'The Only Thing I'm Pregnant with is a Lot of Really Good Ideas:' The Celeb Guide to Ending Pregnancy Speculation

After false reports claimed she was expecting a baby with boyfriend Chris Martin, Dakota Johnson set the record straight on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “The only thing I’m pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas. But not any babies,” she said. The Suspiria star went on to explain that the rumors had started because of the presence of pink and blue balloons at her birthday party. “It was my birthday, and there were balloons that happened to be pink and blue and so then I was pregnant,” she joked. “[I got] a lot of attention. More than just having it being my birthday!”

Ashley Graham was quick to respond to a user who commented on the star’s Instagram photo, which showcased the model’s belly. “Good morning … Ashley!! Looking good … Baby bump … :))),” read the comment. Graham flawlessly replied, “That’s just called fat.”

Shortly after fans found out Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer had wed in a surprise ceremony, the I Feel Pretty star made it a point to address her big day while simultaneously putting all those pregnancy rumors to rest. “No I am not pregnant,” she wrote on Instagram.

But that wasn’t the first time the comedian sparked pregnancy rumors. While attempting to tip off fans that she and stylist Leesa Evans are launching a clothing line together, fans paid extra close attention to her pose — it appeared to some that the star was pointing at a baby bump — which prompted Schumer to post a follow-up video to address the claims. 

“I am not pregnant. I am… not pregnant,” Schumer said as she sips what looks like an alcoholic beverage. “It looked like I was pointing to a bump or something but I’m not. Leesa Evans and I have created a clothing line for all sizes and shapes and at a chill price point. That’s what I was trying to allude to but thank you for thinking of my womb.”

Over Memorial Day Weekend in 2018, photos of Lili Reinhart circulated on social media — with fans wondering whether the Riverdale star might be expecting. That’s when Reinhart took matters into her own hands. “It’s unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I’m pregnant,” she wrote on Instagram. “Nope. Not pregnant.”

Reinhart continued, “This is just my body. And sometimes I’m bloated. Sometimes and unflattering photo is taken of me. Sometimes I go through periods of time where I gain weight.”

“My body is something that I will NEVER apologize for,” Reinhart added. “My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that’s fine. So let’s not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger’s figure.”

In a 2018 interview with Glamour, the Oscar winner admitted to having been body-shamed in the past and feeling like “there’s a storm to get ahead of.” So instead of dealing with the speculation and questions as she embarked on a press tour for her role in Ocean’s 8, Hathaway explained her body changes in an Instagram post on April 5.

“I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well. To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it’s not me, it’s you,” wrote Hathaway, who’s been subjected to pregnancy rumors in the past.

Pregnancy rumors started swirling after Halle Berry stepped out in a formfitting sequined dress in June 2017, but the actress was quick to point out that if she had anything in her belly, it was simply a food baby. “Can a girl have some steak and fries??” she captioned a cheeky Instagram photo, accompanied by a winking emoji. Yes you can, Halle; treat yourself.

Jennifer Aniston used the power of the pen to slam pregnancy rumors and the incessant scrutiny of her body. “For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up,” the actress wrote in a scathing essay titled “For the Record” posted on The Huffington Post. “This past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status,” she continued. “The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.”

When rumors started circulating that Jessica Biel was pregnant with baby #2 … she called hubby Justin Timberlake just to make certain she wasn’t, she told Ellen DeGeneres. “I heard that and I called Justin. I was like, ‘Are we [having another baby]? No. Oh, okay, cool,” she joked. “He usually knows more than I do about everything.”

Nicki Minaj doesn’t simply shoot down baby rumors – she reminds you where babies come from. (And reminds you of her real name, which is always a surprise.) “No matter wut he, or anyone else says, Onika Tanya Maraj won’t b pushing anyone1 out her vajayjay, until she’s married. Now check that,” the rapper Tweeted, shutting down buzz that she was pregnant with then-boyfriend Meek Mill‘s baby.

“I’m getting a little older and many people think I’m pregnant but I tell them, ‘I’m just almost f––– 30,’ ” Lady Gaga told the crowds at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. That’s right – women can age without being pregnant. Gasp.

In light of rumors that Kylie Jenner was eight months pregnant, the reality star took to Twitter to shut the whole thing down in 140 characters (or less). “People been thinking I’m pregnant for 8 months now … CLEARLY I’m not pregnant!” Basic logic: Pregnancy can’t last forever.

“No I’m not pregnant.” Kim Kardashian West kept it simple and angry in her four-word Tweet, which ended in that passive aggressive period. (Five months later, though, she was happy to share some big news.)

He’s one of the most powerful men in Hollywood – of course he’s to blame. “I bet Ryan Seacrest started the rumor,” Giuliana Rancic said in 2008 when pregnancy buzz began. “And now when I do get pregnant, no one will care.”

“I’m here to clear the rumors up. The truth is that it’s not Beyoncé that’s pregnant. It’s me,” Tina Knowles told Ellen DeGeneres in 2010 (long before Blue Ivy’s arrival), addressing reports that her daughter and Jay Z were expecting. “I’m kidding y’all. With all the rumors, by now I should have five or six grandchildren.”

“I used to get offended, like ‘Do I look fat today?’ or ‘Why are they saying that?’ But they just say it,” Khloé Kardashian lamented in 2014. “Before I was like, ‘Do I have a baby bump? Is my belly sticking out?’ But no.”

The idea that Justin Bieber got both Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez pregnant was so absurd that all Cyrus had to do was post a tabloid cover of her and Gomez and its sensationalist headline, “PREGNANT BY THE SAME MAN,” to expose the ridiculousness of the rumor. (Her caption: “And by the same man we mean @justinbieber.”)
