Alyson Hannigan Wrongfully Accused of Being Pregnant

After Much Speculation, Alyson Hannigan's Pregnancy Turns Out to Be Too Much Chili

How I Met Your Mother actress Alyson Hannigan is not going to be a mother again — at least not yet. Hannigan was photographed hitting the Malibu Chili Cook Off and carnival with husband Alexis Denisof and Satyana, their 2-year-old daughter, and her loose-fitting top made it appear like she was showing off a little baby bump (see photo here on It prompted some pregnancy speculation over the weekend to which Alyson tweeted in response,

"NO, I'm not pregnant! I just ate too much carnival food, that time of the month, hurt my back & couldn't suck my gut in, & need 2 do cardio!"

Alyson was a great sport about it, saying, "I do look pregnant in that photo!" But it seems the media was quick to point a finger at her belly. Sometimes we indulge a little, take time off from exercise, and we end up with a little weight gain. It happens to the best of us, even celebs. Why Us Weekly might not call out your belly, I am curious . . .

When I go to the gym, I wear a sports bra and shorts. I won't lie to you, I have a lot of stomach problems so I can look VERY BLOATED... but would I rather wear a shirt and sweat so much I could fill up a swimming pool or wear no shirt and deal with the fact that people can see me bloated... the latter is what I do... So ANYWAYS: I was working out one day and this WEIGHT TRAINER OF ALL PEOPLE comes up to me and ASKS ME WHEN I AM DUE! I was in complete and utter shock (as I am a very small girl who looks about 15/16 years old) and just told him that it's a sensitive subject. At first I laughed so hard cause he was so completely wrong but then I was hurt because well, I have been suffering from intense stomach problems for quite some time and believe there is NO CURE for me. I am over it now, and really just laugh at that... plus a lot of other trainers I have spoken to about this episode said that that was VERY POOR ETIQUETTE and he should be terminated from being a PT, but I just wish I could figure out why my stomach bloats so much! I really miss my six pack - it's STILL THERE just the bloat is in the way!

Yes, and that was when I was about 10 pounds lighter. It ruined my week. I now have instated a policy: Unless a baby is coming out from between someone's legs at that moment, I do not ask any woman if she is expecting!

Just last week I saw a friend I hadn't seen in a year and she asked if I was pregnant. I was wearing an empire waist maxi dress and she said I didn't look heavier, just that the dress made it look like I was hiding something. I was so offended!

Unfortunately it's happened a few times due to my very apple-like shape.

They probably only jumped to conclusions because she's normally so very very tiny. It's ridiculous in this culture that celebrities are required to be so skinny that if they so much as miss a bowel movement, they "look pregnant".
