Is Bella Thorne pregnant? Ex-Disney star poses with hand on tummy at Cannes
Bella Thorne was seen suggestively cradling her belly while her fiance Benjamin Mascolo appeared to place his hands on her tummy when he hugged her at the Cannes event
Update: Bella Thorne's PR manager Eric Shiffer reached out to MEAWW (MEA Worldwide) to clear the air about the pregnancy rumors swirling around the actress and her fiance Benjamin Mascoloat ever since they were seen posing with their hands on Bella's tummy at Cannes Film Festival on Friday, July 16. "There is no truth to the rumor that Bella Thorne is pregnant," he told us via email.
Bella Thorne sparked pregnancy rumors after she posed in a cream-colored gown with her fiancé Benjamin Mascolo at the amfAR gala where she was seen placing her hand on her tummy. The former Disney star donned the floor-length dress which was covered in cream sequins as she joined a roster of A-list celebrities on the Friday night event on July 16, which was one of the highlights of the Cannes Film Festival.
The skin-tight gown flowed down in a tight skirt from Bella's waist and split down the middle, putting the actress' toned legs on display. She finished off her look with a pair of strappy black bedazzled heels, a pair of glimmering designer watches on her wrists, and several rings on each hand. Thorne pulled back her red tresses in a sleek up-do with the help of a bejeweled black headband. Perhaps the most stunning piece out of all her accessories was a pearl neckpiece with the word 'Ben' written in diamonds in the center.
Thorne and Mascolo got engaged in March after two years together. Her fiance kept up with Thorne's glitzy theme with bedazzled lapels on his black tuxedo. As they posed for pictures on the red carpet, before entering the star-studded event, Bella was seen suggestively cradling her belly while her fiance also appeared to place his hands on her tummy while hugging her. The couple has not announced that they are expecting a baby but that did not stop Thorne's fans from speculating wildly. While some were convinced that Thorne was pregnant, others thought that she was merely pretending to have a bun in the oven because she wanted the hype and attention.
'She's definitely pregnant'
"Will someone please ask her if she's bloody pregnant? Eyebrows are hideous," one person commented, while another quipped, "She's either fat, pregnant, or both." A third remarked, "I'm assuming she is pregnant or pushing her belly out to look pregnant." One more said, "Someone's not getting enough attentions. She wants people to think she's pregnant." The next wrote, "Shes gonna have a baby cause her career flopped and the only way to get attention now is by having a kid." Another added, "Wow, she was so subtle, everyone is going to be so surprised when she announces her pregnancy. Said nobody after the constant groping of her stomach."
One more commented, "Bella would be a terrible mother! She can barely keep herself clean and fed." A commenter tweeted, "The child is having a child. Lord save us all." Another chimed in, saying, "She's definitely pregnant." One of them noted, "I'm not sure if she's cradling her after meal tummy or she posed such way to make people speculate about her pregnancy? She definitely looks pregnant." A person reacted with, "If she's knocked up the fun is over for these two. Take away the week-long blow and tequila binges she's just another redhead with a screaming baby on her hip. He needs to do the right thing and drive her to the a-clinic pronto." One more wrote, "Of course her hand is on her stomach shes PREGNANT."
