Katy Perry fuels pregnancy rumours with intriguing Twitter posts and baby shop visits
Katy Perry’s whirlwind romance with Russell Brand certainly seems to have stepped up a gear in the past week. Fresh from the news that the pair had got engaged on New Year’s Eve whilst on holiday in India, the showbiz rumour mill went into overdrive with whispers that the 25-year-old singer may be pregnant.
So not a grand romantic gesture but a shotgun wedding? Some seem to think the loved-up pair are hiding a big secret, although one of the two isn’t doing a very good job of hiding it at all.
Twitter has played a major role in the celeb couple’s relationship so far, with the duo sharing photos and soppy messages left, right and centre. So it’s not surprising to hear that Katy Perry has let a few intriguing Twitter posts slip in recent days. On News Year’s Day she wrote on the micro blog site: “Let me tell you 2010 is BUMPIN!” and in a message to her comedian fiancé she wrote: “I heard ur prego-ed.”
The new IT couple headed out for a spot of lunch on Sunday in Hampstead, London. Katy proudly showed off her engagement ring as the pair dined at Café Rouge. According to a source at the eatery, Katy asked for her scrambled eggs to be “well done” and when they ordered chips she declared loudly to the waiter, “hold the mayo.” Pregnant women are advised against eating mayo as it contains uncooked eggs which can be harmful to unborn babies.
And if that wasn’t enough, Russell and Katy then made their may to a nearby baby shop and cooed over the little bootees on display.
Could it be that the love-struck couple simply can’t contain their excitement at the baby news, or are they having a laugh at the press’ expense? Only time will tell…
