Last night's Oscars came with plenty of surprises. The Revenant didn't win Best Picture, Joe Biden showed up, and Lady Gaga invented a concept forever immortalized in the phrase "secret pants." No surprise, however, came close to a celebrity pregnancy announcement, until now — maybe.

A few Twitter users noticed Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, and Kate Winslet talking during the ceremony. They're conversation may appear to be a normal chat between friends to the untrained eye, but to the expert womb watchers of the internet, it was much more. When Kate Winslet looked as if she had made some kind of shocking announcement —one that might lead to a surprised facial expression from Cate Blanchett, plus a hug and a belly touch — many cried, "Celebrity pregnancy!"

Look closer:

Time will tell if Kate Winslet is indeed pregnant with her fourth child. But the only thing that would make this internet conspiracy theory even more internet-y is if Leonardo DiCaprio were the father.
