After Chadwick Boseman’s death on August 28, 2020, reports of his widow Taylor Simone Ledward’s pregnancy began to buzz.

MediaTakeOut reported that an anonymous source said Ledward became pregnant before Boseman’s death. The site claimed the source told them, « Chad wanted kids, and so did [Taylor]. Since they knew he was going to leave us, I wouldn’t be surprised if he made her pregnant so she could carry his semen. « 

They said they recently showed a picture of Ledward to Boseman’s close friend and he replied, » Yes, she looks pregnant to me. She was much thinner before. “

These claims were speculation and were never confirmed by Ledward. If she were pregnant, she would have a child by now.

The false reports that Ledward was pregnant, angered readers and led them to criticize websites reporting this on social media. Fans accused the sites of being irresponsible and insensitive to posting such a story.

« This article claims that Chadwick Boseman’s wife is pregnant only because of her weight gain, » one person tweeted. « It is sick that media companies falsely accuse a grieving woman for just a few clicks. »

« This is very irresponsible reporting, » they wrote. « It’s because she put on weight? SMH. At least confirm she’s pregnant. I know you wanted to get in early, but if she’s not pregnant and is depressed, eats more, etc. then this is a really crappy move. » . « 

 » How dare you write things like that? « read another tweet. To draw clout from someone’s tragedy? The woman is likely to be depressed. How can you spread silly rumors (which are NOT your thing by the way) just because she gained weight? “

Chadwick Boseman died in August 2020 after a four year battle with colon cancer. His publicist told the New York Times that the Black Panther star learned that he had stage three colon cancer in 2016 and that he had advanced to stage four. In a statement announcing his death, it was revealed that Boseman had been treated during the filming of many of his final films.

« A true fighter, Chadwick has held out and brought you many of the films you have have learned to love so much, « the statement reads. “From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and several others, they were all filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.” When Ledward accepted Boseman’s NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, she challenged all bystanders to get screened for colon cancer.

« If you are 45 years of age or older, please get screened. Don’t postpone it any longer, please get examined, ”she said. « This disease is beatable if you get it at an early stage. So there is no time to waste even if you don’t have a family history and even if you think nothing is wrong. » If you are younger than 45, please take care of your health proactively. Know the signs and know your body – listen to your body. “

Boseman faces another posthumous victory at the 93rd Academy Awards. He is nominated for Best Actor for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Tune in to ABC on April 25, 2021 at 8:00 AM EST.
