Get ready to gasp!
Star magazine is claiming this week that Stacy Keibler is the latest celebrity to have a baby on board – with boyfriend George Clooney‘s child.
Never mind that this is the first anyone’s heard so much as a whisper about her condition. Never mind that the “Bump Alert!” photo that goes with the story could just be the result of a little too much pasta or not enough situps. And of course, we have to disregard Mr. Clooney’s longstanding aversion both to marriage and to passing along his DNA to future generations.
Nope, let’s just accept the word of some anonymous sources who are calling Stacy “peaceful and calm” and saying that she managed to do the impossible by telling her hunky BF that she didn’t want to marry him. “George was so happy that he agreed to what she really wanted: a baby!”
Call us skeptical, but we’re inclined to put this one in the We’ll Believe It When We See It file. So far, there hasn’t been any confirmation from either camp, and no further photographic evidence of a bump. (This pic here is from last year.)
There’s been a rash of pregnancy rumors over the last couple of weeks, and it’s hard to keep track of them all, much less figure out which ones are true. But based on our best guesses, this is what we know about Beyonce, Khloe Kardashian and other is-she-or-isn’t-she celebs.
Take a look here and let us know whether you think we’re on target!
Beyonce: No way! 1 of 5A small rumor started making its way around the gossip circuit a couple of weeks ago that Queen Bey was expecting a wow-so-soon? sib for 6-month-old Blue Ivy. But her busy schedule and red carpet-ready bod (made possible by grueling workouts) suggest otherwise.
Here's what the initial report says.
Khloe Kardashian: Trying! 2 of 5Although the happily married Kardashian sister has long insisted she hasn't been getting medical help to conceive a child, it looks like the rumors that she's been seeing a fertility specialist actually may hold some water. She's been photographed leaving a prominent L.A. fertility clinic. Our fingers are crossed for her!
See the photos here.
Kate Middleton: Doubtful! 3 of 5A tab cover story showed a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge with what appeared to be a baby bump. But while a royal baby is definitely in the planning for the Duchess and Prince William, there has been no official word from the Palace - and it's widely believed that the couple would never upstage the Queen's 60th anniversary Jubilee. Still, those rumors persist...
Look who's saying there'll be a big announcement at summer's end.
Megan Fox: Just say it already! 4 of 5Like Drew Barrymore before her, the "Friends With Kids" star and husband Brian Austin Green are mysteriously hush-hush about her condition. But though this two-month-old photo doesn't reveal much, more recent pictures prove it won't be long before their "secret" is officially public knowledge.
Look at a recent bumpalicious shot.
Catelynn Lowell: NO! 5 of 5Last week, a tabloid ran a cover story claiming that the "Teen Mom" star was pregnant with her second child - and that she and fiance Tyler Baltierra planned to raise their child rather than go through adoption a second time. Well, it didn't take long for Catelynn to shoot that rumor down. "I'm on the pill!" she said in an exclusive interview, adding that she doesn't plan to have more children until she's married and out of college.
