Wondrous Beauty: The Life and Adventures of Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte by Carol Berkin p. 39

"If Jerome's thoughts turned frequently during their long voyage to his first meeting with the emperor, Betsy's may have been on more intimate concerns. She was six months pregnant, and there would soon be a new Bonaparte in the emperor's family."

Jerome Bonaparte and his new wife, Elizabeth, are heading to Europe for Jerome to try to make up with his big brother, Napoleon, who was very angered by the marriage.

If he disapproves of the marriage it doesn't bode well that she's pregnant either.
