The cover of Star Magazine says “After 16 months of IVF, LeAnn finally pregnant as Eddie walks out. LeAnn devastated; Eddie secretly seeing his ex, Brandi (“I knew he’d crawl back”).” Incidentally, since Brandi just sided with LeAnn on Eddie’s latest cheating scandal it’s unlikely they’re still romantically involved in any way.
Inside the issue, the magazine claims that after 16 months of getting treatments to have a baby of her own, friends think LeAnn is expecting. She is excited but Eddie already has two sons from a previous marriage and doesn’t care to add to the brood. “Eddie never shared LeAnn’s baby fever,” a source told Star. “He already has two sons and has never shown much interest in having any more children.”
LeAnn is reportedly obsessed with having a baby and Eddie is spending lots of time away from home. Friends are worried about the state of their marriage and her mental state. “LeAnn is devastated that Eddie doesn’t want a baby as much as she does,” added the insider. LeAnn is getting “sick of him undermining her whenever she talks about having kids.” In return, he “can’t stand” her “mood swings from the hormones taken for IVF treatments.”
At the moment, LeAnn is too worried that Eddie might cheat with his Baby Daddy co-star, Chelsea Kane, she cannot fully enjoy her growing family. “She would never admit it, but she has really strong worries about hanging on to Eddie… After all, he cheated on Brandi multiple times, and he was married to her when they first got together! She is very afraid of what might happen if her influence on him lessens in any way.”
LeAnn is convinced she can change Eddie’s mind and make him excited too. “LeAnn has waited too long and worked too hard to give up at this point,” the source says. “She’s not giving up on her marriage or her expanding family. One way or another, she will see to it that 2015 is the year she finally gets everything she ever wanted.”
In response to the story, his rep told Gossip Cop: “Star is so laughable it is actually sad. The stories they come up with are so ludicrous and untrue… there is ZERO truth to anything in their story.”
UPDATE: LeAnn reacted to the story on Twitter. Of course.
