Only a few days after Dakota Johnson finally acknowledged her almost one-year-long relationship with Chris Martin, the pair has become the subject of rumors that they're expecting their first child together.
On Sunday afternoon, according to TMZ, Martin appeared to be hosting a party in his backyard. The star-studded guest list reportedly included Johnson's parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Sean Penn, and Julia Roberts, among others. Perhaps most telling of all were the massive pink and blue balloon arches that reached high above Martin's hedges. At one point during the party, as seen in paparazzi photos taken near the house, the blue arch appeared to come undone and shot straight up into the sky; though TMZ concludes that that must signify some sort of dramatic gender reveal, it seems much more likely that the balloon arch simply came untied.
In a statement to People on Monday, however, Johnson's rep denied the reports, claiming that the party was actually a birthday celebration for the Fifty Shades star, who turned 29 on October 4.
Meanwhile, the Coldplay frontman is already father to 14-year-old daughter Apple and 12-year-old son Moses with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, who has continued to praise Martin's parenting skills in the years since their split. On Father's Day this year, she posted a photo of her ex with their two children, calling him "a ray of sunshine." And in honor of the same holiday in 2015, she shared another photo of Martin with Apple, toasting him with, "Here is to all the engaged and present fathers, you create a backbone for society."
Johnson and Martin have been dating since last fall, when they were first spotted spending time together during a dinner date in Los Angeles, and then, shortly after, at a Coldplay concert in Argentina. Since then, they've traveled all over the world together, attended Hollywood parties as each other's plus-ones, and, sometime in the last month or two, apparently got matching infinity symbol tattoos.
Though the pair have stayed remarkably tight-lipped about the status of their relationship, Johnson did finally seem to at least confirm that it's a thing in her cover interview for the November 2018 issue of Tatler. "I'm not going to talk about it, but I am very happy," she admitted. At this rate, even if Johnson and Martin were expecting, we probably would have no idea until we actually saw a baby.
