“Ri Sol Joo, the wife of Kim Jong Eun, has appeared in the North Korean state media for the first time in 50 days. …
“It was the first time since September 8th that Ri had appeared in North Korean media output, a fact that has attracted widespread attention and inspired a number of competing theories.
“One of the most prominent among these is that Ri has fallen pregnant, and therefore retreated from public life. Her appearance in two KCNA photographs, one from a significant distance in a long cream-colored jacket and another one while seated behind a table, do not allow for absolute confirmation of the theory, but lend it very strong credence.”
