Update: Now Perez Hilton has added more fire to the "Michelle Obama pregnant" rumors and searches.
But the more time passes, the more I don't know if she is or not.
If it's true, it will be quite the blessed event!
Just imagine...a new baby in the White House. Can you say Barack Obama, Jr.? Or would that be the third?
And once again the "Michelle Obama pregnant" searches ensue.
Must be that dress Michelle Obama wore Election Night that's causing people to once again Google: Michelle Obama pregnant?
Yeah she is -- pregnant with possibilities!
All joking aside, I don't think Michelle Obama is literally preggers with a baby. I think she just prefers to wear her dresses a little bigger than her thin frame.
She still looks fabulous to me!
Congatulations Barack and Michelle Obama on your win for the White House and God Speed!
AUGUST 25, 2008 UPDATE ON MICHELLE OBAMA PREGNANT RUMORS:
Rush Limbaugh has renewed interest in whether or not Michelle Obama is pregnant or not. Michelle Obama does not necessarily look pregnant to me. In fact, I just saw a pic of Michelle Obama at the DNC on stage getting ready for tonight and marveled at how thin and great she looks in black pants.
But is Michelle Obama pregnant? I don't know.
If Michelle Obama makes an announcement about being pregnant tonight, we'll see it when we
Newsweek writer Raina Kelly is pregnant -- and people are confusing her voice with Michelle Obama's voice
Update: Okay, now I understand why people are searching for "Michelle Obama pregnant" thanks to a reader who left a comment below.
I just opened the Newsweek article titled "A Real Wife, in a Real Marriage" by Raina Kelley -- which even I, a freelance writer, got a bit confused over when I read the first sentence: "In my junior year of high school..."
Oh -- I had to tell myself, this is Raina Kelley speaking, not Michelle Obama.
So at the end of the piece, Raina Kelley not Michelle Obama writes:
"I'm pregnant with a biracial boy due in June."
So people are confusing the author's voice verses her subject's voice.
I've seen this happen before.
Thanks, readers, for letting me know where all these "Michelle Obama pregnant" searches are coming from.
I hope this clears up the confusion. And congratulations, Raina Kelley -- both on your great Newsweek essay, but also on your coming blessed baby boy!
Original article by Paula Mooney:
Why are people searching for "Michelle Obama pregnant?"
This morning I saw searches for "Michelle Obama pregnant" that landed people on my previous post about Barack and Michelle Obama, not about any pregnancy rumors...
Where did the Michelle Obama pregnant rumors come from?
I don't see anything in Google News stating that Michelle Obama is pregnant as of this writing.
Nor do I see any "Michelle Obama Pregnant!" pieces on black websites.
So I wonder why I noticed this uptick in "Michelle Obama pregnant" searches today?
Did someone say something on radio or TV about Michelle Obama being pregnant?
I just perused the long piece in Newsweek called "He Calls Her His 'Rock.' The Real Michelle Obama" and didn't see anything about her having another baby.
But admittedly, I've barely read it yet.
I've searched to find out that Michelle Obama's age is 44 right now, so baring any other issues, a new baby would be a possibility and blessing for them.
If anyone has any hard news on this issue, please let me know.
