The internet blew up on Wednesday when Ivanka Trump posted a photo of herself where she appeared to be pregnant. The picture, which was meant to be a birthday post for her husband's 37th birthday, sparked speculation that she’s expecting baby no. 4.
The post, which went on both Twitter and Instagram, showed Ivanka, who is the first daughter of the United States and advisor to the president, and Jared standing together in a garden. In the photo, Ivanka's hand rests on her stomach.
She captioned the photo: “Happy birthday, Jared! Thank you for being the most amazing father, husband, and best friend I could have dreamed of. Here’s to you!”
Many commenters immediately assumed that the post also served as a pregnancy announcement. They began congratulating Trump and Kushner, who’s also an adviser to the president, on their new baby.
However, a source told People that Ivanka is not pregnant. The photo was a throwback from her last pregnancy.
Trump, 36, posted the same photo in January 2016, when she was pregnant with her younger son, Theodore, now 1.
At the time, she captioned it: "I am looking forward to a year filled with love, laughter and adventure with my incredible husband, Jared, and our (growing) family."
Trump was evidently advised of the confusion. She later updated the caption on her Instagram post with the hashtag “#Throwback.”
It's likely that she regretted her photo choice after all the chaos. The couple is also parents to daughter Arabella, 6, and son Joseph, 4.
