Behati Prinsloo was forced to hit back on social media this week after she began getting a wave of pregnancy congratulations on social media — despite not actually announcing that she’s pregnant with her and husband Adam Levine’s third child. The stunning Victoria’s Secret model was forced to share a clarification on her Instagram account after many of her fans speculated that she may have posted a blurry look at an ultrasound.
The snap appeared on Behati’s Instagram page on March 23 and showed several gray blobs on a black background with no caption or explanation.
Many of her 5.9 million followers jumped to the conclusion that the cryptic snap showed part of an ultrasound and began flooding her mentions with congratulations for both her and Adam.
After seeing the messages come in, Behati quickly returned to the social media site to offer a little clarification. She made it clear that the photo most definitely was not of an ultrasound. Instead, she revealed the upload was a result of her eldest daughter, 3-year-old Dusty, getting a hold of her phone and finding an arty snap she’d taken earlier.
“Guys. This is not an ultrasound lol. Dusty got hold of my phone and somehow posted this picture from my photo library i thought it was weird and cool and left it up,” she wrote in the caption of the upload.
“But everyone is now congratulating me on my 3rd pregnancy,” she then added with a crying laughing emoji before clarifying that the photo was actually “a close up of my black and white splatter sweat pants!”
Fans then began to flock to the comments section to joke about the mishap and to share their thoughts on Dusty’s impressive Instagram ability.
One called the 3-year-old little girl a “subtle genius.”
“Way to go dusty,” another person commented.
“LMAO THATS HILARIOUS!!!” another third fan commented with several crying laughing emoji. “People crack me up! But thanks for making me laugh today!”

Adam and Behati are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Gio and have previously shared their hopes to expand their family.
“[Adam] wants five [kids]. I thought I wanted five, but now I think maybe three or four would be good. I’m backing [up], but just by one,” the model said during a 2019 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, per People.
