Kat Von D Is Expecting

Kat Von D is tackling a new project- pregnancy!

Von D, 36, announced on Tuesday that she and her husband Leafar Seyer, 42, are expecting a baby. The famous tattoo artist informed fans via Instagram. In a dark and moody photo, Kat caresses her baby bump with one hand, while wrapping the other around Seyer. The photo was captioned, "It's a boy".

It’s a boy.🖤 @prayers

Seyer also posted a photo on Instagram which he captioned, “When I thought I had it all. Life gifts me with the greatest of joys ! We are pregnant and having a baby boy. I love you @thekatvond and Im ready to be a father to our son Leafar. Thank you my love our family comes first !!!”.

Vocalist Leafar Seyer (who real name is Rafael Reyes) is a singer for the band Prayers, a duo composed of himself and long-time friend Dave Parley. Fun fact: Leafer, his stage name, is Rafael spelled backwards.

Seyer and  Von D were married earlier this year. The couple kept their nuptials under the radar, only letting fans know that a wedding had taken place via social media. Von D posted, "Today, I married my soul’s mate, my mind’s twin, my best friend: @prayers 🖤Juntos en vida y en muerte".

Kat Von D made it big in the tattoo industry after she was featured on the popular  TV show Miami Ink. She is known for her gorgeous tattoos, as well as her incredible fashion sense. The tattoo artist now runs her own parlor, LA Ink, in Los Angeles. She has also  created a make-up line, as well as authored two books.


Kat had dated some high profile men before her current husband, including Jesse James, Deadmau5, Steve-O, and Tom Green. Clearly Seyer made his mark on Von D because the couple became engaged on Valentine's Day of this year, and married shortly after.

Some longtime fans were surprised to hear of the tattoo artist's pregnancy, as she has made public statements before regarding wanting children. Kat told Dr. Drew, "The funny thing is that I've known since I was 7 years old that I was never going to have kids," Kat confided. "I always imagined myself as this worldly, traveling, gypsy lady. I love children, kids love me, but I think I'd made a really good buddy. I don't know if I'd be a bad mom, but it's not what I want. I don't want to put my body through it".

But let's all give Kat a break, a girl is allowed to change her mind.

The couple has not officially released Kat's due date, but from the size of her growing belly it is probably not far off.

Congrats to the happy couple on their pregnancy!
