After being married for two years to Eddie Cibrian, the singer is ready to be a mother! The country crooner has gained a little weight on her super thin frame, and has been avoiding booze — could she be pregnant?

LeAnn Rimes, 30 and husband, Eddie Cibrian, 39, could be starting a family of their own! According to a new report, the couple found out she LeAnn pregnant with her first child around the holidays.

As HollywoodLife.com exlusively reported, LeAnn has been gaining weight to try and get pregnant, and sources close to her say she’s been taking better care of herself to prepare to carry a baby — she’s stopped drinking, started eating better and is letting her dyed blonde hair grow out!

“LeAnn is staying coy, but her friends say she’s beyond excited to be having a baby,” a friend told Star magazine.

“She didn’t have a single margarita in Cabo over Christmas and New Years,” said the source. “Normally, she can’t get enough!”

On Feb. 7, the couple was snapped in a pic holding what looks to be shot glasses of alcohol on Eddie’s Instagram account, with the caption “drinking and Instagramming,” mocking the title of his ex-wife Brandi Glanville‘s book, Drinking and Tweeting.

But there was no pic of them actually taking the shot — the shot glasses could have been just for the Instagram snapshot (and dig at Brandi)?

A source close to LeAnn tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “she’s a hundred percent trying for a baby. However, if she is pregnant, she hasn’t told any of her friends the good news.” The insider doesn’t think she’s pregnant — yet.

How LeAnn Rimes Is Being Healthier

The singer has been photographed with darker hair and has gained weight to get pregnant, which is different from the days when she was rumored to be abusing laxatives and having an eating disorder.

“LeAnn has stopped bleaching her hair, and is relaxing her diet to gain weight the way a pregnant woman is supposed to,” the source continued. “She hasn’t always taken the best care of her health, and she’s determined to do it right. She’s wanted Eddie’s baby ever since they got together.”

Eddie Cibrian’s Baby Fear

But even though Eddie is the father to two boys from his marriage to Brandi, the insider says he would be terrified to have a girl.

“He knows how badly he’s always treated the women in his life,” said the source. “It would drive him crazy trying to take care of a girl.” Yikes!

So HollywoodLifers do YOU think LeAnn is really pregnant? Are she and Eddie ready to be parents? Let us know in the comments below!
