Paris Fashion Week: Jean Paul Gaultier… Things that go bump!

There is a fair number of celebrities and models that are pregnant at the moment (Giselle, Adriana Lima, Cerys Matthews, Emily Mortimer) and several award ceremonies coming up… we shall wait and see. I know that it is highly unlikely but it would be a brave move!
