Pregnant percula clownfish?

We've had this pair for about 4-5 months & I noticed the bigger one is getting a bit of a gut. It's hard to get good photos of it but will keep trying. Could it possibly be pregnant?Click image for larger version

No they lay eggs and then the male externally fertilizes them. If they start cleaning a rock off then try will breed.

She just looks chunky but check in the next few days to see if they start clearing a spot. She could be gravid.
