Tonya Harding, a former figure skater, and now TV personality, is pregnant. Entertainment news sites reported, February 11, 2011.

Harding has been known for her involvement in the notorious attack of figure skating competitor- Nancy Kerrigan in 1994.

The 40-year-old TV personality, married Joseph Price, a 42-year-old repairman from Oregon. The couple is excitedly expecting a baby boy.

Tonya Harding lost her figure skating career after her scandalous involvement when her then, husband, Jeff Gillooly, bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt and Shane Stant, attacked her famous rival, Nancy Kerrigan in January 1994. The incident left Kerrigan with bruised legs which made her unable to compete in the National Figure Skating Championships, and where Harding won first place.

The incident derailed Harding’s career. After pleading guilty about covering up the attack, she was convicted and sentenced to three years of probation, 500 hours of community service and a fine amounting to $160,000. She was also forced to resign from the US Figure Skating Association.

When Kerrigan left the limelight after the incident, Harding reinvented herself. She became a boxer and now a TV commentator on TruTV. The positive thing about her recent success is the fulfillment of becoming a mother with the arrival of her new baby.
