Catherine Zeta-Jones, “42″, might be pregnant with a “miracle baby”

These are photos of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas entering a birthday party in NYC on January 17th. I saw these photos last week, but I guess I didn’t really look through them, because my only reaction was “meh.” However, the tabloids got out their magnifying glasses and decided that they spied a “bump” hidden within Catherine’s little black Herve Leger, and this week, there are several stories revolving around Catherine’s “miracle pregnancy” at… (cough cough) “42”. Yes, she’s holding at 42! That’s the real story, but here’s one version of the pregnant thing:

After years of trials and tribulations, the tide is finally turning for Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas as the couple prepare to welcome another child!

“Michael is giving Catherine her dream gift – another baby,” an insider tells Star. “He’s adamant about giving her the one thing she is truly desperate for.”

On Jan. 17, Catherine kept what appeared to some observers as her bumped-up belly under wraps. Many onlookers “are buzzing that she is pregnant… she’s absolutely glowing.”

“When things were at their darkest, they could only dream that a miracle like this could happen. Now Michael and Catherine feel as if they have a second lease on life. Michael may be an older man, but he feels like a kid again. And Catherine’s blues have gone away. She feels like she’s walking on sunshine!”

[From Star, print edition]

Et cetera. There’s more stuff about how Michael is totally “ready” for another baby, and if something bad happens with this bump of mystery (or if she isn’t really preggo), they’ll totally consider adopting.

As for these photos – the alleged photo evidence of Catherine’s “bump” – I can see where her stomach is not quite flat in these photos, but I don’t think that means “preggo!!!” If anything, I think she looks thinner than she usually looks. Although… the Enquirer used a different photo from this set, and Zeta’s bump definitely looked more pronounced. Still, I think it’s just a food-and-wine gut, not a baby bump. In any case, I don’t think “42” year old Catherine is interested in having another baby, and sources tell Gossip Cop the stories aren’t true anyway.

    42 or not, her skin looks great in these pictures!

    • lisa says:

      A man his age is dramatically more likely to produce a child with autism, Downs Syndrome, Scizhophrenia, etc and should not be having children.

      The issue here is HIS age, not her’s.

      • ol cranky says:

        oh, it’s her age too. We don’t generate new ova like men generate new sperm and non-disjunction is more common with eggs that aren’t so fresh

        either way, I wouldn’t see how this would be a “miracle baby” if she were pregnant

      • lisa says:

        The “new” sperm produced by older men is still old man sperm and contains many more genetic mutations than a younger man’s.

      • horizonte says:

        according to my mom’s gyno, if the combined age of the parents is more than 80, all these risks are more pronounced, regardless of the age of the mother. she could be very young, but an older partner will still increase the risks.

  2. atlantapug says:

    NOT pregnant.

    Geesh, these normal sized women can’t eat a damn thing without being “pregnant”. I agree that she actually looks thinner than normal.

    Moral of story, unless you are a stick figure praying mantis (Posh) you must be fat/pregnant.

    • Capella says:

      It’s not a food and wine bump, it’s a Hervé Leger dress bump: Those banded dresses make any b*tch look like she has a tummy and hips!

      But gotta wonder… Is it really a good idea for Peepaw to have yet another child at his age? And how about her mental state; Why do people think that having a child would, not only keep a couple together, but cure all illnesses as well? Just MHO here, not trying to start a fight on the “miracles of pregnancies”:)

      • bluhare says:

        Hasn’t he had chemo? Wouldn’t that mess up his sperm?

      • Capella says:

        @bluhare – You despicable beast! Speaking of Peepaw’s sperm! I need a bath. yuck;)

        How do you people insert all those smiley and grimacing faces in here? Any tool i should know of?.. No, not the Ashton Kutcher kind. But the keyboard command kind;)

      • ol cranky says:

        @bluhare – the chemo (or radiation) would have messed up the sperm he made while he was undergoing treatment but not the stuff being created now. guys get rid of their sperm on a routine basis and continue replenishing if you catch my drift.

      • Capella says:

        Holy cow! Thank you guys! Will definitely have to save those crazy faces up.

        As for the sperm… Isn’t he like sparkles, and is able to keep them intact in his crypt for like centuries?

      • Mairead says:

        @ Capella, no probs.

        And make sure to use my favourite emoticon – the alarmed face 8O

        (which is 8 and capital o)

      • Capella says:

        Oh that face would so apply to extreme religious bullshit!

        Jesus said to go attend churches and sermons through Katy Perry’s Facebook. 8O

  3. says:

    Yeah, I’m not really seeing a baby pump as much as I woman who is did not Spans the hell out of her midsection.

  4. The Other Katherine says:

    Only in Hollywood could that stomach be interpreted as a sign of pregnancy. Bizarre.

  5. lucy2 says:

    That’s ridiculous. God forbid an actress eat dinner and exhale.

  6. lin234 says:

    I’m kind of rooting for them and this story to be true simply because who would have thought they would last this long? I remember the Mask of Zorro when she was just the hottest “It” girl for a while.

  7. Kerfuffles says:

    Some attorney friends of mine happened to share an elevator with her last year in a courthouse in New Orleans when she was there shooting a movie. They said she had the tiniest waist they had ever seen on a woman.

    Of course, that was last year, so pretty much irrelevant to whether she’s pregnant now. Their comments kind of surprised though because I always thought of CZJ as more voluptuous than tiny (well, voluptuous by Hollywood standards), but according to my friends she was anything but.

    ANYWAY…if they both really want another baby, I hope this is true. They seem like a couple that is truly committed to eachother.

  8. Adrien says:

    Oh, c’mon! She’s a believable 42. She’s probably 45, but who cares, she’s hot.

    • Rachel says:

      She’s beautiful regardless of her age. However, she’s been 42 for about 10 years now. Seriously. I’ll be the first to admit that I have a tendency to lose track of time, but come on…

      • Malificent says:

        I know that she may have professional reasons for lying about her age, given an industry and general culture that is very ageist. However, I’ve never understood where lying does much good. For myself, I’d much rather have people commenting that I’m a well-preserved 44 than a haggard-looking 34….

    • Kate says:

      She was first famous in the Uk because she was in a TV show between 1991 and 1993, and she was pretty young then. If she’s 42 now she would have been 22 when the show began by her own currently given age, and tbh I think that’s about right. She was definitely early 20s. It still makes my jaw drop to remember the age gap between her and Michael Douglas, but I guess they do seem really happy together, so what do I know.

      • lu says:

        Stop talking such sense Kate! Facts and calculations don’t matter to these people. They’ve been told this over and over again, but still will not accept it.

        I think the problem is she seems older than she is, she’s old fashioned and married to an ancient.

  9. Shelley says:

    I never would have recognized her from these photos – that is Plasto-face in the extreme. What a shame, and starving-scrawny as well.

  10. Manda says:

    Love her red shoes. She looks pretty dang slim to me, and if she has a little belly….well she’s in her 40s and she’s had 2 kids…

  11. Jilly Bean says:

    she has been 42 for 10 years now….

    • SamiHami says:

      ***rolling my eyes***

      Once again, as comes up every time she is mentioned on these boards, CZJ was a child star. Her age is incredibly easy to document. No, she has not been 42 for ten years. Yes, she has a mature face, but she is 42. Ten years ago she was 32. In ten years she’ll be 52.

      As a child star it is impossible for her to lie about her age. She grew up in front of the camera.

      • smith says:

        You can ***roll your eyes*** right back because she was 36 when I was 36.

        I’ve since gone on to become 45 and now she’s “42″ (in quotes).

        It’s fancy Hollywood math – you take your age in dog years, divide by Pi and round way the heck down. Amen.

      • Petunia says:

        Ha ha, smith, I’m with you on this one. She’s “42″ like I’m “42.” Just not gonna buy her being anything younger than 50, at the youngest. I guess she wants to be “42″ because 50 is the death knell in Hollywood for women. In real life too, for that matter, in terms of being considered sexy and desirable by most men.

      • Mairead says:

        I know Sami. It’s like friggin’ Groundhog Day every single time. Especially when the commenters attribute facts to their faulty memories.

        I used to think she was at least 3-5 years older than advertised as well, but then I used my “mad genealogical skillz” and did a quick search on which proved she is the age she says she is.

        Which Kaiser et al could confirm if they weren’t so bloody cheap :p

        But using my ma

      • carrie says:

        in 1990,she was in a french movie and she was 20 years old(i again have the movie magazine with her first interview) so her age is accurate

      • Sumodo1 says:

        If she’s 42, ok, she’s 42. However, take Michelle Pfeiffer: she was always OLDER than I was, and now, she’s younger than I am. Are Michelle’s pants on fire yet?

      • Kate says:

        I am 45 and she has always been a few years younger than me. She was not 36 when I was 36!

  12. Cate says:

    I went to school with her. She really is 42 and it is easy to check. I don’t get all the scepticism.

    • Tapioca says:

      Well quite – she was 19 in that Larkin thing, back when there would have been absolutely no reason to lie about her age if she’d been 22-25. Plus she’s never tried to dress super-young – if anything, she’s tried to sartorially close the age gap to hubby by dressing like a middle-aged woman when she was 30-something!

    • Gine says:

      Yeah, I don’t think she’s older (or not by much) either. She was acting on British TV was she was really young, so like you said, it’s easy to check.

      I think she gets crap because she actually looks like a mature woman instead of a Hollywood ingenue. But compared to other, younger actresses (Cameron Diaz? Hello?)I think she looks great.

    • jc126 says:

      It started out of that blind item story referenced below, about visiting the White House and having to admit her “real age”.
      I agree she’s always dressed much older than her age, but I believe she’s 42.

  13. Sara says:

    She is 42! And 42 is not that unheard of to have a baby. Back in the day when people had large families 42 was a common age to have your last child!

    • Marjalane says:

      She might be 42, (but I doubt it) but her husband is 110, and has a shaky health history! I think it’s kind of sad to have a baby under those conditions- but it’s probably just a wine bump anyway.

    • Funnylilou says:

      She is NOT 42 she is 10 years older it was actually documented and proven: the shame came from the fact that it was from a v ery official source…an event at the White House where attendants had to provide their ID in order to be registered and this is when the world was shocked to discover she is actually 10 years older than her stage age!!!go search the internet you’ll see!

      It was a story à la “Estella Warren” who actually is 40!

      even if I didn’t knew that there is no way this women is younger that Salma hayek, Halle Berry, all the desperate housewives cast (who are all pushing 50!), Julia Roberts,Jennifer Anniston, Sandra Bullock and the list goes on and on and its not the way she dresses, Julia Roberts has a more matronly style and looks way younger!!

      it’s ridiculous by now she should stop holding to this stupid lie, I think it’s even more pathetic than behaving à la “demi moore”!

      • Rose says:

        Nonsense, I remember her perfectly well from the Darling Bugs of May. She’s 42.

      • Funnylilou says:

        @rose: yeah if you say so…nothing can destroy a big fat lie like the White House Security service… but then if you say otherwise, maybe they can reconsider what is actually true…

        It was proven and a great shame!!!
        if you don’t want believe it , it’s your choice, but it will not change realty

      • Julie says:

        ….agree with Funnylilou that is. No way can anyone convince me she’s not close to 50. If she wanted to quash the rumors, she’d do like Obama and produce her birth certificate.

      • Cate says:

        Are you kidding me – she is 42 lol. I really don’t know where all these theories come from. Is it because she is a 42 year old woman who heaven forbid actually looks 42?

        Plus you can check the UK birth records on sites like Ancestry. She is there – born in 1969.

      • L says:

        From what other posters have said, that blind item came out twice (under two different presidents) and is pretty much a urban legend.

      • Mairead says:

        But the problem is that the blind item “proof” tends to change details, such as the name of the President every time it’s trotted out.

        Now, seeing as you and some of your comrades here are highly astute persons only accepting of the most secure bona fides, such as unproven blind items issued by anonymous bloggers, you may be interested in this highly-desirable and completely legitimate bridge-buying deal? :twisted:

      • lu says:

        The White House must really keep up with gossip, if they felt the need to release her “real” age. That’s ridiculous!

    • Zoe says:

      Had a friend (married at 40) and she had her children when she was 42/44. Her husband was 25. Her doctor did tell her its beneficial for a woman to partner with a young man, if she plans on becoming pregnant in her 40′s. So the man’s age also is a factor.

  14. O'Connell says:

    Didn’t Michael Douglas have heavy duty chemo? I mean he was stage 4, right? Probably did maintenance afterward (another form of chemo, just less). Maintenance for stage 4 is typically several months. I don’t know if your sperm is “normal” afterward, but I can’t imagine wanting to take that risk.

    • Petunia says:

      This is a very good point but they could still have a baby using someone else’s sperm.

    • Mairead says:

      A donor is a good suggestion, but perhaps they banked some of his sperm before treatment and have used IVF – if she’s pregnant of course.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I think I read somewhere that they actually did bank some of his sperm prior to the cancer treatments. Not absolutely sure, but kinda sure!

        (And do those emoticon stuffs work on a regular keyboard as well?)

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Yep, just tried it. :)

      • Amanda says:

        That would make sense if they did in fact want more kids.

  15. Tiffany says:

    Is it odd that I forgot that they were married. If there is not a reason for another child, it has been corfimed in the last couple years with these two. Health wise they are both still recouperating and a baby that does not know any different should not be around that. Wish them both well.

  16. L says:

    Guys-she’s 42. She hasn’t been saying she’s 42 for decades. AND like others have said, she’s been around English tv for a long time (since her late teens) so it’s a really easy thing to check.

    I don’t get the rumors.

    • badrockandroll says:

      All the rumours seem to be based on a blind item from years ago about a visit that she and Douglas allegedly made to the White House. I have seen two versions, with different Presidents named, which imo, makes the blind item even stupider than most blind items.

      When CZJ is not red-carpetting, her style is very frumpy and dowdy, but for most special events she usually looks amazing. Not a fan of the hair, but I would kill for those shoes & I really like the lipstick colour.

    • sauvage says:

      As I posted a little further down, I, too, know that 42 is her actual age. Shows how persistent some rumours can follow you around.

  17. Ann says:

    I don’t get how women can have kids with old men. I’d be too worried about the adverse effects the father’s age has on the health of the baby. I think one of their kids already has some “issues”.

    • bluhare says:

      Wow. That’s pretty mean.

    • Karen says:

      Wow – that IS mean. Her kids are perfectly fine. How do I know this? My kids and hers went to school together at Warwick Academy in Bermuda. They were normal, healthy, absolutely well-adjusted children, and the Douglas’s are terrific, down-to-earth parents. Catherine is lovely in person and yes,… she’s 42.

  18. Roma says:

    I’m more surprised she’s taken her extensions out.

  19. bea says:

    I’m not crazy about the color of her shoes with the color of her handbag.

  20. Anastasia says:

    Does she want to give the photographer her handbag?

  21. Raised Brow says:

    She’s 42, folks. I remember when she first came on the scene a couple decades ago, and we were the same age.
    42, and holding!!!

  22. fabgrrl says:

    That is not a “bump”. Sheesh! That is a forgotten pair of Spanx. Or maybe CZJ realizes that gaining a little bit of weight as she ages will make her look younger. I always thought of her as a sexy, curvy woman (by Hollywood standards anyway) but then she got all bony a few years ago. Maybe she is done with that scrawny look.

    That part about Michael Douglas “giving” her her dream gift p*sses me off. Oh! Thank you for the gift of sperm! I do so enjoy that my body can be the incubator for YOUR child. Grr! Maybe I just need more coffee this morning.

    • Asli says:

      Agreed! WTF? “Dream gift”?! This isn’t the 1920′s, women don’t walk around pregnant and barefoot only to worship the gift of men and push out babies! Didn’t Lady Godiva teach us anything? Get a clue, Star!

      • Rio says:

        While Lady Godiva existed, the riding around naked story is actually just a myth– she basically owned the village where it was said to take place so if anyone was unfairly raising taxes, it was her!

  23. Gossip PHD says:

    Cant imagine she is pregnant if she is taking Bipolar medication. Remember that folks?

    • hstl1 says:

      She could certainly get pregnant under her doctor’s supervision. It is a manageable disease just the same as if she had diabetes or hypertension. Let’s drop the stereotype!

  24. Paloma says:

    Don’t believe it. Also, Aniston is not pregnant. She did that silly little whatever you call it with Chelsea Handler and her crew the other day.

  25. Justaposter says:

    She does look great!

    However, I am older than her ‘listed age’ and I know she is older than me!

    If she keeps getting younger, I guess I can to! LOL

    • the original bellaluna says:

      We here at CB call that the “Chelsea Handler Aging System.” Every time Chelsea claims she is 36 (or whatever ridiculous age she’s claiming to be) we all deduct a year from our own age. (I think I’m around 20 now!)

  26. Jen34 says:

    I don’t care how old she is or if she’s pregnant. She is beautiful.

  27. ladybert62 says:

    If she is pregnant (which I doubt), this is really a bad idea. Her hubby is healthy (somewhat) now but he is not long for this world and she is going to be raising a child withouth the father -

    I dont understand this thinking at all.
    Get a pet – much easier to deal with.

  28. Suze says:

    She could be 42 – I would believe that. Maybe yes, maybe no – but I don’t think it’s completely out of realizty.

    What I don’t believe is that she’s pregnant. She’s on meds for her bipolar disorder and her husband was recently gravely ill – a baby is about the last thing they need.

    • LEX says:

      #1 it’s none of your business.
      #2 bipolar disorder isn’t like having an infection — you have it forever. it’s no different than having graves’ disease or diabetes.

  29. The Truth Fairy says:

    IF you are pregnant and you DON’T want people to know yet, maybe don’t wear a super tight Hervé Leger bandage dress …

  30. sauvage says:

    I remember it perfectly well when in 1998 ‘The Mask of Zorro’ came out. Everywhere it said that Catherine Zeta-Jones was 28 years old, 10 years older than me at the time. So, if anything, she turned 29 during promoting the film. Now it’s 2012, I’m 31, she’s 42. Adds up pretty damn fine for me.

    Who started that rumour concerning her age?

    • LAK says:

      i think the rumours started because she always looked and dressed like a middle aged woman. She’s never looked or carried herself like an Ingenue. I remember when she was on TV doing larkin, thinking that she was a very mature looking teenager.

      Some people are like that. Case in point, Arnie Hammer who i have always thought looked late 20s/early thirties Wall street type.

      or conversely Lily Collins who looks like a 12-14year old child but is actually early twenties.

      • sauvage says:

        Interesting, I never thought of her style as ‘middle-aged’ (after she got known in the US, I can’t vouch for her in the earlier days of her carreer as she only jumped onto my radar in 1998). I always thought of her style as classy. There’s just nothing trashy about her dressing ways – maybe we have simply gotten too used to that over the years?
        Anyway, I’ve loved her ever since “High Fidelity”. Back then she was a huge star and she chose to do a tiny supporting part in a really cool film.

      • LAK says:

        @sauvage – middle aged is probably me using hyperbole. What i meant is that inspite of her real age, she always carried herself and dressed like she was 5 or more years older. Like a ‘woman’ even though she was still a teenager/early twenties with no life experiences.

        if take 1998 as the comparable example for stars of similar vintage, next to Aniston, Winona, JLO, even Kidman before the surgery began in earnest, she looked about 5+ years older than them.

        i think she’s going to be a beautiful old lady because finally she is the age she has always looked.

        And you are so right that all these stars have completely distorted our perception of natural bodies and aging

  31. LeeLoo says:

    Didn’t she get diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder last year? The medication for that probably caused weight gain. Why the question of age? I totally bet she is 42.

  32. JudyK says:

    She’s much closer to 50 than 40–have no respect for women/actresses who lie about their real age(s). She was outed years ago for lying about her age.

    • Funnylilou says:

      Thank you! Than you you for remembering!

      • Rose says:

        I’ve no respect for people who believe nonsense. She’s 42.

      • Funnylilou says:

        @Bluhare: Yes it certainly was! For sure… by her wrinkly and saggy knees and old lady hands!!Common!! she is in Madonna territory regarding her hands!! and those can’t lie about age!

    • Funnylilou says:

      @Rose: are you from her PR Team or what? seriously!
      You keep repeating she is 42 she is 42, whithout actually trying to prove your fact, even when we say that se was shamefully OUTED (means by the medias if it was not that much clear)

      Oh and by the by, I absolutely don’t care for the respect from a random person on the internet!!! and who does???

      • bluhare says:

        Your claim has been debunked already.

      • Cate says:

        From the England/Wales Birth Index.

        Name: Catherine Zeta Jones
        Mother’s Maiden Surname: Fair
        Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1969
        Registration district: Swansea
        Inferred County: Glamorganshire
        Volume Number: 8b
        Page Number: 4595 (click to see others on page)

        Proof enough for you?

      • Funnylilou says:

        @Cate: NO!
        Proof will be RELEASING her birth certificate not typing some random supposed infomations on a gossip board!!

        other “proofs”: her neck, knees and hands!!not some forty-something body parts and those can’t lie!!
        Even Demi Moore and in her actual gaunt state looks way younger!!

      • Cate says:

        LOL – it’s not random. If you care to check on the index of all births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales is readily available.

        The woman is 42, why she should have to publish her birth certificate to prove it?

        It is easily checked using other reputable sources which I would prefer to believe rather than some shady blind item which has been around the block twice already.

        Plus using Demi Moore isn’t the best example. Is there a part of her including allegedly her knees that hasn’t had some kind of surgery or treatment. Hard as this is to believe, perhaps CZJ has had minimal work done and is aging at a normal rate ;P Could she perhaps …. shock/horror look like an average 42 year old woman!

        Amen to the scary knees and hands factor!

    • Funnylilou says:

      Sure! her face face sreams no fillers and botox! LOL!!big LOL!! she looks as tweaked as the next actress!
      and no this is not what normal 42 looks like in real life, this is actually insulting for normal women, my mom is 47 and looks like a child compared to CZJ, way freshier and younger and without having the easy pampered life I assume CZJ is having!

      • Louise says:

        Easy life? Dude, she might be rich, but her husband had cancer and she’s got bipolar disorder. Get a clue.

        Honestly, the amount of people in denial about her age is insane. She’s 42. She’s mature-looking, but clearly 42. I know 42-year-old women who look like that – mature but not old. Comparing her to other celebs like Demi Moore who are jacked up is stupid. She looks gorgeous – a bit too thin though.

        You can see her age on That’s not a gossip site or a blind item, it’s a factual site that tracks all births and deaths in the UK. Honestly, even if she did release her birth certificate you’d all scream it was a fake. Get over it.

    • A~ says:

      I’d love for the people insisting that they “know” her age is not 42 to provide a link (or two) to any sites that offer actual proof. Hint: A blind item is not proof.

  33. Darlene says:

    Did anyone see the blind item about the celebrity couple who had a special needs child they kept under wraps b/c they wanted to keep it a secret? The guess was it was the Zeta-Jones/Douglas second-born. Can anyone confirm having seen a photo or anything of their second child?

    • Hmm says:

      I’ve seen a couple pics of her before. Her name is Carys and she’s absolutely beautiful. I think shes 9 or 10 yrs old now. Looks just like her daddy in my opinion and Dylan is Catherine to a T. As far as Carys having any kind of special needs I haven’t heard Catherine or Michael say anything about it.

      • jc126 says:

        I think supposedly Michael D. alluded to their son needing to be schooled in NYC because the schools in Bermuda weren’t enough for his needs. I don’t know anything about the schools in Bermuda, but it could be something like dyslexia, perhaps. Not that I think having dyslexia makes you “special needs”, but it is something to be dealt with.

      • bluhare says:

        Agree with jct126. I read the article where Michael said they moved from Bermuda for their son’s schooling and implied he has either learning or another disorder.

    • mln76 says:

      My guess on that blind was Nicole’s new baby.

  34. SolitaryAngel says:

    That hairstyle is doing her NO favors. Yikes

  35. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I remember when panty hose were the norm.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      Panty hose suck! Try living in a very hot climate and see if you want to wrestle those suckers on and off and sit in your own sweat all ay. Not the 50′s anymore. we don’t have to get our leg coverings out of an egg.

  36. atticfaerie says:

    edit: “if” she is pregnant, congrats. If not, perhaps as someone above said she forgot her spanx, or GASP had the guts to eat real food before going out.

    Regardless of her age, be it 42 or 48ish (which I doubt, I think 42 is accurate) it is possible to get pregnant at that age and carry to term without complications, as I have witnessed with several of my friends (43,44,47) have healthy full-term pregnancies at approx the same age.

    She may or may not be on bi-polar meds, guess what… THEY ARE NOT BIRTH CONTROL! And only a 1 or 2 of them on the market that are safe for women in general have potential side-effects for pregnant women (my husband has been diagnosed as Bipolar II (same as CZ) for close to 8 yrs now & I am no expert but am familiar with the drugs/side effects out there.

    As for her husband being sick and older to boot, it’s really a non-issue. Plenty of men his age & even older procreate all the time.

    Would any of you nay-sayers prefer to read she had an abortion b/c of these small risks?

    • Suze says:

      I think her husband being “sick and older” is a pretty big issue. Certainly not a “non-issue.”

      But who knows? She could be pregnant. I do think – given her husband’s age, illness, all the medications the two of them have taken lately, her own maternal age – it’s doubtful.

      • atticfaerie says:

        I doubt the pregnancy story is true and believe the pics are the result of any number of reasons: bad camera angle/a full meal/lack of support garments, etc…

        As for Michael being sick and the chemo/cancer meds having an effect, I have two words – Lance Armstrong.

        Regarding his age: it’s not unheard of and plenty of children grow up just fine without a father around regardless of age issues, an unforseen tragedy, or a simply having a jerk for a dad.

        Her Bipolar meds and age are really an issue between her and her doctors. I personally would not put myself in that situation, but unplanned events do happen.

  37. Hmm says:

    Until I hear a public announcement from Catherine’s own mouth I’m not believing anything. If she really is pregnant, then thats wonderful. I think it’d be great to have another little Zeta running around. But if not, then thats fine too. I mean she’s probably just gaining some much needed weight. Don’t get me wrong. She’s a very beautiful woman but she’s def a little too far on the thin side. Just my personal opinion. And as far as believing she’s older than she says. Come on people. Give te poor woman break. We all know she’s 42 yrs old. Even if she does look older. Who cares? She and Michael both went through a lot with him having cancer and her finding out she’s bipolar. That kind of stress and straight up terror ages you and it ages you fast. And I have no doubt it’s probly part of the reason she thinner now than she’s ever been. Come on people. Stop nit pickin. Nobody idolizes Catherine more than me and even I dont read THAT much into it. I may get curious but i dont make assumptions. Just wait for her to go public with it and then you’ll know for sure.

  38. Funnylilou says:

    @rose: yeah if you say so…nothing can destroy a big fat lie like the White House Security service… but then if you say otherwise, maybe they can reconsider what is actually true…
    It was proven and a great shame!!!

    • Rose says:

      You need to reposition your tin-foil hat. The White house story is a myth.

      • Funnylilou says:

        In your PR Bubble tiny universe, it surely is!
        It is NOT a myth, her people denied it, without at any moment releasing her birth certificate…denying versus documenting…she proved us so wrong!! In that case people who are sure of their ground chose without any hesitation the second… guess who chose to just deny…

    • badrockandroll says:

      @Funnylilou: If blind items are proof to you, will you accept a newspaper article as “proof” that there is a Santa Claus Virginia? Because there is one, written by Francis Pharcellus Church in 1897.

      And now there are other blind items that CJZ has a special needs kid tucked away somewhere, that she is losing her hair, and I just Googled and discovered that she washes her hair with cavier! Since I read it all on the internet, it must be true, right?

      • Funnylilou says:

        It wasn’t a blind it was on pagesix and TMZ!!
        Oh and I can perfectly buy all the things you have said because if I have to believe CZJ is 42, then everything is possible even snow in Arizona!

        theree is no way she is the same age that JLO and she is as botoxed as all other actress and she can pass for Julianne Moore’s aunt!!!

      • badrockandroll says:

        because Page Six and TMZ are such bastions of journalistic integrity…

      • Louise says:

        @Funnylilou: Woman, you are nuts. Learn to be more discerning with your sources. Not all blind items are accurate. TMZ is not verified by any means.

        Is it impossible for a woman to look more mature than her age these days? I get mistaken for 18 all the time and I’m 25, does that mean I lie? My sister’s partner is 33 but is balding and looks about 40, but no one demands to see his birth certificate.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        @funnilou, you seem to have an enormous axe to grind and you obviously haven’t been to any of the ski resorts in Flagstaff, Arizona. Would you like to ski in some Arizona snow? Or perhaps admit you are wrong about more than one thing here.

        Snow in Arizona, yep, every single year!

    • Funnylilou says:

      @ as gossips outlets they are very reliable!! plus you are here on Celebitchy hon’ not on the board of The Herald Tribune! so for journalism…

      • Mairead says:

        You can do the search yourself if you want to (not that you will). Just search Catherine Zeta Jones, or even just Catherine Jones in Swansea. Her mother’s maiden name is Fair which will help narrow down the search. No need to answer any dates.

        If you used you would find that she is the only Catherine Jones, whose mother’s name is Fair who turns up in the birth registry in the 20th century.

      • Remote Control says:

        You seem a bit aggressive, Funnylilou. Did you forget to take your meds?

    • LAK says:

      The registry of births in Britain is proof enough, and that says she is 42, born in 1969.

      It’s an open record. you can go have a look.

    • JudyK says:

      YES! And even her husband was shocked to hear she was quite a lot older than he thought she was.

  39. kristipistol says:

    I don’t know about the rumor, but it looks like the blind item about hair thinning may be her.

  40. mln76 says:

    Well let’s see she’s in her 40′s, has had two kids, OH and she’s probably on Bi-polar meds that can cause weight gain. I vote not pregnant. But it’s nice to see a new target for Bumpwatch.

  41. Nyambura says:

    then why is she sooo interested in holding her coat?????

  42. Rachface24 says:

    I think she is 42 as well. I also think that celebrities have caused us to lose all grasp of natural aging. We’re so used to seeing women who are botoxed, snipped and getting peels and facials constantly.

  43. Ravensdaughter says:

    After all that Michael went through for treatment, I am wondering if they didn’t pre-freeze some sperm. Not an unusual practice. Whether this was a turkey baster baby or naturally conceived, I am sure this child will be a delight to C, M and the kids
    I can’t remember-my boys are 10 and 12 now (!), but don’t pregnant women turn over a lot of hair?- it grows, they shed it,etc.

  44. Maritza says:

    She does not look pregnant at all! Besides, with all the chemo he had I doubt he has any swimmers left. Not unless she froze his sperm like Celine Dione did.

  45. stephanie says:

    i think she looks lovely. I doubt she’s pregnant though. Great lady! Very strong.

  46. Shelly says:

    She looks 42 to me! And drop dead gorgeous! I think she’s just always seemed older because she has an old-school ladylike style.

  47. Cara says:

    I think it is kind of ridiculous that people take blind items about an actor at the white house as “proof” that Catherine Zeta-Jones is older than 42. She has been an actress since she was a teenager. Kind of hard to lie when there is proof of her age back then. I think she dresses older than her age and has not gone the botox and obsessive dieting and facial route that a lot of the celebs have.

  48. Nicole says:

    I thought that was JWoww!

  49. HA! says:

    come on! anyone wearing a herve leger dress would look pregnant… rolls eyes…

  50. hillbilly in the corner says:

    She a 42 yr old woman who has had NO botox , lip pumpers or anything done to her face…thats what real 42 year olds look like not like the plastic ,botox things the housewifes look like….She truly a beautiful woman…\
    As for having a child at 42…whats the big deal a lot of woman have child in their early forties and even late fortys if they are still fertile and in good heath not a thing wrong with it…my mother in laws las child was at 48 and the same age as my oldest child born 4 weeks apart….
    Just something to snip at her about…they didn’t snip with Kelly Preston had a baby at 46 or when serveral other older stars had their miracle babies mostly twins insidently conseived with a lot of help from fertility docters….If she is or isn’t is nobody but hers and her husbans buisness…hell they can afford them….

  51. benny says:

    Normally, I wouldn’t care if someone her age (or the age she’s claiming to be) had a baby. But given the serious health problems of her 80-year old husband Mr. Peanut, it doesn’t seem like it’s a good idea to have another baby with him. Nobody knows what the future will bring, but the odds that Mr. Peanut won’t live to see this kid into adulthood are better than normal. They already have two kids (and Mr. Peanut has another with his previous wife), so it’s not like it’s “now or never” for either of them to have a baby. Doesn’t seem fair to the baby.

  52. anonymoose says:

    Her hands, wrists, neck, and knobby knees say she’s 50-55. She may be 42, but looks older. It happens.

    Face looks wonky from fillers or surgery.

    Michael looks well.

  53. BELLA says:

    THEY HAVE 2 KIDS ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. kimberly says:

    test tube babies were miracles in the 80′s, now not so much . . .

  55. xxx says:

    CZ’s lawyers quickly threaten lawsuits that show any cosmetic surgery she may have had and age disputes, i”m surprised these sites are still up. That woman is not 42. Look at Jennifer Anniston and J Lo. Do they look the same age as her? She looks a good 5 years older. She is still a very beautiful woman, but not 42.

    She has definitely had some tweaking:

  56. Paloma says:

    This woman is beautiful and classy; however, many think she is older than her 42 years, including me. I am trying to figure out why. Maybe because we think of Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox; skinny, scraggly looking hair parted in the middle, do not dress classy, and have “odd taste” in men.

  57. the original bellaluna says:

    I thought that was a pregnant Debra Messing in that header photo!

    (Haven’t even read the story or comments yet. But she ain’t 42!)

  58. She looks really thin to me, and a very well preserved 42, who is NOT pregnant!!!!

  59. xxx says:

    Courtney Cox is 47:) and looks great too:)

  60. Ginger says:

    Just a note: Catherine came out and said she was diagnosed as bipolar and on medication. These medications cause weight gain as the number one side effect. I’m not saying she looks as if she’s fat or anything. She looks great as a matter of fact. However, it may be one cause of the “bump”. Whatever, I wish I were as skinny as she is in these pics.

  61. YuYa says:

    She’s been 42 for the last decade.

  62. anonymoose says:

    She looks like Eddie van Halen.

    (who is 57.)

  63. Amy says:

    If she was pregnant, wouldn’t her hair be as thick and lustrous as ever? I’ve never seen her hair looking so thin and sad.

  64. HappyMom says:

    When she became a star here in the US she was older than I-and strangely enough I’m now 45, and she’s 42. She’s a lovely woman, but she’s had a ton of work done. I don’t think she’s too old to have another baby, but Michael said years ago they were “done”-I can’t imagine they’d want to start over when their older kids are almost teens-especially considering their health issues.

  65. Meanchick says:

    42? Puh-leaze.

  66. Chrissy says:

    She may be 42, but she does look like she’s been 42 for awhile. Not that she looks bad. She’s pretty, but she just doesn’t have a really young look about her. I think she looks thinner than usual here, and a little tummy in a tight dress, even if you’re very thin, does not mean you’re pregnant.

  67. VoR says:

    It’s astonishing how wilfully ignorant so many people are. Even after it’s been pointed out repeatedly that all birth records are public in Britain, a copy of hers has been posted here and people have been told how they could go about looking at those official records themselves they still insist on spouting their rubbish.

    Do you simply not realise how utterly, utterly stupid that makes you look?

  68. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    It does snow in Arizona. Flagstaff, for example. Her legs look amazing.

  69. Sara says:

    Why does the media pretend the natural female body has a totally flat stomach? Lots of thin women still have a more rounded abdomen.

  70. Funnylilou says:

    I am glad to see I am not the only one thinking she is way older than her age, apparently most of people here think quite the same.

    @originalTiffany: I actually never have put a foot in Arizona, so sorry for mistaking, and when I want to go skiing I do it properly…over the french alps!! way much better that’s why all your celebrities come over here.

    @remote control: no I actually didn’ t “take my meds” but I would be really glad to borrow yours since you seem to need some really stronger ones… maybe then I will be able to believe a lot of things

    and no I don’t have an axe grind, that woman just look really really older, if she is indeed 42 I am truely sorry, and sorry for her

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      So you are talking out of your ass with no actual facts about AZ? Kinda like with Ms. Jones?

      I’ve skied the alps too, dear. Living in Europe now, but I can assure you we have some of the finest mountains and powder anywhere in the world. Not Flagstaff, but the Sierras, the Rockies, BC, they do let us host the Winter Olympics over here, no shortage of great skiing in the American and Canadian West.
      Utah is fabulous too. Got engaged on the top of Mammoth Mountain ski resort, learned to ski in Aspen.
      So you are an elitist as well as misinformed?

    • badrockandroll says:

      Funnylilou: Instead of hurling insults at other posters and relying on spurious sources, can you do us all a favour and explain why the UK government birth records, which have been linked by countless posters, and which you have ignored, show CJZ’s birth year as 1969? Why do you prefer Page 6 and anonymous sources to that reputable site? Do you think that there is a conspiracy? I would love to hear your theories.

  71. Mairead says:

    Just running this by the people too lazy to check the birth registries: this article on their wedding from 2010 (where she’s listed as 31, btw) mentioned that her father is 2 years younger than Michael Douglas.

    So is the thinking that Dai Jones was 13 when CZJ was born, if she was actually 10 years older than her claimed age? 8O

    Come on lads, don’t disappoint me with this one! :lol:,,20133195,00.html

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      You mean 2001, right? Mairead, you are spot on, this girl has been documented as far as age going back to her young performances.

      Funnililou, she looks 42, her husband had stage 4 cancer and she is bi-polar. Might age you a bit.

      Sorry, but you really aren’t coming across well. I know when you ski you do it “properly” in the alps.
      Maybe you should learn to post “properly” as well and not so many people would call YOU out for needing meds. Not me, btw.

      • Mairead says:

        :oops: Thanks for pointing out the error Tiffany. The article was from 2000.

        Speaking of her early performances The (Misogynist’s) Daily Fail has this excellent photo of a 9/19 year old CZJ

        *psssst – do you reckon that we’ve finally found a replacement to the old JenHen vs. Brangeloonie battles we used to have around here?*

      • Funnylilou says:

        @OriginalTiffany :

        No, not without facts, I stopped for a flight at Phoenix Arizona, that’s why I reasonably assumed that there are few chances that this place might be snowy, I was wrong so my mistake about that, but it is understandable regarding the fact that I am European and even if I know a lot of places in the US I don’t know them as well as an American.

        I did ski in Aspen and while it was quite pleasant it is in no way, and in absolutely no way remotely comparable to skiing in Innsbruck, Gstaad, Méribel, Courchevel, Zermat, Saint Gervais or Cortina d’ampezzo. But you should know since you supposedly live in “Europe” (no one say that overhere)…

        Alps are unanimously recognized and for a reason as the perfection for skiing and people from all the world fly to just ski in these station (even Americans, and particularly all the celebrities while they live 2 hours away from Aspen) while not so much do the same for just skiing in Aspen…

        The organization of the Olympics is set in order to diversify the host countries that is why dear…

        Regarding the fact that I don’t’ “properly” type, English is my 4th language, and even if sometimes as you wanted to point it , I make mistakes here and there, I think that so far I am doing well for a 4th language…

        Oh and You don’t come off well either, so it is quite inappropriate and a tad bit laughable to point it out in other people when obviously it is something you are far from managing well.

        An other thing, using the word “ass” or referring to “taking meds” is quite unfortunate and particularly while trying to “lecture” somebody because it actually says a lot about yourself and put another and not very flattering perspective on the little diatribe you were trying to make on someone else.

        Maybe be you should try first hand all the little precepts before sharing…

        I am not insulting or hurling on other posters, I am just adjusting to the level of the very aggressive answers that were made to me (and for the record I am not the one who used “ass” or “take you med” expressions) I firstly gave my opinion and the level of aggressivity increased and as someone who is not one to be pushed around I just adjusted. if I came off as hurling at you I am sorry that was not my intent.

        I actually checked the English website, and that is why I typed above that I am very sorry for her she looks way way older than her age.

    • anon says:

      Thanks for posting the link. What nice memories, pre 9/11, good times :-)

    • badrockandroll says:


      I hope that in your academic work you have learned to weigh and evaluate sources better than you have done here. And I also hope that if your research leads you astray, you admit it in an honest, gracious and straightforward fashion. You have not done so here.
      Here you have recently indicated that you checked the birth registry site, and that is why you had earlier stated that you felt sorry for her because she looked old. Not to get too semantical, but that post hardly is a retraction of your previous assertion that other posters who believed that CZJ was 42 were in her employ or gullible. In that post you do not acknowledge that she is in fact 42, you say that “IF she is 42″, you feel sorry for her.

      I think that it might have been easier for a scholar such as yourself to research some of the citations that were provided to you. Instead, over the course of many hours and many posts, you chose to continue to assert that your sources were good ones and the birth record links that other people had provided were “some random supposed infomations”.

      Not attacking you, just providing you with a gentle dress rehearsal for the attacks that will occur to you as you progress with your academics and profession. Trust me, I’ve been there and I’m waaaay older than 42!

      • Funnylilou says:

        Thank you for your advices but as it is reasonable to suppose, a few comments on a gossip board certainly cannot be representative of the person I am in real life, and don’t give to anybody the right to deduce assumptions about my studies, my behavior or my values.Or I can assume a lot myself on some posters.

        No research or studies are needed here it is a place where I suppose we are all way more “bitchy” (as in the name of the website) than in real life.
        And whenever other users begin to be harsh and abrasive I see no reason myself to be gracious and nice.

        This is not a serious place, no skills or commitment are needed I keep those for real and serious purposes where I am very succesful.

        I used the wording “if she is really 42″ because even now and after having check the register I still have a really hard time believing she is younger than my mom. and I am still doubtful when I look at her she looks so old… as a lot of other commenters have said.

        oh and I am myself just 23 so I will certainly follow my own journey and learn a lot by myself and be wiser when I will reach your age… but certainly not from a gossip board.

        but then again thank you for taking the time to answer me

  72. Hootie Hoo says:

    Not sure why people question her age. She looks 42 and is a classic beauty. I don’t think she is pregnant at all, actually she looks very thin. She use to have lovely curves earlier in her career.

  73. Diane says:

    Catherine is ALWAYS beautiful. I don’t think either of them need another child, do they?

  74. Eve012 says: or not she looks ancient. 42 in dog’s years sure!

  75. Allthatjazz says:

    Heather Graham is turning 42 today… and CZJ looks like her mom, there is no way these two women are the same age.

    • Jules says:

      Oh it is possible…my best friend from high school looked 35 when she was 16. We used to go to bars when we were young and she was underage, and she was never “proofed”!! I was 6 months older, but I never looked it.

  76. Camille (The original) says:

    She does look thinner than usual here. I like the pops of red with her outfit.

  77. ViloDeMenus says:

    I may be wrong but didn’t he have chemo for stage 4 throat cancer? I’d have to wonder between his cancer treatment and his age if he has viable sperms. I’d also have to question the quality. Plus I wouldn’t want to be hanging from a meat hook for the time CZ was 42 until her present age, she’s closer to 50 in real world chronology, and finally she’s bipolar and that would mean stopping her medication regime for the entire pregnancy which could mean disaster from psychiatric stand point. She’s a world class beauty, talented, still getting parts and has lovely children that both she and her husband are very hands on and involved with. Either way she’d be a very brave woman to take on that much change with so much risk involved.
