the mother previously telling the New York Times that she initially kept Eureka’s birth a secret because, “I’m still nervous about the paparazzi bounty on her head.”
Knox has remained in the public eye after she and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were arrested for the 2007 murder of Kercher, her British roommate, who was stabbed 47 times while studying abroad in Italy.
Knox and Sollecito were convicted, acquitted on appeal, then convicted and acquitted again in an eight-year legal roller-coaster that had Knox contemplating suicide while awaiting her fate in an Italian prison.
Since her lowest point, Knox has gone on to write and speak about her experiences in a memoir and in her five-part miniseries podcast, “Labyrinths.”
One of the podcast episodes detailed her struggles after she suffered a miscarage in 2020.
Since being released from prison in 2015, Knox has maintained an interest in Kercher’s murder case, calling on Rudy Guede, the man who was eventually convicted of the slaying, to publicly come clean and exonerate her and Sollecito of any wrongdoing.
“He has the power to tell the truth, to take responsibility, to stop blaming me for the rape and murder of Meredith Kercher, which a wealth of evidence shows he committed alone,” she tweeted in 2021.
Guede, who was found guilty of sexually assaulting Kercher and killing her, saw his 30-year prison sentence reduced to only 13 years after a series of reductions won on appeal and for good behavior.
