Emily Ratajkowski wrote a very confusing Instagram post which got the rumor mill buzzing that her message was actually a pregnancy announcement.
The photo that started it all was one of the brunette beauty sitting in a tree with a fruit in front of her belly. She decided to caption it “Bearing Fruit.” In a matter of seconds, the comments section exploded with remarks that Ratajkowski was making a confusing and slightly bizarre pregnancy announcement.
It is easy to see why social media users jumped to the conclusion she was pregnant. The fruit was perfectly placed, plus the common literary references to 'bearing' children. As it turns out, the model was not sharing any life changing news. At the premiere of Amy Schumer’s new film I Feel Pretty, which Ratajkowski also stars in, she shut down the rumors her post was actually a cryptic pregnancy announcement.
“I wasn't thinking of that when I posted it. That's really sweet that people were so excited. I'm not pregnant. I was in a tree holding fruit. Instagram captions are not the easiest thing to come up with. And it seemed like the right one. I was bearing fruit,” the 26-year-old explained to USA Today.
The confusing post comes hot on the heels of Ratajkowski’s secret romance and wedding to indie film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard. They tied the knot in February, a couple of weeks after news of their romance went public. Her rushed wedding made it easy for people to assume she was announcing her pregnancy on Instagram.
Although she is not pregnant right now, the model has revealed in the past she does want a family. Right now though, her star power keeps climbing as she continues to book pivotal roles in some of Hollywood’s biggest films. Ratajkowski is currently in the midst of promoting I Feel Pretty, where she gets to play Schumer’s idea of a perfect woman.
“I just want to continue to do great things,” she shared at the premiere referencing both her personal and professional life.
