Denver Nuggets superstar Ty Lawson tells TMZ ... everything is HUNKY DORY between him and his pregnant GF Ashley King ... despite the fact they were both arrested for domestic violence last weekend.
"That's my baby," Lawson told us last night on his way out of Sound nightclub in L.A.
As we previously reported, Lawson is accused of pushing King (an ex-member of the "Bad Girls Club") ... and King is accused of trying to break Lawson's phone during an explosive argument at his Denver home.
The two spent 3 days in jail ... (did we mention King is PREGNANT?) ... but have patched things up and insist they are committed to moving forward with their relationship.
Both Lawson and King are due in front of a judge on Friday to be arraigned -- and Lawson tells us he's looking forward to his day in court.

Denver Nuggets star Ty Lawson allegedly shoved his pregnant girlfriend before he was arrested for domestic violence on Saturday, this according to the police report -- but the girlfriend was arrested too.
According to the report, police were called to Lawson's Denver home around 9AM Saturday morning in response to a report of a domestic argument involving Lawson and his gf Ashley Pettiford -- aka Ashley King from "Bad Girls Club" -- who is six months pregnant.
When they arrived, Pettiford was crying, and explained that she and Lawson had been arguing because she overheard him talking to another woman on his phone the night before.
She told police she tried to pack her things to leave Lawson because she'd had enough, but he stopped her and pushed her onto their bed. She says she responded by throwing his phone and breaking it. Lawson then allegedly grabbed her phone and dunked it under water.
Pettiford said she knew her baby was okay despite the incident because she felt it moving afterward, but Lawson was still placed under arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, as well as criminal mischief (for throwing Pettiford's phone) and harassment.
Pettiford was arrested for criminal mischief (for destroying Lawson's phone) and domestic violence. They have both since been released on $1,000 bond.

Wanted by Police
After DUI Arrest
12/22/2011 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Judith Jackson -- who starred in the most recent season of "Bad Girls Club" in New Orleans -- was arrested last month on suspicion of DUI ... and now, police are on the hunt for her again.
According to the Illinois arrest report, obtained by TMZ, Jackson was pulled over for erratic driving on November 9th ... and then placed under arrest after bombing a field sobriety test.
But here's where it gets crazy -- while police searched her vehicle, cops claim Jackson climbed out of the squad car window, still in handcuffs, and took off down the street.
According to the report, cops located Jackson hiding away in a nearby home, and hauled her to the police station -- where she was booked on three charges ... DUI, resisting arrest, and theft.
But what did she steal, you ask? Cops insist ... since Judith was wearing their handcuffs during her alleged getaway attempt, it qualifies as theft ... which is pretty crazy ... because what the hell was she supposed to do? Take them off first?
Jackson was scheduled to appear in court on Monday -- but according to court sources, she failed to show up ... and a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.
Judith tells us, she was out of town hosting an event during her court date -- and she plans to take care of that pesky warrant issue as soon as she can.

Hopkins says in the letter that she was "egged on by anger and alcohol" but says the takes full responsibility for her "inexcusable comments."
