After Memes That Her Daughter Was Queen Elizabeth II Reincarnated Went Viral, Trisha Paytas Responded

    "I did not have my baby and there is no reincarnation of the Queen."

    There are many sentences that I, as a writer — nay, as a human being — never thought I'd have to utter. So, strap yourselves in folks: Trisha Paytas denied that she'd given birth to the reincarnation of Queen Elizabeth II.

    The memes got so much traction that Trisha herself eventually hopped on to TikTok to confirm that she was, in fact, still pregnant.

    "This was attention I did not want," she began, noting that she had been trying to keep out of the public eye when she saw her name trending on Twitter. "It just felt really weird to say anything, for a number of reasons."

    "There was a great tragedy. I'm a millennial, so it felt weird that people were memeing this death," she continued. "I just felt like an ultimate disappointment to tell people I'm still pregnant."

    Indeed, being one centimeter dilated doesn't necessarily mean that labor has started. Saying that she felt "embarrassed" by the attention, Trisha emphasized, "I did not have my baby and there is no reincarnation of the Queen."

    "Ultimately, I was sad for my baby, too — my baby's not even born and she's this joke of the internet. Please be kind to my baby, she deserves love and respect."
