Congratulations are apparently not in order for Coldplay’s Chris Martin and his girlfriend “Fifty Shades” actress Dakota Johnson.

The blue balloons were later released into the sky, leading to speculation they were having a boy.

A better lie would be that it was a gender reveal party for her friend who is pregnant.

Bruno Mars celebrated his 33rd birthday by posting a video of him enjoying some birthday treats with none other than Ed Sheeran serenading him.
