The quickest way to spread a celebrity pregnancy rumor is through the gossip columns. The suspected pregnancy of Penelope Cruz began much the same way, with a picture sparking speculation that Penelope Cruz might be pregnant. Speculation about pregnancies for many celebrities has started after a picture gives audiences pause – is it just an unflattering shot, or is that bump a baby?
In Cruz’s case, the rumors are true, according to CNN and a recent press release. But what about other suspected pregnancy rumors over the past year? Do gossip columnists and reporters get it right more often than not when celebrity pregnancies are at stake?
Penelope Cruz Pregnancy Rumors: True
In this case, a picture was worth a thousand words. The picture taken of Cruz while she was filming the newest Pirates of the Caribbean film shows a slightly expanding waistline. A press release has now confirmed that Penelope Cruz is pregnant.
Angelina Jolie Pregnancy Rumors: False
Angelina Jolie is another celebrity often in the pages of magazines and gossip columns with headlines about suspected pregnancies. I can’t begin to count the number of false pregnancy rumors I’ve read concerning the celebrity since she began her relationship with Brad Pitt. Though Jolie and Pitt are proud parents, the pair are not currently expecting another baby, according to People.
Kate Middleton Pregnancy Rumors: False
Kate Middleton, long-time love of Prince William, is another victim of a false pregnancy rumor, according to People Magazine. The beautiful young woman has been on and off of the arm of the Prince for years. Contrary to reports and with a spokesman’s denial, there’s no evidence to support a baby on the way.
Eva Longoria Pregnancy Rumors: False
Eva Longoria was another celebrity who was the victim of false pregnancy rumors. The rumors began shortly after her high-profile wedding to basketball player Tony Parker, and have continued on and off for years. However, there has yet to be any truth to the rumors, and the couple remains together, happy, and childless.
Though celebrity pregnancy rumors abound in the media, tabloids, and celebrity gossip columns, it appears that true celebrity pregnancies are harder to come by. However, in the case of the Penelope Cruz pregnancy, the gossip was right on the money.
