Monroe herself had failed pregnancy for her health problems. But, no, she never had any abortions. Furthermore, the father of the child was the same during her failed pregnancy. Many even believe that she had several abortions for which she could not become pregnant. Marilyn, a novel written by Norman Mailer, had such rumors. Later on, the author said that he wrote the novel only for earning money. Hence, there are no ways that everything he put in that book would be the truth.
No, Marilyn Monroe was never pregnant secretly despite her having several affairs and marriages. The rumors regarding the legendary actress about her being pregnant secretly had begun in 2017. Some rare photos of the actress with baby bumps got published during that time. Thus, many people and even tabloids begin to assume that Marilyn was pregnant secretly. But, there were never any hints for suggesting that she was pregnant. Furthermore, if she had been pregnant, then her baby would have been revealed, considering how she was very famous. However, there were no such cases. Also, she never had any children or any reported pregnancies during her lifetime, even though she had been married three times.
Marilyn Monroe’s Pregnancy Photos and Rumours
An auction house unveiled some extraordinary photos of Marilyn Monroe with a baby bump in November 2016. The photos only came into the limelight in 2017. The auction house revealed the photos as original slides for selling them from Freda Hull’s estate. Freda Hull was a well-known confidante of Marilyn Monroe. However, the photos got sold only for $2,240 as no one could recognize their true value. Freda kept the photos hidden until her death and also known as her most prized possessions.
The photos got shot outside New York’s Fox Studios on July 8, 1960. They got just taken after Monroe had completed hair tests, and the costume fits for one of her movies. The photos feature clearly the baby bump of the actress. Freda also claimed that Monroe was in the pregnancy’s early stages. There were speculations that Arthur Miller, then-husband of Monroe, was not the baby’s father. It was Yves Montand, an Italian-french actor who was the father of the baby. The close neighbor of Freda also claimed that Monroe was indeed pregnant, as confided to him by Freda.
The Truth Behind Marilyn Monroe’s Pregnancy
Well, it is still not known how much is the truth behind Marilyn Monroe’s pregnancy. Who knows what is the truth? Both Marilyn and her close confidante, Freda, died. The revelation of the photos took place after the death of Freda. Furthermore, the photos got taken when Marilyn was in the shooting. It could be the case that it was a part of the filming. As for Freda, she could have kept the photos as Marilyn was dear to her. Someone could have made everything regarding the pregnancy as there is no one to confirm the truth. Thus, there is no evidence directly suggesting that Marilyn was indeed pregnant.
Marilyn Monroe’s Pregnancies
Marilyn Monroe herself wanted to be a mother for than anything else. But, she could not do so due to her health issues. In 1957, she underwent emergency surgery for ectopic pregnancy. The actress was immediately from her home to the city. Later on, she became pregnant one more time in 1958. However, she again could not give birth and lost the child for some reason. In both cases, Arthur Miller was the father of the child. The claims of Tony Curtis that they had a child were wholly false.
