Oscar winner Tom Hooper breaks off engagement to pregnant fiancee

Hollywoodnews.com: It’s enough to make a King stutter.
Tom Hooper, Oscar-winning director of “The King’s Speech,” reportedly broke off his engagement to fashion designer Tara Subkoff, even though they’d only just recently celebrated their one-year anniversary. Sources tell the NY Post that Hooper recently left New York for London after Subkoff delivered some news.
She’s pregnant with his child.
“She took several home pregnancy tests,” after he left for London, the source says, and a doctor later confirmed the pregnancy.
Now it’s a matter of figuring out if Hooper knew about the pregnancy prior to the break up. “He broke up with her on Friday, and the last time they spoke was Saturday. He did not know she was pregnant — there was no discussion of her being pregnant,” a source close to Hooper told the rag. “Then he got this voice mail [yesterday] from Tara saying she’s pregnant. He doesn’t know what to do.”
Hooper’s on the hook to begin directing “Les Miserables” for Universal.
“He’s married to his career. He’s just going into production on a huge film. He’s under a tremendous amount of pressure. The timing of this could not be more difficult,” his source stated.
Few pregnancies are planned. Hooper’s life just became more difficult. What do you think she should do?
