In a Twitter post on Sunday, the reality-TV star wrote that she is serving as a surrogate mother for her brother and his wife. “That is my xmas present to them. Im pregnant!!!!” she wrote.
The nature of the surrogacy is unclear. Presumably she’s carrying the couple’s child (as a so-called “gestational surrogate”), though it could be her own biological child, removed from the couple entirely, that she would then relinquish to them.
However, Tequila, 28, doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to pregnancies announced on Twitter. Over the summer, she reportedly started a rumor that she was pregnant with a late-night Twitter post that was quickly taken down.
She later wrote on her blog: “The point is … maybe I was pregnant, or maybe I wasn’t pregnant. I think that is something very personal but I’m going to clear that up now and say that I am not currently pregnant.”

Barker, 32, was taken to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia, about 75 miles southwest of Columbia, and was listed in critical condition Saturday morning â€“ as was DJ AM (real name: Adam Michael Goldstein), 35, say officials at the facility.
According to South Carolina’s Lexington County coroner, Harry Harman, and deputy coroner, Brian Setree, the four others on the plane were killed.
