Just a couple of weeks ago Jennifer Lopez finally announced that she’s pregnant. But the tabloids have already been talking about it for months. It seems like they might have known before the father!

But you sure wouldn’t have been able to tell that everyone’s favorite acting, singing and dancing Latina star is pregnant from looking at her tour schedule. Listen to Devan and Amanda talk about how being with child hasn’t slowed J.Lo down at all.

Amanda:  Have you heard about J-Lo?

Devan:  That she’s pregnant?

Amanda:  Yeah.

Devan:  I heard she’s pregnant with twins.

Amanda:  Are you sure? Because that’s Christina Aguilera.

Devan:  Christina Aguilera’s pregnant too?

Amanda:  I thought she had twins. Are you sure it’s J.Lo?

Devan:  Yeah, I saw it on U.S. Weekly, or Us Weekly.

Amanda:  I must have been listening incorrectly. So they’re both knocked up, but I thought one was having twins, Christina Aguilera, so I’m glad we had this conversation.

Devan:  J-Lo is having twins with Marc Anthony. That is the word according to People Magazine, Us Weekly and National Enquirer.

Amanda:  That’s awesome! I think it’s so interesting that she’s been on tour performing with her scantily clad tight leggings and no one even…well…There was a little love bump, but for the most part nobody knew.

Devan:  She can pull it off.

Amanda:  She totally pulled off performing and dancing and singing four months pregnant.

Devan:  Did you know she’s 39?

Amanda:  I did not know that. Well, Mark Anthony’s like 70, so…

Devan:  70? I think he’s 86, actually. But no, she looks hot!

Discussion

There’s a little confusion here. Both Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez are pregnant. They both denied it until very recently despite numerous reports in the press. According to the tabloids, J.Lo is the one having twins. It takes Devan and Amanda a minute to sort that out.

Amanda is amazed how J.Lo has been performing despite being four months pregnant. She says that J.Lo has started to show just a little bit, but that otherwise, she looks just the same.

Devan finds it surprising that J.Lo is 39 years old, because she looks so good. (In actuality, Devan is wrong. J.Lo is only 38.) Amanda and Devan joke that J.Lo’s husband, Marc Anthony is in his 70s or 80s. He’s actually only 39!

Why do you think J.Lo and Christina Aguilera denied being pregnant for so long?

In my point of view, being pregnant is a fairly good thing.In some ordinary person's eyes,being pregnant is nothing more than taking good care of the young life in the following months.However,the super stars themselves have to keep back their message to be pregnant so as to avoid pressmen's long list of interrogatories and questions.Because they have the right to preserve their privacy.
