Jennifer Lopez and Diane Sawyer danced around the question that begs to be asked – is the singer pregnant? – on Tuesday’s Good Morning America.
Speaking amid a crowd of people outside the ABC studio in the middle of Times Square, where Lopez, 38, performed a live concert to promote her new CD Brave, a pained-looking Sawyer said to the singer: “All right, all right, I know what everybody’s asking, and I know you have so little privacy in your life … so, I’m just going to say, ‘How are you?’ “
Replied Lopez: “I’m very well, thank you. This is really, really a great, happy time in my life. … Everything’s great.”
She credited her happiness to her new album and her current concert tour with husband Marc Anthony – for which Lopez has dressed in modest, loose-fitting ensembles designed by Roberto Cavalli. (Her GMA dress was equally ample.)
When the interview segment of Lopez’s appearance concluded, Sawyer, 61, said to her guest, “Can I hug you, ‘cause I’m happy.”
Sawyer then embraced Lopez’s shoulder, never coming anywhere near her stomach.
