Jessica Biel was shocked to hear about her own pregnancy rumors. Then she just felt bad.
On a Thursday appearance on The Ellen Show, Jessica Biel denied rumors that she is pregnant, and then acknowledged why they likely surfaced. She has an 11-month-old son, Silas, with husband Justin Timberlake. According to Biel, tabloid rumors of her being pregnant are simply a result of her looking like a normal human being:
I don’t even know what to say about these things. I feel like, ‘Man, I thought I was doing good with my yoga practice.’ I thought I was in the gym, but no. I have a gut apparently.
She even joked about asking Timberlake whether or not she was expecting again:
I heard that and I called Justin. I was like, ‘Are we [having another baby?] No. Oh, okay. Cool.' He usually knows more than I do about everything.
It would be a much more interesting story if Timberlake had the ability to know his wife was pregnant before she did. That would be a freakishly impressive skill and make him a really unique father.
Perhaps he can use his knowledge about everything to help remind people that women's bodies are not always unaffected by a pregnancy.
