No, Lea Michele is not pregnant.
The 27-year-old was the second Glee star to have their Twitter account hacked in the past few days.
“Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy,” read a message posted on her Twitter account Friday.
No one really believed the tweet was true after Glee star Chris Colfer’s account was also hacked the day before with a tweet that said he had been fired from the popular FOX show. The show’s producers said Colfer was the victim of a hacker.
“We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked,” according to a statement from 20th Century Fox Television. “Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”
The Glee costars quipped about it with each other once they gained control of their accounts once again.
I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then to make our passwords the names of our cats:)

Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the Fox TV series, has been spotted out and about with her new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz. The new couple, who met earlier this year while filming her music video for On My Way, from her 2014 debut album, Louder, were seen picnicking together recently in L.A.

Paetz is the first person Michele has dated since losing Cory Monteith in 2013 to a heroin overdose. “She waited a long time before getting serious again and she likes him a lot,” a source revealed to E! News.
“He treats her really well, he’s smart and fun. She’s really happy,” said the source.
So good to see a smile back on Michele’s face.
