Romee Strijd has taken to social media to shut down pregnancy speculation.

The Dutch model, perhaps best known for her work with Victoria's Secret, uploaded a snap of herself in a grey sweater and matching coat on Wednesday and added in the caption: "I'm at the place in my life where running errands counts as 'Going Out.'"

However, the camera angle made Romee's stomach area appear slightly rounded - causing several fans to ask if she's expecting.

"Is she pregnant?" one user wrote in the comments section, while another queried: "Beauty! But pregnant??"

But Romee, who has been in a relationship with Laurens van Leeuwen for many years, quickly cleared up the rumours.

To one follower she replied, "Why?" and to another explained: "lol (laugh out loud), it does look like it! But it's the sweater or the pasta I had for lunch (laughing emoji)."

Elsewhere in the comments section, the blonde beauty answered other fan's questions and shared that her next post on YouTube will be about "How to wave your hair with a flat iron," and whether or not she misses the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

She responded: "Yes I do!!"

Romee first began working with the lingerie label in 2014 and was named as an Angel the following year. Yet, back in November, bosses at the brand confirmed the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show had been cancelled for 2019. Of late, the company has been hit by the growth of contemporary underwear labels like Third Love, Aerie, and Rihanna's Savage X Fenty, while company leaders have also been accused of failing to embrace diversity and inclusivity in its marketing imagery and shows.
