Fans are convinced that Little Mix member Jesy Nelson is pregnant after her boyfriend Chris Hughes hinted that they’re expecting with a post on Instagram Stories. The former Love Island star took to social media and posted a red carpet photo of him and Jesy from the National Television Awards — where the singer won an award for her anti-bullying documentary Odd One Out.
Chris captioned the post writing, “She’s the best,” with an arrow pointing toward Jesy, but it was the baby emoji he added underneath the photo that had some people convinced that she’s pregnant. Chris and Jesy have yet to confirm or deny the rumors that they’re expecting.
These pregnancy rumors came just after Jesy denied that she was engaged to Chris. After her National Television Awards win, the songstress spoke to reporters. One noticed a diamond ring on her finger and asked if Chris had proposed.
Jesy replied, “No, it’s not an engagement ring. This is just accessories.”
Chris and Jesy first got together in January 2019. The pair was spotted hanging out at a Harry Potter-themed bar in London, after he reportedly slid into her DMs. Since then, the couple has been constantly gushing over each other on Instagram, supporting each other’s work and posting the cutest, PDA-filled snaps. In July 2019, Chris revealed that they had moved in together and made their romance work despite their busy schedules.
This isn’t the first time that the couple has sparked pregnancy rumors. Just after the news broke that they were a couple, the Little Mix member and her bandmates pranked Kiss FM host Tom Green by telling him that she was pregnant.
The radio show was in the midst of congratulating the girls on their album when Jesy interjected and said, “I thought you were going to say on the baby then…Seriously I am pregnant.”
So… Jesy from @LittleMix PRANKED us so good this morning 😲 😉
We totally fell for it…

The rest of Little Mix joined in on the joke until Jesy revealed she was kidding.
“Yeah I’m joking,” she admitted at the time.
