Is Dakota Johnson Expecting Her First Child With Chris Martin?

Do Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have a baby on the way?

On Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, TMZ reported that the Hollywood pairing are expecting their first child together — reportedly a baby boy.

According to the gossip rag, Johnson and Martin allegedly held a gender reveal party at the "Fix You" hitmaker's home in Malibu, Calif. on Sunday, Oct. 7, where they released blue balloons into the sky. The star-studded event was attended by the likes of Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, and Johnson's famous mom and dad, veteran actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.

However, it should be noted that the actress' rep has since denied rumors that the actress is expecting, telling the Daily Mail that the couple were actually throwing a party in celebration of Johnson's 29th birthday, which was last Thursday, Oct. 4. At the time of this writing, neither Johnson nor Martin have publicly commented on the pregnancy speculation. 

As Nick Swift previously reported, Johnson and Martin, 41, were first romantically linked in December 2017. At the time, a source cited by Us Weekly said, "Dakota and Chris are definitely dating. They've gotten to know each other really well and are very comfortable from one another. ... It's more than just a fling."

The notoriously private pair have since kept fairly quiet on their blossoming romance. While speaking with the November 2018 issue of Tatler Magazine, Johnson simply said of their relationship, "I'm not going to talk about it. But I am very happy." And really, that's all that matters. 

Interestingly enough, the pregnancy rumors come on the heels of Martin's ex Gwyneth Paltrow's wedding to producer Brad Falchuk. The newlyweds tied the knot in a private ceremony held at the actress' home in the Hamptons on Saturday, Sept. 29. Martin and Paltrow, 46, had eloped in 2003, before divorcing 11 years later. They share two children together: 14-year-old daughter Apple and 12-year-old son Moses.
