Gypsy Rose Blanchard shares ‘first selfie of freedom’ hours after she's released from prison

After being released from prison, Gypsy Rose Blanchard has shared her initial self-portrait, embracing her newfound freedom.
As previously detailed, Gypsy, now 32, has regained her liberty after serving almost eight years for her involvement in the murder of her mother, Clauddine "Dee Dee" Blanchard.

The saga, which first captured global interest in 2015, shed light on the peculiar circumstances surrounding the case. Dee Dee Blanchard's life was tragically ended by Gypsy's boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, whom she had met on an online Christian dating platform.

The unsettling narrative brought to light a history of forced deception, as Dee Dee falsely asserted that Gypsy was afflicted with leukemia, muscular dystrophy, and other severe illnesses. In contrast to these claims, Gypsy was discovered to be in good health and not developmentally delayed. Dee Dee, diagnosed with Munchausen syndrome by proxy, fabricated illnesses to garner attention.
The intricate web of deceit extended to interactions with country star Miranda Lambert, charitable contributions, a Disney World excursion, and even a home near Springfield provided by Habitat for Humanity. Dee Dee manipulated medical professionals, alleging that Gypsy's records were lost during Hurricane Katrina.

Gypsy underwent unnecessary medical procedures, including the removal of her salivary glands, all orchestrated by her mother. Limited education and isolation from the outside world further facilitated the elaborate deception.

Under her mother's control, Gypsy sought the assistance of Nicholas Godejohn, whom she encountered on a Christian dating website, to execute the murder. In June 2015, Nicholas fatally stabbed Dee Dee while she slept.

In 2016, Gypsy pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, receiving a 10-year sentence in exchange for her testimony against Nicholas, who was sentenced to life without parole.

Gypsy was released on December 28 and promptly celebrated her newfound freedom with a selfie posted on Instagram.

She captioned the post: "First selfie of freedom!"

People were quick to offer their support, as one person said: "I hope you have nothing but wonderful loving and beautiful life," while a second person said: "You look so much happier gypsy i am so proud and excited for you in this new life."

Reportedly, Gypsy plans to document her childhood and experiences during her time in prison in an upcoming book.

Alongside this, the 32-year-old has expressed her wishes to attend a Kansas City Chiefs game in the hopes of bumping into Taylor Swift.

In the weeks before her release, concerns were raised among family friends. Fancy Marcelli and Titania Gisclair expressed worries about Gypsy's reluctance to embrace counseling and the potential impact of her manipulated past on her imminent freedom.

Marcelli voiced her apprehension, stating: "She’s supposed to get out in 2025, but I worry about what’s going to happen to her," according to In Touch.

Gypsy now plans to move in with her husband Ryan Scott Anderson, whom she married in 2022.
