Hailey Bieber shuts down 'disheartening' pregnancy rumours

Hailey Bieber shuts down 'disheartening' pregnancy rumours

A photo of Justin cradling a newborn baby recently sent fans into a frenzy

Hailey Bieber has responded to all those pregnancy rumours, having hit back at the speculation by saying there’s something ‘disheartening’ about it.

Hailey, 26, and Justin, 29, have been married for five years after tying the knot at a courthouse in lower Manhattan back in September 2018.

Of course, when people of a certain age are together for long enough, questions inevitably turn to when they’ll have kids – yep, rarely if, but when. Grrr.

That’s a question Hailey’s found herself batting off recently, especially after fans totally lost it when they saw a photo of her husband cradling a newborn baby.

While the initial excitement of seeing Justin with a baby sent some people into a frenzy, his accompanying caption quickly clarified the situation.

The tot was not in fact his and Hailey's, but actually the child of 41-year-old E! News host, Jason Kennedy, and his wife, 35-year-old fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs.

The baby snaps sent the internet into a frenzy.

The 'Peaches' singer captioned the pics: "Meet my niece Poppy Ford Kennedy.

"Anyone who knows @thejasonkennedy and @thelaurenkennedy know their journey and challenges with having kids."

He added: "They now have two beautiful babies that I’m absolutely obsessed with."

Hailey has now addressed fans’ obsession with the matter in a new interview with GQ, explaining how the gossip affects her.

“Recently, everybody was like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s pregnant,’ and that’s happened to me multiple times before,” she said.

“There is something that’s disheartening about, Damn, I can’t be bloated one time and not be pregnant? It would be a lie if I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I don’t give a s**t.’

“When there comes a day that that is true, you […] you, as in the internet, will be the last to know.”

Hailey said pregnancy rumours felt 'disheartening'.

Hailey had previously spoken out in early interviews about wanting to raise her family out of the spotlight – something her own parents did.

However, she’s accepted that the attention is ‘probably totally unavoidable’.

“That was before I was married,” she explained.

“Didn’t know who I was going to be married to at the time, I’m sure.

“Maybe I liked the idea at 18 of not raising kids around certain things, but my life is so different now than it was when I was 18.

“It’s so hard to say what I’m going to do or not do when there isn’t even a child here yet. I don’t even know what it feels like to be a parent other than a dog parent yet. And that’s not the same thing, by any means.”

Hailey said motherhood is something she ‘looks forward to’, saying it’s also ‘such a private, intimate thing’.

“It’s something that’s going to come when it comes,” she added.

“And it’s just, honestly, at the end of the day, so hilarious how much people f*cking care. Let me do what I want to do with my body and you guys can do what you want to do with your bodies – and let’s just let it be that.”
