Behati Prinsloo shuts down pregnancy rumours

Behati Prinsloo has denied she is pregnant with her third child.

The model, who is married to Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, posted a blurry black-and-white photo without a caption on her Instagram page on Monday.

Soon, fans began to interpret it as a close-up image of a sonogram, with many of them asking for confirmation that she's expecting or offering up congratulations in the comments.

But Behati later returned to the site and added a caption in which she explained that the blurry snap was taken by her three-year-old daughter Dusty Rose and it depicts her sweatpants.

"Guys. This is not an ultrasound lol (laugh out loud)," she wrote. "Dusty got hold of my phone and somehow posted this picture from my photo library I thought it was weird and cool and left it up (sic). But everyone is now congratulating me on my 3rd pregnancy (crying with laughter emoji). It's a close up of my black and white splatter sweat pants!"

The 31-year-old also shared the updated post on her Instagram Stories with the message, "Wow this picture that was accidentally posted by my three-year-old today got a lot of attention haha."

Although the recent snap sparked the most speculation, followers started wondering if Behati was pregnant again following her appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in February and once more on International Women's Day earlier in March when she posted a nude photo of her clutching her baby bump in front of a background that reads, "Men shouldn't be making laws about women's bodies".

The catwalk beauty married Adam after two years of dating in 2014. They also have a two-year-old daughter named Gio Grace.
