Activist Rachel Dolezal is reportedly pregnant with her third child.
According to TMZ, the 37-year-old former NAACP chapter president claims that she is currently in her second trimester and expecting another boy.
Even though she was asked to provide information about the baby’s father, Dolezal apparently remained silent.

Rachel Dolezal made headlines earlier this summer after it was confirmed that she lied about her ethnicity. Even though Rachel identified as an African-American woman, her birth certificate showed that both of her biological parents were white.
Once this discovery was exposed to the media, Rachel’s photos went viral as they quickly circulated online and became a top news story.
Rachel Dolezal stepped down as the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, announcing her decision with a lengthy Facebook post on June 15.
“Police brutality, biased curriculum in schools, economic disenfranchisement, health inequities, and a lack of pro-justice political representation are among the concerns at the forefront of the current administration of the Spokane NAACP. And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity… Please know I will never stop fighting for human rights and will do everything in my power to help and assist, whether it means stepping up or stepping down, because this is not about me. It’s about justice. This is not me quitting; this is a continuum.”
During a June interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, the mother of two opened up about her two sons — ages 13 and 21 — and how they support her.
“I was actually talking to one of my sons yesterday and he said, ‘Mom, racially, you’re human, and culturally you’re black.’ We’ve had these conversations over the years. I do know they support the way that I identify and they support me, and ultimately, we have each other’s back. We’re the Three Musketeers.”
Rachel also defended her claim that Albert Wilkinson, an African-American man, was her father by stating that they were “connected on an intimate level as a family.”
Rachel got married to Kevin Moore, an African-American physical therapist, in March 2000.
Nearly five years later, according to the Daily Mail, Rachel Dolezal filed for divorce, claiming that she allegedly suffered sexual, physical, verbal, and emotional abuse during their marriage. The divorce was finalized in April 2005, and the judge allowed Kevin Moore to share custody of the couple’s son, Franklin, who is now 13 years of age.
