Is there a baby country cutie on the way?
Leann Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian stepped out for a Mother's Day brunch at Taverna Tony in Malibu the other day, and because of the recent pregnancy rumors, our photographers decide to ask the Grammy winner if there was a particular reason she was celebrating the holiday!
Asked if there were "any new additions to the family coming up," the "Spitfire" singer casually said, "Yup!" and flashed us a shy smile. Did she just confirm she's expecting her first child with her actor hubby?
Although she's still a skinny minnie, we did catch her at LAX airport the other day sporting what appeared to be the beginnings of a baby bump, so it's very possible she just gave X17online the official first word that she's pregnant!
Do you think LeAnn Rimes is pregnant?
LeAnn Rimes, the self-proclaimed "bonus mom" to hubby Eddie Cibrian's two sons, celebrated Mother's Day in Malibu, with some Greek food at one of her favorite restaurants, Taverna Tony's.
The country singer wore a billowy white, eyelet dress that flowed softly over her middle section. On a recent trip, we spotted LeAnn wearing a loose-fitting sweatshirt covering what appeared to be the beginnings of a growing belly underneath.
Now seriously, the girl is slender and beautiful, but given her usual taste for body-conscious clothing, is her new style a bit, uh, maternal? Or is LeAnn just relaxing and putting comfort before style?
She's got such an amazing body that any glimpse of a slight bump puts us on baby watch!
Leann Rimes jetted out of LAX airport this afternoon on her way to visit hubby Eddie Cibrian, and it could have been her sweatshirt material or simply the angle, but we think we see a small baby bump!
Not only that, but the Spitfire singer's recent tweets make her seem a bit broody! "I finally had 'the baby' & she's already 2 1/2 months. LOL Laughing w/my girl friend's baby girl at lunch. #inlove," she captioned a snapshot of herself with an infant. Her wording seems to imply that she knows people are already speculating she's expecting!
Further evidence is the way she attempted to hold her handbag in front of her stomach while photographers snapped away... It looks to us like the classic "purse trick" to hide the beginnings of a pregnancy!
LeAnn Rimes chatted with the Daily Mail about her new album Spitfire, and she also opened up about her personal life, including her weight and her affair with Eddie Cibrian, who was married to Brandi Glanville at the time their romance began.
"It's definitely been a turbulent four years," LeAnn says. "I think the last four years of my life just came out through my music. I don't think I expected the album to be this honest, but I found that the emotions just came pouring out of me. It was liberating and cathartic to write, but it wasn't easy."
In her new song, "Borrowed," the country star sings about being the other woman, and she tells the Mail:
"Obviously, it was a very controversial topic to write about and as hard as it was for me to write the song, I think it painted a true picture of that situation. I wasn't being hard on myself when I wrote it – that line about feeling pathetic was just true – but I wanted to describe a very stark moment in my life. You just feel in complete limbo and I felt guilty too; it wasn't pretty at all. But I made my choices and I'm living with them. I know I'm not the first person to go through it and I won't be the last."
When asked about going to rehab for 30 days last August for "anxiety and stress," LeAnn says:
"I have considered staying off [social media] but I've basically just learned to deal with the criticism. The people who do it hide behind a computer screen and don't even show themselves and it's interesting to have people judge you but have no idea about who you really are and what you're all about. I did stop [tweeting] for a while but then I was like, 'Screw this! I don't want to stop communicating with my real fans.' The block button's a great thing – if you talk crap to me, I'll just block you!"
What about her fluctuating weight? LeAnn continues:
"People said I was [anorexic] but I didn't have a problem with eating as I ate a ton all the time – I could eat my husband under the table! But I was going through a time when I just wasn't sleeping – my mind wouldn't shut off and my heart was breaking. Now I'm secure about my body, although I'm like any other woman and have my moments of self doubt. But it's nice to have a husband who tells you you're beautiful all the time. I'll say to him, 'I've gained a few pounds' and he'll say, 'Good!' It just gives you another level of confidence. But being in this business, I've noticed that image-wise it's definitely worse for a woman."
We already knew LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian were gunning for their own TV show, and now Us Weekly reports that the couple are "shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together ... They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on Curb Your Enthusiasm." We doubt LeAnn could ever be as hilarious as Larry David, but we don't mind staring at Eddie's handsome face, so it could definitely work...
Cibrian and ex-wife Brandi Glanville's two sons, Mason, 9, and Jake, 6, will not star on the show, and a source tells the mag that if "kids end up being on it, they would be played by actors -- not Eddie's children." But watch out Brandi -- "the show will have a crazy ex-wife!"
"They've met with a few networks," adds another insider. "Nothing is finalized yet, but they're seeing where the show could go."
Would YOU watch this?
On Wednesday afternoon LeAnn Rimes was snapped leaving a local eatery with a few takeout orders, and she dressed up in wedges, skinny jeans and a hot pink sweater.
Turns out the country singer was on her way to the recording studio, as she tweeted, "Headed to lay down a track with Crystal Method and @darrellbrown ... Love doing different things!" Hmm, is someone putting a dance mix on their next album? That could be um, interesting.
And speaking of the color pink, about an hour ago LeAnn changed her Twitter profile picture to the new Human Rights Campaign pink and red equality logo to show her support for marriage equality. She may be guilty of adultery, but don't ever accuse her of discriminating against the LGBT community when it comes to love!
Brandi Glanville better watch out!
LeAnn Rimes is in talks to get her own TV show, Us Weekly reports.
"LeAnn has been approached about doing both scripted and nonscripted shows," a source tells the mag.
Although the country singer recently declared "there's no reality in a reality show" during an appearance on Jay Leno, sources have revealed that she's open to the idea and "hearing people out."
As of now, husband Eddie Cibrian is not considering the projects with his wife.
LeLe better sleep with one eye open if she tries to put Eddie's boys on camera! Brandi will give her a beat down!
LeAnn Rimes was ready for a new look, and bangs was the answer!
The 30-year-old country songstress posted the above photo and the following: "Love my Andy Lacompte! I got banged :)- love em! Was time for a fun change."
Eddie Cibrian's wifey, who showed off her sexy curves last week while attending Grammy Foundation Music Preservation Project’s Play It Forward Event, is gearing up for the release of her upcoming album Spitfire.
This gorgeous lady knows how to keep her music AND her look fresh!
