Debra Lafave walks out of a store near her Apollo Beach home with a visible baby bump. The Target baby registry and this photo support tabloid reports she is pregnant with twin boys.

TAMPA — The Target baby registry asks for two Graco Snugride car seats, two blue Bumbo chairs and a two-pack swaddle blanket for boys.

"Twins!!!!" screams the message from the parents-to-be.

The registry seems to support the news that has been circulating in tabloids and on gossip sites: Debra Lafave, the bombshell Tampa teacher who made news around the world for having sex with a middle school student, is expecting twin boys.

Estimated arrival date? Oct. 13.

Lafave, who now goes by her maiden name Beasley, isn't talking about it publicly, and her lawyer declined to comment. But a recent photo shows her sporting a very visible baby bump.

For what it's worth, the National Enquirer reported a few weeks ago that Lafave is four months pregnant and living with her fiance, Shawn Haverfield, in an attempt to move on with her life.

Lafave was ordered to stay away from children after pleading guilty to having sex with a 14-year-old boy in 2004 while she was a teacher at Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace. She was sentenced to three years of house arrest, followed by probation, but avoided prison time.

Her attorney, John Fitzgibbons, argued she was too pretty to go to jail. Or, to be exact, putting her there would be like "placing a piece of raw meat in with the lions."

Fitzgibbons said Wednesday he has received numerous media inquiries about her pregnancy and has given the same response: no comment. Neither Lafave nor Haverfield could be reached.

The Enquirer reported that Lafave is engaged to Haverfield, an Apollo Beach restaurant owner, but they haven't set a date.

This would mark the second marriage for Lafave, 30. The first, to Owen Lafave, ended in divorce amid the sex scandal.
