Fans of Geordie Shore beauty Charlotte Crosby were left convinced she was pregnant after she shared a loved-up snap with boyfriend Joshua Ritchie – while showing off her bare stomach, with her shorts completely undone.
The reality TV star saw several comments being posted under a snap of her and her beau asking if she was expecting her first child.
But now Charlotte, 28, has addressed the rumours – and revealed exactly why she decided to pose that way for her photograph.
“So I just would like to clarify, I am not pregnant,” she said on her Instagram story.
“She is!” her boyfriend retorted, causing Charlotte to scream: “Josh!”.
Charlotte continued: “I put a photo up where I don’t have my button fastened because I don’t fasten my buttons on my shorts. And I noticed every comment says: ‘oh my God she’s pregnant!’”

“Im not pregnant guys,” she said, flashing the camera to her shorts. “Just got my buttons undone.”
Charlotte recently opened up about her pregnancy plans, revealing she wants to have a baby as early as next year.
She said: “Having a family is one thing in life I really want – I’ve done so much with my life already and becoming a mum is my dream.”
“I want the fairy tale of getting married and having babies – doesn’t everyone?” Charlotte, whose ex-boyfriend Gaz Beadle recently welcomed his first child, continued to Closer magazine.
“I can see myself marrying and having babies with Josh, but he’s still quite young, so we’ll see.
“I would love to start trying for a baby, next year. I don’t want to be an old mum. I want to be a young, cool mum.”
