Julia Roberts learned she was pregnant on Ellen... as part of a joke that was meant to prove that Roberts is actually not pregnant. On Dec. 20, The National Ledger reported that Roberts joked with Ellen about her "rumored" pregnancy, successfully debunking the rumors that were started after the actress was spotted with a "baby bump."
"Somebody get my husband on the phone! This is no way for him to find out! I'm not pregnant. Half the people in the audience are like… is that true?" Julia said, laughing with Ellen. It's great that she's got a sense of humor about the whole thing!
Roberts isn't pregnant but Ellen had to bring it up because it was a rumor that just wouldn't die. Ellen started by joking to Julia Roberts about how her marriage has been in the tabloids lately. At the beginning of the interview (which translated into Roberts co-hosting the show with Ellen), DeGeneres looked at Roberts and said something to the effect of, "Portia and I are having marital problems, apparently." Roberts laughed and then Ellen turned the focus to her non-existent pregnancy. And that was that.
Julia Roberts isn't pregnant with her fourth child and it doesn't sound like she's planning on adding any more to her brood.
Leave it to Ellen to put the Julia Roberts' pregnant rumor to rest!
