Will a pregnant Rachel soon be worked into the plot on Glee? According to the latest gossip, Glee star and Glee Project mentor Lea Michele has been spotted wearing baggy clothes and covering a supposed baby bump with her purse. Anything to all the Lea Michele baby bump rumors, or is this just gossip for the sake of, well, gossip?
The introduction of a pregnancy could add yet another twist to Glee’s currently over-complicated plot, and if the rumors are true, that pregnancy subplot could be coming soon! Lea Michele (otherwise known by Glee moniker Rachel) is rumored to be hiding a baby bump behind all the baggy outfits in which she’s been spotted.
The pregnancy speculation was launched by a recent photo of Lea heading to Bellacures Nail Salon in Studio City for a manicure. Instead of her usual stylish ensembles, the Glee star was dressed in loose clothing. On anyone else we’d say it was just a laid-back kind of day, but Lea Michele is known for her love of dressing up. Additionally, Lea was holding a very large purse right in front of her stomach. Media outlets claim that this was done in hopes of covering up an emerging baby bump. We’re inclined to think that Lea just gained a few pounds or was feeling a bit bloated. A little stomach does not immediately indicate pregnancy.
If Lea Michele is expecting, it’ll be interesting to see how Ryan Murphy works the pregnancy into Glee’s plot. It wouldn’t be the first pregnancy on the show — as Gleeks already know, Quinn gave birth to Puck’s baby in the early days of the hit show. Things would be infinitely more complex for Rachel though, seeing as her training for Broadway stardom includes prancing around in tight leotards during dance class.
Do you think Lea Michele is sporting a baby bump? Or are the pregnancy rumors just plain silly? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
