No, Ivanka Trump is not pregnant again, but it seems like the First Daughter is trying to distract from her disastrous Time’s Up tweet by spreading some fake news of her own. Just days after being skewered on social media for her misguided support of Oprah Winfrey, Ivanka looked as though she was announcing another pregnancy with husband Jared Kushner.
Except, she’s not. The birthday message for her hubby — complete with throwback pregnancy pic — definitely confused followers, who were convinced the 36-year-old was expecting baby No. 4. “Happy birthday, Jared! Thank you for being the most amazing father, husband, and best friend I could have dreamed of. Here’s to you,” she captioned the photo. Insert eye roll here.
As expected, her fans quickly flooded the comments section with well wishes, unaware that the photo in question is from 2016, when she was pregnant with her youngest son Theodore. “Happy birthday and congratulations on the new baby,” one commenter wrote. Another exclaimed, “What?? Another baby?? This is amazing.”
However, some people weren’t fazed by her ~distraction~ tactics. “People, relax, she’s not pregnant. Old pic. She’s playing y’all like a flute, getting you all whipped up into a froth so people can stop talking about her ridiculous Oprah tweet,” one astute follower wrote, before another agreed, “It’s an old photo. She’s not pregnant. Just trying to change the subject after her tone-deaf #timesup tweet.”
Following the Golden Globes on Jan. 7, the mother-of-three applauded Oprah for her rousing speech while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award — seemingly unaware that the talk show host made jabs at her father President Donald Trump, who has been accused of sexual harassment by several women. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood quickly responded and let Ivanka know that her tweet was not enough. “Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father’s accusers,” actress Alyssa Milano wrote. Chrissy Teigen simply replied, “Ew go away.” This, along with her tone-deaf Christmas video, confirms it may be time for Ivanka to take a little break from social media.
