Kate Moss Blames Weight Gain for Persistent Pregnancy Rumors

If there was ever a downside to being Kate Moss, it might be this! Following weeks of speculation by the British tabloid media the 35-year-old supermodel — famous for her waifish figure — has gone on record to deny that she’s pregnant with her second child. Instead, Kate tells New York magazine, she merely gained some weight!

Proudly proclaiming herself “a woman” because she’s finally in need of a bra, Kate adds that even her own inner circle has wondered whether or not she was expecting a baby.

“It’s so awful, even my friends are phoning me up and saying ‘Are you pregnant?’ And I’m like, ‘No! I just put on a couple of pounds, and they went in the right place.'”

Kate is already mom to Lila Grace, 6, her daughter with ex-partner Jefferson Hack.

I don’t believe this denial at all. While I agree that she has gained some weight, it is only in her belly and breasts! If she truly was just gaining weight, it would be more widely dispersed. I have a feeling she is indeed pregnant, but waiting to tell. My guess is because of the criticism she gets for not parenting her daughter now, and because of her wild partying ways. Once she tones the partying down and betters her image, she will announce she is 3 months…then the baby will “come early.”

I haven’t seen pics so I won’t say anything… but her geining weight “without reason” wouldn’t hurt! 😉
If she was pregnant maybe she could just let the rumors swirl instead of denying it?

I saw a picture yesterday and don’t believe her denial.

I don’t believe the denial, I think Colleen probably has it right. The pictures of her smoking and drinking just recently definitely do not make her look good.

I haven’t seen the pictures, but I definitely love the fact that she’s treating her weight gain as something good. Whatever the reason is, all that matters is that she’s healthy.

Amyls- Right on! And she could very just be gaining weight in her belly. Nicole Kidman, for example, was rumored to be pregnant so many times before she got pregnant for real that I lost count! All of those times the rumors started because her belly looked bigger than usual.

Part of that was no doubt due to the fact that Nicole, as she herself said shortly after Sunday’s birth (when some crazy tabs were claiming she was already pregnant with Sunday’s baby sibling!), has always had a “little tummy”.

However, on at least a few occasions, she had probably also gained a pound or two. On someone as thin as she normally is, that can look like a lot, hence looking pregnant. Just like Kate, however, her belly was the only thing that got bigger. The rest of her stayed at it’s normal size.

Just as someone women seem to gain weight only in their backsides, some gain only in the tummy area.
