Sara Tomko: Weight Gain and Pregnancy Speculations
Sara Tomko (@saratomko19) tied the knot with T.J. Pederson on May 18, 2021. While basking in the spotlight that her marriage gave her, the actress has been hit with whispers of weight gain and then inferences of pregnancy from there.
It seems like the gossip of her gaining weight was by design to arrive at the conclusion that she was pregnant.
For the record, Sara Tomko has never expressed her thoughts and opinions on being a mother and hasn't shared any plans of having a baby with her husband after marriage. So, how the speculations came to be is still a mystery.
Going by the pictures she posts on her Instagram handle, they don't show any gains in weight and the performer doesn't look like she's pregnant from any angle. She made a public appearance for the premiere of her series Resident Alien.
In the event, she looked fitter than ever with no increase in weight from before the marriage. That should shut down all the weight gain speculations. About the pregnancy assumptions, it might not be noticeable till the fourth or fifth month when the baby bump starts to show.
So, there's a wild possibility that the baseless pregnancy speculations could be a hit. However, Sara Tomko has not announced any news of pregnancy. So, take those rumors with a grain of salt!
Either way, Sara seems to be very blissful in marriage to be bothered with the speculations about the pregnancy. Sara first met TJ during a project in 2015 and struck up a close friendship with him since the first meeting.
What made her take this friendship to more than friendship was when her grandmother passed away which made her realize that life is short and she ended up confessing to TJ her love for him.
The couple dated for five months before they got engaged and eventually got married in 2021.
