Fans who got the first glimpse of the wardrobe superstar singer/actress/dancer, etc., that Jennifer Lopez will be wearing for her three-month concert tour were left with no doubt about the pregnancy rumors surrounding her.
When her husband, Marc Anthony, opened the first-night show at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on Sept. 28, he seemed to be teasing the audience with cryptic hints. "This is such a special evening on so many levels," he told them. "You are the first people to witness this new part of our lives."
But the baby buzz was all but confirmed when Jennifer, famous for performing in tummy-revealing costumes, took to the stage in not one, but five (!) loose-fitting, bump-hiding get-ups. Jenny from the Block, standing out in stark contrast to her dancers in their figure-hugging outfits, first took the stage in a floating, almost caftan-like dress. That was followed by a bulky skirt made of golden strips, with a hefty collection of crucifixes covering her belly for good measure. Even the parachute-like ballgown she wore for the finale duets with Marc left plenty of room for growth before the tour ends in November.
Some in the audience noticed that the usually super-active star left all the jumping and high-kicking to her dancers. Others even thought Jennifer struggled a little as she gingerly bent down to pick up her water bottle.
And is Jen getting just a bit weepy? When a fan handed her roses she tearfully said, "Don’t get me emotional up here, because I won’t stop!" It looked like she might mean it.
As for the second night of their show at the Taj Mahal, after getting out of their limo, Jennifer, wearing a green velour tracksuit, waved to fans from a distance, but didn’t stop to say "hi." One die-hard fan told OK!, "I wasn’t sure until now, but even from so far away you could tell she is pregnant." The fan added, "She’s a little chunkier around her cheeks now, and her butt is definitely bigger than normal!"
