Katie Holmes looks kind of pregnant, but seems totally over it


These are some new photos of Katie Holmes looking kind of haggard and bumpy. Note the close-up on Katie’s little stomach bump – the photo agency is trying to make it into a “Is she pregnant?” thing. I’ve been wrong so many times about Katie’s bump, and at this point, I think she’s just got a little belly and bad posture – her slump emphasizes the tiny amount of extra weight she carries in her abdomen. It’s not a crime, and I do have a little bit of sympathy for her because people are always yelling about how she’s pregnant whenever she wears anything that shows off her stomach.


Still, there are questions as to whether Katie will ever have another baby. A few years ago, I would have said “Of course she will.” I thought Katie was like a royal bride – and her contractual obligations were for an heir and a spare. Of course, I would have had questions about the conception, which in mind would involve electrodes, tequila, several tin can audits, a turkey baster and the soundtrack to Rosemary’s Baby. But I thought it would happen, at some point. Now I’m wondering if Katie even cares about the contract. In an interview from a few days ago, she seemed to hint at the idea that she’s totally over the idea of getting pregnant again. She said:

“[Connor and Isabella] are great kids, a great brother and a great sister to Suri, and she’s a great sister to them. It’s not, “This is stepmotherhood and this is motherhood”. I’m not worried about it (having another baby). She’s got really good friends and great cousins, so I feel happy about it. We have a really busy household, and it’s really fun and fulfilling. There’s always something going on.”

It sounds like she’s over it, right? Yeah. I have to admit, that’s cool with me. I know some people get judgy about only children (although it’s clear that Katie considers Isabella and Connor full siblings to Suri). But I’m an only child, and I identify with Suri a little bit. That’s the thing about only children – even when we’re little kids, we’re way more comfortable with adults. And it’s fine. Suri will be okay (no she won’t, she’s a hot mess, but whatever).

    I hate being judgy but Katie clearly can’t handle Suri (because she’s not allowed to say no to the kid due to Scieno rules) and I doubt Suri could handle having a younger sibling taking attention away from her. I do think having a sibling is grounding and takes a notch of brattiness away in general but I know lovely people who are only children and as Katie smartly said Suri isn’t exactly an only anyway.
    But yeah there is something going on with Holmes’s middle I hope it means she just had a sandwich or something.

  2. Eleonor says:

    I don’t think she doesn’t want kids anymore; I think she doesn’t want kids with Tom because if she will ever be able to divorce from him, and from all the Scientolocrazyness there will be a Nicole Kidman treatment to her: no more Suri.

  3. Innocent says:

    So Suri is only a Scieno?
    I thought Katie wanted her to be informed about the Catholic faith as well?

  4. lilred says:

    Poor posture,aweful jeans and a cheese burger. I don’t think she’s pregnant.

  5. trollydolly says:

    Dreadful posture and dreadful choice of clothes. “Dancer” and “Style Icon” my arse.

  6. Innocent says:

    That’s what i think too. Maybe if the seperation happened soon then it would be impossible to seperate a 4/5/6 year old from their mother.

  7. mln76 says:

    Well many believe it’s a contractual marriage that would be 10 years from 2005/2006 …. and yeah at that point Suri will be well indoctrinated.
    @Innocent as far as I know she is being raised as a Scientologist.

  8. Estella says:

    I don’t know why any woman – rich, poor, celebrity or non – would go out of the house looking like this. There are so many casual clothing options that would be more flattering. Also when you look good, you feel better overall. Katie Holmes is a pretty woman but the way that she dresses and carries herself makes me wonder if she’s happy at all.

    On topic: Katie just looks really bloated here to me. Scientology would totally give me IBS bloat too.

  9. tanya says:

    I think it’s a case of an unflattering outfit, bad posture, and some bloating. I tend to gain weight/bloat in the same area, but those are the days I’ll wear a dress or something with a higher waist. The low rise skinny jeans + her slump are only exacerbating the bloat.

  10. lisa says:

    I’m not getting into any breakup thing. But she does look pregnant. With all that working out she does I don’t get that weight in the stomach or around the jeans. It looks like these are either jeans she has not worn in a while and are too tight or she is pregnant. But her comment was a bit strange. But I recall Victoria B. talking about not really wanting another baby then BAM pregnant.

    I’m surprised though they they have not had another child. Suri is 5. That’s a long time. And it’s not like Katie has this thriving career where she is in constant demand to do a film. So..

    time will tell..

  11. STOPGOOP says:

    She looks totally preggo to me here, but you’d think she would do a better job covering if she didn’t want the tabs to break the news

  12. Paige says:

    Good Gawd. I can’t stand her. Have never been able to like her husband. ICK. She has the worst fashion style, or lack there of. I’m wondering, would she really wear that belly baring shirt if she didn’t want us to speculate. She must not be getting enough Pub…she is pathetic.

  13. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I believe she is constantly being pegged as pregnant because she suffers from diastasis recti (a muscle seperation that can occur during pregnancy). Sit-ups and calorie restriction do not improve the condition. It can only be corrected surgically. I personally know of two very thin people with the condition, and they’re often asked if they’re pregnant. The abdominal weakness also contributes to poor posture (since the abdominal and back muscles are antagonist muscles).

  14. tmbg says:

    If I were her, I’d stop at one because Suri seems like more than enough. How is she going to carry a newborn and a 5 year old at the same time?

    I can’t tell if she’s pregnant or not. The clothes seem ill-fitting.

  15. You don't say says:

    If she is with child, delivery would coincide with the release of Mission Impossible 4, just as Suri’s birth coincided with number 3. Just saying.

  16. McMe says:

    She has a c-section belly. Most c-section mommies look like we’re slightly pregnant if we don’t remember to suck it in.

  17. Sue says:

    If she is pregnant and that a big if then these photos were staged.

  18. TeeTee says:

    nah, I don’t think she’s pregnant, I don’t think she wants anymore kids after Mistress Suri and dealing w/any extra Master Tom’s craziness.

    she always seems in a daze or drugged.
    Poor Katie

    RUN!!Katie RUN!!

  19. Jenny says:

    Everything about this couple is staged, right down to the “isn’t Suri cute while shopping” photo ops, with the photogs inside the store. They seemed to have put a lid on Suri since her very public melt down while being kept out late (for a photo op) and probabaly being tired and cranky, like most young children would be at that hour. They need to stop treating their child like some prop and if there is another, I feel sorry for both children in this family.

  20. jc126 says:

    Why would anyone go out looking like this? She must be pregnant.
    I can’t imagine entering into such a marriage as they probably have. I bet she regrets it.

  21. Alix says:

    @You Don’t Say: Astute observation…

    The girl’s father is a divorce attorney — surely *something* can be done here! Tom Cruise is the freakin’ anti-Christ; I can’t wait til all the goods on him and his whacked-out cult come out once and for all.

  22. Ferbie says:

    Does anyone else notice the similarity between her and Britney in these pics? The smudged dark eyeliner, the dazed and tired look, the hairstyle…. I hope the similarities end there.

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Nope. Too many 10:30 dinners in NYC after the theatre.

  24. Crash2GO2 says:

    That doesn’t look like pregnant belly to me at all. Just slumpy posture, no muscle tone and a bit of plumpness.

    It makes me wonder if this is her quiet rebellion against TC. I’m sure this was not what he had planned when he married her and she isn’t doing his image any good, shuffling around looking miserable and zonked.

  25. HotPockets says:

    I doubt she is pregnant. You can work out a lot and still bloat. Wearing too tight of pants, no matter how toned and thin you are, it’s going to cause you to have a pooch.

    It must be hard enough having one biological child and dealing with the COS, let alone two, not to mention all their weird birthing procedures they would like you to abide by.

  26. Jen34 says:

    I have no idea what is going on with her, but I agree with everyone who questions why she would leave the house looking like that. Low rise jeans require a longer top.

  27. Mom says:

    Smartest and best thing she could do is to get a divorce. I really think it is probably a stress/colon problem. Done that.

  28. girlygirl410 says:

    I don’t think she is pregnant. However, I do question her style. The girl was on her way to being a style icon before she got pregnant and for a few months while she was. What happened?

    She is a beautiful girl, with an amazing smile. The problem is the CO$, got a hold of her and told Tommy to stop sending the money to make her look good, and give it to the church.

    She is a really un-brainwashed girl (aka smart) if she does not have anymore kids with Tommy. I hope she is looking for a way out of the CO$ cult…sometimes you have to save your self, to be strong enought to go back and save your kids.

    On a light hearted note….I go with, “if my tummy (belly, gut) sticks out further than by breasts (tatas, tits) then I need to go on a diet….or get a boob job!

  29. Rianic says:

    I think that TC and KH got together bc Tommy Girl saw all the talk Brad Pitt was getting over a “rumored” affair w his costar Angelina. That’s why so many young women (including Katie, I think) tried out for that MI movie. Just Latie disnt get hired but was young and impressionable enough so he jumped.

    Now, I think Katie considers herself up there w the other Kate – Middleton. I think if KM gets preggers, KH will follow suit.

  30. searching4grace says:

    My son is an only child. Financially, responsibly, emotionally, one is the best choice for us. He’s a good kid. Bossy. LOL I wouldn’t blame her for not wanting another one. I’m with everyone else. Bloat. Maybe anti depressant bloat. Stand up straight. Brush your hair. Wear clothes that fit. No more pregnancy rumors!

    She has a c-section belly. Most c-section mommies look like we’re slightly pregnant if we don’t remember to suck it in”

    I’ve had two and as long as you work out, you don’t have that bulge at the bottom of tummy.

  32. heb says:

    I dunno dude, I think that bump is a little high to just be excess fupa…

  33. Kasey says:

    @ tmbg -“How is she going to carry a newborn and a 5 year old at the same time?” LMOL!

    I find it strange that she’d be pregnant and go out looking like this-TOO obvious. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think she’d do it (unfortunately these are bad pics that make her look like she’s not in her right mind and that’s exactly what they’re making me ponder-where’s her handler?).

    Anyway, as far as Kate’s comments, it could go one of two ways, 1-she really has counted the cost and doesn’t think its worth it so she’s talking it down b/c that’s not something she desires OR 2- it is something she desires, is taking longer than they thought and so she’s talking it down and not putting her hopes out there in public (a la Posh Spice Beckham). That way if it doesn’t happen there’s no face to save and if it does happen-hooray!

    And just for the record while Connor and Isabel ARE her siblings the age difference is enough for her to be treated and feel like an only child (its quite easy for even them to spoil her). I still think it is helpful for children to have siblings (close in age) to normalize them but for Suri there seem to be so many other factors to consider that might cancel out whatever positive effect a younger sibling might have on her.

  34. MoMo says:

    My guess is pregnant and dressing for comfort. Or pregnant and wearing what Suri picked out for her to wear!

  35. jannie says:

    I’m 2 months along with my 2nd child, and that is exactly what my (bloated) belly looks like. Just sayin…

  36. Cheyenne says:

    Bad posture and depression. I don’t think she cares what she looks like any more.

  37. Rio says:

    If the is pregnant, it’s a cause to celebrate! I means Chris Klein got work!

  38. Magsy says:

    It’s a face of an unhappy woman who is either depressed or carrying secrets I think. Her and Cruise-Bot have always been a mismatched couple. You gotta feel for her. She’s too young to look so miserable. Buy the woman a puppy or something I think Suri’s appeal has worn off.

  39. Lady Satan says:

    Very bad posture, awful fit to the jeans, and bloat-belly (too much carbs or just PMS?). Bad combination.

  40. Jilly Bean says:

    how the hell is she ever considered to be a fashionista???

  41. OXA says:

    I am going with knocked up cos at the thing the other night where Tom got his award she had boobs popping out of her dress.
    Also did anyone notice that on Tom’s big night there was no sign of Isabella?
    That is making it look like the rumour of her moving in with Nicole is true.

  42. harfang says:

    I dunno, that is pretty much what my dairy-and-cookies gut looks like. At least she looks relaxed… or something… :/

  43. Rachael says:

    she’s way thinner than the average person in America, which is a size 12. The fact that we pick on someone who is probably a size 6 is insanity.

  44. lisa says:


    Wow that was huge leap. How you got Brad/Angie into this

    I know Angelina is not a big fashion person.. but even in her all black she doesn’t look like this.

    Katie is married to Tom Cruise. And while some find him strange or whatever. he is still one of the biggest stars in the world. And I just shake my head that she would come out of her home looking like this. It almost seems on purpose.. like a FU.. to her “status as his wife”

    And this has not always been the case. But the last year or so she seems to love trying to see how homely she can look. Her hair looks unkempt and she looks like she wondered in off the street. YOU would not think she was married to a multi millionaire. I don’t like the celebrities that flaunt their designer this or that. Ones that dress for any trend. But there is a middle ground.

    What Katie is wearing is not it.

  45. gamblea says:

    what if she is pregnant and wore this tummy baring outfit in a bid to prove later on it’s not a pad?

  46. gamblea says:

    plus she’s been wearing a lot of billowy clothes lately.

  47. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Rachel: Where are we picking on her? Wishing she would stand up straight and care about her appearance are hardly ‘picking on her’.

  48. bagladey says:

    That looks like more than just a little bump.

  49. candy says:

    So this is the way she chooses to announce a pregnancy? Very strange. She is deep in thought about something. And what’s up with her ass? She doesn’t seem to have one.

  50. missy says:

    She doesn’t have great posture in general, but in these photos she’s clearly bending down to look at something, so I don’t see what the problem is. Personally, I don’t think she’s pregnant.

  51. june says:

    This is the real Katie, the midwestern gal who can dress anyway she wants. Poor girl looks dazed and confused, if not miserable.

  52. Paige says:

    she’s not preggers, its just an unfortunate top/ jeans combo!! she looks so sad…

  53. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Morticians: Interesting theory. And I’m sure if it IS true, Tom rides her about not doing enough to cure it through diet and exercise.

  54. riri says:

    How can she get pregnant, even if she wanted to?

    There’s a good reason Nicole or Tom’s first wife have never gotten pregnant.

    Katie was sporting her preg belly VERY EARLY on, when she started dating Tom.

    She looks miserable, she’s got the money to be financially independent and a father who can help her with the divorce.

    I have no idea why she stays.

  55. Isa says:

    Okay so now I doubt that she’s pregnant. When celebrities are pregnant they try to hide the bump with flowy tops.

    She looks so depressed. Like she has to drag herself out of bed everyday.

    And I’m not even sure why she owns those pieces, much less paired them together.

  56. Lia says:

    It looks like a pregnant belly. Definitely.

  57. truthzbetta says:

    Dazed and confused. And disheveled. Dayum she’s a Britney Speares twin.

    I’ll have what she’s having (next time I want to be so stoned I can stare at a sock for 7 hours).

  58. Newbie says:

    She looks pregnant to me. If she ain’t, then I feel sorry that she has no qualms about looking like she’s 4 months along. *eek*
    I don’t understand. If I had this kind of money, I’d look like an amazing goddess 24/7. Not that I’d never wear sweats or pajamas or whatnot, but how can these stars look more disheveled than the rest of us?!?! Especially when they leave the house?They’ve got access to the best of the best: clothes, treatments, food, stylists, etc. When they’re looking like they beat a regular gal of the same age by 10-15 years, I’m sorry, but I’ve got nothing else to conclude other than they must be miserable in their personal lives. I’d never let myself get to such a state with so many resources.

  59. bunkins says:

    skinny jeans are not for everyone

  60. ladybert62 says:

    I think she it not pregnant and I think she has been unhappy for a very long time.

  61. Kitty_Cal says:

    Ya know she is a woman… and women get bloated. Looks more like bloat than baby to me…

  62. original kate says:

    she always looks slightly stunned.

  63. Annie says:

    I guess not pregnant just weight gain since it looks like she’s gained in her love handles and thighs – if she was around 4 months pregnant I’d expect the gain to be more in her boobs; but they look the same. But who knows- every woman shows a bit differently.

  64. Kim says:

    WTF????? What is she wearing? She has just totally given up on even trying. Sad. She looks v preggers.

  65. mommyesq says:

    no, a baby bump would be much lower–like below her belly button. not prego, just a normal lady. wait, did i really just say “normal” in reference to katy holmes?!

  66. KsGirl says:

    Huh, lots of differing opinions but that DOES (to me) look like a pregnant belly.

  67. Renee says:

    Skinny low ride jeans are rarely flattering. Ugh.

  68. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Her spokesperson just released a statement to E! saying she is not pregnant.

  69. cruiz2 says:

    I think it’s muffin top for skinny people, she has mini back fat. Her butt crack is almost there. Pants too tight & low. I doubt she would be so blatant if she was pregnant.

    Her shopping coma like glance is down right spooky!

  70. libraesque says:

    I agree with everyone here who says it’s ghastly that she would leave the house looking this awful. I don’t have two nickels to rub together and I wouldn’t be caught dead looking like that

  71. Amy says:

    Either she is pregnant or she needs to lose the muffin top – either way, it’s her life.

  72. Go forward this really good job, I’ll support to the place.
