Pinup model and former reality-TV star Tila Tequila announced over the weekend that she is expecting her first child.

"Surprise!! I'm 10 weeks pregnant!" Tequila, 32, born Tila Nguyen, posted on her Facebook page with a selfie showing an apparent baby bump. "I just couldn't hold it in any longer as this brings me so much joy and happiness to know that there is a baby Tila on the way! . . . Yayy! I'm gonna be a Mommy!"

Her post did not reveal the identity of the father.

In March 2012, the pint-size star of the 2007-08 MTV show "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila" suffered a near-fatal brain aneurysm after taking some pills. She told Us Weekly the following month, "I feel like I have been reborn. I should have died and feel blessed to have another chance at life and I intend to grasp it."

Sunday she wrote a letter to her unborn child, saying, "I have waited so very long for you to come into my life, and I want you to remember that no matter what people out there say about us just know that you are a gift from God. You saved my life, sweet baby! That is more than a miracle, and I love you so very much! Daddy loves you very much, too! You are so very special, and never ever let anyone tell you otherwise! Always know this ok? You are my everything! Love Always, Mommy."
