Magazine Caught Having Photoshopped Kate Middleton Waistline On Pregnant ‘It’s Twins’ Cover

Kate Middleton is going to be a mom to twins — at least, according to Star magazine.

Just two weeks after Demi Lovato slammed the publication for it’s “Kate’s Pregnant” cover, the glossy gossip title again claimed the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting. On it’s Oct. 1 cover, a beaming Middleton is all smiles during a Diamond Jubilee appearance on Sept. 11 in Singapore, sipping water from a wine glass and gently gracing a seemingly bumped-up belly with her hand.

But Celebuzz has learned the photo is not quite what meets the eye.

When put side by side with the original, untouched image of Middleton, distinct differences materialize. Not only has is her floral slim-fit frock been mysteriously blown out — photoshopped in magazine parlance — but Prince William’s wife is mysteriously missing her right-hand ring on Star’s “It’s Twins!” cover.

There’s one glaring detail that gives away Star’s photo doctoring: as compared to the real snap, a far smaller portion of the Duchess’ left forearm is visible on the magazine cover.

And the inside story seems no more genuine. According to a “family friend,” an “insider” and a “source,” Star claims the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting twins after a “passionate night” in Wales following the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The report suggests the “double baby joy” comes as a “timely blessing for Kate,” who’s been wrapped up in scandal since three publications have printed semi-nude sunbathing snaps of the Duchess on vacation with her husband at secluded, private chateau in the south of France.

Star’s story follows its Sept. 17 issue that declared, “It’s Official! Kate’s Pregnant!,” based on Middleton’s alleged “expanded waistline.” Demi Lovato, who’s famously struggled with body issues, took aim at the tabloid, tweeting: “So apparently Kate Middleton (William?) is pregnant because of THIS picture… Are you KIDDING ME?!!”

“And people wonder why girls/guys have body image issues..,” she continued. “Whether she is or not, she still has a beautiful body. Shame on you Star magazine.”

Do you think Star magazine altered the Middleton image? Weigh in below.
