Should you ever ask a woman if she's pregnant?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Is she or isn't she? How about her? Her? Him? (Looks it.) She definitely is. (I think.) Have you ever see a woman coming down the street and want to ask "Are you pregnant?"

We human beings are curious creatures. It turns out even some 4-year-olds want to know. Justin Otero is now banned for life from the Doughnut Inn in Monroe, Connecticut. It was a harsh price to pay, some say, for such a seemingly innocent mistake. The boy asked a customer if she had a baby in her belly (she didn't).

Little Otero should have probably first consulted mister manners, Thomas Farley.

"If you're meeting somebody for the very first time, I would wait for the woman to bring it up, I would not bring it up even if she looks like she's about to have the baby tomorrow," he says.

But, what if it's too late and you've popped the question on a woman who is nowhere close to popping herself? This is what Farley says you should say to catch yourself: "Wow you just look like you're glowing, you look so radiant, I naturally presumed you must have been pregnant."

If you're worried it can't get worse, it can, i.e. extending your hand to touch that belly.

Back to plain-old asking if someone is pregnant or not. I nearly made the mistake myself.

So, what's the bottom line if you see someone you're not so sure of?

Some women told us to keep your mouth shut. Never ask!
