Funnyman Jason Sudeikis was only joking when he suggested he was about to become a father at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night - according to his publicist.
The Saturday Night Live comedian was nearing the end of his hosting stint at the annual awards ceremony when, during a skit with his Horrible Bosses co-stars Charlie Day and Jason Bateman, he blurted out, "Look, I have a lot of pressure on me. I've 10 minutes left of the show, I might be a dad soon..."
Day was so taken aback, he said, "What...? I'm tweeting it... You're gonna be a dad?"
But the comic's representative insists Sudeikis was only joking.
He split from Mad Men star January Jones earlier this year just before she announced she was pregnant.
Bloggers speculated the father was Sudeikis, but neither of the former lovers have confirmed or denied the rumours and Jones still has everyone guessing who the father of her baby is.
