Is Meg White expecting?

09/01/2006 at 07:00 PM ET

Update: A CBB reader saw Meg on Robertson Blvd in LA today and says that she’s "definitely pregnant."

Originally posted July 7th: According to CBB reader Autumn, White Stripes fans around the net are discussing this picture. Why? It’s spurring rumors and much messageboard discussion that musician Meg White may be pregnant. Meg gives few interviews and little is known about her private life, so it’s possible that if she is pregnant, she may not announce the pregnancy or even the birth of her child.

Her bandmate and ex-husband, Jack White, became a first-time daddy with his current wife, model Karen Elson, in May of this year when their daughter, Scarlett Teresa, was born. He is currently touring with his band The Raconteurs, so the hiatus of the White Stripes may be a perfect time for Meg to become a mom.

I don’t know – she looks like she might be. However, in the past she had moments when she had a tummy and it did not mean anything.

She probably isn’t. It seems these days every female needs to wear a girdle or a pair of spanx. Someone is always there with a camera when they are taking a breath from sucking it in.

Christina on

It looks very possible that she’s expecting. She is bustier than normal, her face looks rounder, and the stomach well could be a baby bump. Plus, the empire-waist top does nothing but enhance her stomach – most women stay away from those when they’re not preggers and just on the pudgy side.

It looks to me like she could be. If so, congratulations to her! Another White Stripes baby, yay! 8)

Meg has always been that busty and her weight has fluctuated a few times.

gargoylegurl on

Thanks for the link Cole.

Hmmm…now that I see the enlarged photo, I’m not sure. Guess time will tell since she probably will not. 8)

Stacey on

Nah. She always looks like that. :)

Who the heck is Meg White? Did we run out of real celebrities?

that picture is very old. so if she was pregnant then..she’d be very very pregnant now.

anon on

If that’s true andrist, how far along would you guess she was?

Supposedly she was on tour with Jack up until 6 months ago…

Emmylou on

Jack White is not her ex-husband. It’s her BROTHER! She doesn’t seem pregnant to me.

meghan on

no. it’s sort of a well known fact by now that meg and jack were married in the past and jack took meg’s last name… they claimed to be brother and sister – but they aren’t. i was on robertson on friday too – too bsd i didn’t get to see her as well.

Jack and Meg are not brother and sister, Meg White and Jack Gillis (his real name) were never married either, they just dated.
The white stripes are not so called because of Meg’s surname, they are named after a peppermint sweet you guys have in the US?
Anyway, I think Meg is pregnant, and congratulations to her!

anon on

I beg to differ, Emmylou…

but anyway it really doesn’t matter, though it is interesting.

Anyway though if Meg’s far enough along that she actually shows, then she must’ve been busy with someone while on tour back in March or so…(I wonder if she’ll get married, or just be like so many other celeb parents today, if any of this is true?)

It is NOT her brother…
Jack met Meg White in 1994, and they were married on September 21, 1996. Characteristically unorthodox, Jack took her last name. In July of 1997, the White Stripes made their first live appearance at the Gold Dollar in Detroit. In keeping live performances to three elements, Jack fulfilled guitar and vocal duties while she played drums.[2] They later divorced in 2000 (before becoming nationally famous) but the band survived.

Didn’t we go through this when Jack White’s baby, Scarlett Teresa White, was born? Gillis is his birth surname, White is his current legal surname.

Lucia on

She does look pregnant, and that dress is soo “mommy”… only time will tell, since she’s almost mute…

Natalie S. on

Yeah i’m watching Conan O’Brien and the white stripes are playing right as we speak…Meg looks pregnant!!
