Kate Winslet sparked pregnancy rumors after photos of the “Titanic” star sharing some “exciting news” with friends during the 88th Academy Awards ceremony Sunday night surfaced. Reports said that Winslet may soon welcome a fourth child as photos showed Cate Blanchett placing her hand on the 40-year-old’s stomach.
Winslet was reportedly seen chatting with Blanchett and Brie Larson. The three were pictured smiling as Winslet talked to them. The "Today" show reported that Blanchett “had an ecstatically surprised reaction on her face while touching Winslet’s stomach.”
“Blanchett’s reaction had some wondering if Winslet, who is a mother of three children ranging in age from 2 to 15, is ready to welcome her fourth child,” the “Today” show’s website reported, according to Gossip Cop.
As the photos surfaced, social media users reacted to the news, but Gossip Cop debunked the reports saying that the actress is not having a baby.
TMZ reported, citing a source, that Winslet "is not pregnant" and was simply "showing off the material on her dress" to her friends.
Winslet has three children, Mia Honey Threapleton, 15, Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, 12, and Bear Blaze Winslet, 2.
Here are some social media reactions.
