Zendaya is seemingly shutting down the pregnancy rumors.

In a pair of Instagram Stories updates shared on Wednesday, Zendaya appeared to address the chatter that’s been growing in recent days. And while she didn’t specifically mention “pregnancy rumors,” the implication seems clear enough.

“See now, this is why I stay off Twitter,” she told fans. “Just making stuff up for no reason…weekly.”


In a follow-up post, she brushed off the rumors in favor of continuing her work.

“Anyway back to filming,” she said. 

Challengers, the mid-production film Zendaya referenced in her IG updates on Wednesday, is directed by acclaimed Call Me By Your Name and We Are Who We Are filmmaker Luca Guadagnino. Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor also star.


As Page Six and others have noted in recent reports, some fans had boarded the unfounded pregnancy rumors train due, in large part, to a TikTok prank of sorts featuring a fake ultrasound. Page Six, of course, is also the tabloid responsible for last summer’s publication of photos showing Zendaya and Tom Holland enjoying a should-be-private moment in a car.

At the top of this month, Zendaya shared a special message marking her Spider-Man co-star’s 26th birthday. “Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest,” she said, sharing a photo of the two.

Meanwhile, the pregnancy rumors also spurred a response on Wednesday from Lil Nas X, who joked he was “about to congratulate zendaya via dm about a baby that doesn’t exist” and blamed Twitter for the confusion.
