Ashley Benson posted photos of what appeared to be a baby bump that sent Pretty Little Liars fans into a Twitter tirade. Did the actress just release accidental spoilers? Was she actually pregnant, or was she gaining weight, questioned Pretty Little Liars followers in a social media uproar, reported E! News.
It all began when Ashley shared photos that revealed her with co-star Tyler Blackburn kissing her bared tummy, which appeared to have a slight bulge. Subsequent photos showed even more of what looked like a baby bump.
After the uproar continued, the Pretty Little Liars actors finally calmed their loyal audience by linking that supposed baby bump to a bulge from food. But fans had their day in the oh-no-she-didn’t realm first.
“IS AshLEY BENSON PREGNANT AND TYLER OH MYNSUO HOSH WHAT”
“IS ASHLEY BENSON REALLY PREGNANT OR IS THIS FOR PRETTY LITTLE LIARS OR WHAT BECAUSE OMG”
“Ashley Benson is pregnant, what’s gonna happen in PLL?! Is Hannah gonna pregnant too!? #ohlord”
“ASHLEY BENSON IS PREGNANT WITH TYLER BLACKBURNS BABY I DIDNT EVEN KNOW THEY WERE DATING”
“IS ASHLEY BENSON REALLY PREGNANT WITH TYLER BLACKBURN’S BABY”
Some fans had their hopes dashed because they really wanted that pregnancy.
“ASHLEY BENSON AND TYLER BLACKBURN ARE PREGNANT AND ITS THE BEST THING EVER AND I JUST REALLY CANT OH MY GOOOOOOOOSH”
As far as the real truth about what’s set to happen on Pretty Little Liars? Was that intended to be a hint about the next season? No, Ashley and Tyler were just having fun with their fans.
As for those pregnancy rumors, Miley Cyrus has born the brunt of baby bump reports as well, as the Inquisitr reported. She got so frustrated with them that she mocked the media in a parody, showing a “pizza baby” fake sonogram.
As far as rumors that Ashley is gaining weight? Benson actually has a very trim figure, reported the Daily Mail. Although it might seem that she’s bold in baring that supposed baby bump, she actually says that she’s shy.
“When people first meet me, they always think that I’m a b****. I always get called that. Always. Because I don’t talk. Weirdly, I’m shy. I get really nervous in public situations, but once you get to know me, I’m so outgoing, I’m so loud and bombastic. I have the biggest mouth. But [at first] I’m very closed off. I hold in emotions. I don’t like to be vulnerable, ever.”
