Ever since Fox’s “The Masked Singer” premiered earlier this month, fans have been trying to figure out which celebrities are actually underneath those elaborate costumes.

The new competition series features masked celebrities whose identities remain hidden until they’re booted from the show.

Each competitor is given a nickname based on their costumes, such as the Deer, the Monster, the Alien, and the Unicorn.

There’s been a lot of speculation as which celebrities are actually competing, but fans now think they have one singer, the Lion, figured out, Hollywood Life reports.

A Twitter thread speculates the Lion is actually country star Carrie Underwood. The fan points to one big clue — her baby bump.

According to the fan, the show was filmed in part over the summer, when Underwood’s bump would have been smaller and easier to hide.

The gold piece of cloth covering the Lion’s stomach was allegedly added in a final iteration of the costume design.

The Twitter user wrote:

The golden warrior resembling chest accessory was modified in the final #LionMask design I’m assuming to assure that @carrieunderwood would still be able to comfortably fit in it during the @MaskedSingerFOX panel that was scheduled for August 2nd (~ 3 months pregnant)

The show team may have also been dropping hints as to the Lion’s identity in social media posts, the fan claimed.

They wrote:

Then this old #LionMask hint from Instagram makes itself useful because the caption “The Lioness is hungry” can be referring to Carrie’s pregnancy cravings and can also be used to infer that the golden cloth was added there with the purpose to hide Carrie’s future baby bump.

Despite the fans detailed sleuthing, some are discrediting the theory because the lion is supposed to be 5’6, while Underwood is only 5’3.

Vulture predicts that Rumer Willis, daughter of actor Bruce Willis, is the identity behind the Lion.

She actually fits the height requirement and descends from “Hollywood royalty” as the Lion claims to be.

Sadly, fans won’t get to find out the Lion’s true identity until it’s revealed on the show. Until then, fans on social media will likely continue to run wild with theories.

Who do you think the Lion is? Let us know in the comments.

    It makes Perfect sense that it’s Carrie since she is a Born Again Christian and the Bible states JESUS is THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.
