Hollywood is wild about babies! The media is speculating whether A-lister Julia Roberts is expecting her fourth child.
Here’s news that many people were not expecting: A baby-bump watch has begun for Julia Roberts. News about the 46-year-old actress being pregnant started percolating after she was spotted out in Los Angeles with a possible pregnant belly.
Roberts was sporting a navy sweater and jeans with a baggy gray jacket hiding a reported baby belly. TMZ shared the paparazzi photo along with another photo of the Oscar-winning actress at the 2013 BAFTA LA Jaguar Britannia Awards with George Clooney. She was barefoot while onstage at the formal event and wearing a very loose-fitting black trapeze dress.
The usually slender star has three kids with husband Danny Moder, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 9, and Henry, 6. The couple married in 2002.
It’s become a trend in Hollywood for actresses to have children well into their 40s. Halle Berry gave birth to a son in October at the age of 47 and Kelly Preston gave birth to a son in 2010 at the age of 48. If Roberts is pregnant for the third time, this wouldn’t be unusual for Tinseltown.
The August: Osage County actress has slowed down in recent years because family is a priority for her. She told Marie Claire in their December issue why she’s more selective about the roles she chooses these days.
She revealed, “The things that are correct for me will come to me at the time that I am interested in them and have the capacity, the understanding, to do them.”
Only time will tell if she’s really pregnant, but it’s become commonplace for actresses to remain mum about their pregnancies. Sometimes stars just want a little bit of privacy.
