Lea Michele has laughed off speculation she's expecting her first child, insisting the rumour is false.
The Glee actress sent gossips into overdrive after she was photographed apparently hiding her bulging tummy behind a large black handbag on a shopping trip over the weekend (20-21Oct12).
Now Michele, who is dating her Glee co-star Cory Monteith, has shot down the reports by joking she has now joined the legions of A-listers who have sparked phoney pregnancy rumours.
Taking to her Twitter.com page to set the record straight, she writes, "My first fake pregnancy rumor! I've finally made it!"
