After the satirical gossip website Weekly World News posted an article with the headline, "TAYLOR SWIFT PREGNANT" earlier this week, rumors went viral that the pop-country songstress is indeed expecting a baby... with none-other-than One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles. Now the celebrity gossip magazine "Famous" is adding fuel to the fire, with a recent cover issue exclaiming, "Taylor Pregnant, Harry Trapped. 'I'm not ready for this' - A dad at 18: His emotional reaction to the baby news... disbelief & shock: Fans Speak out." The tabloid claims that 23-year-old Swift is definitely not an innocent as she appears... are Mstarz fans starting to buy into the ongoing pregnancy rumors?
Mstarz originally reported that the Swift pregnancy rumors were a hoax, considering the report published by Weekly World News was obviously a spoof:
Check out the rather hilarious "Taylor Swift is Pregnant" article recently posted on "Weekly World News." The bogus report insists that Swift's reps heatedly deny the recent pregnancy claims, but that insiders actually spoke to doctors close to Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. Apparently Swift recently went for an OB/GYN checkup and doctors confirm that she is indeed with child, and Styles is the rumored father. "Definitely, preggers," a resident at the hospital told "WWN."
Hold up a second... just check out some of these ridiculous quotes that prove the report is ultimately a joke:
"A source close to the drummer in Taylor Swift's band, said that Taylor wasn't sure if it Conor Kennedy was the baby daddy or if it was One Direction's Harry Styles. There are about two dozen other men (and teens) that could be the father - according to One Direction fans."
"Various members of The Wanted are trying to get Lindsay Lohan pregnant - just so they can keep up with One Direction and Styles."
The tabloid even alters a photo of the Grammy Award winner, making it look as if she's sporting a growing baby bump.
Although after a quick read-through it's pretty obvious that the report is fake, searches for "Taylor Swift pregnant" recently started to trend on the web.
Now "Famous" magazine (not the most reliable source) is pushing the envelope even further by suggesting that Swift has intentionally gotten preggo to trap Styles into marrying her... what?! Oh, and supposedly when Swift broke the news to Styles, he wasn't too thrilled to learn that he'd soon be a daddy. He's just "not ready."
The couple has only been dating for a few weeks, so it's hard to believe that Styles already "knocked up" Swift. Maybe it's true that Swift isn't as innocent as she comes off to be to the public... but she's a young, 23-year-old woman... can fans really blame her for wanting to have a little fun every now and then?
One Directioners and Swifters needn't worry - this story still sounds a little fishy and shouldn't be taken too seriously (unless "Haylor" comes out with an official pregnancy statement). Most Twitter fans aren't falling for the gossip reports quite yet... in fact, many just joke about how Swift "wouldn't know who the father was" anyway:
@6Boys_1Dream: "'Taylor Swift is pregnant' does anyone else hear the entire male population screaming because they might be the father? OMG."
@GomezMiracle: "'TAYLOR SWIFT IS PREGNANT' I highly doubt that. I won't believe it till I see a positive pregnancy test or a baby bump on taylor."
@h0tlikepayne: "As far as I know, Taylor Swift is not pregnant with Harry's baby..... I'm 99.99% sure lol #rumors."
@jessica_purkey: "If Taylor Swift really is pregnant I feel sorry for the doctor who has to figure out who the dad is. #LOL."
@iKissStyles: "'Taylor swift is pregnant. It's Harry's baby.' and I'm Beyonce..."
@KimmyLorton: "If @taylorswift13 was even pregnant, no one would know who daddy was anyways. She has a new bf every 2 weeks."
Despite all the rumors, the budding romance deemed "Haylor" seems to be going strong. Whether that means a baby is actually on the way remains to be debated.
