Is Jessica Biel ‘asking for bigger clothes’ to hide an alleged baby bump?

For as long as I’ve been paying attention to Jessica Biel’s style, her style has been disappointing me. Jessica talks a good game about being “too beautiful” to be taken seriously in Hollywood, and while I do think she’s a pretty girl with a great figure, I sometimes wonder if Jessica simply suffers from bad taste, or if she’s actively trying to get people to forget that she’s pretty. Maybe I’m giving her too much credit with that last one – Jessica thinks of herself as a Fashion Girl. She goes to the Paris shows and she wears couture, so obviously she has “style,” right?

Where was I going with this? Ah, yes. Apparently, Jessica has asked her stylist to provide her with some baggy clothes and clothes that would apparently preemptively cover a baby bump. Which doesn’t exist as of yet. I’m including the latest photos we have of Jessica – she looks the same, the same athletic/slim build, no “bumpy” areas. Then again, she has been wearing some baggy clothes out and about in NYC. So, is that a fashion statement from a Fashion Girl? Or does she just not know what looks good on her? Or is she trying to get pregnant?

She has one of the best bodies in Hollywood: but it might be a while before we spy Jessica Biel in a teeny bikini – because signs are that the actress, who’s been married to Justin Timberlake since last October, is expecting! And insider reveals Jessica recently began requesting something very specific from her longtime friend and stylist Estee Stanley – a new, bump-ready wardrobe.

“Jessica asked for bigger clothes to hide her stomach… she may already be pregnant!”

Jessica, who pals say wanted babies with 32-year-old Justin from day one, always held back due to his lack of commitment to their relationship. But then the couple took a much-publicized break in the spring of 2011, Justin got the message – either commit or quit. And since their fall wedding last year, they have been the poster couple for newlywed bliss.

“Now that they’re married and Justin has made it clear he is devoted to Jess, there is no reason not to start a family,” dishes the insider.

While the impending pregnancy means a career break for Jessica, a friend says that having a family remains her top priority.

“She knows her body will take a hit… a lot of her roles are based on her sex appeal, so she is definitely nervous. But she wants this. She’s 100 percent focused on making it happen.”

If this story is true, it’s a victory for Jennifer Garner. Garner and Biel are friends. I always assumed that Garner was the one encouraging Biel to stick with Justin through thick and thin and to work herself into a position where she would be an “asset” to JT, just like Garner is an “asset” to Ben Affleck’s image. And I assume that Garner’s advice to Jessica was always: get pregnant. ASAP. We’ll see if Jessica is taking a page from the Garner Playbook. Or maybe Jessica just thinks super-baggy clothes are in style this season.

    Two thoughts — she’s always been a horrific dresser, which matches her horrific acting, and I hope she never gets pregnant with that loser.

  2. Anna says:

    OMG. If this is true, I cannot wait for all the douchy interviews and magazine covers of JUSTIN gushing about expecting/being a dad.

  3. Suze says:

    Why would she bother? Does anyone care?

    Honestly it’s not like she’s relevant at all outside of being Timberlake’s spouse.

  4. Emily says:

    She is hardly wearing a moo-moo… her singlet in the pic with the jeans is just slightly big, not really baggy…

  5. RocketMerry says:

    Jessica REALLY needs some colour on those lips. She just looks so bland with a “nude” lip!!
    I’m not saying she needs to go neon, but maybe just a nice, lively peach stain, or a light coral hue… anything BUT beige/nude/pinky. Ugh.

  6. mccoy says:

    Most of her pics lately have been dog walking. Maybe she just wants to be comfortable.

  7. DanaG says:

    I don’t think she is as pretty as she thinks she is. I’m actually surprised she isn’t pregnant already! At least it will stop her from acting for awhile and I think we would all be happy about that now if we can just stop Justin!

  8. Tessa says:

    Jessica isn’t as charming and relatable as Jennifer Garner. Every mom in the world looks at Jennifer and sees a piece of herself. That’s why she’s so popular, still, after all of these years. The masses actually do like to see Jennifer discheveled and mussed, dragging the kiddies from a to b. She’s the most photographed “mom” in the world. It’s her thing.

    If that is what Jessica wants, she’s sol. She’s not likeable like Jennifer Garner. She’s not cute or charming or even capable of pulling off decent performances in movies like Juno or 13 Going on 30. She would be gone completely if not for JT. She would have disappeared a long time ago.

  9. Marianne says:

    Or perhaps she’s requesting to wear more baggy clothes so that people will talk about the possibility of her being pregnant. It could all be some sort of PR stunt.

  10. mkyarwood says:

    Bleh, I don’t get the ‘asset’ role that some women covet.

  11. Ailine says:

    She just fired her reps so I don’t believe it. She still wants to be an actress even though she can’t act. It would probably be good for her career if she did have a baby. People would be interested in her again. And it’s not like she is doing anything else.

  12. Guest says:

    It’s from star. Why are people so quick to dismiss it with others but when it comes to the Timberlakes its OMG it has to be true. Get a grip people. She is so harmless and inoffensive y’all act like she spat on you

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree.

      Jessica is at the age where a lot of women do chose to have kids. I have to wonder why people would think it was because it was Jennifer Garner’s idea. Do people REALLY think that a person would pawn off their procreating choices to someone else?

      It seems like people hate on Jessica for motivations that don’t even come from her, but from their own minds.

  13. poppy says:

    she needs bigger clothes because of her ever expanding, over inflated ego.

  14. Maritza says:

    If it’s true I’m happy for both of them!

  15. Guest says:

    Only in tabloids does baggy clothes=pregnancy or that all woman are desperate to get married and have babies like thats our only purpose. Are these articles written by men? That should be the issue people have problems with not Jessica. I feel like they write the same articles over and over but insert a different female celeb but that won’t stop most of you from believing it based on the comments already posted.

  16. JL says:

    I’m to sexy for my shirt,
    too sexy for my skirt,
    to sexy to wear fitted clothes that actually work…..

  17. Bernice says:

    I have always been a fan of Jen Garner and Ben Affleck and knew Jen worked to put out a certain image, but the above written depiction of Garners possible advice to Biel is just so spot on. I bet that’s exactly how Garner sees herself, an asset. Really well put and insightful.

  18. Mrs says:

    For someone people love to hate and call an attention whore you hardly hear from her or Justin unless there’s some movie/album out.

    RE: Cheating rumors… who is she supposed to believe a man that she lives with and has been in a relationship with for 6 yrs or a tabloid? Even if they are true she’s someone to have sympathy for.She doesn’t have the strength/backbone to leave him…Only on the internet would a woman get bashed for having a lack of confidence

  19. lovegossip says:

    My only thought on this is when they said a pregnacy would mean a break from working. Ummm, working on what? Does she even get jobs???? Sorry, can’t stand her. Guess she is just spool beautiful I am jealous. HA ;-)

    I just posted on the Kate Middleton thread, and now I see a possibly pregnant Jessica Biel thread! I just think it’s funny because the two remind me so much of each other. They both seemed like total doormats, willing to put up with the cheating and being dumped, and then take the guy back with open arms when he beckoned again (of course, both guys were richer/more powerful and were the “catch” in the relationship, compared to the two girls).

    They also think they’re soooo fashionable and everyone is impressed with their sense of fashion when we’re not.

    I have to say though, at least Kate graduated from college, even if she did get a b.s. art history degree. But Jessica did work for a living and made her own money before marrying Justin (and she doesn’t overdo the pancake makeup to the point where she looks like a drag queen). But other than that, they remind me so much of each other.

  21. Yelly says:

    For the love of God I hope this isn’t true.

  22. mwow says:

    She’s always had bad style, as evidenced by her wildly different looks all the time. You can tell she doesn’t have an innate sensibility or vision for herself. Plus, she has made comments that Justin has the better style and has to approve her outfits (or something to that effect).

  23. Lilac Sunshine says:

    Jessica always looks miserable. In a happy, new marriage when you’re young and fertile, you don’t need to be “100% focused on making this happen.”

    I totally agree that she’s trying to solidify a relationship that has always been somewhat shaky by having a baby.

    And I disagree that every mom in America sees a bit of herself in Jennifer Garner. Not! That woman holds zero appeal to me.
