Bikini pics show Lea Michele looking curvier

Lea Michele couldn’t have looked more loved-up on hols with her new man in Italy last week.

The 27-year-old was pictured kissing hottie Matthew Paetz – who she’s been dating since April – on board a boat before diving into the sea wearing a tiny bikini.

But it wasn’t her banging bod that got the internet abuzz.

Instead, the pics sparked wild speculation that the usually slimline Glee star could be pregnant, as she showed off a rounded tum and even posted photos of herself on Instagram with a sarong wrapped self-consciously around her midriff.

Speculation that Lea could already be expecting comes just weeks after she was a victim of a hoaxer who announced her pregnancy’ on Twitter. The deleted Tweet, purporting to be from Lea, read:Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.’

Lea – whose co-star Chris Colfer‘s Twitter account was also targeted – then Tweeted: I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then to make our passwords the names of our cats :)’.

A representative for Lea has since confirmed that her Twitter account was hacked.

Now back home in New York after her Italian holiday, Lea’s revealed she’s on a on a strict juicing diet, Tweeting: After all that yummy Italian now I got get back to the green!’ So was her bloated stomach just down to a few plates of pasta?

Lea hasn’t confirmed the pregnancy rumours and her reps didn’t get back to us. But it seems clear she’s finally ready to dive into her new relationship.
