JENNIFER LOPEZ IS PREGNANT!
After trying to have a baby for two years, Jennifer Lopez and her husband, Marc Anthony, have a little one - or two - on the way
Jennifer Lopez recently told British magazine Grazia, "I can't wait to have a baby. I guess it will happen when God wants it." Now In Touch can exclusively reveal that Jennifer's prayers have finally been answered.
After previously visiting her Beverly Hills ob-gyn, fertility specialist Dr. Robert Katz, she had an ultrasound performed in a New York office on September 12. "The test calculated that she was about 12 weeks pregnant," an insider tells In Touch. "She's due in the spring."
That's wonderful news for Jennifer, 38, and her husband, singer Marc Anthony, because for the past two years, they had been trying just about everything to get pregnant, the insider adds. Finally, in July, she was successful with in vitro fertilization - so successful, in fact, that there's a possibility she's having twins. "The way the fetus is lying made it difficult for the doctor to tell if there was more than one baby in there," says the insider.
Whether she has one baby or two, "becoming a mother is Jennifer's dream," a friend says. "She's over the moon." Marc is also beaming. "He has a twinkle in his eye," a close friend tells In Touch. "He can't wait for her to have their baby."
Although Jennifer is keeping mum about her pregnancy and she and Marc are going to be on a 14-city tour together until November 3, there have been obvious signs that she has a baby on the way. On September 11, Jennifer appeared at the New York Fashion Week launch of her new clothing line, Justsweet, where she was trying to hide a noticeable bump under a baggy green dress. "She was glowing," a witness says.
That same week, back in LA, Jennifer and Marc, 39 - who has three children from previous relationships - threw a dinner party for 10 guests, including David and Victoria Beckham. "She looked much rounder,"
says an insider. "She didn't drink all night and she didn't touch the raw tuna."
Jennifer is being extra cautious, but now that she's into her second trimester, she can rest a little easier. "With in vitro, the first few weeks are tenuous - then the risk is no higher than with any other pregnancy," says Dr. Dave David, a gynecologist from Norfolk, Mass., who has not treated J. Lo.
According to the insider, Jennifer has miscarried before, so she's waiting until she's well into her pregnancy before she makes an announcement. She has another ultrasound scheduled for September 21 and plans on spilling the beans soon.
An insider says that if everything is okay, "Jennifer wants to share this with the world because she's so in love."
