Chelsea Handler has said that kids aren’t for her, but is she pregnant? The host sparked a bunch of rumors when she decided to post an Instagram photo that may or may not have been captioned in her signature sarcasm.
According to the New York Daily News, Handler decided to post a photo of her dog sitting inside of her car and captioned it with a curious statement. “It’s like a 24 hour watch. He must know I’m pregnant.”
Once that photo and its caption hit the internet, some of Handler’s die hard fans were hitting the former Chelsea Lately host up with freaking out about a possible pregnancy. A few hours passed before Chelsea let her fans know what was up with the caption.

Handler cleared the air the only way she knew how, through biting sarcasm.
The last time I was pregnant was in this picture. Wake up, people. I would never do that to a baby. http://t.co/98ByJuvYCX

Despite Handler clearing up the news, some are going with a different angle on this story. One of those angles is that she’s pregnant with ex boyfriend 50 Cent’s child.

This is highly unlikely considering the two are no longer dating. Also, here’s what Handler had to say about having children in an interview with Amanda de Cadenet.
“I don’t think I’d be a great mother. I don’t want to have a kid and have it raised by a nanny. I don’t have the time to raise a child. Childhood was heartbreaking enough for anybody. I don’t know that I could handle my own child, especially if I had a girl, going through what I went through growing up. Not that it was so traumatic, but in many ways, it was in your own way.”
In a 2010 interview, the host discussed MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, and brought up the subject of kids. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
