Earlier this week, rumors began swirling that Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin were having a baby together. The evidence came from a party thrown at Martin’s house over the weekend, which included baby blue and pink balloons as decorations. One lucky paparazzo captured some of the balloons flying away, leading many to believe the couple was having some kind of sex reveal party.
But this isn’t the case. Reps for the actress said the shindig was just for her 29th birthday. And now Johnson herself is commenting on the rumors: “Well, the only thing I’m pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas. But not any babies,” she said when asked about it on Ellen on Thursday. “It was my birthday and there were balloons that happened to be pink and blue, and so then I was pregnant. I didn’t know that the balloons were gonna be released. They were just in an arch, but I guess that accidentally happened, one of the ends just got let go. A lot of people congratulated me. A lot of attention! More than just having it be my birthday.”
There was a silly downside to Johnson’s birthday-becoming-headline news, though: She now has to deal with facing the wrath of everyone she didn’t invite. “Now I had to be like, It was just my birthday,” she said, “and all of the people I didn’t invite to my birthday know I had a birthday party.”
“I’m not going to talk about it, but I am very happy,” Johnson told Tatler a few weeks ago when magazine when asked about her relationship with Martin.
