Lindsay Shookus is not pregnant. She wasn’t expecting when RadarOnline claimed Shookus had a “baby bump” last week, and she still doesn’t have a “bun in the oven” now, despite the site’s sister outlet, the National Enquirer, announcing a “baby shocker” for Ben Affleck. Gossip Cop can bust these false allegations for the second time.

According to the current issue of the supermarket tabloid, Affleck “could be a daddy again” as Shookus “can no longer hide her apparent baby bump.” A so-called “source” claims to the gossip magazine, “It wasn’t exactly planned, but they’re thrilled! Ben is starting over with Lindsay and he’s eager for them to have their own family now.”

Shookus, who has a daughter with her estranged husband, “always wanted a second child and she’s crazy about Ben,” the outlet’s supposed snitch goes on to allege, adding, “They know people will think it’s too soon, but they don’t care. They’re madly in love and feel ready for this!” And while the purported tipster predicts Affleck’s estranged wife Jennifer Garner will “hit the roof” when she finds out, the publication cites a doctor who guesses based on a paparazzi photo that Shookus is four to five months pregnant.

So, the tabloid wants readers to believe Shookus could already be halfway through this pregnancy, yet Affleck hasn’t told Garner, to whom he’s still legally wed. And the magazine also wants people to believe that the “SNL” producer is walking around with this big bump, yet claims of a pregnancy have largely been limited to RadarOnline, as mentioned above, and fellow sister publication OK!, which falsely alleged Shookus was pregnant more than two months ago. In each instance, Gossip Cop has been assured that she is not expecting, and the fertile imaginations of gossip writers are simply running wild. Should something change down the line, we’ll have the real news, but don’t go buying a baby gift just yet.
