We have an official confirmation by the royal house that Prince Ali and Princess Rym had a baby-boy on March 19th 2007.
I am positive that it was a birth announcement and not an adoption.
They always announce the births of their own biological children and don't announce an adoption so officially.
Lots of Jordanian Royals adopted children (f.e. King Hussein and Queen Alia and also Princess Zein and her husband have an adopted daughter) and they have always been open about that fact. It is wellknown.
Sometimes pregnancy is not very visible (and sometimes women get full-born children without even knowing themselves that they were pregnant).
I don't say that that is the case of Princess Rym but on a picture of July 2005 ( in a light-blue dress)she did not look so pregnant either and Jalila was born on September 16th 2005
I know from jordanian friends that there were rumors in Jordan that Princess Rym and Princess Noor were/are pregnant.
There was never an official announcement of their pregnancies.
