Kaley Cuoco slams suggestions that she's pregnant after sharing honeymoon photo
Being a celebrity known worldwide definitely comes with its fair share of perks and luxuries, but that doesn't mean that it's all sunshine and rainbows. Celebs like Kaley Cuoco are recognised by a lot of people, which means there are going to be plenty of fans and trolls to deal with, and it's not always going to be the most pleasurable experience.
Most fans of the actress likely just think she's good in The Big Bang Theory, but fan attention can get a little exhausting - even when it comes from a good place.
Cuoco's was simply sharing a photo of herself with her husband when one small detail got blown out of proportion. And, given the way the internet works, even a few Instagram comments can turn into a big story once a celebrity gets involved.
On Wednesday, the 33-year-old shared a photo of her from her European honeymoon with Karl Cook, who she has been married to for the last seven months. In the black and white romantic snap, she added nothing more than the caption, 'Love in Lugano', but it was her positioning that was enough to set some commenters off.
Because she was leaning in for a kiss, her dress hung in such a way that it looked like it may reveal a slight baby bump - or at least, that's what some fans thought. “Are you hiding a baby bump?!?!” one fan wrote in Cuoco’s comment section on Instagram, while another asked “When’s the baby due???”.
After this all spun out of control, with many of her fans wondering if she'd deliberately dropped a hint about a potential pregnancy, the actress took to Instagram to put the issue to rest.
Posting a screenshot of some of the comments to her Instagram stories on Thursday, she got pretty frustrated with the overblown 'scandal'.
“I’m so sorry I bent over in a way to where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this,” Cuoco wrote. “Question. Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?”
This isn't the first time that Cuoco has had to deal with this speculation before either. Back in October, she shared a photo from the InStyle awards, which also led to many asking her if she was expecting a child. In response to these "social media trolls," she said:
“So, because I’m in traffic I thought I’d take this time to comment on some Instagram trolls. I posted a picture this morning of my sister and I from an event last night and people said I looked pregnant.
“Now, would you ever walk up to someone on the street or at an event where they’re obviously dressed up and say, ‘Are you pregnant?' It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that.”
“I’m not pregnant. I guess it was a pregnant angle. Seriously, shut up,” she added, but it looks like until it happens - some people are still going to be spotting it wherever they can.
