The cover says “Selena’s secret: Pregnant and alone. Her shocking decision to raise the baby by herself. ‘It was meant to be,’ Her surprise reaction; How she told Justin; From rehab to religion, how pregnancy changed her forever.” (In Touch and Life & Style use “pregnant and alone” as their headline almost every week, but with a different celebrity, so make of this what you will).
Inside the issue, a source claims Selena was pregnant with Justin’s baby two years ago, although that ended in a miscarriage.
“In 2012, she got pregnant and miscarried Justin’s baby,” a source tells In Touch magazine. “Nothing in her life has been the same since.”
“She wanted that baby. She was convinced it was meant to be and that it was a sign that she and Justin should be together forever,” the source added.
However, Justin wasn’t pleased, “His team felt it would ruin his career because at the time he had a clean image. They thought it would take away from his reputation as a heartthrob if he were walking around with a baby carrier at 18. Or he’d look like a real jerk if he wasn’t involved in bringing up his own child.”
His reaction reportedly “crushed” Selena, who “went into a complete downward spiral” and later miscarried.
This was reported as a blind item at the time, although the couple never addressed the rumours.
