Beyonce may be carrying a fake baby bump.

In celebrity culture, the public’s fixation is ever evolving. As we once gained excitement from the slightest signs of a baby bump, we now monitor figures for signs that pregnancies are fake. So where does this obsession come from?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are well aware that Beyonce’spregnancy” has recently come under fire for allegations of a fake baby bump. During a video interview in Australia, her belly simply deflated onscreen. Her reps have denied the “fake” allegations, but Beyonce’s pregnancy has been under fire since her announcement at the MTV VMA’s on August 28.

Katie Holmes was famously the subject of such rumors. Leslie Gornstein of E! Online said, “A timeline of Holmes’ pregnancy photos seems to show her stomach growing and shrinking — and then growing again.”

Nicole Kidman and Kelly Preston have also been accused of the fake-baby rumor.

But keeping a surrogate a secret makes total sense given Sarah Jessica Parker’s past situation. Parker said her surrogate was repeatedly harassed and spied on by paparazzi.

Besides protecting the surrogate, a celebrity is also avoiding criticism for their inability to conceive and their chosen avenue of conception.

While it may seem weird to fake a pregnancy, it makes total sense from a celebrity standpoint.
