Paris Hilton shut down pregnancy rumors after waking up to 3,000 text messages congratulating her and fiancé Carter Reum.

On Tuesday, the socialite and reality TV star denied she was pregnant with her first child at age 40 in a new episode of her podcast, "This Is Paris."

"I woke up to about 3,000 texts. I heard from people I haven't heard from in years. Thank you everyone for all the messages. I am pregnant with triplets.

"Actually I'm just kidding. I'm not pregnant, not yet. I'm waiting until after the wedding."

But her denials failed to put a dent in the rumormongering. Paris and her vacant uterus were still making headlines Wednesday morning.

Paris Hilton believes the rumor mill went into overdrive after she wore a push up bra at dinner with her fiancé, Carter Reum.

"I don't know how this rumor started, but I'm assuming it was the Paris Hilton push-up bra from my new lingerie line. It could look like those were because of a pregnancy, but nope. And my dress was very flowy. People just like to make up stories."

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old businesswoman and DJ is set to try her hand at the culinary arts in her upcoming six-episode Netflix TV series, "Cooking with Paris."

Paris' show will follow the star and her celebrity guests as they go "from the grocery store to the finished table spread" and create a delicious dinner.

The Simple Life star is not a trained chef, but she knows her way around a microwave.

In a trailer released on Tuesday, the beauty can be seen struggling to grasp the concept of "tongs" and zesting lemons.
