Was Ariana Grande Pregnant With Mac Miller's Baby - Or Is The Rumor A Way To Promote 'Self Care'?

I know we're all well past the demise of Ariana Grande and Mac Miller (whose new single "Self Care" was just released last week) and have moved on to join #TeamPeteDavidson, but now that the mysterious figure behind celebrity and crime gossip blog Crazy Days and Nights revealed the identity of the "A-list singer" he (or she) shared a blind item about back in March, heads are scratching as we wonder, "Was Ariana Grande pregnant with Mac Miller's baby?" and "Is that why they really broke up?"

Or ... is this "new information" just another cog in the wheel of the publicity stunt each and every highly calculated stage in their relationship is believed by some to have been?

On March 18, 2018, the blogger known only as Enty Lawyer shared the following blind item:

"With as many medications as she is taking, and the types of medications that have been prescribed, people are hopeful that the rumors this A list singer who has had a rough year is pregnant, are just that, rumors."

Today, he/she returned to scene of the blind item to reveal that the singer in question none other than Grande herself.

"Ariana Grande," Enty Lawyer posted on a page now tagged with the label, "Blind items revealed."

"(Apparently she was pregnant or at least had a really big scare. When it was determined she wasn't, that is when she split with Mac Miller. Oh what might have been if she had stayed pregnant/scare proved true)"

While there has never been (and probably never will be) any confirmation of a pregnancy from Ariana or Mac, this rumor does make you wonder.

After collaborating and kissing on the song and music video for "The Way" in 2013, fans began speculating that the two were seeing each other. They didn't go public with their relationship, however, until late 2016.

"We hung out for a long time and everything just happened organically," Mac told People Magazine of their relationship after collaborating on "My Favorite Part."

"We love making music together — we do that always. But she’s my best friend in the world.”

Things seemed to go swimmingly between them for two years — meaning, no cheating scandals, which is a huge feat in Hollywood — until rumors started circling this past March that she was pregnant with Mac's baby.

Other than telling her fans about new music, Ariana went MIA on social media for three months and hadn't made a single public appearance in 2018, causing fans to began speculating that she was pulling a Kylie Jenner and hiding out from the world due to an unexpected and unannounced pregnancy.

It didn't help the rumors that someone on Ariana's team supposedly "confirmed" the pregnancy.

“Ariana Grande is pregnant with Mac Miller’s baby,” the alleged insider told The Hollywood Gossip. "She is two months pregnant and is very excited. She is waiting until at least the 20-week mark to announce it. She was very inspired by Kylie after FaceTiming her in October.”

The source also said that the tragic bombing that claimed the lives of 22 of her fans during a concert in Manchester made her take another look at her priorities.

After visiting her grandmother over Christmas, she reportedly realized she wanted her grandmother to meet her baby before she passes.

The insider also said that, though the pregnancy came with complications, she and Mac were already picking out names: Luna for a girl, and Frank (her grandfather's name) for a boy.

When Ariana was finally spotted in public again on March 10, she was wearing a puffy coat and holding a notebook in front of her tummy, leading people to speculate even further.

"She is wearing a lot of oversized sweaters/black clothes so she can hide the small bump," the source claimed. "She has had some complications. She is very worried about birth because it will most likely be a C Section because of how small she is."

If there was ever baby, it never came to be, because a) there's been no sighting, b) Ariana has not shown any signs of a bump, and c) in May, TMZ reported that the couple had parted ways but "still remain friends."

While sources said the reason for the breakup was due to their busy schedules, Ariana later revealed that their relationship was "toxic" in a tweet to a fan who had suggested she "dumped him for another dude."

"How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw [by the way] isn't the case (just Cinderella is ab[out] me)," she wrote.

"I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course)....shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem. Let's stop doing that."

The tweet came just days after Mac was arrested for a DUI and his involvement with a hit-and-run. He crashed into a utility pole with his Mercedes-Benz and left the scene.

Even more recently, just minutes after Ariana released her new song "God Is A Woman," Mac dropped his single "Self Care," which seemed to hint at how he was doing after the breakup.

"We play it cool, we know we f--ked up, yeah / You keep on sayin' you in love, so / Tell me are you really down?"

He also references the crash by saying he's been "losin' my mind," and "That Mercedes drove me crazy, I was speedin'."

However, others have said the song was produced and completed last year, when the two were still together.

Of course, if you've read the theories that Miller and Grande were NEVER really an item, and their "relationship" was only ever a business partnership meant to sell records and cover up her potentially controversial relationship with Pete Davidson ... well, the fact that this little tidbit was suddenly revealed right as heavy promotion of Miller's new music hits, well, it all might actually make a whole lot of sense.

But IDK ...

Either way, though it may or may not have been a pregnancy or a loss of one that drove this couple apart, I think it's fair to say their issues went well beyond the bounds of conflicting schedules.
