The baby bump is for real.
Britney Spears told David Letterman Tuesday that she is pregnant with baby No. 2.
“Don’t worry Dave, it’s not yours,” the pop princess quipped.
The revelation ended weeks of speculation in entertainment magazines, which have been regularly publishing pictures of Spears’ apparently expanding waistline.
Spears, 24, and her husband, backup dancer-turned-rapper Kevin Federline, 28, were married in 2004 and have an 8-month-old son, Sean Preston.
Federline also has two children, Kori and Kaleb, with his former girlfriend, Shar Jackson.
Spears rose to fame at 16 with a naughty schoolgirl image and the multiplatinum album “... Baby One More Time.”
Smells like success
Britney Spears was in New York to promote her latest fragrance. The pop star went from Curious to Fantasy, and now she’s In Control.
Those are the names of the pop star’s fragrances with Elizabeth Arden, which says more than 10 million bottles of the three scents have been sold since Curious arrived in September 2004.
The names are not a coincidence, Spears said. “As I get older, the names go with my age.”
“This perfume is for empowered girls who want to take over the world — forget about the men!” she said with a laugh just ahead of a press appearance Monday to celebrate her perfume prowess.
Spears, dressed in an oversized eyelet dress in navy with chunky high-heel Christian Louboutin sandals, told the AP she’s involved in the entire development process of the perfumes.
In Control, she said, is supposed to be “both sweet and sexy.”
Its scent, she added, conjures up happy memories of babies, probably because she was in the midst of testing it when her son, Sean, was born last September.
