Pregnant Emily Ratajkowski Shuts Down Rumours That She Got Lip Injections
Writing on Instagram, the model, 29, was quick to silence any chatter surrounding how her body had changed in recent months, adding that she was "at peace" with the changes brought on by her pregnancy, and explaining that they were all natural.
"You can't even get injections when you're pregnant," she wrote as she shared a mirror selfie with fans. "A woman's blood volume increases 50 per cent which is why ladies can get a little puffy in the face and lips during pregnancy."
Emily - who is expecting her first child with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard - went on to tell fans she had never had lip injections at all, adding: "No judging folks who do - y'all look great!"
She also shut down trolls who sent bizarre comments like "you've been pregnant forever." Like any mother needs to be told that!
"LOL yes pregnancy lasts for 40 weeks which can definitely feel like a long time," she wrote in response.
"But I announced halfway into my pregnancy and it's only been three months since then! Actually it's weirdly gone by very quickly to me."

Emily told her fans she now had a new "appreciation" for her body, as a result of her pregnancy.
"It's weird to have your body change so much in a matter of months but I've found I have a whole new appreciation for what my body can do and what is beautiful, and I'm gonna celebrate it on here when I feel like it," she said.
The model announced her pregnancy in October 2020, in a cover interview with Vogue.
The Gone Girl star said, in an essay for the publication, that she didn't want to reveal her baby's gender.
"Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are? This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled," she wrote.
"I'm completely and undeniably helpless when it comes to almost everything surrounding my pregnancy: how my body will change, who my child will be. But I'm surprisingly unbothered.
"Instead of feeling afraid, I feel a new sense of peace. I'm already learning from this person inside my body. I'm full of wonder."
