Baby bump camouflage

So, Nicole Kidman is pregnant: that'll explain why she did an entire indoors press junket at the over-heated Waldorf Astoria back in late November, wrapped in an enormous black wool winter coat. I was sitting inches away from her as she promoted her new flick Margot at the Wedding and, eejit that I am, it never occurred to me that she might be hiding a baby bump from the eagle eyes of the world's press.
