Tonya Harding, of both skating fame and infamy, is expecting her first child at 40 years old.
Someone close to her has said:
“Tonya is pregnant and very happily married. She wants her privacy, but she is very happy.”
We might not all remember what happened back in 1994, and for those who don't, here's a bit about the reason for infamy:
"Harding, who rose to prominence in 1991 after winning the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, became notorious in 1994 after her ex-husband and bodyguard hired another man to injure her competitor Nancy Kerrigan‘s leg, an attack which caused her to withdraw from the national championship that year."
That was a terrible thing, but it seems to be behind her, and that's good.
Congrats and good luck with the new fam, Tonya!
