REP: Amal Clooney Is “Not Pregnant”
“Amal Clooney is not pregnant,” her rep tells Gossip Cop. The rumor was started by TMZ in a story that was headlined, “Amal Clooney Expecting?” The site insinuated that perhaps the reason longtime bachelor George Clooney got married was because Amal may be pregnant. But she is NOT pregnant.
TMZ then pointed out what it claimed may be a baby bump beneath her white coat, and said its photos of Amal leaving the Soho House in Los Angeles are “definitely interesting.” The site added, “Coats generally don’t hang out from your body, and the placement of her hands [above her belly] adds fuel to the fire” (photo above). TMZ concluded its piece by noting, “If they are having a kid it doesn’t stand a chance of looking bad.”
And while the site’s photo gives the illusion of a baby bump because on how her coat falls and where her hands are, speculating about pregnancies based on paparazzi pictures is a slippery slope. Gossip Cop looked into the claim and in this instance, a picture doesn’t speak a thousands words. It speaks two words, “Not pregnant.”
Amal and George Clooney are not expecting a baby right now. The pregnant story was not true when OK! made the claim on its cover in July. It remained untrue when Life & Style tried to peddle it in August. And it’s still not true. It seems the only fertile things are the imaginations of those who keep writing about Amal being pregnant.
