Pregnant Platy? or just fat?

We have one female platy in our tank and used to have two males but they have been gone for a couple months but now the female looks pregnant? is this possible? Here is a picture ....

I've looked up signs of pregnancy and she shows a few of them but since we have not had any males in so long I do not know if she could actually be pregnant or just fat.

Thanks for any help.

Yeah she's definately pregnant. Livebearers can actually store sperm for longer than one pregnancy.
