Halle Bailey has hit out at a fan who commented on her "pregnancy nose".

There's a lot of speculation currently surrounding the 23-year-old Little Mermaid star, with Page Six reporting that many of the actress' fans believe she's currently pregnant with her first child.

Bailey is currently dating her rapper boyfriend, DDG (real name Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr.), and previously revealed to Cosmopolitan that the star is her "first deep, deep, real love".

Fans have been discussing a potential pregnancy since August, after Bailey briefly appeared in one of DDG's Instagram Live streams. And then, back in October, Bailey and DDG attended the Glamour Women of The Year Awards - and some believed her dress was chosen to hide any potential bump.

However - like with any pregnancy - any baby news should always be left up to the parents and, until then, fans should really stay quiet and quit speculating.

Nevertheless, this is the internet, and some people just cannot help themselves - as evidenced by Bailey having to address one comment about her "pregnancy nose".

Check out the video below:

Responding to the fan's comment on Snapchat, Bailey firmly said: "If I see one more person say something about my nose, just one more time - it's gonna be hell to pay. And you know why? Because I am Black. I love my nose.

"What are you concerned about my nose for? Leave me the hell alone!"

I don't think we could have put it better ourselves.

After sharing the clip, there were plenty of people sharing the video online and calling Bailey out for calling out the "nose" part of the comment, but not the "pregnancy" part.

But rather than share those comments, let's instead focus on the many important reasons why you should never comment or ask if a person is pregnant.

According to the parenting website Bounty, a general rule of thumb is you should never ask if somebody is pregnant. "Even if you think someone looks pregnant, don’t assume that they are. You just never know," they add.

Bounty explains that such "tactless questions" can add insult to injury at times - adding that there is "the possibility she may have had a miscarriage or gained weight through taking fertility drugs - and, in both cases, the pain of not being pregnant will be very raw so definitely don’t add to it."

Another reason for a change in physical appearance may simply be bloating.

Additionally, even if a woman is pregnant, she may be waiting for the right time in order to share the news - and asking may force "her to either tell a porkie or part with a happy little secret that she has every right to savor".

Whether it is Halle or anybody else - just let them announce the happy news when they're ready.
