The actress, 35, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, January 27. The 35-year-old talked about recent rumors claiming that she is set to marry the Green Bay Packers quarterback, 32.
“We’re not engaged,” Munn told Ellen. “Not engaged.”
“How did something like that get started?” the talk show host, 57, asked the actress.
“It was just a magazine that said it,” she said. “And then everybody started going with it. It was kind of strange. I mean, I didn’t think anybody believed it until like my family started texting me. My sister said, ‘this is so stupid. Why would anybody think that something like… You’re not engaged, it’s so stupid.’ And then the next text after that was, ‘but seriously are you engaged because like I’m seeing it everywhere?’ and no, we’re not engaged.”
“So your mother obviously didn’t believe it…” the comedian added.
“She did believe it, but now I was able to correct her and she knows for sure that it’s not… as soon as I say no it’s not true she believes it,” Olivia explained.
This isn’t the first time that the Ride Along 2 actress shot down speculation that her boyfriend asked her to marry him, as she addressed those rumors a few days ago on Instagram.
“Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say ‘No’ it means whenever you say ‘No comment’ that kind of becomes your default ‘Yes’. But since I’m doing press for the next few days, I didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I’m going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out.✌️#Colberto,” she wrote after sharing a text conversation with her mother.
