This past weekend, Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson threw a party at his Malibu home, and the photos and videos of the event show arches of pink and blue balloons decorating the property as their celebrity friends arrived. Could it be a gender reveal party? Does this mean Martin and Johnson are expecting a baby?
Celebrities like Sean Penn and Julia Roberts showed up for the party, as well as Johnson’s parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. Then, just a few minutes after Dakota’s parents arrived, someone released a string of blue balloons into the sky.

Obviously, this sent the baby rumors into overdrive. But, a rep for the Fifty Shades of Grey star says that the actress is not pregnant, and this was a birthday party for Johnson, who turned 29 on October 4th.
According to People Magazine, the rep did not explain the pink and blue balloons.
Martin’s ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow married American Horror Story producer Brad Falchuk just one week before Martin and Johnson’s party, but they didn’t attend the ceremony because the Coldplay frontman was performing at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City. Johnson was there with him, and when she walked onstage, she was wearing a baggy outfit and overcoat, which makes sense if she was trying to hide a baby bump.
However, Johnson is shutting down the baby rumors. But, when you claim to have a birthday party for a 29-year-old with pink and blue balloons, something doesn’t seem right.
Johnson and Martin first sparked dating rumors in October 2017 after they were spotted on a sushi date in Los Angeles, and ever since, then they have appeared to get more serious. Neither of them has confirmed the relationship, but they have gone on public dates, including one with former Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren.

In a recent interview, Johnson did say that she was “very happy,” but she wasn’t going to talk about her personal life. And, an insider has said that Johnson loves spending time with Martin at his home in Malibu, and they also enjoy going to the beach together and walking around the neighborhood.
The couple prefers a quiet life, but they do occasionally go out for dinner with friends or have people over at home.
Chris Martin and Paltrow were married for ten years and had two kids together — Apple, 14, and Moses, 12 — before they split in 2014. As for Dakota Johnson, she had a relationship with model Matthew Hitt.
