Pregnant Olivia Munn covers her bump in a flannel amid fan speculation about John Mulaney timeline

Expecting mom Olivia Munn was spotted out wearing a baggy flannel weeks before news of her pregnancy was confirmed by beau John Mulaney. 

In photos obtained by DailyMail.com from August 23, the 41-year-old actress was seen concealing her now prominent baby bump while grabbing takeout in LA.  

The Newsroom star told Access Daily this week that she’s ‘feeling really good’ amid her pregnancy, but fans have begun to question her relationship timeline with the 39-year-old comedian.

In the images, Olivia looked to go to great lengths to hide her baby news as she donned a large red flannel and baggy green cargo pants. 

She was seen carrying a large Goyard tote and wore a pair of Birkenstock sandals while glued to her phone as she exited a parking garage. 

Munn was later seen emerging with a bag of takeout and she seemed to swap her original tote bag for a much larger one which she used to shield her stomach.

At one point she was pictured running her hand over the front of her belly while the shirt gathered a bit around her bump.

Fan-driven speculation that she was pregnant first began when images of Olivia wearing a baggy sweatshirt and sweatpants surfaced, sending twitter into a frenzy. 

Days later, Mulaney confirmed the pair’s baby bliss during a September 7 appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.   

‘I got into this relationship that’s been really beautiful with someone incredible. And we’re having a baby together. I was nervous when I was about to say the news!’

‘I’m gonna be a dad. I’m… we’re both really, really happy,’ he continued to say. 

With the cat out of the bag, Olivia spoke on the pair’s news and preparing for motherhood in conversation with Mario Lopez.

‘There’s been a big ‘ol mom tribe that comes up. I’ve heard about it, but they really come up in full force. There’s a really great dad tribe too. Everyone who comes up is really supportive and it means so much to me,’ she said. 

Asked if she would be finding out the sex of the baby she confessed that she may want to keep it a ‘surprise’ after Lopez said he waited to find out the sex of his three children. 

‘I haven’t decided if I’ll find out yet or not but I’ll take that to heart. It’s a good surprise to find out; there’s very few surprises in life.’

And she also spoke about her two dogs, Chance and Frankie, not knowing ‘what’s happening’ in regards to her pregnancy, despite it being said that they can detect those sorts of things based on hormonal changes. 

‘People tell me that your dogs can pick up on those kinds of things but they’ve been walking over my stomach. They don’t care. They have no idea what’s happening.’ 

In Mulaney’s on-air announcement, it was noticed that he seemed to go into great detail about the purported ‘timeline’ of the pair’s relationship — which was in full force three months after he filed to divorce wife of seven years, Anna Marie Tendler, in February. 

‘I went to rehab in September, I got out in October, I moved out of my home from my ex-wife. Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia,’ Mulaney claimed. 

He also sang her praises in regards to helping him with sobriety as he said: ‘She’s kind of held my hand through that hell,’ and later added: ‘Olivia and this baby have helped save me from myself.’ 

Crossing paths: The pair first connected in May 2013 and had crossed paths on several occasions

After the announcement however, a celebrity agent who had worked with Munn told Page Six: ‘It seems to me that he is going to great lengths to dispute the idea that he cheated.’ 

‘I don’t think it’s any coincidence that John broke the news of Olivia’s pregnancy the way he did in terms of basically giving a timeline of his past few months.’

It was noted: ‘It isn’t entirely clear when their relationship started. There have been rumors for months about her being pregnant, and it all just seems like a very tight timeline.’ 

A source close to Tendler also told the publication that she ‘knew he was doing things with other women before he went to rehab in December,’ as ‘he was DM’ing women on Instagram for hookups.’  

And when he filed to divorce her in February the artist said in a statement: ‘I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.’

On May 10, PEOPLE first reported that Mulaney and Munn were an item, and said that the pair ‘met in church’ — a claim which has now been disputed as ‘BS.’  

In a May 29 TikTok video from user Celebrity Memoir Book Club — two New York based comedians —  it was alleged that it was known in the comedy circle that Munn was pregnant.  

In June Us Weekly reported that Olivia was ‘so smitten’ with John and that she was ‘on cloud nine.’ 

And reportedly both Munn and Mulaney’s friends were ‘talking openly about her pregnancy in July.’ 

The pair had first met back in 2013 at Seth’s wedding where she was the guest of fellow SNL star Will Forte (her then-boyfriend) and two years later they crossed paths again at another wedding.

Munn confessed in a HuffPost Live to following Mulaney and Tendler around there. ‘I was just so obsessed with hanging out with and talking with him,’ she said.

And The Predator actress also added that she sent him an email afterwards but never heard back. ‘I might’ve got the wrong email — probably. That’s what I tell myself.’ 

In November 2017, the pair were seen on camera together at Jon Stewart’s HBO special Night of Too Many Stars, where she shot a very flirty ‘Hi John’ at him on camera.  

And during his stint in rehab for cocaine and alcohol she tweeted in support of him. ‘Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this.’
