Lara Bingle is pregnant. Not officially of course – she would never deign to reveal details of her private life to the media – but photos confirm the Australian model cum businesswoman is definitely well on the way to giving birth to her first child.
The images, published in OK! magazine, show a glowing Bingle, 27, in Palm Springs, California, with a visible baby bump.
Bingle and her partner, Australian actor Sam Worthington, 38, have been avoiding the media since early 2014 when the pair had a run in with a New York paparazzo. They are still fighting a $US10 million legal challenge from the photographer.
While Bingle and Worthington have never confirmed or denied they are expecting, photos of Bingle from the past six months have fuelled the rumour mill thanks to her choice of loose-fitting clothing.
Worthington, the star of Avatar, Paper Planes and the Jennifer Aniston-helmed Cake, has a reputation for being media shy. He had a brief stint on social media site Instagram in the early months of his relationship with Bingle but switched off when it all got too much.
Bingle, on the other hand, this week posted murky pictures of herself swimming with what can only be described as a fuller figure.
