Gypsy Rose Blanchard is free from prison. She already has over 3 million followers on Instagram.

“It’s hard because I’m going into a new life and I’m newly married, and I’m going to have kids one day, and I’m going to have to explain to my kids why their grandmother on mummy’s side isn’t around. And that’s going to be a really hard conversation,” she said this week.

“Nobody will ever hear me say I’m glad she’s dead or I’m proud of what I did. I regret it every single day. She was a sick woman and unfortunately I wasn’t educated enough to see that. She deserved to be where I am, sitting in prison doing time for criminal behaviour.”

To mark her return to life outside of prison, a docuseries about Gypsy’s life will also be released.

Lifetime’s The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard will air in January. Gypsy says it’s an opportunity to “finally get to use my voice, to share my story and speak my truth” as a “survivor of child abuse”.

Her husband Anderson will also feature in the docuseries.

“I think this, being in prison, has been the hard part. I think when I’m at home with my family, with my husband’s arms around me and I’m surrounded by my loved ones, that is when I will be happy,” Gypsy said.
