Issa Rae Hilariously Shuts Down Assertion That She’s Pregnant

Rumors surfaced that the producer/actor was expecting her first child with husband Louis Diame.

Issa Rae is not currently pregnant and has a message for those who think she is.

Rumors first circulated about the Insecure producer/actor last week after a video of her greeting her co-star Yvonne Orji surfaced on social media. Some assumed she was sporting a small baby bump because of her form-fitting outfit. In a simple tweet, however, Issa shut everything down.

“I am not pregnant, f**kyouverymuch,” she wrote. “LET A B***H EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY.”

It’s also of note that those who believed Rae was expecting her first child with husband Louis Diame from the video failed to see she was drinking champagne in it.

Rae and Diame got married last year. The Insecure creator is due to return to HBO in the near future for her new comedy series Rap Shit. A release date for it has yet to be announced.
