Vanderpump Rules - Did Katie Maloney-Schwartz Just Announce That She's Pregnant?
Vanderpump Rules star Tom Schwartz took to Instagram earlier this week to show off his wife Katie Maloney-Schwartz and the muumuu she designed last Christmas because the comfy clothes had a “total quarantine vibe.” However, the couple didn’t realize - at first - that the picture legitimately looked like a pregnancy announcement.
In the photo, Maloney-Schwartz was relaxing on a bed wearing the muumuu that read “Make it 3, I’m not driving.” The muumuu also featured an ice cream cone with three scoops on top, and Maloney-Schwartz was also holding an ice cream cone with three scoops.
"MAKE IT 3! I made these muumuus for last Christmas, inspired by one of my favorites lines from home alone 2 but they didn’t make it on time. Then I realized this is a total quarantine vibe. A cozy little reminder that it’s ok to indulge. My new mantra, make it 3. I’m not driving,” wrote Maloney-Schwartz in the caption.
Immediately, fans started asking if it was a pregnancy announcement. When Maloney-Schwartz realized what was going on, she went to the comments section to clear things up.
"Omg!! Why didn’t it cross our minds that this would look like a pregnancy announcement!!?? Lol! Sorry everyone, no Bebe! But just a really cool muumuu," wrote Maloney-Schwartz.
The Vanderpump Rules star has been the subject of pregnancy rumors in the past, and she has never been shy about shooting them down. A lot of the rumors intertwine with Maloney-Schwartz’s struggles with weight, and her co-star James Kennedy is usually the first one to body shame her in front of Bravo cameras.
In 2016, Kennedy made fun of Maloney-Schwartz and asked if she was pregnant during a night out at a club after the SURvers refused to let him and Lala Kent sit with them at their table. In 2018, Kennedy made fun of her shorts at the LA Pride parade and told her to “lose some weight.”
But, on this week’s episode, Kennedy apologized to Maloney-Schwartz during a softball game between the staff members of SUR and Tom Tom. Kennedy blamed his bad behavior on drinking, and he told Maloney-Schwartz that he was finally sober, attending meetings, and trying to make some big changes in his life.
Katie Maloney-Schwartz and James Kennedy seem to be on much better terms now, and she has also become a vocal champion of body positivity. Recently, she revealed that she has lost more than 20 pounds and has learned a lot about nutrition after discovering an insulin sensitivity.
"Now I just have a great understanding on nutrition and what kinds of food I should and shouldn’t be eating,” she said on her Instagram Story, while making it clear that she is “not dieting,” but now has “a wealth of knowledge on what kind of foods to be eating.”
New episodes of Vanderpump Rules air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
