We’ve all dealt with a “food baby” situation before. You go a little overboard on Taco Tuesday and suddenly you look like you’re eating for two. No big deal. After a day or so of healthy eating, you’re back to normal and no one bothers you about it.
But if you’re a celebrity like Halle Berry and this happens, suddenly everyone on the planet begins assuming you’re pregnant and needs to ask you about it.
In fact, Berry had to directly address pregnancy rumors that began circulating, and she did so in the best way. She posted a flawless Instagram picture with the caption, “Can’t a girl have some steak and fries?”
Halle Berry is mom to son Maceo and daughter Nahla, and that’s it for right now. She also had her rep confirm she is, in fact, not pregnant.
Go ahead and eat what you want, Halle. Life is short!
