Is Blake Lively Pregnant? Nope -- And Neither Are These Other Celebs

A rep for the actress said the baby rumors are "100 percent false." But that doesn't mean people will stop speculating!

Just the other day, the world learned that newlyweds Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds will soon welcome a bundle of joy. Hurray!  

"It's pretty obvious Blake is expecting a baby," an "insider close to the situation" told Perez Hilton. "We’re convinced she’s just waiting to pass the first trimester before she makes an official announcement. Blake’s usually a size 2 or 4 and loves to show off her body in fitted clothes, but now she is going for looser, more draped fits." This was terrific news -- except for the fact that, according to Lively's publicist, it was "100 percent false." 

But misinformation about an A-lister's potential pregnancy isn't anything new. Here are some recent examples of stars whose baby bumps turned out to be… not baby bumps.

"Blue Ivy
's gonna be a big sis!" declared E! News on May 17. Though the site claimed that "multiple sources exclusively confirmed" the news, they turned out to be dead wrong. “That’s probably the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard," her husband Jay-Z said on a radio show earlier this month. "And the fact that people were really like running with that and running up with it and had follow-up stories. … At first I thought it was one of those ‘get press’ things. … Then I was slowly like, ‘Y’all believe this!’” 

Jennifer Aniston
If the press stories were all true, this actress would have about 20 kids by now. With each new beau she takes on -- and there have been quite a few -- some reporter somewhere suggests that a baby's on the way. As recently as this year's Oscars, commentators were wondering if she would reveal her baby bump on the red carpet. Guess what? It didn't happen.

Apparently, a girl can't even cancel a few concert dates without the world assuming she's knocked up! That's what happened to Rihanna in April when she missed several dates on her Diamonds World Tour. Rumors continued on and off for weeks, even after E! News debunked the story.

Jennifer Garner
She already has three children, but speculation mounts that the actress is carrying Baby Number Four. In May, photographers snapped her on her way into her doctor's office. "Is she or isn't she?" reporters, including iVillage, wondered. "She totally is, right?!" wrote Hilton, just yesterday. Well, maybe.

As for Lively and Reynolds, when a baby does arrive, we'll be the first to congratulate them! (But not before.)
