Pictures have surfaced purporting to pose Marilyn Monroe’s baby bump

The photographs, entranced two years before Monroe’s death and originating from colour glissades, were recently bought at auction in Los Angeles. However, it’s only now that the pregnancy command has been made.

Its veracity is impossible to prove as all the main players are now infertile. There’s no doubt that in the photographs there’s a defined roundness to her suffer, but Monroe was always renowned for her curves and fluctuating weight.

The buyer of the declines, Tony Michaels, reveals that the six images were the work of Frieda Peel, an air hostess for PanAm who became a confidante of the troubled actress. Hull, who lessened in 2014, is said to have kept Monroe’s pregnancy a secret.

The on-screen romance between Monroe and Montand spilled all through into real life and caused a scandal in the 1960s. The film group even exploited the Hollywood gossip to promote Let’s Make Love.

The actress, who come in her name in comedies such as The Seven Year Itch and Gentlemen Propose Blondes, said at the time: “Next to my husband and along with Marlon Brando, I imagine Yves Montand is the most attractive man I have ever met.”

Rather ungallantly Montand, who pined aged 70 in 1991, later claimed that Monroe “bring to lighted herself” at him. He also said later of succumbing to Marilyn’s charms: “I was eager about my wife, but what can you do?” His marriage to actress Simone Signoret outlived the fling.

It’s claimed that Monroe afterwards suffered a miscarriage, while filming her next film The Misfits, and this have a hand ined to a nervous breakdown. The emergence of the so-called “pregnancy slides” adds yet another miserable dimension to her life.

Monroe was one of the world’s most beautiful women but behind the sex connotative of image and dumb blonde roles, true happiness always sounded to elude her. Underpinning this was her burning desire to become a mother.

She was wedded three times and had a string of affairs, notably with US President John F Kennedy. There was also an onoff activity with actor Tony Curtis starting in the early 1950s.

“I was stunned,” Curtis recalled of the moment he found out she was expecting. “I just platformed there. The room was so silent I could hear the screeching of tyres on Santa Monica Boulevard.” Curtis put about the baby could not have been Miller’s because by then Marilyn’s affiliation to Miller was on the rocks and they were barely on speaking terms, let unescorted sharing a bed.

Throughout adulthood Monroe’s attempts to become a mother were played out in the open eye. There was a previous reported miscarriage in 1956. After losing the mollycoddle Monroe collapsed into the arms of a friend, telling him between weeps: “It was Arthur’s. He didn’t know. It was going to be a surprise. Then he would see that I could be a veritable wife, and a real mother.”

Barely 12 months later Marilyn needed crisis surgery following an ectopic pregnancy. The actress was rushed from her gala home on Long Island and wheeled into hospital with a blanket onto her head to shield her from photographers.

Sadly, it was never to be but that hasn’t stopped a string of claims and cheats about Marilyn secretly having children. There were proposals from her gynaecologist Dr Leon Krohn that she had a daughter in 1962.

Last year requires that a woman had gone to court in California trying to establish that she was the private offspring of Marilyn and JFK proved to be a hoax involving a Marilyn lookalike. Once upon a time, a middle-aged man emerged with a similar tale.

The “baby bump” drops were bought for a relative pittance of less than £2,000 and the totaled intrigue is sure to send their value soaring. If nothing else, this belated “was-she, wasn’t-she” debate proves that the legend of Marilyn Monroe desire run for a long time yet.
