Kate Middleton Impersonator's Simultaneous 'Pregnancy' Is Just Plain Creepy (VIDEO)

Say What!? 15

heidi agan kate middleton lookalikeRemember Heidi Agan? The 32-year-old waitress and mom of two who quit her job as a server in order to fulfill her life's ambition of ... impersonating Kate Middleton full-time? Well, she's taken her shtick to a whole new level: She plans to "shadow" Kate's pregnancy -- with fake baby bump prosthetics! Oh, how I wish I was kidding.

The BBC is reporting that Agan "bought a bump in various sizes" because, she says, "As Kate grows I will, too — to be authentic I thought it was important." Agh.

Oh, and somehow, it gets even creepier ...

Agan explains that her attempt to be "pregnant" at the same time as the Duchess has its challenges.

It's difficult at the moment as she's not big enough yet to change her entire wardrobe so it's difficult to see how she's going to dress it.

Is it just me or is this a weeee bit Single White Female?! Okay, okay, the woman makes a really awesome living -- $1,050 an appearance and she does about three a week -- being the faux Kate. So, I can understand that she wants to take her "craft" seriously and be as authentic as she can for her audiences. But something about this rubs me the wrong way.

Just like movie stars and politicians, Kate's a public figure who is bound to be copied left and right. That's a part of her life now. But no matter who you are -- Kate, Kim Kardashian, or someone who lives her life completely out of the public eye -- your pregnancy should be treated as a personal and, to some extent, a private matter. It's Kate's pregnancy -- hers alone. Her body, her business. That shouldn't be taken away from Kate just because she married a prince and happens to be carrying the heir to the throne.

Makes me really wanna tell Heidi Agan to get a life ... of her own!

I thought you were going to say she actually got pregnant because Kate did. THAT would be creepy.

How is she an "impersonator?" Maybe, she could pass for Kate's mom (or older.) Not Kate.

While I can think of events where someone who impersonates, say, a famous musician might be a fun addition to the festivities...what the heck kind of occasion requires a Kate Middleton impersonator?  At that price, no less?!

So creepy and she doesn't even look like her. How is she getting paid????

I was about to say this lady needs a life.  However, she makes about $3000/week playing pretend....................nope, still creepy.

I would sooooo do it. How fun....now to discover what celebrity I look like so I can do this...or just become celebrity myself. Yep fun stuff and money to be made.

Holy crap, if I were making over 3000 dollars a week just to impersonate someone I'd happily fake pregnancy to creepy or not. Seriously I'm sure this has improved her life and the life of her children more than she ever could have imagined I see nothing wrong with that. Plus we're all sitting here reading this and discussing it how is that any different. And there's nothing less private and personal then hundreds of pictures being taken of you everyday and being to sold to magazines and websites. Like this one !

Am I the only one who thinks she looks nothing like the duchess? A horrid fake tan, the same hairstyle, and the same clothes don't make a good impersonator.

She looks more like Celine Dion

Her job is basically playing a part. The character she plays is pregnant. Thus, she straps on a bump. How is that "creepy?" I think you Stir writers play Devil's Advocate merely to have something to submit. "OH! There's a person doing a job that I don't do! Isn't that creepy? Everybody! Say it's creepy!"
