What is it about Tom Cruise’s wives and the fake pregnancy rumours?

Have you noticed this? Whenever the subject of Nicole Kidman’s pregnancy comes up in a group of people, someone will say “Do you think it’s fake?”

Now, I can’t remember this being said about any celebrity before except…..Katie Holmes. Many bloggers have joked about whether “Nicole borrowed Katie’s pillow”.

Why is this? Are we so cynical about celebrities that we believe anyone would FAKE a pregnancy? And what for? Publicity? I’m not very good with conspiracy theories so I’m slightly stumped as to why any woman would pretend to be pregnant.

in her latest interview in US Vogue to go with the cover, above, Nicole has gone so far as to put the interviewer’s hand on her stomach to feel kicking which strikes me as a little bit sad. You know, that she would have to prove that it was a baby and not a pillow.
Yet another reason to be grateful not to be famous….

From US Vogue:


“Would you like to touch it?” asks Nicole Kidman.

I lower my hand onto the rounded curve of her stomach. It’s as firm to
the touch as a melon. “I just felt some kicking,” she says, giving me
the look of unbridled delight you might expect from a 40-year-old woman
who’s soon to bear her first child.


“The whole experience is so primal,” she says.


Our surroundings, most assuredly, are not. We’re at the top-floor bar of
the Ritz-Carlton in Manhattan’s Battery Park and enjoying the healthiest
of refreshments, bottled water and a lavish fruit plate from which
Kidman—a devotee of red meat—takes everything but the
strawberries (she’s allergic). It’s a clear spring day, and down below
us is the harbor that Kidman’s husband, country-music star Keith Urban,
says looks a bit like her native Sydney.


Casually dressed in a tight black pullover and jeans—punctuated by
the trademark red soles of her black Louboutin heels—Kidman remains
strikingly thin for a woman seven months pregnant. So thin, in fact,
that I’ve heard people say they don’t believe she’s actually with child.
When I mention this, she gives the laugh of one who’s learned not to be
fazed by all the silly things people think.


“Just look at how I’m sitting here with my legs apart”—her knees
splay out at a 45-degree angle. “This is the way you have to sit when
you’re pregnant.”
