There looks like there could be a new arrival for Schapelle Corby in the new future as the gossip mills are whirring that she is reportedly pregnant with her first bub.

The infamous Corby, has had us speculating for a while now if and when she would be announcing a pregnancy with Ben Panangian, an Indonesian surfer, that she has been in a long-term relationship with and whom she first met at a church service at Kerobokan Prison in 2006, as reported in the Daily Mail.

Photos of Corby, published in New Idea magazine, showed the 42-year old buying baby goods at Kmart in Brisbane. Her haul included baby clothes, blankets and a plastic bathtub.

She is wearing a baggy top so there’s not yet any clear evidence of a baby bump but in the pics, she does place a hand over her tummy. (Could be a sign???).

Engaged…And Pregnant?

The Aussie woman, who spent just under a decade in an Indonesian prison for drug smuggling, also shows off a sparkly ring on her wedding finger, causing rumours to fly that she is engaged.

Earlier this year, Corby spoke to Woman’s Day saying that they (Ben and her) were trying for a baby. She said that was hoping to fall pregnant on holiday in Thailand in April.

Snatched Moments

Ben is unable to visit Australia, as he holds a criminal record, so the couple only gets to spend two weeks together in the whole year.

While Corby is allowed to re-enter Indonesia (which is actually quite unusual for a former convicted prisoner), the couple chooses to meet up in places where visas are not a requirement.

Corby captured the world’s attention during her high-profile arrest in Bali in October 2004, when she was nabbed carrying 4.1kg of marijuana wrapped in plastic inside her boogie board bag.

She was originally sentenced to 20 years in jail but was eventually released on parole after nine years behind bars and was deported back to Australia in May 2017.

More Mouths of Mums

  • Buying baby clothes is hardly confirmation of a pregnancy, she should be left alone


  • I am not a fan of gossip and speculation about pregnancies.


  • Congratulations to her and her partner. I’m happy for them.


  • very exciting for her


  • Many congrats to this couple ! I hope that parenthood has a beautiful and positive impact on them. We all make mistakes, every person deserves second chances.


  • Good luck, everyone deserves to be happy


  • Is it just me, or has she had heaps of work done to her face? How did she afford that? Why are we even talking about this? She is no one of interest!


  • Good luck to her, but I am sure she would prefer the media to leave her alone and let her live her life, after all no one was interested in her before she was imprisoned.


  • Congratulations to them, baby news is the best I hope it isn’t just rumour


  • If she is, she deserves the same congratulations as anyone else.


  • Interesting situation! She would obviously not want to go back to Bali (I would think) and he cannot come to Australia – how will this relationship and the childs upbringing work …


  • Well I guess she’s kept out of trouble since her release as she’s not been in the news. I see that as a positive step. I say she paid her time and hope she raises a lovely child. Time will tell.
