The 35-year-old Bravo bartender stunned her 1.3 million social media followers as she posed for a photo while holding up a pink thermometer. In the caption, the longtime girlfriend of Tom Sandoval explained her use of a birth control app, which is used in conjunction with her body basal temperature. She also reminded her fans to practice safe sex as she touted the all-natural method.
In the comments section, many of Ariana's followers admitted they did a double-take when they saw her holding up the stick thermometer.
"Am I the only person whose heart almost hit the floor thinking this was a pregnancy test at first? Lmao," one fan wrote.
"Hahaha... I have to admit, at first glance, I thought it was a positive pregnancy test! Wishful thinking!" another admitted.
"100% saw a pregnancy stick, I mean there is a serious baby trend with VPR," a third fan chimed in.
"Why would you play games like this you know we were all hoping it was a pregnancy test?" another wrote to Ariana.
While some followers thanked Ariana for using her platform to promote natural family planning, a few commenters mistakenly congratulated the Vanderpump Rules veteran for coming through with a pregnancy announcement. Others realized Ariana wasn't announcing that she was pregnant, but asked her if she and Tom are trying for a baby now.
