Ashlee Simpson is keeping coy when it comes to those persistent pregnancy rumors.
The 23-year-old singer – who’s newly engaged to Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz – tried her best to avoid answering the question during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. (The episode is set to air today….April 24th.)
When asked directly, “Are you or are you not pregnant?” Ashlee demurred: “Well, that has been going on for quite a while. That is something that I choose personally not to discuss.”
She then skillfully changed the subject. “Do I look like I had 10 cheeseburgers or something?” she asked the audience, standing up to show her still-slim figure. “Because I don’t think I do.”
Ellen DeGeneres then asked Ashlee to promise that if she is pregnant, she doesn’t keep fans in suspense as long as Jennifer Lopez did.
“I swear,” Ashlee responded. “I promise you that. I give you my pinky on that.” (The two then shared a quick pinky-swear.)
Ellen DeGeneres gave it one last shot, asking quickly, “Is it a boy or a girl?” But Ashlee could not be tempted.
“Ah,” she said with a laugh. “You’re funny.”
