John Mulaney’s pregnant girlfriend wants us to know that they’re still together

John Mulaney’s pregnant girlfriend gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight this week. It’s almost as if she knew she was going to do some promotional media and it was a “happy accident” that everyone was talking about the state of her relationship with Mulaney over the weekend. Anyway, ET asked her about her pregnancy and relationship and this is how ET reported it:

“Justine and I had a long conversation about this the other day, honestly, I’m just excited about meeting whoever it is, and bringing a little person into this world,” she says.

Over the weekend, Munn and Mulaney’s names were trending on social media after rumors that the two have split. However, ET has learned that reports of a split are not true.

[From ET]

I swear to God, there is no point in being this f–king coy. She’s literally sitting right there, giving an interview. She clearly said “off the record, we didn’t break up” and ET just ran it as “ET has learned that reports of a split are not true.”

“Insiders” and “sources” have been busy this week, talking to other outlets as well. John Mulaney’s pregnant girlfriend also seemingly went to her favorite outlet, Us Weekly, to praise herself for being such a feminist iconoclast. (The reason why I know Us Weekly is her favorite outlet is that over the years, she’s gone there to sh-t talk her exes and hookups, like when she spilled all about her affair with Justin Timberlake.)

Doing things her way. Olivia Munn had motherhood on the brain before she started seeing John Mulaney, a source tells Us Weekly.

“Becoming a mom was always more important to her than settling down in a conventional way,” the insider says. “She’s a real feminist and doesn’t need a man by her side 24/7. She never has.”

“She’s incredibly picky and John was somebody she definitely wanted to get to know if there was ever a point where they were both single,” the source adds of Munn. “John is much more of a work in progress than Olivia, but Olivia needed this change to her life. It’s been a rough last several years for her where she was stuck in a rut. This changes things up and gives her something to focus on beyond her career and social life.”

[From Us Weekly]

Reasons NOT to have a baby: proving feminist credentials, proving that you don’t need men, and needing to focus on something other than your career. This poor child hasn’t even been born yet and I feel so sorry for the kid. Yikes. In any case, it’s clear that they’re still together. But she’s definitely telegraphing the fact that a breakup will happen soon.

    “real feminist” who clearly haaates other women…. sure jan.

    • sunny says:

      “Real feminist” is such a terrible term and shows whoever wrote this knows shit about feminism.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      Her fug girls rant was also her screaming “feminism!” Like she was standing up to misogynistic bullies.

      Truth as history supports…
      She is a willing and informed participant in affairs.
      She has slandered and personally incited the bullying of other women for no justifiable reason.
      Her motivations in life seem to be towards furthering her own career at the cost of others lives.
      And I won’t even touch her Viacom days… but anyone that has a friend that met her or met her themselves knows.

  2. Lucy2 says:

    What a load of Japanese potatoes.

  3. Kviby says:

    You missed another reason not to have a baby, john’s reason in the interview with Seth… I think it was to save him? Save his life? I don’t know that the fact they both sound like idiots will actually mean they will be bad parents but they sure do sound like idiots

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Can you imagine this poor kid. He/she has to save daddy, validate Mom’s fake real feminism and never never ask about Japanese potatoes. This kid need a therapy fund from birth.

  4. MY3CENTS says:

    Hahaha “his pregnant girlfriend” loving it!
    Magic potato eater would also work.

  5. Cj says:

    “ John is much more of a work in progress than Olivia, but Olivia needed this change to her life”

    Bwahahahaha I love everything about this. He’s worse than she is, but look how she picked up the challenge of fixing him instead of having everything in her life be perfect. BWAHAHAHAHA good riddance. He’s brought this on himself, and I don’t care how self-deprecating you are, it’s not the same when your partner is the one making the comments.

    • ItReallyIsYou,NotMe k8 says:

      Can you imagine having your partner think this about you? So much for starting a relationship on an equal footing and with respect for the partner. This alone signifies that this relationship will be short.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Not only should anyone feel they can “fix” another person or Cure them from addictions. They should never bring a child into their fixer upper affair/fling/relationship. What a nightmare situation for that unborn child.

  6. rawiya says:

    “She’s a real feminist and doesn’t need a man by her side 24/7. She never has.” Literally not what feminism means, but go awf…husband-stealing heffa! (And I know she didn’t “steal” him, but it works in this context so lemme be petty)

    • Jules says:

      Lmao. Anytime someone is being over backwards to proclaim this is what “being a real feminist” is about, my eyes are already rolling.

    • ShazBot says:

      This makes me so mad – feminism gets a bad rap because of people throwing around stupid things like this. Like you said, literally not what feminism means.

    • tealily says:

      Hard for them to be around 24/7 when they have another wife or girlfriend, I guess. *shrug*

  7. milliemollie says:

    “She’s incredibly picky”. “A point where they were both single”.

    Sure, Jan.

    • Natters says:

      How can you say you are “picky” and get knocked up by a married addict? Anyway supposedly he’s moved on with an A list celebrity who I would love to know if true because who would want to be part of his train wreck.

      • milliemollie says:

        I know, right?! What about Mulaney in his current situation screams dream guy and future father of my child?! LMAO

    • ElleV says:

      i mean, she IS incredibly picky if you consider how she pinpoints men in struggling relationships or very, very fresh splits… no one’s saying she’s picking GOOD partners

  8. Ariel says:

    I don’t get everyone’s dislike for this girl.
    However, “stuck in a rut” is a TERRIBLE reason to have a baby with someone you are not in a long term relationship with.

    I wish the best for all of them, especially the tiny human. Lots of love and stability.

    • Kviby says:

      Personally I dislike her for her phony not really funny personality in interviews (not that she is unique with that) but more than that, as I recently mentioned, for writing a terrible pick me book basically for her fans who sound like nerdy incels (with some pretty toxic ideas.) – there is a podcast someone else recommended called celebrity memoir book club and you can hear about her shocking book there.
      Other people dislike her for doxing a fashion blog, go fug yourself, after they wrote about her outfit(s?)

      Other people dislike her for apparently liking and wanting john when he was married. IMO that was on married john to shut the friendship down but also not a very pleasant behaviour from her if it is true.
      She might be nice irl though, who knows? To say something nice she is beautiful and I bet their baby will be beautiful

      • Winechampion says:

        A couple of people have referenced her “doxxing” the Fug Girls, but huh? Everyone already knew who Heather and Jessica were; it wasn’t an anonymous blog. Are folks using “doxx” wrong?

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Let me give you a reason to dislike her, Google her tweet about a commercial staring a girl with down syndrome. When you have done that, try reading her book where she refers to herself not fitting in at a new school and she has to hang out with the nerds, geeks and r*tards.

      • BlueSky says:

        @Zapp on top of that being a habitual liar and her doxxing the Fugg Girls for their slight criticism of her outfit. She’s the kind that wants to be in the boy’s club to the detriment of other women.

      • lucy2 says:

        OMG. I didn’t like her for a number of other reasons but I didn’t know that tweet existed. That is just awful.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I didn’t know about that tweet either. she is truly an awful person.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      the author of this blog/post has REPEATEDLY indicated why the japanese potato enthusiast is not liked on this blog.

      and the other posters who don’t like her have REPEATEDLY indicated why they don’t.

      in a nutshell, she is not a nice person.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Listen to the podcast ‘Celebrity Memoir Book Club’ where they talk about her ‘memoir’. Horrible, horrible person.

  9. Natters says:

    Reasons not to have a child: to get out of a rut, especially with an addict father.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      And a man that has decided never to have children, a man with her point of view as “John is a much more work in progress than Olivia”, code for screwed up or doesn’t have his sh!t together!

  10. Sigmund says:

    This is 100% foreshadowing a breakup. She’s a “feminist”, she doesn’t need a man…definitely sounds like they’re in trouble or she’s preparing to leave.

    But whatever, it’s not like anybody expected them to stay together (except maybe Seth Meyers or Mulaney’s publicist? Not sure who was behind that terrible interview). This was almost certainly only ever a jumpoff or fling.

    At least AMT go to keep Petunia. She’s way better off than either of these two.

  11. Stephanie says:

    I genuinely hope (and I really mean that) they can get it together for the sake of the baby. The more details come out, the worse it sounds, especially the part about wanting a baby…because she was bored? Oh boy.

    • tealily says:

      I actually really hope they don’t get it together, but that at least one of them eventually lands a stable, decent partner for the sake of the baby.

  12. Tiffany :) says:

    It’s unfair to the child. She might think she can do it on her own, but the child and the father need each other, too. Yes, sometimes it happens where it’s best for the child if the father is away, but you shouldn’t set it up for that scenario from the get go.

    I think John is responsible for his own birth control, but I also think she didn’t need to involve an addict early in recovery if she wanted to be a mom. She could have been a mom on her own without involving him.

  13. LightPurple says:

    “Much more of a work in progress” is an interesting synonym for “fresh out of rehab and still making bad decisions.”

  14. FrodoOrOdo says:

    Those quotes are absolutely hilarious given all we’ve seen from she who shall not be named over the years.

    A feminist….

    Picky about men…


  15. Aephra says:

    I like the critter hat in the last picture, that’s all I have to say about this mess.

  16. LillyfromLillooet says:

    Welp, if this here is the truth I just want to shout out to @jais for questioning the veracity of things posted to DeuxMoi. Lesson learned for me.

    • Jais says:

      Thanks! Although, this sounds more like they’re together but possibly about to be not together bc she’s a feminist? Lol. So, I’m not sure it proves those posts were wrong just yet. We’ll see. I still question the veracity of deux-moi overall but maybe the posts were accurate so lesson learned for me as well.

  17. Ann says:

    Uh this is so F’d. What is wrong with this woman? If you want a baby that bad go to a sperm bank. This isn’t fair to John Mulaney as much as it isn’t fair to their child. Intentionally getting knocked up by someone fresh out of a marriage and in the throws of addiction. That ain’t feminism, that’s being a delusional bitch.

    • Moneypenny424 says:

      I don’t like this woman, but I don’t care for this “it isn’t fair” to a grown man (unless she actively lied to him). If he doesn’t want kids, he needs to be in charge of birth control as well and not have unprotected sex. He said he never wanted kids–then get a vasectomy.

      But I definitely agree that nothing Potato does is rooted in feminism.

      • Ann says:

        He isn’t in his right mind. I say this as someone fresh out of rehab too. People talk about power dynamics all the time regarding money and age but never about sobriety. I’m not trying to excuse JM’s actions because he was doing some awful things to himself and his ex-wife, but Munn had/has way more control over her own fertility and senses than a recovering addict.

        I do admit there are some faults and biases at play in my logic so I will end this by saying Mulaney needs to get his birth control affairs in order so this doesn’t happen again.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      She did want a baby. She is 41. She also chases men that by association will boost her career. John has very high connections and his friends will want to make sure his child is ok. And he comes from a decent amount of money. The Japanese potato eating GF is very picky about men for this reason imo she’s pretty set now.

  18. Valentina says:

    Okay baby Munn-Mulaney all you need to do is keep ‘saving’ your daddy from alcohol and prove mummy’s feminist credentials – no pressure!

  19. bears says:

    “Feminist” is not the word that comes to mind when I think of the kind of women who get off on sleeping with married men.

  20. Veronica S. says:

    Lolololol, they’re both such narcissistic idiots. That poor kid. I think Mulaney’s ex should take herself on a nice vacation, pour herself a glass of wine, and enjoy that she’s not saddled with this douchebag’s child for the rest of her life.

  21. Ann says:

    OK, so she had been thinking about wanting to have a baby and this: “John was somebody she definitely wanted to get to know if there was ever a point where they were both single.”

    Nice euphemism for “she set her cap for him years ago and jumped at the chance to pry him away from his wife and baby-trap him while he was in/just out of rehab and therefore a soft target.”

    What a mess.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, most normal people don’t think that kind of thing about married people. Even in a long term dating relationship it’s kind of sh–ty, but married is another level.

  22. elle says:

    If you’d told me that cover photo was Katherine Heigl, I’d believe you. Even with Japanese potatoes, I don’t see how that can be John Mulaney’s soon-to-be-former pregnant girlfriend.

  23. why? says:

    Translation: John is cheating on her, hasn’t fully committed to the child, and is still struggling with his drug addiction, but she is going to look the other way because she is more concerned about her perceived competition with John’s ex-wife(she won because she got pregnant with his first child before his wife did).

    That photo of them(he looks like he is fresh from a drug binge and she is wearing a face full of make-up like she was expecting the paps to show up) appeared on the internet before the rumors of the break up started trending on twitter. I don’t think that they are still together, but that she is going to do everything to make it seem that way because she wants the ex-wife and world to know that she won.

    She is going to spend their “whirlwind romance” doing damage control:

    She picked another woman’s husband who was struggling with a drug addiction and hooking up with his fans, how is that incredibly picky?

    She had motherhood on her mind way before she started dating a married man with a drug addiction? This makes it sound like she planned to get pregnant because it was the only way to get him to leave his wife and be her boyfriend.

    How is she is going to fix his drug addictions and cheating while taking care of a newborn? A work in progress just means that she is going to let him do whatever he wants as long as he shows up for the happy family staged photo-ops, photoshoots, and interviews.

  24. Ania says:

    She doesn’t need a man? Cool. But to intenationally have a child with a potential shitty dad because she was basically bored? I will judge that to hell and back. Kids need both parents, and I know life happens and single parents do amazing job – it’s a different thing to handle life as it happens and to just decide your kid won’t get to have a full home because mama is „a feminist”, whatever that is to her.

  25. Mask4mask says:

    Why do you refuse to say Olivia’s name and just refer to her as his pregnant girlfriend in your recent articles about them? And now you have the gall to judge her about her feminism? Really? How very feminist of you to center him and make her nameless except in your excerpts from other publications.

    • milliemollie says:

      This has been explained more than enough on here. You would know the reason if you actually read the recent articles about them. Reading helps.

    • Ann says:

      Her being nameless is kind of an inside joke on this site. And it’s well deserved based on her past words and actions, many dating from long before the Mulaney situation. She’s targeted other women, overweight people, etc. I’m sure you mean well but she doesn’t deserve your concern.

    • HeJude says:

      Yes, they do not negotiate with clout monsters who have done horrible things just to get their names out there.

      They take that wish completely away her and refuse to give this wretched human being who’s abused women, mocked heavy people, and ruined numerous relationships by home-wrecking just to get her name in headlines any name attention at all.

    • Ann says:

      What about this article and OM’s own words implies feminism? Feminism is the belief that men and women are equal yet here Ms. Purple Potatoes is saying she doesn’t need the man she chose to procreate with and JM was basically used as a conquest/sperm donor. That is so so not feminism and the tone of this interview is borderline misandry.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      * insert READING IS FUNDAMENTAL gif *

  26. Annie says:

    Wait… you’re “incredibly picky” and the best you can do is a philanderer fresh off rehab for some pretty serious addictions? A man who cheated on his wife all the time? Why are women into cheaters anyway? He will make you suffer the exact same way. Maybe even more because you’re carrying his child and you’ll be post partum with all the difficulties that come with it, and he’ll be back at his own ways, fully books so he’s too busy to be around you and the baby, and you’ll be alone. You’ll have a very sad time when you’re finally coming into motherhood.

    Stop putting men on pedestals. See them for who they are. Don’t idealize anyone.

    • lucy2 says:

      She also allegedly had a fling with Justin Timberlake, which automatically voids any claim of pickiness, IMO.

  27. HeyJude says:

    So instead of this being some trainwreck mistake that was imprudent but happens sometimes, she’s saying she used a barely sober alcoholic as a sperm bank because she had “becoming a mom on her mind” already and just wanted a kid anyway she could?!

    Really? That’s the story you’re going with, Thirsty?! That’s the better narrative?

  28. Juniper says:

    I’ve always had an irrational dislike for this woman. I’m so glad to know it’s justifiable.

  29. canichangemyname says:

    I mean, my takeaway is this: She wanted a kid, she’s having a kid, and yeah … the relationship probably won’t last. But the baby is wanted, they are likely both on financially-stable footing … I can think of worse situations for a kid to be born into. They’re both annoying but I imagine the kid will be okay.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She could have had the kid without involving an addict that is straight out of rehab and has had life threatening relapses withing the past 2 years. It’s incredibly selfish of her. Yes, she got what she may have wanted, but the child has a high likelihood of having an unreliable dad. If you put the kid first, you’d go about parenthood in a different way.

    • Sigmund says:

      Well, the baby is wanted by her. Mulaney was previously vocal about not wanting kids. Hopefully he can still be a present and involved father. 🤷‍♀️

      • Ann says:

        That’s what I was thinking. Honestly, it’s far from ideal but in their case I think it’s probably better if they co-parent but not as a couple. He never wanted kids, and if he has to be a full-time father with a partner who helped put him in this situation (I say “helped” because yes, it’s his own fault too) he might be resentful and that won’t be good for the kid. He can be like an involved divorced father, where she has primary custody but he spends time with the child and helps financially.

  30. Whatnow says:

    Choosing to have the father of your baby being addict does hurt the baby.

    Now this child will have to be on alert for addiction issues as they are hereditary.

    So yes Miss potato Head has stomped on how many people including her baby now.

  31. Keri says:

    He could have leaked split rumors to test the waters. See if what’s left of his life would survive dumping her. I feel for the baby.

    • Ann says:

      I think he can stick around for the first year or so and then call it quits. It least then it looks like he tried. I mean, it’s clear this relationship did not get off on the most functional foot, so it wouldn’t surprise people too much if it didn’t last. So long as he doesn’t walk out on a pregnant woman or a newborn, he will be….okay-ish.

  32. tealily says:

    Are we talking about a baby or a haircut here? Yeesh.

    I just hear that entire final paragraph being spoken directly to the reporter, word for word.

  33. It's me, hello says:

    Can someone link the story about her affair with JT, please!?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I don’t mean this in a snarky way, (ok maybe I do) but Google is free.

    • Nope says:

      I prefer a link too. The person’s source tells me a lot about whether I find them credible. And I don’t want to dismiss them because what comes up initially is the Daily Mail or TMZ when what poster was actually referencing was something from Vanity Fair.

      I also don’t want to spend 5 or more minutes on every claim like this. Google may be free, but my time isn’t.

  34. Kate says:

    I’m sorry but if we are not getting the name of the A lister I’m gonna explode

  35. Jayna says:

    I didn’t get the dislike or hate for Olivia. I don’t know much about her, though, except who she dated and her plastic surgery. But I read some of her “fat” so-called jokes, and wow!!!!! I mean, I give comics a lot of leeway, because jokes can get right up to the line, but then there hits a point, though, that , for me, a joke is simply not funny, and instead disgusting on so many levels. Her “fat” jokes disgust me. She does come across as unlikable.

    “I will fix America’s obesity problems by taking all motorized transport away from fat people,” she wrote. “In turn, I will build an infrastructure of Fat Tunnels, where all the fat people can walk. This will create jobs and subsequent weight loss.”

  36. Monica says:

    The cattiness on this thread about the potato eater is bringing me joy.
