Miranda Lambert Pregnant July 2015

(In Touch)

Miranda Lambert is NOT pregnant, despite a tabloid cover story claiming she’s expecting a baby with her now ex-husband Blake Shelton. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the report.

The new issue of In Touch hit newsstands on Wednesday blaring, “Blake & Miranda Divorce: She’s Pregnant & Dumped.” The magazine claims Lambert and Shelton’s “split has come at an especially heartbreaking time,” because the country songstress is “pregnant,” and “didn’t find out until after the split.”

After detailing the former couple’s alleged history of arguing and the supposed “final fight” that led to the breakup, a so-called “insider” tells the outlet that Lambert “reasoned [the pregnancy] happened during an increasingly rare night of makeup sex. That moment marked the beginning of the worst month of Miranda’s life.” And now, the In Touch source claims, Lambert is “grappling with the idea of being a divorced single mom.”

Gossip Cop has corrected false pregnancy stories about Lambert and Shelton five times over the course of their four-year marriage. Two of those wrong baby reports were cover stories from In Touch’s sister publication Life & Style. What’s especially galling about this new installment is it’s designed to exploit Shelton and Lambert’s divorce by adding a new, albeit false, twist.

When a major celebrity couple splits, you can usually count on a tabloid story claiming there’s a secret baby involved. In fact, Life & Style went that route this week, too, wrongly alleging the newly-single Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant but alone after dumping Scott Disick. She’s not pregnant, though, and neither is Lambert.

It’s a tired trope that is more fitting of a daytime soap opera, because it does not match what is actually happening in real life. Because in reality, yes, Lambert and Shelton have split. But they are NOT expecting a baby. Period. A source close to Lambert tells Gossip Cop exclusively the tabloid tale is “BS.”
