While human rights lawyer Amal Clooney stunned Monday night in a Dolce & Gabbana floral shift dress, some wondered if she was hiding a baby bump. “Good Morning Britain” hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid questioned Wednesday if she was expecting a baby on their show.
“They've set the rumor mill into overdrive. It looks like a cheeky little baby bump under where. It could be the floaty frock or is it indeed a bit of wind?” “GMB” host Richard Arnold said.
While it could be nothing, Morgan argued it’s newsworthy to discuss the possibility of pregnancy since famous women often sell baby pictures. “Here's what I think. Not in Amal Clooney's case but certainly in many modern celebrity cases, they sell their baby pictures and when you do that, you open yourself up to public scrutiny and you've got no complaint,” he said.
If she were really pregnant, Reid didn’t think Amal would be the type of mother to sell photos. “I don't think Amal would do that,” she said.
But children isn’t something that the Clooneys are planning for. When asked if he thought about having a family, Clooney was uncomfortable. “I haven’t really [thought about it],” Clooney said during a 2015 interview with “CBS This Morning.” “I’ve thought about it I suppose, but I haven’t really – it hasn’t been high on my list, uh, I’ve been asked a lot lately because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it.” At the time, Clooney was promoting “Tomorrowland.”
When interviewer Charlie Rose noted Clonney was close with his parents, the Oscar-winning actor agreed he had a powerful connection with his father. “And I’m really close with my mom, too,” the star said. “I’m really close with my family.”
He and Amal have not responded to the latest rumors. The couple has been married since September 2014. They have never publicly announced they wanted to have children.
