AceShowbiz - Teyana Taylor is not having a bun in the oven. The singer/actress has been forced to address the pregnancy speculation, which sparked on the Internet following her appearance at the 2023 Gotham Awards.
For the 33rd edition of the ceremony honoring independent films, the 32-year-old showed off her curves in a black sling dress that perfectly fitted her body. Baring her cleavage with the low-cut, the model/dancer could not hide her stomach, which looked a bit bloated that night.
After photos and video of her pose on the red carpet were posted online, many began speculating that Teyana flashed a baby bump at the event. "She's pregnant," one person reacted to the "Dark Fantasy" singer's look at the award show.
Another commented, "She has like a 10 pack flat abs so unless she just ate she's def preg." A third weighed in, "Uh oh I know I ain't the only one thinking ...is there a baby otw." A fourth person asked, "is she pregnant??" while another similarly inquired, "Is that a baby bump."
Others, meanwhile, begged to differ as one social media user claimed, "I thought she was pregnant for sec but she's always been that's girl." Another clapped back at the speculators, "So bloating and having a big meal doesn't exist anymore? y'all see a little tummy and go straight to pregnant."
Apparently catching wind of the comments on Hollywood Unlocked's post about her look that night, Teyana quickly set the record straight. In the comments section of the same post, she denied that she's having a bun in the oven and that she was just having a full bladder.
"Auntey ain't preggo y'all! I just had to pee. Y'all know that pee pouch ain't nothing to play wit," she wrote with a slew face with tears of joy emojis. "My kangaroo head a**," she added, before correcting herself, "kangaroo pouch."
Teyana announced her split from Iman Shumpert, with whom she shares two children together, in September. Earlier this month, it was revealed that she had filed for divorce from the former NBA star months before the split confirmation.
She later released a statement expressing her disappointment that the divorce news got leaked to the public. "It is very heartbreaking that someone would take out the time to make such a private matter public for the world to see," she wrote on her Instagram Story.
