Photos of a Pregnant Marilyn Monroe

EXCLUSIVE: Never-before-seen pictures of secretly pregnant Marilyn Monroe, who confided to her close friend that her Let’s Make Love co-star Yves Montand was the baby’s father – not husband Arthur Miller

  • Marilyn Monroe’s friend Frieda Hull kept the color pictures she took of Marilyn’s baby bump private but were sold as part of Frieda’s estate last year
  • The pictures were taken in July, 1960 in New York City; Marilyn was 34 years old
  • Marilyn and married French actor Yves Montand began working together on Let’s Make Love in February of that year and their affair began soon after 
  • The images were the prized possession of Hull, who worked for Pan Am and became close to the star while part of a group of fans known as the Monroe Six
  • Frieda dubbed the pictures ‘the pregnant slides’ – a reference to a shocking secret the screen siren kept right up until her death
  • Tony Michaels, a friend and neighbor of Frieda’s, bought the images at the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Marilyn Memorabilia Auction held by Julien’s Auctions in LA
  • Michaels was told by Frieda that Marilyn lost the baby. ‘It was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion’
