Amanda Beard has confirmed that she already wed her photographer boyfriend Sacha Brown earlier this month and that she is pregnant with their first child.
Good news comes in two for Amanda Beard, who has exclusively confirmed to People that she already married her photographer boyfriend Sacha Brown and is currently pregnant with his baby. "It was absolutely perfect," said the Olympic medal-winning swimmer when talking about her wedding to Sacha, which was held on Wakatobi, an archipelago in the Banda Sea off southeastern Indonesia, on May 1.
Amanda, 27, and Sacha, 34, exchanged wedding vows in a brief sunset ceremony on a private beach at their resort. They were presided by a local elder with villagers from the area, none of whom spoke English, witnessing. "It was absolutely perfect," the expectant mother testified. "I've always said, 'I want to get married barefoot on the sand'".
Following the low key ceremony, Amanda and Sacha had a romantic steak dinner, during when they exchanged hand-written vows. During the affair, they enjoyed a two-tiered chocolate cake with chocolate chips and white frosting, and also non-alcoholic Shirley Temples.
Speaking of her pregnancy, Amanda told People she is nearly five and a half months pregnant. "I'm starting to look pregnant," she commented on her growing belly. Moreover, she confirmed the baby will be a boy and is due to be born September later this year. More details on Amanda's wedding and pregnancy can be read on People.
