Michelle Obama pregnant rumors confuse Newsweek writer Raina Kelley's pregnancy with Obama's wife...


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.


Michelle Obama in her Own Words: The Views and Values of America's First Lady




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?



Michelle Obama Pregnant?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!










Michelle Obama pregnant? Is Michelle Obama pregnant? Michelle Obama expecting?New baby?

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

watch the DNC Democratic National Convention streaming live online

from Denver...




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.

there are several articles in that issue of newsweek. in the article titled a real wife, in a real marriage, the last paragraph states, "I'm pregnant with a biracial boy due in june....." so either she is really pregnant or it is an inside joke.

leo said...

rumors starts when her husband decided to run for the presidency. that`s it

leo said...

the reason is that her husband runs for the presidency

tv brackets said...

Of course today they are trying to make Obama out as a Muslim because of a photo. Why do the rumors need to fly about irrelavent things to the election. We need to pick our next leader based on the issues!

In pictures from the picnic outing in Montana, Michelle looks....pregnant. It may be the style of dress or whatever but it definitely has a maternity look to it. I think that is the reason for the many searches.

Anonymous said...

I just saw a video clip of Michelle Obama and I can see why people think she's pregnant. It's because she stands with her legs wide open and I think she was wearing a maternity dress as well.

Portia said...

I thought Michelle Obama looked preggers weeks ago when she joined her husband on the stage after he wrapped up the final primaries. I saw her again today on TV and she has what certainly looks like a baby bump. But I have to wonder why no one has headlined it, since it would be BIG news if she were (remember the halcyon days of Jack & Jacquie in the early Kennedy WH)? I guess we'll know sooner or later.

Michelle looks pregnant, with a big belly and maternity dress.

Kids Bible Crafts said...

She may look pregnant but I think they are just doing it to draw publicity. Time will tell!

disabled income said...

Thats pretty funny.I think I would have made the same mistake not realizing it was the author speaking and thinking Mrs. Obama was.
Thanks for the great site here !!
I luv it

Top Movie Reviews said...

i dont really see the big problem if she is pregnant. however i just see this as a rumour.

David Leonhardt said...

I guess the real question is why would anybody, other than their friends and family, care if they are pregnant. Is it really anybody's business?

tanicos said...

rumors rumors ..don't take that for granted..and if she is pregnant good for her

This comment is more about that beautiful picture of Obama's family, rather than about the rumors. It's a fantastic picture that hardly looks staged. They come across as a very loving family. Whether the rumors are true or not, I wish them the best.

John said...

Well, we know that the right wing have been looking for a way to fault the Obama, so it is not surprising that their facts have never been right.

Ajith Edassery said...

Is this the new hot search keyword phrase ('Michelle Obama Pregnant')? If so we could all optimize our sites to get some hits - may be unrelated to pregnancy and labor :)

Cheers,
Ajith

Bouncer said...

oh boy you just now told me about the latest keyword which is being searched these days by major chunk of Google users..time to update my site lol

Ken said...

There used to be a time that Presidential elections were more respectful. Granted, it seems like many years ago. I just can't believe all the mud slinging and gossip these days. It's no wonder why people don't vote.

An American in France said...

It's kind of weird how many people care about whether or not someone's pregnant. I mean, we see these tabloid mags with "is she sporting a baby bump?" I mean, who honestly cares about that stuff?

Sample Resume said...

I think people more curious about that beautiful picture of Obama's family, rather than about the rumors.

Jei said...

hey paula great blogging ^_^ i just started on my own and i was wondering if you could give me some helpful tips and hints to help me become a successful blogger like you thanks!!^_^

Clairvoyant said...

It is true that in the pictures from the picnic Michell looks pregnant. But I am inclined to think that it is due to the style of dress.

sskumar said...

rumors rumors... I think is it really someone's business?

Mr Article said...

Here a rumor, there a rumor, everywhere a rumor rumor. Always damn rumors but you know what, good for her if she is pregnant.

keylogger said...

Really I don't believe in these rumors, anyway thanks for sharing !!

Google Chrome Forums said...

Pregnant or not, I don't think it affects Barack's campaign.

Bookmakers said...

It may be the style of dress or whatever but it definitely has a maternity look to it. I think that is the reason for the many searches.

Eliot said...

it is a problem that she is pregnant? i wonder whether it influences the election...

xbox 360 sale said...

I am surprised it wasn't shown on the national enquirer, but either way, if she is then it won't affect Mr. Obama's campaign.

Karoline Ace said...

I really don't see a reason why is that question is so important. That is Obama's private life, and i don't see how could that have any distraction to Barack's politics.

personal loans said...

I think its all humor after all her husband is standing for presidency elections. Never mind the big personalities are all used to about such things.

Andrea said...

although i think that this is in no way relevant to the elections; i think that it's just to get people to talk about them; and apparently people are, but i thought she has small bump too, from one of the clips i saw on the news... but that's that, nothing significant really...

Tracy - hair tools said...

I do not think that Michelle is pregnant. This rumor has been flying for months and she would be getting too big to hide it at this point if this was the case. I think she is like me and is not comfortable in wearing really tight showy clothes.

Musical instrument said...

Of advance today they are aggravating to accomplish Obama out as a Muslim because of a photo. Why do the rumors charge to fly about irrelavent things to the election. We charge to aces our next baton based on the issues!

Tony said...

this is fantastic rumor i think :)

Jocuri de gatit said...

what is the importance ? is pregnant ok, is not pregnant is ok ...

michelle obama said...

hahaha soooo untrue, the media looves these types of rumors. michelle has been looking so beautiful and composed recently on tv.... yay! i think she is sooooo cool. Good luck obamas!

videos gratis said...

Beautiful family, I am happy for his victory, am not interested in rumors, I am interested in his future government

Sarah said...

i dont really see the big problem if she is pregnant. however i just see this as a rumour.

Ruri said...

I don't see her as pregnant. I just wondering why many people like to create rumors.

SeaAndSun said...

Last night as I was driving home the radio said congratulations mrs obama on being pregnant! I couldn't believe how presumptuous that was, definetly jumping the gun... But now that I see these rumors have been going around for months I know they must be just rumors

Anonymous said...

If she is pregs...thats no one biz but hers and barack. i am so tired of people starting rumors with no fact just speculations. everyone need something to talk about because she is the first lady...period. so find something else to do with your time perez hilton and anyone else who falls in line with rumors...get a life.

Jones said...

Preggers at 44? Yikes. Nah, I think they are done makin' babies. The press has enough to report on as it is.

Lizz said...

I do think that it's just rumors, but still think she's not so young for that

kaykay61596 said...

Michelle is obviously NOT pregnant.
She is 44 years old...what 44 year old likes to get it on (other than my grandmother...lol)
A baby would be a serious blessing. especially if its a boy

Laura said...

I think that Michelle Obama is not pregnant, but that the increased number of kilograms. If she is pregnant it is a beautiful news, in each case.

Medela said...

So what if she is pregnant. They are a married couple like everyone else. People need to stop hating and just accept that change is here and that He will be here for 8 yrs. They are human beings, their personal life shouldn't change because of us. He is taking care of business as a while. Let the 1st Black Beautiful couple Be..

Tami said...

I did the search because of that white skirt she had on a week or two ago. It had that elastic type waist worn lower than waist level where her tummy was showing...buldge was obvious. IF she is pregnant that would be great for them!!! I'm republican and doubt that any republican would think this opportunistic against them...why, when all life is precious. She almost fell asleep at teddy's funeral! She has two adorable kids..why not another?

mikayla said...
