Rumours that Katie Holmes could be pregnant with her second child have been quashed by the actress' representative.

Life & Style Weekly reported recently that Holmes had been spotted with a rounded stomach and that guests at her and Cruise's post-wedding party thought she had a maternal glow.

"She had that special glow about her. Some women in the room were certain that she's expecting," a guest told the magazine.

But the Batman Begins star's representative poured water on the gossip fire, saying: "To our knowledge, Katie is not pregnant."

If she was, it would be the latest instalment in a whirlwind year for Holmes. In the past 12 months she has given birth to her first daughter, Suri, and married her lover Tom Cruise in a lavish, A-list ceremony in Italy.

Perhaps the delicious Italian food and honeymoon indulgence is all that is to blame for the rounded stomach then
