Britney pregnancy riddle
13:30 20 January 2005
Britney Spears has bought a maternity swimming costume - sparking speculation she is pregnant.
The sexy singer, who has made no secret of her desire to start a family with husband Kevin Federline, reportedly ordered the costume from exclusive Los Angeles boutique Babystyle and then asked staff if there were any shops nearby for expectant mothers.
Shopper Jenny Dyke, who was in the store, is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "She spent 20 minutes in the changing rooms. I don't know why anybody would want to try on clothes for pregnant women unless they are expecting themselves."
The 23-year-old pop babe went into the store with two bodyguards, who reportedly asked for the door to be shut while she looked around.
Britney recently admitted she was desperate to have a baby since marrying Kevin - who has two children with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson - last September, saying she wanted to be a young mother.
She said: "A lot of people think you should wait till you're older to have kids. I've had a career since I was 16, I have travelled the world and even kissed Madonna! The only thing I haven't done so far is experience the closest thing to God and that's having a baby. I can't wait!"
