Something is growing inside, but we don't talk about it, do we?

The possible pregnancy of Christina Aguilera has been exercising gossip sites for a few weeks now, with no official word - not even so much as a coalman saying he'd been asked to deliver a couple of extra sacks and to make them "good and tasty."

In fact, we're not even sure if we can take the statement from Xtina's pop as a confirmation - he and his daughter don't get on and so he's probably relying on the same E! blogs as the rest of the world:

[He] told American magazine Life & Style: "I'm so excited. I want Christina to achieve all her goals. I wish her all the happiness in the world."

We're not entirely comfortable with the idea that creating a life should count as a "goal", like finally cleaning out the back of the fridge or completing the chapter where Captain Jack and the Doctor muck about with the machine re-writing their DNA with sexy results. ("I told you it'd be too heavy to lift" would be in there somewhere.)

Sky News have also found "a source" - we think this "we read in another magazine" that's explained Christina's decision to press ahead:
A source is reported to have added fuel to the speculation fire by saying: "She's thrilled. She's feeling wonderful and taking good care of herself.

"Christina's seen women with great careers, like Gwen Stefani, also raise great kids, and she feels as if she can follow their example."

Yes, Gwen Stefani has done a great job of raising Kingston - one of the few celebrity children to not constantly be popping up in TMZ embarrassing their parents. Mind you, being fourteen months old does mean some of the more extreme decisions required when raising a child haven't exactly exercised Stefani yet.
