Who Is Nev Schulman’s Girlfriend? She’s Pregnant, So Let’s Meet Her

In case you don’t already know who Nev Schulman’s girlfriend is, she’s pregnant, so you might say now is as good a time as ever to get acquainted with her. The Catfish host has been dating Laura Perlongo, who works freelance in creative advertising, for seven months now, according to a blog post by Perlongo for ATTN: published Wednesday. As for how the pregnancy happened? “[C]ondom-less, birth control-free sex where the white stuff got inside the vaginal pocket,” Perlongo explains in the post.

Her narration of events also involves marijuana edibles and a hilarious run-down of her pregnancy test routine, but to the point: The couple is expecting a baby girl, and excitedly announced the pregnancy on social media on Wednesday.

“Words [can’t] capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father. I am so in love with you Laura and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day,” Schulman wrote in the caption of an Instagram post of the couple at the doctor’s office.

Perlongo, 30, captioned her own Instagram post, “I ate a big sandwich and it has a heartbeat! Completely head over heels in love and excited to announce @nevschulman and I are bringing a new bb person into the world.”



According to Perlongo’s blog post, the couple has been dating long-distance, and while the pregnancy is a surprise, they’ve actually been wanting to start a family and are excited about having the opportunity to. “It wasn’t a complete accident. We had talked about wanting kids and had pulled the goalie maybe half-a-time-once but weren’t necessarily expecting this news,” Perlongo wrote.

And if you want to know a little more about Perlongo, who identifies as “strong,” “smart,” and “full of love,” and her mysterious life that is now being hurled into the public eye, she included these choice words about her place in society as a millennial:

“We’re part of that ‘lazy’, ‘self-absorbed’ urban millennial generation that does not want to grow up in any traditional sense. I work as a freelance advertising creative, I dress like Silent Bob and stack my clothes on the floor. I run around nonstop until my body physically collapses. I’m a real entitled jerk, or so the media tells me and everyone born after 1980 or whatever.”

Ultimately, despite some confusion, inner conflict, and second-guessing, Perlongo closed her blog post on a high note. “Nev and I certainly have no idea what we’re doing, we just know we’re doing something we want to be doing. Hopefully we don’t suck at it or turn into know-it-all zombies,” she wrote. “Mainly we’re just really happy and excited.” And, frankly, I think we all are.
