“Honey, That’s Just Belly”: Kimora Lee Simmons Shuts Down Rumors She’s Pregnant With Fifth Child
I don’t know if you noticed, but there was a rumor going around over the weekend that Kimora Lee Simmons was pregnant with her fifth child.
It all started when Simmons stepped out for the KLS boutique opening in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. She wore a long and loose-fitting dress for the occasion on Thursday. According to sources like WetPaint, it seemed that Kimora “was possibly hiding something seemingly protruding under her garb…like a baby bump.”
But Simmons says that “protruding thing under her garb” is nothing but her stomach, a stomach that is a bit bigger than usual due to the fact that she just gave birth to her son Wolfe in April. “Honey, that’s just belly,” Simmons told Fashionista magazine.
So relaxed attire is the name of the game. And she’s integrated a lot of loose-fitting but fashionable clothing into her line at KLS.
“I call it easy dressing,” Simmons said. “We do pieces that are form-fitting. But you don’t have to have a perfect body to look perfect in our pieces. I mean, I just had a baby — he’s right over there — and they’re already asking me if I’m pregnant, honey. I tell them, no that’s just the belly I didn’t lose. I’m wearing it and I’m not anybody’s size two, I’m a size-you-know-who, honey.”
Of course, we know Simmons isn’t alone in having to field questions about her changing body and whether or not she’s pregnant. Tia Mowry told the Huffington Post she is sick and tired of being sick and tired of people inquiring about what’s going on in her uterus.
“I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show…I’m just enjoying life and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am. But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate.”
Simmons isn’t going the whole stop-body-shaming-me route, but she does want to make it clear that there’s no bun in her oven. Instead, she’s just content and comfortable with her post-baby body–and her brood, which includes Ming, Aoki, Kenzo and little Wolfe.
