Los Angeles, CA (CNS) – Newly wed Ellen DeGeneres has revealed that she is the new face of cosmetics line CoverGirl, she tells her audience on her eponymous talk show Tuesday.
She said, “You know how I always like to share what’s going on in my life with you all, and I was going to give you some news and, unfortunately, rumors started circulating all over the Internet.”
“I am here to set the record straight right now. I am not pregnant. It just turned out to be a bump. I went and had it checked out.”
DeGeneres, 50, then announced: “I am the new face of CoverGirl.”
However, fans would have to wait until January to see her commercial ad.
She adds, “We were going to let you know [in January], but somehow people found out about it.”
For her part, DeGeneres – who is recently married to actress Portia De Rossi – says she’s “very, very excited” about her new gig.
“It’s a very cool thing, I’m honored and the photo shoot was ‘easy, breezy, beautiful… CoverGirl.'”
