UPDATE: There's some new info on where this rumor is probably coming from.
Is Kenny Chesney gonna be a dad? The short answer is no, at least I don't think so.
Tonight I got an email from a reader asking me if I had heard a rumor that Kenny Chesney's girlfriend is pregnant with that being a large part of why Kenny's taking 2014 off from touring.
Well I hadn't even heard that Kenny Chesney had a girlfriend let alone that she might be pregnant so, like I always do when I get these sorts of questions emailed to me, I went snooping around.
There was nothing from the usual suspects — The National Enquirer, Star, Us, TMZ, etc. — so I went and Googled. A lot of times the country music forums around the web are good places to hear the newest scuttlebutt, but I got nothing there. I did, however, find an article on MediaMass that said Kenny Chesney's girlfriend is pregnant.
Another source revealed that “she TWICE made toasts … by drinking water instead of wine,” adding that it is “highly unusual” to “toast with anything but a full glass of wine.” (In case you weren’t aware, pregnant ladies aren’t supposed to drink alcohol. It specifically says that in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”)
Unfortunately for all you folks out there getting ready to buy a box of cigars and knit little blue or pink booties for Kenny and his mystery girlfriend, you should probably know that MediaMass is a self-professed fake website. Well it's a real website but it writes 100% fake "news" stories, something it mentions in the fine print.
Strange huh? I'm not sure why anyone would want to make up odd stories that start knowingly false rumors but whatever floats your boat.
Have I mentioned that you can follow NashvilleGab on Facebook?
