( DM ) - According to the rumours, she has already ordered not one but two designer cots, with bedding to match.
And the size of Jennifer Lopez's burgeoning figure did nothing to dispel rumours that she is expecting twins.
The 38-year-old singer and actress, with her husband Marc Anthony, was attending a baby shower, a celebration party where soon-to-be parents receive gifts for their expected child - or children.
A tailored coat dress merely accentuated the size of J-Lo's bump as she arrived for the event on the rooftop of the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York.
The speculation about twins was heightened by the fact that some guests brought pink-wrapped parcels and others blue - although that could simply have been because they don't know the sex of the star's forthcoming offspring, believed to be due in March.
Among those who attended the baby shower were Miss Lopez's mother Guadalupe and TV presenter Diane Sawyer.
The event was hosted by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, who produced J-Lo in the 2002 movie Maid In Manhattan.
Talk of pregnancy began after a wind machine blew up the performer's flimsy top on stage revealing a distinctly rounded stomach in place of her usually toned midriff. She had also been seen holding her stomach protectively at one stage show.
pBut it was only in November that Miss Lopez put an end to months of speculation by confirming that she is expecting her first child, by her husband of three years. Anthony has three children already from previous relationships.
For months Lopez had remained tight-lipped about whether she was having a child - but her favourite designer was less restrained. Close friend Roberto Cavalli let it slip in October that the star was expecting her first child.
He had known knew because he had to constantly had to alter her gowns to accommodate her changing shape.
Cavalli had said this was forcing him to change his designs for her touring costumes.
He admitted in an off-guard moment: "Well, Jennifer Lopez, at this moment, she requests something very special because she is waiting for the baby."
She finally broke the news, when she told fans on the last night of her tour in Miami, "Yes I'm pregnant".
Lopez announced at the end of the show "We're expecting" and she and Anthony then kissed on stage. This will be Lopez's first child, but Anthony has three children already from previous relationships.
Before her public admission, talk of pregnancy had been sparked after a wind machine blew up the performer's flimsy top on stage revealing a distinctly rounded stomach - in place of her usually toned midriff.
She had also been seen holding her stomach protectively at one stage show.
Anthony had also stoked whispers of a child during the couple's show in Los Angeles when he sang a special dedication to his wife which included the lyrics, "They say that the road ain't no place to start a family".
