IS SHE OR ISN’T SHE? BUZZ BUILDS THAT GWYNETH PALTROW’S STAR-STUDDED “ENGAGEMENT PARTY” WAS REALLY HER BIG DAY.

Gwyneth Paltrow looked every bit a blushing bride when she and Brad Falchuk stepped onstage at the Los Angeles Theater to thank the 400 guests who had attended their black-tie, live-band, A-list soiree on April 14 — and every bit a newlywed when she stepped out days later wearing a fresh wedding finger ring inscribed with her man’s initials. In fact, the circumstantial evidence is so convincing, rumors are flying that the “engagement party” thrown by 47-year-old Brad’s Glee cocreator, Ryan Murphy — about which Gwyneth wrote a gushing tribute on Instagram thanking “all of our amazing true and dear friends who came to support us,” including Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson — marked their actual nuptials!

SECRET OPS

Engaged since January, Gwyneth, 45, has gone out of her way to throw reporters off the scent of her plans, alternately claiming she was giddily organizing a huge to-do since her 2003 elopement with Chris Martin meant she’d “never had a wedding,” and saying she was “[too] old to have a big wedding and a big ol’ white dress and all that.” Still, speculation that the April 14 fete was a vow exchange hits some snags: While Gwyneth’s mom, Blythe Danner, was in attendance — carrying a garment bag from bridal gown designer Monique Lhuillier — her kids, Apple, 13, and Moses, 12, were M.I.A., a guest-list oversight that seems highly unlikely. Some sources say an intimate ceremony may yet await the Avengers star this summer. Oy, just recouple already!
