Hilary Duff’s baby bump is growing by the minute, but that doesn’t mean her summer beach days are behind her … far from it, in fact. Hilary and her boyfriend, Matthew Koma, hit up a beach in Malibu Tuesday for a little R&R as they await the…
Jenelle Evans … her whole entire life is just too much.
There’s always something going on with her, it’s never good, and it’s just. Too. Much.
Since Jenelle has three kids and has been pregnant at least two more times (her abortion with Courtland Rogers and her miscarriage before she got pregnant with Ensley), she’s pretty much constantly the subject of pregnancy rumors.
Except this time around, there’s a little more to the rumors than “hey, she sure is fertile!”
Last month, Jenelle posed for some photos with her husband, David Eason.
She was wearing a bikini, and her stomach wasn’t completely flat, which makes sense, because again, she’s had three kids.
So when they shared the photos on Instagram, their followers were quick to ask if she was pregnant again.
Then, over on Facebook, David actually confirmed the rumors, saying that she’s 13 weeks along, and they already know it’s another little girl.
Pretty wild, right?
Except David is fond of trolling Teen Mom fans, and also he originally commented that Jenelle was six months pregnant, not just 13 weeks.
We imagine that he realized someone would have noticed by now if she was six months pregnant, and being just 13 weeks along is a lot more believable.
But still, lots and lots of people believed him, and so now all those people are just going about their lives, thinking that Jenelle’s cooking up yet another kid.
So imagine their surprise when she shared this photo:
As you can see, it’s another ad for that detox tea she’s been promoting forever.
She looks great, doesn’t she? And her waist is so small!
Like, it looks like it’s just a little bigger than her arm there, which doesn’t seem very normal, but wow, that tea must be working!
Just kidding, the general consensus is that she Photoshopped the hell out of this picture.
“Omg that photoshopping is horrendous,” one of her followers wrote. “Even your leggings look screwed up like a skirt. Is there anything you can do right?”
“Your photoshopped photo doesn’t make you look very good,” another commented.
Someone suggested that she work on her photo editing skills because right now, her edits are “too obvious.”
And if you’re having trouble seeing exactly where the editing happened, one person pointed out “Where her tummy is you can see that wood line bending.”
But while many people were talking about whether or not she’d edited this photo, others were concerned about her unborn child.
“Can you take this if you’re pregnant?” one of those people asked. “Heard you were.”
Another said “Should you even be taking that aren’t you pregnant with another girl?”
So what’s actually happening here?
Is she really that thin these days?
Did she edit the photo to hide a baby bump?
Or did she edit the photo because in real life, her tummy is a little less flat than this?
We’re going to have to go with that last option.
Here’s a bikini photo that David posted last week — sorry in advance for the vulgarity and any potential scarring on your psyche this may cause:
If you look at her stomach there, it looks great, obviously, and it’s pretty clear it’s not edited.
You can see the loose skin she has from all those pregnancies and everything.
Again, she looks really good there, besides the super weird pose, and not the least bit pregnant, but there’s a clear difference between this picture and that ad.
Jenelle, girl, when are you going to learn that you’re perfect just the way you are?!
On the outside, at least.
Mackenzie Standifer sure has been busy lately, huh?
Between trying to spin getting fired from Teen Mom OG, taking care of Ryan Edwards, and being very pregnant, she’s definitely had her hands full.
It must be exhausting to have so much drama in your life, but somehow, she’s managed.
Let’s do a quick recap, just for fun, OK?
Last year, we learned that Ryan Edwards was addicted to heroin.
Well, first we learned that he was addicted to something, thanks to some heartbreaking scenes of Maci Bookout on Teen Mom OG.
Fans had suspected that something was up with Ryan for a long, long time because honestly, he’s been filmed looking super, super high for a while now.
And then when we saw him nodding off while driving himself and Mackenzie to their rushed parking lot wedding, it became painfully clear that something was very wrong.
During that terrifying scene, Mackenzie was heard asking Ryan if he’d taken Xanax, but a few months later, after he came back from rehab, he admitted that he’d been shooting up heroin.
Oh, and another thing happened when he came back from rehab: he tried hitting up girls on Tinder for hookups, because that’s something newlyweds do.
Things were weird for a while between him and Mackenzie, or at least they seemed that way on the show, but in January, she became pregnant.
Because hey, why not?
We didn’t hear about the pregnancy until March, when it was discussed on the show, and although it didn’t come up until the last couple of episodes of the season, it was super awkward.
Ryan didn’t seem interested in having another baby at all — at one point, he even told Mackenzie to call him when the kid turned three.
Coincidentally, he was arrested the same week the pregnancy news broke.
He’d violated the parole he’d received from a previous arrest after failing a drug test, and although he didn’t face any real consequences for anything, he and Mackenzie both sort of went into hiding after that.
But unless you’re thinking that maybe they’re back in the spotlight for good reasons, don’t get your hopes up — they got back on Instagram and did an interview because they’ve been fired from Teen Mom OG.
According to reports, Maci threatened to quit unless MTV stopped filming them, and not because she was being petty, but because she believes Ryan is still using, and she doesn’t want their son to be able to see footage of that anymore.
It seems like there was a bit of time before MTV decided what to do, and during that time they hired Bristol Palin to replace Maci.
But eventually, they decided to stick with their OG golden girl, and last week, they informed Ryan and Mackenzie that they were out.
As Ryan explained it, “They didn’t want to see another recovering addict storyline. So they’re writing us out of the show right now and making it seem like we dipped out on our baby, on Bentley and on everyone.”
“And that’s just not the case.”
In addition to making statements about how wonderful everything is (and how wrong Maci is), they’ve also been very active on Instagram.
Ryan’s been rambling about how we’ll all learn the truth soon, and Mackenzie’s been sharing updates on her pregnancy.
And yesterday, she shared a rare full-body bump pic!
A lot of people don’t like Mackenzie because they think she’s manipulative and mean and all sorts of bad things, but she looks amazing here, right?
She’s also looking pretty big — she’s more than halfway through her pregnancy already!
Ryan has said that she’s due in October, and sources have claimed that her exact due date is October 16th, so we’ve got less than three months to go before a new Edwards baby is born.
They’re having a boy, and though they haven’t announced a name yet, a few reports have stated that they’ll name him Jagger.
We’re still nervous about all of this, because it’s hard to be excited for a pregnancy when the father is as big a mess as Ryan is, but let’s hope for the best, OK?
Back in May, Mackenzie Standifer disappeared from social media.
Her reasons were obvious, of course.
Standifer's husband, Ryan Edwards, has been involved in just about every sort of scandal imaginable in the past few months.
The downward spiral began when Edwards got arrested several months ago, and it's continued in shocking fashion ever since.
At a certain point, Mackenzie probably got sick of dealing with a new controversy every time she logged in.
Fans are happy to see Standifer back on Instagram — but they still have a lot of questions about her absence.

Despite rumors that Jinger Duggar has secretly given birth, it appears that the beloved reality star is very much still pregnant.
The mom-to-be offered up some photographic of her current condition on Instagram last night:
“Almost there! Vuolo #38weeks4days,” she captioned the image.
Obviously, Jinger was able to say it all with just a few words in this case.
But she was feeling much more expressive in a recent interview with TLC.
“I get scared thinking about birth and labor,” she told her home network.
Yes, over the years, Jinger has earned her reputation as the most candid and forthcoming Duggar, and she’s cemented her claim to that title in the final weeks of her pregnancy.
When Us Weekly caught up with Jinger recently, the 24-year-old revealed that carrying a baby had taken a serious toll on her energy levels:
“I do think probably what surprised me most [about pregnancy] is just being so tired all the time,” she revealed.
“They’ve said, ‘Just take a nap, don’t feel bad when you need to lay down in the middle of the day.’”
“Especially when I was in all the morning sickness, I talked to them a lot about what they did, how they got through their morning sickness and I think that was some of the best advice — just resting, taking it easy.”
Jinger is regarded as a bit of a rebel in the Duggar clan, so it’s appropriate that her pregnancy hasn’t conformed to her family’s customs.
For starters, Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, broke with convention by waiting almost a year after their wedding to get pregnant.
On top of that, Jinger will soon become the first of her sisters to give birth outside of the family’s home state of Arkansas.
She and Vuolo moved to Laredo, Texas shortly after getting hitched.
In recent weeks, it’s been rumored that Jinger and Jeremy will move to Los Angeles after the baby is born so that he can pursue a divinity school degree.
Needless to say, Jinger’s pumpkin will be living a much more worldly life than his or her cousins.

There’s good news for Jersey Shore fans: Deena Cortese is pregnant with her first child!
Deena and her husband, Christopher, are expecting a baby boy within the next six months.
And now she’s giving fans and followers their first-ever real look at her baby bump. Take a look!
Back in 2016, Deena became engaged to Christopher Buckner. This was after her stint on the first run of Jersey Shore.
It was also a couple of years after she appeared on Couples Therapy.
The two of them tied the knot just before Halloween in 2017.
And now they’re expecting a baby together. They held off on sharing the good news until they were ready, but they just had to let fans know.
Take a look at Deena’s baby bump at 14 weeks!
In the captions, Deena writes: “Excited to share our pregnancy journey with all of you!!”
“Our first bump pic,” she says beside the photo of her cradling her baby bump while wearing a stunning and form-fitting cobalt dress.
She follows that with two turquoise heart emojis. (They may have appeared blue on some screens)
“Don’t worry,” Deena assures her fans and followers. “I won’t post bump pics every single week! Lol”
Surely no one would mind. Once a week is not a lot of Instagram photos.
“But this,” Deena says. “Is the first!!”
It sure is.
In the background of the photo, the sign for 14 weeks has some blanks filled in.
At this stage of her pregnancy, the fetus has about the same volume as a decent-sized lemon.
Deena is feeling both tired and excited — both of which are very understandable.
She is craving, she reveals, three things in particular:
Candy, Fruit, and ice pops.
Deena and Christopher found out that they were especting a boy at one of those goofy color-coded gender reveal parties.
On July 1, the couple announced their good news all at once.
“Chris and I Decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans!” Deena’s post began.
“Now that we are safely into our second trimester,” Deena wrote. “Us and our little monkey are ready to tell the world Our little family is growing.”
Deena gushed: “We have a sweet little boy on the way!”
“We Are truly blessed,” Deena’s announcement post continued. “And our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness.”
She even revealed the due date — she really dumped all of this info at once!
“December,” Deena teased. “Can’t come soon enough!”
That is so soon!
“Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John,” Deena added, revealing the name of their future baby.
Those are two of the most common names in the English-speaking world, so we hope that Christopher John really likes either nicknames or his initials.
Deena promises: “You are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!”
That is just so sweet to hear. You always want what’s best for any child, and it sounds like Deena and her husband are prepared to give little Christopher John just that.
Just a couple of months ago, the world learned that Cardi B is pregnant. Now, she’s putting her baby bump on display on the cover of Rolling Stone.
How do we know this? Because the cover leaked early. Whoops.
Take a look below, and see Cardi and Offset each write about how much it means to them.
The cover of Cardi B’s Rolling Stone cover leaked, but she wasn’t going to let that keep her down — so she just posted the image herself.
She is so excited about it that her enthusiasm spilled over into her captions on Instagram.
Cardi writes: “I guess it was too much to ask to wait until the official July release of our @rollingstone cover!”
The image that she shares features her and Offset. Offset is kissing her bare and very pregnant belly, and she appears to be wearing only a long, black gown.
This shows off her baby bump and her peacock tattoo. Offset is fully dressed in what appears to be a red velvet suit.
Cardi continues, gushing: “This cover is so special to me and means so much!”
Remember, we’re just barely over a year since “Bodak Yellow” was released. This level of fame and acclaim is still new to Cardi.
“Thank you to everyone who helped put this amazing cover together!” she writes.
Though Cardi took the leak in stride, she does point out that it wasn’t supposed to look like that.
It was supposed to, she says, look black and white.
“Even tho it was leaked and suppose to be In gray,” Cardi mentions. “F–k it.”
The good folks over at Starcasm made an edit of how the cover was perhaps intended to appear.
Take a look:
Cardi says that she will, instead of nitpicking, focus on the positive.
“My daughter made it to the Rollin Stone cover !!!!” she writes.
Her enthusiasm is palpable.
“Official release in July,” Cardi writes. “You can’t [ruin] what’s for me.”
That sounds like a very healthy attitude!
We look forward to seeing the cover as it is released — and reading the accompanying article (which, to be clear, did not leak).
Offset also shared the leaked cover on Instagram.
He also shared his enthusiasm.
“Rolling Stone cover,” he wrote in all caps, with a space between each letter.
(In internet dialects, putting a space between each letter can be used to emphasize your words, sometimes for comedic effect)
“Beautiful shoot,” Offset says, referring to the photoshoot that he and fiancee Cardi B did.
Offset concludes: “Can’t wait ‘til my daughter get here.”
Now, some have remarked that this Rolling Stone cover isn’t the best photo of Cardi.
And … they’re right. And no, this isn’t about the baby bump. It also isn’t about Offset, though many believe that he’s not good for Cardi.
While the no-pants look is always an inspired choice (pants are the worst) and Cardi herself is gorgeous, we think that we identified what people are finding off-putting.
It might be the wig. It’s not her best wig.
But the point of her making the cover is the celebration of her accomplishment. She has soared into the stratosphere of music in just a year.
Also, we really look forward to reading that article.
It’s been two months since news of Ryan Edward’s arrest brought the Teen Mom OG star’s whole world crashing down.
Just one day after news that Ryan had been picked up for a probation violation came reports that he had once again been caught cheating on Mackenzie Standifer, his wife of one year, who is currently pregnant with his girlfriend.
Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Edwards’ ex, Maci Bookout, had filed for a restraining order after being threatened by Ryan.
Needless to say, all of this hasn’t made for a terribly tranquil pregnancy for poor Mackenzie.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that Ryan’s beleaguered wife has decided to take a hiatus from social media.
But Mack didn’t just delete her account, like most social media stars who have had enough.
No, she wisely realized that an Instagram page with a six-figure following is valuable virtual real estate.
So she gifted the page to her friend, photographer Christian C. George.
And as a reward for not unfollowing him as soon as Mackenzie jumped ship, George offers up the occasional gem, such as the photo above.
That’s the first pic of Mackenzie’s baby bump, posted by George this afternoon.
“When Mack told me about how much her quality of life improved since letting go of social media a couple of months back I didn’t totally understand,” he captioned the pic.
“I see social media as a marketing tool and an additional stream of revenue for influencers. However, what price was she paying? Since I took over Mackenzie’s account- I expected people to unfollow (because after all they didn’t follow me- they followed her).”
George went on to say that he’s learned some lessons from walking a mile in Mackenzie’s shoes:
“What I didn’t expect was the trail of bullying to continue,” he wrote. “These are examples of the messages I’ve received:
“‘You’re f—ng ugly just like Mackenzie, your pictures suck and so do you, you’re trash, why did your ugly face show up on my timeline today.’
“It’s unfortunate that these types of cyber attacks actually exist. I’m choosing to find peace with Jesus, and thanking Him for His Amazing grace and truth!”
Then Christian encouraged you to “learn more about” him, but let’s be honest, that’s not what you came here for.
Anyway, it’s nice to see that Mackenzie is doing well (no word yet on whether she’s still with Ryan), and it’s kind of cool that she discovered such an innovative way to put her old IG account to good use.
Very savvy. Maybe she is the right person to replace Farrah Abraham, after all!
Watch Teen Mom OG online to relive the wildly bumpy road that brought Mackenzie to where she is today.
But Kenya isn’t backing down, and now she’s silencing those hateful rumors in a more proactive way.
She’s posted a photo of her baby bump. Take a look!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore has had to grapple with some nasty “theories,” even more than your average reality star.
Some so-called “fans” have accused her of faking her pregnancy and marriage … all evidence to the contrary.
The reason for these accusations basically comes down to the widespread reports that Kenya’s job was in jeopardy last year after her secret wedding to Marc Daly.
(Marc also avoided Bravo’s cameras for a long time, reportedly over objections to how black men are portrayed on the series)
Some fans were convinced that Kenya would do anything in order to stay relevant and interesting enough to stay a Real Housewife and avoid losing her peach.
Those accusations spilled into comments under her social media posts, and seemed to have her feeling rattled. That is understandable.
Hopefully, now that the world has seen this photo, Kenya can continue her pregnancy in peace.
Kenya’s baby bump isn’t the most pronounced that we’ve ever seen, but it’s there.
Remember, we only learned that Kenya was pregnant … gosh, it hasn’t even been three whole months yet. And she said herself that she announced it very early.
Kenya included a caption, writing:
“Won’t He do it? #godswill #love #hope #faith #family #God #peace”
Kenya and Marc used IVF in order to conceive, but it sounds like Kenya is relying upon her faith to see her through what could potentially be a risky pregnancy.
Having your first child at 49 can be a big deal, folks.
Kenya’s fans and followers took to the comments to express and share their excitement.
“I’m excited for you can’t wait to see your baby!!!!”
Others were more succinct, writing:
“Awww congratulations queen.”
Some fans immediately thought about those who had trolled Kenya’s comments with accusations that her pregnancy was just manufactured so that Bravo would keep her on the show.
“I guess They can All go find Someone Else to Hate on Now.”
Some of her fans were positively jubilant … about her very effective shut-down of haters and trolls.
“Twirl On ‘THAT’ All You haters. SHE GOT ALL OF YOU GOOD. HAHA.”
That said, some people did decide to post comments that either betrayed their ignorance … or were very shady.
“Are you with child?”
It’s been common knowledge that Kenya is pregnant since the news broke back in April, but … some fans can miss whole chunks of someone’s life in the blink of an eye.
Still, it could be shade over her tiny baby bump.
(Baby bumps grow over time, folks)
Kenya is very sensitive when certain aspects of her family life are the topic of unfounded rumors.
This is her first pregnancy. Given her age (not that she’s old — just old to be pregnant), it’s entirely understandable that she’s touchy about it.
She’s also happily maried to Marc, even though some people have tried to cast doubt on that, too.
We hope that the trolls will give Kenya some peace now that she’s put her baby bump on display for all to see.
