Megan Fox's publicist cuts TV interview short over Steve Jones' baby question

By Mike Larkin

It seems Megan Fox is intent on keeping mum about the rumours she is expecting a baby.

The Transformers star's publicist stopped an interview with Steve Jones after he pressed her on the issue.

The cheeky presenter, who was brutally fired from the U.S. version of the X Factor earlier this year, made his first high-profile gotcha as an Entertainment Tonight host after exasperating the actress during a routine interview.


Shocked: Megan Fox could not believe it when Steve Jones asked about whether she was pregnant on Entertainment Tonight

Rumours have been swirling for weeks she is expecting her first child with husband Brian Austin Green, but the pair have yet to comment on the subject and Steve was determined to get a scoop.

She looked stunned after he gamely asked her: 'Do you know the ultimate gadget that every man wants? A baby.'

The star looked confused as she replied: 'A baby? Oh, I know where you’re going with this.'

The Welsh Lothario continued to probe the sexy actress, saying: 'Any plans to give anybody a baby?'

Cut: Megan's publicist soon stepped in to stop the interview in its tracks

She ineptly tried to deflect his question, replying, 'you hear the grumbles. No, no,' but her feeble response caused her panicking publicist to demand an end to the interview.

And as the speechless actress started to chuckle uncontrollably, the smug presenter complied with the request.

As he shook her hand he told her: 'Well, either way Megan, it was a pleasure talking to you.'

The witty former model was certainly pleased with himself after achieving his first high-profile moment since taking up his new stint as a host on the show.

He will be hoping it helps restore his tattered reputation following his disastrous X Factor stint.

In the studio the 35-year-old quipped: 'I’d like to formally apologise to Ms. Fox for attacking her with the word baby. Thankfully, there was a publicist there to stop me.'

And before the interview was broadcast he boasted about the incident on Twitter.

He wrote: 'Watch me attack Megan Fox this eve on Entertainment Tonight with a question about babies....suck it 60minutes!'

Former T4 favourite Steve is anchoring the CBS entertainment news show with Nancy O'Dell on Wednesday and Thursday.

He started the job at the end of March, and it is his first high profile role since he was axed from the Fox reality competition along with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
