    The Rumours Of This Celeb Being Pregnant Are Proof Women Can't Fucking Win

    When she's one size she's "too thin", and when she's put on weight she's "pregnant". Sigh.

    You're probably aware of the talented and beautiful goddess that is Cheryl.

    And if you are, you'll also be aware of the fact that she has been in the public eye for 15 years now. In that time, she has rocked many, many different looks.

    But one thing has remained: an absolute goddamn fascination with her body.

    You may remember that during Cheryl's last stint on The X Factor she was, quite frankly, body-shamed to fuck, with everyone saying she was "too thin".

    Cheryl Cole is too thin ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ท

    I'm sorry, but Cheryl Fernando Versace needs to eat a few pies. She's wasting away. Her face is too thin and gaunt

    Her weight was discussed and speculated upon every week for months. This Facebook post ended up being shared 6,000 times and generated over 20,000 likes.

    In fact, the speculation and abuse even led to her writing an impassioned Instagram post about body-shaming, before making her account private.

    She wrote:

    I am so sick and tired of it being OK to call somebody too thin or โ€œa bag of bones.โ€ I would never dream of calling someone too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake. Whatโ€™s the difference? You have no idea what I have been through. Just loosing [sic] my father in law v recently and everything that comes with that. Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone. I am so f sick of people thinking itโ€™s ok to be mean or body shame anyone. And itโ€™s woman on woman. Have some respect.

    Now, almost a year later, Cheryl is in a new, happy relationship with former One Direction boy-bander Liam Payne.

    And when the pair stepped out looking blissfully happy in May, people were quick to suggest that a healthy and glowing Cheryl was displaying a ~baby bump~.

    I mean, that's how I look after a bowl of pasta, but sure.

    Cheryl Cole or what ever her last name is looks pregnant.๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Cheryl looks like she has a tiny baby bump just saying ๐Ÿค—if she is pregnant I'll be so happy for them though

    And this week, rumours of pregnancy have ramped up to an uncontrollable degree, after L'Orรฉal released this advert starring Cheryl.

    L'Oreal

    People immediately began commenting on her "fuller face" and said that it meant she was pregnant.

    L'Oreal

    I honestly think Cheryl could be pregnant. I mean she was extremely puffy in that Loreal ad & has been completely a-wall since the ad..

    It didn't take long for the story to be picked up absolutely every-fucking-where.

    Liam has sent everyone into a tailspin by updating his Twitter bio to read: "The luckiest man in the world." Many people think this points toward baby news.

    Now, let's get one thing straight: Cheryl could very well be pregnant. She's made no secret in the past that she'd love to have children. And she and Liam recently adopted a puppy together and revealed it had become the latest "family member."

    But the point is that she literally can't win. When she's one size she's told she's "too thin". And when she puts weight on, everyone speculates that she's "pregnant".

    ITV

    Literally this.

    Cheryl is gaunt. Must be eating disorder. Cheryl has a "fuller face". Must be pregnant. Would ye ever leave the poor woman alone !

    And also this.

    Not only that, the poor woman can't win...one minute she's 'too thin' the next she's 'fuller in the face, so she must be pregnant' ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

    Maybe she's just happy and healthy?

    Just because Cheryl has a fuller face DOES NOT mean she's pregnant. She might be just healthy and happy. Leave the poor woman alone.๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

    And it shouldn't be ignored that the intense scrutiny of her body has an impact on all women.

    Cheryl Cole appears in an advert with a "fuller" face and its immediately rumoured she's pregnant๐Ÿ˜‘ no wonder so many girls starve themselves

    For real.

    Cheryl Cole pictured looking *slightly* fuller of face and she's immediately branded pregnant. THIS IS WHY GIRLS HAVE EATING DISORDERS.

    If Cheryl is pregnant, then yay! But let's wait for her to announce it.

    ITV

    And until then, it would be nice if we could just ๐Ÿ‘ let ๐Ÿ‘ women ๐Ÿ‘ live.

    So people think Cheryl is pregnant because of a "fuller face". Probably the same people that slagged her off for being too thin

    Over and out.
