You'd think, by now, that everyone would have well and truly got the memo that speculating whether or not a woman is pregnant is absolutely not it. Unfortunately though, that doesn't seem to be the case, with the likes of Kourtney Kardashian still being forced to answer questions about if she's expecting. Luckily for Kourtney, she's an expert when it comes to shutting down unwanted rumours, so she had the perfect response to one fan who publicly questioned if she's pregnant.

It all started after the 42-year-old shared a series of photos from her latest holiday with fiancé Travis Barker. In the photos, she shares a very steamy hot tub snog with Travis, but fans took to the comments section to ask why she'd kept her belly hidden in most of the slides. "Baby mama," wrote one Instagram user, with another adding "Not to be that girl but... is that a preg belly?"

Understandably, the comment did not go unnoticed by Kourtney, who decided to call her fan out on it. "Are we really gonna do this every time I post a photo," she commented, according to @commentsbycelebs. "When will people learn not to ask if someone is pregnant?" another fan responded, with someone else commenting "It's never OK to tell a woman she looks pregnant. Ever."

But, it's not the first time the Poosh founder has been forced to deny that she's expecting another baby. In fact, earlier this year she was hit with yet more pregnancy suspicion, after she shared a photo of herself trying on a SKIMS bra. "Homegirl, you're pregnant right?" questioned one follower, with a second adding: "If you're pregnant and you know it clap your hands."

Once again, Kourtney didn't let the comments go unchecked. According to E! News, in response to one Instagram user commenting, "SHES PREGNANT," Kourtney replied, "I'm a woman with a BODY."

As we all (should) know, pregnancy can be a very sensitive subject – so questioning whether someone is expecting a baby can be triggering for many reasons. When a person makes assumptions or asks questions related to pregnancy, they're unaware of the impact this can have; whether the person they're projecting on perhaps can't get pregnant, has been pregnant but is no longer; or whether they don't want to become pregnant.

So, let this be a reminder, to leave speculating about whether a woman is pregnant in 2021.
