Katie Holmes was not hiding a baby bump while walking around New York City in late April, despite false speculation from an unreliable tabloid. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. A rep for the actress tells us sheâ€™s not pregnant.
The latest issue of Womanâ€™s Day notes that Holmes was spotted wearing a baggy sweater while taking a stroll in New York, which was enough for the magazine to assume sheâ€™s carrying a child. The untrustworthy outlet first insists the actressâ€™s choice of clothing â€śhad onlookers wonderingâ€ť if sheâ€™s pregnant, but the tabloid fails to mention the identity of these supposed â€śonlookers.â€ť
From there, the publication starts theorizing about who might be the father of the actressâ€™s supposed baby. The first guess is Jamie Foxx, who the actress casually dates. The second guess is former â€śDawsonâ€™s Creekâ€ť co-star Joshua Jackson, who sheâ€™s not romantically involved with at all.
As Gossip Cop has repeatedly noted, Holmes and Foxx have a casual relationship and enjoy spend time together when their schedules allow it, but theyâ€™re not planning to get married or have children. In fact, People recently reported the two â€śdonâ€™t want to be labeled as a coupleâ€ť and donâ€™t consider themselves as such. Meanwhile, the actressâ€™s rep recently told us she hadnâ€™t seen Jackson in years prior to Marchâ€™s â€śDawsonâ€™s Creekâ€ť reunion. That rules out both of these alleged â€śbaby daddies.â€ť
A pregnancy can be ruled out as well. The tabloidâ€™s baseless article is purely speculative and doesnâ€™t have a single source to back any of it up. The idea that the actress might be carrying a child because she was wearing a baggy sweater is just ridiculous. In fact, the Daily Mail shared photos of Holmes at the Tribeca Film Festival around the same time, and noted she showed off a â€śtoned torsoâ€ť and â€śtrim physiqueâ€ť on the red carpet.
Meanwhile, Holmes was photographed wearing a white T-shirt while walking around New York City this past Saturday. A white T-shirt isnâ€™t what one wears when they want to hide a baby bump, which the actress clearly didnâ€™t have. Regardless, Holmesâ€™ rep told Gossip Cop on the record that sheâ€™s not expecting.
Itâ€™s also worth mentioning, Gossip Cop debunked similarly wrong speculation about Holmes having a baby bump while on a date night with Foxx less than two weeks ago. That wasnâ€™t the case then and itâ€™s no more accurate now.
