Your Complete Photo Guide To Danielle And Kevin Jonas’ Alleged Fake Pregnancy

Danielle Jonas talking to Kevin Jonas GIF(via)

Update: seems like they found a baby somewhere! And she’s already making them money.

If you read Crushable on the regular, it will come as no surprise to you that I’m not convinced Danielle and Kevin Jonas didn’t fake their pregnancy, because I’ve been writing about it nonstop for months now. But if you haven’t read this site before — welcome! — and you better sit down and buckle up, because I’m about to unveil quite the conspiracy theory, documented with some photographic evidence so you can come to your own conclusions. Although I recommend just hopping aboard mine, because I give this way too much thought. (I’M A MONSTER.)

July 9th. The pregnancy is announced.

Danielle and Kevin Jonas first sonogram August 6th, 2013

August 6th. The first sonogram is released, via Danielle’s Instagram. That’s…a pretty developed head, ladies and gentlemen. When I showed it to a friend who’s had three kids herself, she guessed this kid was 26 weeks along. “Am I right??” she asked? I hope not, because if you are, Danielle is currently 51 weeks along…which would make her almost twelve months pregnant.

Given that she hasn’t popped a baby out yet and this was over 25 weeks ago, we’re supposed to believe that this little biscuit is only 15 weeks old. Mmmkay.

Danielle and Kevin Jonas sonogram August 29th, 2013

August 29th. A second ultrasound is shared, as is the sex of the baby (a girl!), something that you can’t typically find out until 18-22 weeks into a pregnancy. Remember this, because we’re coming back to it later.

September 10th. Danielle posts this photo to her Instagram, three months after the birth announcement and over a month after the first sonogram, looking zero percent pregnant.

October 7th. The first photo posted of Danielle showing really any sign of a bump.

October 17thBlind Gossip alleges that Danielle is faking her pregnancy.

Danielle Jonas October 24th, 2013

October 24th. Later that month, she posts a collage of herself with decidedly more growth, but still not as pregnant as I’d expect, given her timeline. I speculate that she might’ve worn the wrong belly to the gym.

Danielle Jonas November 4th, 2013

November 4th. Danielle goes back to looking not really that pregnant at all on a night out with Kevin.

November 13th. Danielle and Kevin cover Fit Pregnancy in a photo shoot that Blind Gossip later covered, with an employee giving an interview saying it was super awkward that all the employees had to pretend like the couple was really expecting.

November 18th. And the return of the belly to sew some baby clothes for the camera.

Danielle Jonas December 13th, 2013

December 13th. Looks like were boosting up to the next size! Ever notice how she or Kevin or whoever are holding up the belly in every photo they take together?

December 28th. OOPS YOUR BELLY. You accidentally lost it at the gym! That is apparently a really tricksy place for bellies.

January 7th. But there it is, you found it! And less than two weeks later! I guess we didn’t have an in-between belly ready, because we jumped straight from medium to large to medium and back to large again.

Danielle Jonas January 9th, 2014

January 9th. Bless this belly, for it has sinned.

January 10th. Kevin posts a video that’s supposedly of their daughter kicking in utero, but doesn’t actually show Danielle’s face.

Danielle Jonas pregnant in fan photo January 14th, 2014

January 14th. A fan, @jessgorman42, posts this photo to Twitter, and a commenter on Crushable alleges that you can see where the fake belly comes away from Danielle’s body on the top left side. Definitely suspicious.

January 15th. After people wondered why Danielle’s face didn’t appear in the first video, Kevin releases a second one in which Dani supposedly receives an ultrasound…with the computer monitor off, as you can see on the left. Classic doctor move, doing an ultrasound just for fun, with no image.

*It’s been revealed to me in the comments that this was probably just done with a Doppler fetal monitor, which allows you to hear the heartbeat without broadcasting an image. But still.

Danielle Jonas January 15th, 2014

January 15th. This belly must be fancy because it has a real live bellybutton on it. #highrollers.

Danielle Jonas January 19th, 2014

January 19th. Still pretty floppy though, if you don’t support it correctly. See how it melts into the couch!

Danielle Jonas January 24th, 2014

January 24th. And finally — no. Absolutely not. This is supposedly over a week after that mirror selfie in the gray shirt, and where is your belly, girl? Where has it gone to? You’re supposed to be nine months pregnant!

January 30th. The final day in the window that I gave Danielle and Kevin’s pregnancy. If she gestates for nine months like I’m pretty sure humans still do, she should’ve given birth yesterday. And knowing Danielle and her love of social media, if she was even one day late or confined to bed rest or anything, don’t you think she’d be tweeting, Instagramming, and interviewing up a storm? And yet — crickets.

February 6th. The alleged due date — moved from the original due date which was ‘early in the new year’. Based on the timeline and photos that I just laid out, she’ll be between 41 and 45 weeks along at that point.

February 2nd. The actual ‘birth date’, according to tweets and a photo posted with a not-at-all-sweaty Danielle in full make-up and jewelry with an infant in her arms who already has her eyes open. OKAY.

February 5th. Dreft, the apparent owners of this baby, allow Kevin to hold Alena Rose for a moment so they can upload a photo of him looking like a man holding a grenade instead of a human child whose creation he contributed to.

Congratulations, guys! Now that you found a kid, you better get to work milking this opportunity for all you’ve got!

    There are so many issues with your argument that I’m not sure I can cover everything.

    1) The baby was born two days after the end of her due date range. Not at all uncommon. My son was born five days after his due date. And February is still “early in the new year”. It’s not at the beginning of the year, but it’s certainly early in the year.

    2) The way that a woman carries changes from day to day. Most of your “belly change” pics either have her belly not completely showing, or the change is in the way she is carrying, not the size of her belly. I didn’t gain any weight except in my stomach when I was pregnant. My breasts got a little fuller after I gave birth, but that was it. I barely showed until I was nearly 25 weeks. And I never looked heavily pregnant. When I was admitted to L&D, I only measured about the size of an average 35 week belly–and I was nearly a week late. Before giving birth, I looked bigger on some days than others. Sometimes, my son would be curled up small, and I’d look tiny. Others, he’d be spread out as long as he possibly could get, and I’d look about ready to burst.

    3) On the topic of pregnant bellies, have you ever carried a baby before? When you are pregnant, your abs separate. You are carrying everything with your back. Supporting your belly with your hand helps relieve the strain on your back if only a little bit. And it’s quite common to support your belly on a pillow or something similar when lying down–it’s just that much more comfortable. And putting a hand on your stomach is simply a way of showing “Hey, look at my belly!” Pretty much any pregnancy photos will have a hand of the belly.

    4) I actually looked pretty good after birth, if I do say so myself. The baby has obviously already been cleaned and looked at. While my son was being cleaned and looked at, I was cleaning my face with a washcloth. And since they knew they’d be having photos taken, she probably took the time to put on make-up and brush her hair–like every single other celeb who’s ever taken a photo like that.

    5) Most babies open their eyes soon after birth. My son was opening his eyes within half an hour or birth. It’s not uncommon at all.

  • Britanni Oord

    This is the most ridiculous article I have EVER read. First of all, you CAN find out the gender as early as 14 weeks with the 3D sonograms. Second, you CAN be this tiny and barely look pregnant, I only gained 8 pounds during mine. Third, our due date CAN change anytime. My daughter was 5 days late, news flash, babies can come whenever they want. Fourth, pregnancy is 40 weeks, which is the beginning of the TENTH month and you not considered overdue to most doctors until you are 42 weeks pregnant. This whole article is ridiculous. She does look pregnant. And the video of the baby kicking, You can’t see my face in mine either so I guess I was not really pregnant. So this while article is stupid and completely inaccurate as to how pregnancy actually goes.

    • Britanni Oord

      Also with the other video, when you got o your appointment they always listen to the heartbeat using a fetal doppler. Not the ultrasounds machine.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Agree to disagree!

    • Britanni Oord

      Lol okay disagree with facts,

    • bridget

      40 weeks is NOT 10 months… If it were, 52 weeks would be 13 months!

      I gave birth on my due date (which is 40 weeks after the first day of your last period) and I was pregnant for exactly 9 months and 5 days, if counting the two weeks before conception that you’re not pregnant. If we count from the date of conception, it was 8 months and 19 days.

  • hannah

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have read. If you as any doctor they will tell you, every pregnancy is different. Making these accusations of false pregnancy due to the size of a belly. The way a person sits and so on is completely outrageous. How do you explain those people that don’t know they are pregnant and never show at all? I’m 37 weeks pregnant right now and my belly looks different every day. Some days it looks smaller and if I sit or lean a certain way it looks like Danielle’s belly. But then again I must not be pregnant either. I must have gotten a fake sonogram. Btw. No doctor is going to make an appointment to preform a “fake” sonogram.. famous or not.
    That thing they are using on her belly in that video is a dopler, they’re these cool little things used to listen to a babies heart.

    I find it rude that someone would try to ruin one of the most exciting times of someone’s life. Especially something that they hold so dear.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Just because they’re wearing a white coat doesn’t mean they’re a doctor.

    In the ultrasound, what’s strange to me is when she laughs her belly doesn’t move at all. These two clowns deserve each other. What a couple of freaks, faking a pregnancy.

  • Britanni Oord

    I just went and looked at their instagrams and she looks like she just had a baby. She looks worn out, tired, and she has the after baby belly you get right after birth. Im sorry you can’t fake that saggy belly. Also their daughter looks a lot like Kevin. So really, I don’t buy it. Especially looking at all the facts of pregnancy.

  • Mel

    Bellies look different (and vary greatly in size) depending on which way the baby is positioned at the moment. As well as how mum is positioned, her posture, whether she’s sitting, or standing. You’re a troll. This woman just did something amazing with her body and should be allowed to be happy. For the record lots of women stay in make up for labor, and some infant’s eyes open within the first minute. I’m just curious if you’ve ever seen real life newborns or babys? IF she didn’t really get pregnant . . . it still wouldn’t be any of your business. Get a life.

  • ink

    The fan pic: Dani always holds her stomach like that. like the pillow will fall out. Nearly all mamas to be often have hands on tummy but across it like a caress not holding it up from bottom – weird and awkward. movie pillow babies are very life like once I didn’t even know and the entire belly was exposed, I wonder if this means belly was not very expensive and well made until the final 9 month one? Though even if it was well done strapping on a pillow for a few hours every day will still make you think it will fall off. The pulling away looks like the start of pillow, not a shirt crease.

  • JH

    These are the kind of stories I read just for the comments. For the record, you can find out the gender much earlier than 18-22 was with the Harmony blood test, which is used to screen for genetic anomalies. I want to say as early as 10-12 wks, but I’m not 100% sure. Also my ultrasound picture at 13 weeks looks more defined than that 16 wk one, so maybe it depends on the quality of the machine. And at 21 wks, no one would know I was pregnant if I hadn’t told them, bc I’m not showing in normal clothes yet, but i do have a slightly more noticeable tummy in fitted clothes, such as my workout gear.

  • Rachelxoxo

    I was lucky and only gained weight in my belly both times I was pregnant, but I still very much looked like I stuffed a basketball under my shirt when I was 8-9 months. Plus my belly button started protruding early on and all I’m saying is, if your belly button sticks out when you’re pregnant it doesn’t just come and go no matter what you wear (undershirts be damned.) ….just saying

  • Rana

    My baby had her eyes open immediately after I gave birth to her. The first picture I have of her she is looking at the camera! So that’s not really proof of anything. My belly would also look huge sometimes and barely there other times, up until the day I gave birth. So I don’t know. I was BEYOND convinced Beyonce was NOT pregnant. This one though, I’m not sure about. Sucks because I am a sucker for a good conspiracy theory!

  • Sarah

    Clearly the author of this was never pregnant. That is a completely normal looking ultrasound pic for 15 weeks. Mine looked like that at 13! As for the bump, a lot of it can change a bit depending on what maternity pants/leggings you wear. I only gained 25 pounds and barely looked pregnant till I was 6 months. As for the eyes being open, the first thing I saw when my son was handed to me was his wide open eyes staring back at me. This article is really stretching it.

  • Bridget

    My daughter’s eyes were wide open minutes after she was born. Not all babies have closed eyes right after being born, or perhaps my pregnancy was fake, too!

    Not that I believe they had sex and had a baby, but a baby’s eyes being open isn’t proof the baby is a few days old.

  • Amber

    Clearly this person has never been pregnant. I grew 3 sizes over night. And depending on where my son was laying it often looked like my belly was completely to the left, right, up, or down. Actually most of the time my belly was off center. This person also must be a man and not realize that certain shirts can either make your belly look bigger and some make you look thinner. And that is why it appears she has grown then shrunk. And technically it’s 40 weeks pregnant the doctors count gestation before you may have conceive to get a more accurate due date. When you find out your pregnant they ask you when your last period was. They assume like most women you released an egg about two weeks after Your period and add 40 weeks. There is really no way to tell how old your baby really is in the womb. And every baby grows and develops differently. My sonogram looked a lot like that at 20 weeks. And lastly, my favorite, how and the heck was Kevin supposed to video both his wife’s belly (of the baby kicking because you do have to get close to see it being that the baby was very small) and he face at the same time.

    • Amber

      Oh and two more thingsI did NOT want people taking pictures of me until I was cleaned up, they got the sweat off of me and I fixed my hair. I’m kinda insecure with my self, like Danielle appears to be and I don’t want peoples to to see me like that. And Last my so. Had his eyes wide open staring at everybody and there was not one scratch or bruise in him only birth Goo :) that is easily cleaned off when he was born. If you don’t believe me my husband posted his new born picture on Facebook. That’s all. Let’s not take away this family’s blessing even if it was fake good for them for adopting. I am a huge supporter of adopting.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Great detective skills! Except I am not a man.

  • Lynn

    I’m guessing you’ve never been pregnant, been to a pre-natal doctor visit or even witnessed a baby being born. I’m sure you have better things to do, than invest your time and energy into saying their pregnancy was a fake….really? A baby’s eyes can open as early as their head enters the world…they’re not kittens. My baby looked right at me, as soon as the doctors pulled her out and laid her on my stomach.
    I hope they never see such negative attention, as you’re sending out and maybe if your lucky, one day you’ll experience this same miracle. Then you’ll be writing from a whole different perspective.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      In fact, I don’t have better things to do. This is my job.

  • not

    It looks so strange in that white blouse…and sometimes she has a bellybutton…sometimes she does not…The belly is too high in a couple of pictures…She has no pics in bikini….no one saw her belly naked…and her face too…Every pic was planned…like a calendar or a response to a comment.Maybe they had problems getting pregnant…not a shame…they had a surogate mom…not shame…again…But…sorry…everything about that couple looks strange…she is shy, depressed, she looks unhappy…he looks like he does not know what he s doing…their discussions are empty and ridiculous..a bad game of husband and wife…and now mom and dad..I don t live in the US…I watched the show…and they look like bad actors from the biginning. So: beeing an outsider: it may be their baby…but in those pics and with the news and all that…I really dont think the pregnancy was real. Never a bikini photo?? Not one??And why are they holding that belly all the time? Why are not family members in the photos? Parents, grandparents…Shady…sorry

  • Sam D

    1. You can find out gender early with genetic testing via amnio or cvs testing
    2. My baby’s eyes were opened wider than that after just being born. I was allowed to wear all my jewelry, I wasn’t very sweaty, and if I wanted I could have worn makeup.
    3. Maternity pants go over your stomach and create a line at the top of it.
    4. Google 15 week ultrasound you are wrong.
    5. Babies aren’t automatically born on their due dates!
    6. I can’t believe someone who knows nothing about pregnancy was allowed to write this. For all you know she could have been monitored during her pregnancy more closely because it was high risk or maybe just because she’s rich. I have so many more points but it’s pointless because you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about.

    And for the people who have never heard the “pregnancy is 10 months” line you clearly have never been pregnant! The drs consider you pregnant from your last period even though you aren’t even pregnant yet(and hadn’t even conceived!). It makes little sense but that’s how it’s done!

    Also I don’t even like the Jonas and I find it hugely bizarre that dreft is posting pics of them that’s how I came across this dumb article. (Trying to figure out why they have dreft ads on their pics and why the marketing person at dreft thinks their whole Instagram should be about the Jonas)
