It sure looks like some of the complaints that celebrities have against tabloids are true. One celebrity who might support this statement is British actress Gwendoline Christie who has achieved global recognition for her portrayal of Brienne of Tarth in the HBO fantasy-drama series Game of Thrones. Recently British tabloids went berserk reporting that Gwendoline Christie was pregnant and this created a flutter in the entertainment industry and among her fans. Now people are asking questions like “Is Gwendoline Christie pregnant?” and obviously “Who is Gwendoline Christie’s baby daddy?” We are here to tell you all we know about this juicy gossip that has fans and admirers thirsty for news.
The Bulge in Question!
This rumor about Christie being pregnant started after the actress was spotted with what looked like a stomach bulge on January 18, 2020, in London, England. She was with her long-time boyfriend and was enjoying a romantic dinner date near her house. According to sources Gwendoline Christie’s boyfriend is fashion designer Giles Deacon with whom she has been in a romantic relationship since early 2013. So is Deacon the father of the rumored to-be-born child? Before we come to that there is a more fundamental question. Is Christie pregnant in the first place?
Claims of a Supposed Eyewitness
According to a source quoted by the tabloids “she twice made toasts…by drinking water instead of wine.” The source said that it is unusual for anyone to toast without a full glass of wine and that’s exactly what Christie was doing. The logic is that pregnant women are not supposed to drink alcohol so as Christie was avoiding alcohol it must be because she is pregnant. Beat that!
The Million Dollar Question
What does the actress herself or her camp have to say about this alleged pregnancy? Christie hasn’t said a word so far and her representative told journalists “I do not comment on her personal life.” This is neither confirmation nor denial so the million dollar question of whether Christie is really pregnant or not still remains unanswered. Those sure haven’t stopped the rumors from spreading and have made their way onto bulletin boards and other social media sites in the past 48 hours.
Fear the Tabloids!
These rumors about her alleged pregnancy come on top of rumors about her engagement that spread like wildfire just a week back. The rumor was that Christie has got engaged to her long-time boyfriend Giles Deacon and he was now her fiancé. Is it a wonder that people scream murder when they see the tabloid press making their way towards them armed with microphones and high-resolution cameras?
Christie’s Career Takes off
Christie had a low profile career initially working in films like The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, The Zero Theorem and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 2, before she was selected by Hollywood heavyweight J.J.Abrams to play the role of Captain Phasma in the most success sci-fi series of all time, Star Wars. She has appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi and these roles have made her famous all over the world wherever Hollywood films are seen.
What’s Under the Dress?
Christie has been getting a lot of press lately no matter what she does. Like when she arrived for the 2020 SAG Awards in a voluminous black gown which led people to unkindly speculate that she was hiding something under it. People joked that the hidden object could be a sword, the Iron Throne, Horns of mead, Arya Stark or her Captain Phasma costume from Star Wars. Or maybe a baby! That’s when the rumors of her being pregnant started and at last count is still going strong.
Baby or Not!
Right now nobody knows for sure if Christie is pregnant or not except Christie herself. However, her lips are sealed so nobody knows the truth about her supposed pregnancy. If she is really pregnant trust the tabloids that they will get a picture of her tummy sooner or later and the unvarnished truth will be all over the news. Till then keep wondering: Is she or isn’t she? Happy guessing!
