LeAnn Rimes is fuelling rumours she’s pregnant with her first child after stepping out in a billowing outfit that appears to strategically cover a baby bump.

The 30-year-old star has been candid about wanting a child with husband Eddie Cibrian.

LeAnn has sparked reports the couple is expecting after displaying a healthier figure in recent weeks and growing out her blonde hair dye.

New photos of the country music singer released on Tuesday show her walking through Washington, DC’s Washington Dulles Airport swamping her figure in layers of clothes.

The look is a stark contrast from LeAnn’s typical body-conscious clothing.

The star is known never to shy away from an opportunity to show off her athletic body, leading critics to speculate she's suffered from an eating disorder.

LeAnn has denied those claims.

A representative for the singer attempted to quiet pregnancy rumours earlier this month after America's Star magazine published a report LeAnn was expecting.

The star had reportedly been seen twice visiting an OBGYN with Eddie.

LeAnn is stepmother to Eddie’s two sons with ex-wife Brandi Glanville.

The singer has previously opened up about her desire to have children of her own.

“Eddie and I talk about having kids and I would love to be a mom,” she told E! News back in December.

LeAnn also opened up about her 30-day stint in rehab last August for emotional issues.

She connected her time in treatment to her desire to be a healthier role model for her family.

“I didn't ever want to bring a child into the world without taking care of myself. And that was another reason I decided to go (into rehab),” she explained.

Eddie and LeAnn married in April 2011 after meeting on the set of their 2009 Lifetime television movie Northern Lights.

The couple notoriously began an affair that broke up their marriages to respective partners Brandi Glanville and Dean Sheremet.

LeAnn has yet to comment on the latest pregnancy rumours.

It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
