Lili Reinhart wants everyone to know she definitely isn't pregnant — and says it's f--ked up that people think so.

The 21-year-old actress, who's adorably dating her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse, weighed in on fans' unfair speculation — after a speculative candid photo made its rounds on Twitter and Instagram.


While Riverdale fans were busy having a speculative field day, Lili took to her Instagram story to halt the rumour-mill — and explained her fluctuating body type is TOTALLY normal.

"It's unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the Internet causes hundreds of people to think that I'm pregnant."

Lili, like most women, said she's subjected to an ever-changing body weight — and slammed fans who were all too quick to assume a pregnancy. YES, GIRL!

"Nope. Not pregnant. This is just my body. And sometimes I'm bloated. Sometimes an unflattering photo is taken of me. Sometimes I go through periods of time where I gain weight."

"My body is something that I will NEVER apologise for."

"My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that's fine. So let's not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger's figure."

Lili's fans are totally here for her clapback to body-shamers, including her no.1 fan and on-screen bestie, Camila Mendes.

"Inspired by you @lilireinhart. I feel bloated 24/7, my weight fluctuates constantly, it comes with being a woman and should be celebrated, not criticised.

I used to fear the day that people start [sic] publicly criticising my body and commenting on my weight. I've suffered too much from my own self-criticism, and wasn't sure that I could handle it from others. But seeing somebody as beautiful as Lili respond to public scrutiny by preaching and practicing self-love is all it takes for me to overcome that fear. Proud to call her my friend. Let's continue inspiring women to love their bodies."

Lili's right — nobody should ever need to defend their body type, no matter how voracious the rumours are surrounding it (and how MESSED the Internet can be).

The rumours come after co-star couple Lili and Cole made their official debut at the Met Gala in May, confirming months of couple speculation from the Riverdale fandom.

And for now, pregnancy or no pregnancy, we'll just be over here fawning over Cole and Lili's cuteness. Don't mind us.
