Is Platy pregnant?

Hi all,

Please see the photos of one of my platys below. She is huge compared to the other 2 and I've got my suspicions she's pregnant.

I've been looking for the signs of her "squaring off" etc.

What's everyone's thoughts? Pregnant or just a greedy girl?

I was just taking it on the advice of the aquarium shop, happier if it's a male though!!
