Emily Ratajkowski shut down claims she got lip injections while pregnant as she admits it has been ‘weird’ to have her ‘body change so much’
Emily Ratajkowski denied claims that she has undergone any cosmetic procedures to enhance her pout, which has been looking significantly fuller the past few months.
In response to a sea of lip injection accusations over weekend, the 29-year-old supermodel reminded her 27million followers that swelling is a normal part of pregnancy throughout the entire body.
‘I’ve never had lip injections (no judging folks who do — y’all look great!) but you can’t even get injections when you’re pregnant!’ she wrote on her Instagram Story.

She explained: ‘A woman’s blood volume increases 50% which is why ladies can get a little puffy in the face and lips during pregnancy.’
While the symptom isn’t very common, according to Parents, ‘some moms-to-be do experience larger lips,’ but they typically deflate within a few months of giving birth.
The effects of lip injections, while with child, are unknown and the FDA recommends against it.
Further addressing critics, who keep saying she has ‘been pregnant forever’, the Gone Girl star pointed out it has only been three months since she broke the news.

‘LOL, yes, pregnancy lasts for 40 weeks which can definitely feel like a long time, but I announced halfway into my pregnancy,’ she quipped.
Ratajkowski, who is expecting her first child with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, also revealed the experience has ‘weirdly gone by very quickly’ to her.
Additionally, she noted that it’s been ‘weird’ to have her ‘body change so much in a matter of months.’

‘I have a whole new appreciation for what my body can do and what is beautiful and I’m gonna celebrate it on here when I feel like it,’ she concluded.
Ratajkowski has always had a noticeably plump pout since propelling to stardom in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines music video nearly eight years ago, and even inspired Charlotte Tilbury to name a shade of lipstick ‘Hot Emily’ after her.
During her pregnancy the Gone Girl actress has also been working on an upcoming book of essays that currently has the title My Body.

She announced her baby news on the cover of Vogue and wrote an essay inside about why she will not declare the gender.
‘When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after: ‘Congratulations’ is almost always ‘Do you know what you want?” she said.
‘We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then,’ she shared, admitting that ‘everyone laughs at this.’
