Normally, when pregnancy rumors start swirling around a celeb, they’ll go with one of the following options:
- Say the paparazzi are conspiring against them.
- Tell everyone it was just an unflattering camera angle.
- SUE ALL THE THINGS!
Unless you’re the super adorable Alyson Hannigan, in which case you just tell everyone that you were a tiny bit bloated because carnival food is delicious (and it totally is. Ever tried a beaver tail? Muah. Perfection.) According to Us Weekly:
“NO, I’m not pregnant!” Hannigan Tweeted Sunday. “I just ate too much carnival food, that time of the month, hurt my back & couldn’t suck my gut in, and need to do cardio!” She added of her less-than-flattering look: “And I’m NEVER gonna wear that shirt again!!!” The good-natured star wasn’t even annoyed at the assumptions, either. “I do LOOK pregnant in that photo!” she admitted (see the photo). Plus, she had a great time at the Malibu carnival — where her little girl Satyana won a goldfish. “The carnival was really fun! And Sati won a goldfish on her 2nd try! Put my ping pong throwing skills to shame.”
See what I mean? Adorable. And actually kind of refreshing when you think about all the celebrities who get caught looking just the teensiest bit non-waifish and automatically go into full PR bullshit mode by blaming absolutely everyone but the delicious food that they ate in order to stay alive. Seriously, there’s nothing wrong with eating something unhealthy but delicious every now and then. It’s not like we burn people at the stake just because they want to go to McDonald’s and dip the fries in a milkshake. Oh my God, please tell me someone else has done that because it’s just soooooooo good … I miss eating.
