Kate Hudson is allegedly pregnant. An American tabloid has come up with claims that the actress and American actor and producer Brad Pitt are expecting a child together.

Star magazine claimed: "Tongues were wagging after a recent photo emerged of Kate in Los Angeles, looking relaxed in a cropped top and yoga pants - and revealing what appears to be the beginning of a baby bump."

A source said: "Brad wasn't planning on having another kid soon. If Kate is indeed pregnant, that will change his outlook pretty fast. He's such a stand-up, easygoing guy that I'm sure his reaction would be that he'd view it as a blessing and the start of a new chapter in his life."

The insider continued: "She's livid about the rumors that Kate is already pregnant. I don't know what Brad and Kate have planned for the holidays. But if it does turn out that she's pregnant, it would be one heck of a New Year's surprise!"

Brangelina fans around the world were shocked after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on 19 September citing irreconcilable differences.

Meanwhile, Marion Cotillard was also blamed for the couple's separation. The French actress and Pitt had worked together in the spy thriller Allied, and unfortunately, the Macbeth star's name was dragged into their split.

In an interview on The Today Show, the pregnant actress responded to rumours that they were having an affair. She said: "I never take anything personally when it doesn't concern me. So I didn't take it personally because I had nothing to do with those rumors or situation... I don't give energy to this."
