Halle Berry is not pregnant.
In response to reports (including by this publication and others) suggesting that the almost 51-year old actress was expecting her third child, a rep for the star told Page Six on Monday that the rumor “is completely untrue. She is not pregnant.”
Dang! WTG to all of us for reading too much into that hand on the belly protective thing that most pregnant women do.
Also, over the years, in the age of social media, it has become commonplace for celebrities to skip the traditional publicist for relaying baby news and to announce it by rubbing one’s belly during a red carpet event.
As we have blogged before, the hand on the bump has become a universal non-verbal way of announcing a pregnancy.
About three years ago in her late 40s, the Oscar winner welcomed a son, Maceo, with then French husband Olivier Martinez. She has an 8-year old daughter Nahla with ex beau Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.
Ok. Our bad! Carry on. Nothing to see here.
