Update: they found a baby somewhere! And don’t worry, she’s already making them money.
It’s been a few months since I’ve said this, but I still don’t think that Danielle Jonas is pregnant. Not only is the timing not working out, but there is yet another blind item out that suggests this whole thing is a sham. Walk with me.
As I’ve discussed in painstaking detail in this post, Danielle and Kevin Jonas announced the pregnancy on July 9th, 2013, six months ago. Typically a pregnancy announcement would suggest that they were out of the first trimester, aka at least three months along, but let’s give them the benefit of the doubt and pretend that they discovered they were pregnant after Danielle’s first missed period and immediately announced it. That would put conception at June 9th, at the very earliest. So we’re looking at a due date between January 9th and March 9th, assuming humans still gestate for nine months.
EXCEPT. They announced that the baby is a girl on August 29th, based on an ultrasound that should’ve happened between 18 and 22 weeks into a pregnancy, as it’s sketchy to be able to tell before then. Especially when it’s a girl and there’s no…um…junk readily available to help you out. So assuming that Danielle Jonas was 18-22 weeks pregnant on August 29th, then her due date is between January 2nd and January 30th.
…meaning that she should either have a baby already at this moment or be coming up on nine months pregnant. Neither of which she appears to be, given the pictures we’ve seen lately, like the one at the top of the page, from just two days ago. Also adding to our suspicions is this recent item from Blind Gossip, which implies that she wasn’t pregnant during that extremely awkward Fit Pregnancy cover shoot either, and that everybody knew it:
“Craziest f*cking [photo] shoot ever! We’ve shot hundreds of pregnant women, and this one was supposed to be a pregnant celebrity mom keeping fit… except we knew that [she] WASN’T PREGNANT!!! However the whole crew we were warned not to say anything and to pretend like everything was normal! WTF?! There were lots of moms on the set and we are all usually real hands on with wardrobe and positioning etc but on this one we were told to back the f*ck off. The fake belly was so totally obvious! It was one of those prosthetic ones I’ve seen used on film sets but we had to pretend like it was REAL! [She] tried to hold it in place but that thing kept shifting around like crazy!!! One of us instinctively moved in to position it but was pulled back because [the photo subject] looked like she was going to have a panic attack. The strangest thing was that her and [her husband] stood around talking about it like it was actually real. Are they both mentally ill??? Then we had to participate in this weird baby shower party and give them gifts for their imaginary baby. Awkward!!!”
Add to that the fact that the due date has apparently been moved from ‘just after the new year’ to February 6th, according to Page Six. I’ve heard of babies coming late, but I’ve never heard of the due date itself being moved, especially by a month. Where’s the baby guys? WHERE IS IT?
