During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Dua Lipa addressed rumors about her pregnancy which sparked off when she shared a photo of herself on Twitter last week. The singer sparked pregnancy rumors last week after she shared a photograph of herself on holiday via Twitter alongside a series of emojis in the caption.
Among the emojis were baby bottles, a teddy bear, and an angel, leading fans to speculate that Lipa might be expecting her first child with her boyfriend, model Anwar Hadid, younger brother to Bella and Gigi.
However, the 25-year-old has now dispelled the rumors and assured fans that she simply enjoys posting a mix of emojis to accompany her photos on social media and did not think it through on this occasion.
“I like finding little random emojis, like a little baby bottle or angels and sparkles. Random,” she told Jimmy Kimmel on the show.
“I really didn’t think this through and I posted it and then I look at the comments and somebody says, ‘is she pregnant?’ And I look at the picture, I look at the comment, I look at the picture, I look at the comment, and I’m like, ‘surely I don’t look pregnant?’”
The One Kiss singer continued, “And then I see that people have been writing stories saying that I posted some cryptic message that I might be announcing my pregnancy. And I’m just like, “oh my God, these emoji have come to bite me in the a**e… Or the stomach”. ‘So I just deleted the caption, but I wasn’t smart enough and I didn’t take it off my Twitter.”
Concluding the conversation regarding the same, the singer said, “I’m not pregnant, just to clear it up. Not pregnant.”
Lipa has since deleted that caption so as to not mislead her fans further.
