Survivor’s Jonny Fairplay and Top Model’s Michelle accidentally get pregnant

Another reality TV couple is producing a child, although this time, it was the result of birth control failure, not advance planning. America’s Next Top Model 4 contestant Michelle Deighton, 21, and Survivor twit Jon “Jonny Fairplay” Dalton, 33, are expecting a child. Yes, the man who shit on someone’s bed is going to be a father.

On her MySpace page, Michelle wrote that the pregnancy was accidental. “Baby Fairplay is on the way…opps…YES I’m serious and NO I’m not stupid, I was on the birth control shot. It just decided not to work!” She adds, “I had to tell Jon and to tell you the truth I was really, really excited from the start, unbelievable scared also but really happy. He was really, really shocked.”

Michelle mirrors everyone’s thoughts and fears, writing, “So everyone I’m sorry but yes there is going to be another Jonny Fairplay!! HAHAhhahahhHAHHAHahhahaHAHhahahHAhhHAhahA!!!!”
