Baby mystery over Kim Jong's wife

Kim Jong Un

The wife of North Korea’s leader might be pregnant, judging by video that shows her with what appears to be a baby bump.

On state TV Ri Sol Ju is shown walking slowly next to her husband, Kim Jong Un, at the mausoleum where his late father’s body was unveiled.

There is no official word from Pyongyang about a pregnancy. In addition, Ri is shown wearing a billowing traditional Korean dress in black that makes it difficult to know for sure.

North Koreans are reluctant to discuss details of the Kim family that have not been released by the state. However there are rumours even in Pyongyang about whether the country’s first couple is expecting.
