Rumour mills have been spinning overtime with news that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is pregnant with her second child, but her recent slimmer appearance has slammed the reports.
Sahara Samay carried a report on 25 April stating that the Bachchan bahu is pregnant again with a photo of her with husband Abhishek Bachchan.
The photo was clicked when Aishwarya along with her husband and in-laws came out to vote on 24 April in Mumbai.
"Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan planning second baby and the news was confirmed when she stepped out of her house to vote in the Lok sabha elections," the website reported.
The website also posted a photo of the couple in which Aishwarya Rai is looking chubbier than usual. But it looks like that the photo has been tampered and stretched from one side.

The website further stated that the former Miss World has rejected her comeback film with Mani Ratnam and also shunned long time professional commitments
But earlier this month Jr Bachchan confirmed that her wife is doing a film with Ratnam. Even, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen has confirmed that she is working in "Happy Anniversary" film with Aishwarya Rai which will be directed by Prahlad Kakkar.
"Aishwarya, I am looking forward to working with you! The truth is that Prahlad, Ash and I go back a long way... to our beauty pageant days. I've never known her well enough to call her a friend. But I think she is a great human being. In those days, our lives ran parallel. Later, we chose different paths. But there was no rivalry," Sen told Hindustan Times recently.
Ash-Abhi recently celebrated their wedding anniversary. The couple has been blessed with a baby girl Aaradhya. During her first pregnancy, Amitabh Bachchan officially made an announcement on Twitter and even when Aaradhya was born, Bachchans announced it on the social networking site.
But this time, Bachchans have not issued any official statement about the baby.
