Michelle Obama Laughs Off Pregnancy Rumors

Michelle Obama is not pregnant!

For a couple of months after the election and through the inauguration, she was the subject of a lot of pregnancy speculation and First Baby hopes, which she has finally gone on the record about to Oprah.

In the lengthy interview inside April's O Magazine, Oprah asks the First Lady point blank about the state of her supposed baby bump. Several pages into the Q&A and on the heels of a discussion about workouts, Oprah began the following exchange:

O: Well, you look better than ever - despite the rumors that you've got a baby bump.

MO:[Laughter] I know - I was like, "Baby bump? As hard as I work on my abs?!"

O: By the way, nobody would be happier if you were pregnant than Gayle King. Out of nowhere, she'll tell me, "Oh God. I really hope Michelle gets pregnant - and that it's a boy!"

MO: [More laughter] Here's the scoop. Not pregnant. And not planning on it.

O: Not pregnant.

MO: Not pregnant.

Oprah, once again asking the questions only she can get answers to.
