Halle Berry set social media ablaze with pregnancy rumors by cradling her belly on the red carpet, but according to her rep, the Oscar winner isn’t expecting.
“It is completely untrue. She is not pregnant,” the rep confirmed in a statement to Page Six Monday, June 5.
The 50-year-old actress appeared at the 16th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball Saturday, June 3, in support of an organization that provides job-readiness training and her usually toned tummy was noticeably bigger.
Berry fueled rumors by posing for several shots with her hands on her stomach, a pose Beyoncé struck before rubbing her belly onstage at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards when she announced she was pregnant with her first child.
Berry already has two young children: 9-year-old Nahla Aubry and 3-year-old Maceo Martinez, whose fathers are model Gabriel Aubry and director Olivier Martinez, respectively.
Social media users reacted with prematurely congratulatory messages.

They also wondered who the father could be. Berry was linked to rapper Chris Webby in 2016 and the blog Sandra Rose reported she was photographed leaving a restaurant with a mystery man last month.
