- Dakota Johnson appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday to discuss the reports that she’s expecting a baby with boyfriend Chris Martin.
- The speculation took off after TMZ reported that the actress had a gender-reveal party on Sunday, since pink and blue balloons were seen in the sky.
- Johnson said her 29th birthday party included balloon arches, which probably got loose.
- She added that, as a result of the misunderstanding, “a lot of people congratulated” her and she “got a lot of attention, more than it just being my birthday.”
On Monday, TMZ shared photos from the festivities, which showed pink and blue balloons released in the sky. The publication suggested that the celebration was a gender-reveal party for a baby she’s expecting with boyfriend Chris Martin. A representative for Johnson later denied the report.
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, the actress offered an explanation for why she thinks people were quick to jump to conclusions.
“Well, the only thing I’m pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas. But not any babies,” Johnson began. “It was my birthday and there were balloons that happened to be pink and blue, and so then I was pregnant?”
The “Bad Times at the El Royale” star went on to say that she “didn’t know that the balloons were going to be released.”
“They were just in an arch,” she said. “But I guess that accidentally happened – one of the ends just got let go.”
Johnson said that, as a result of the misunderstanding, “a lot of people congratulated” her and she “got a lot of attention, more than it just being my birthday.”
The actress added that she also ended up facing questions from several people who asked why they weren’t invited to her party.
