Beyonce's "Pregnancy" Under Fire: Hilary Duff's Comparable 4-Month Baby Bump (Photos)

Is Beyonce's baby bump a hoax?

It certainly would take a celebrity to pull off a fake pregnancy.  And leave it to Beyonce, the ultimate showstopper, to be the one to do it.

As of yesterday, Beyonce’s pregnancy has come under fire in allegations that her bump is a prosthetic and she has a surrogate carrying her child. Speculation became rampant after a video interview showcased Beyonce’s belly crumbling before the viewers’ eyes, only to quickly form back to shape upon her discontinued movement.

In lieu of this news, we decided to analyze her “pregnancy.” Beyonce first announced she was pregnant during the MTV VMA’s which aired on August 29. And her belly was pretty big at that point. Just yesterday, it was announced that Beyonce is due in February, which would mean during the Aug. 29 telecast, Queen B was only three months pregnant.

Fellow pop star Hilary Duff is now in her fourth month as well. The only difference is that her belly is still easily concealable. So why is Beyonce’s belly verging on the looks of a six or seven month pregnancy?

Also, take a look at our comparison of her baby bump with Jennifer Garner’s.

And then there’s the case of Beyonce’s disappearing belly. First, on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. And next, in the context of her music videos. She released the video for “Countdown” just last week where she exposed a rather large baby bump. Fast forward to this week where a video for “Love On Top” has been leaked and no baby bump is evident.

Were these all shot out of order or do we really have a hoax on our hands? Take a look at the comparable photos of Beyonce and Hilary Duff’s baby bumps below! What do you think?

    This is on August 17, 2011. Hilary had just announced her pregnancy was probably about 2-3 months pregnant. (The same time period Beyonce announced her pregnancy and showed off a larger bump.)

    Hilary is about 4 months pregnant at this point and still no overbearing baby bump.

    Even with a strap heavy against her belly, it's hard to see a pregnant bump.

    Now take a look at Beyonce on August 17. This is just 11 days before the VMA's and there seems to be no baby bump here.

    How did it get so large in just 11 days time?

    Something seems awfully suspicious.

    Here we are at present day, October 10. Hilary is in NYC and still no overbearing baby bump. Certainly not to standards of Beyonce.

    One last shot. Still slim.
  • Beyonce 17 of 20
    This was on Sept. 17. Beyonce doesn't even look pregnant.
  • Beyonce 18 of 20
    If we didn't know any better, she could keep it a secret for much, much longer.
  • Beyonce 19 of 20
    But maybe she isn't pregnant at all.
