Lizzo recently joked about being pregnant with Chris Evans baby in a TikTok where she pretends to show off a baby bump.

The video, complete with the Captain America theme playing in the background, features Lizzo responding to a fan comment that read, “lizzo baby….we know your 🤰 and we know it’s Chris Evans now spill the tea ☕” [sic].
“This is something I’m really trying to keep personal and private, just between me and the father of the child, but since we’re airing out all the rumors today,” begins Lizzo, stepping back to show her stomach in profile, “I’ve been sucking in. We’re gonna have a little America!”
Lizzo, who slid into Evans’ DMs earlier this year, has been sharing snippets of their back-and-forth with fans online.
Among these shared messages is now Chris Evans’ response to the faux pregnancy. “Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy,” wrote Evans in an Instagram DM, along with a laughter emoji. “My mother will be so happy lol. (Just promise me no gender reveal parties lol).”
In the caption of the follow-up TikTok where Lizzo showed this screenshot, the singer-songwriter wrote “OMG YALL— HE SAW THE BABY BUMP! WE DID IT! NOW YALL GOTTA NAME LIL MERICA!!!!! WHAT YALL BOUTA NAME MY BABY ?! 🤰🏾🇺🇸”

Astute fans also noticed that the video featured what appeared to be a clip of a new upcoming single, in which Lizzo can be heard declaring “All the rumors are true” with a gospel-choir backing fading in at the end.
Just a day later, Lizzo confirmed fans’ suspicions with yet another TikTok in which she announced her new song Rumors, apparently featuring Meghan Thee Stallion, will be coming out on August 13th.
