It’s kind of similar to how they thought that the actress was pregnant about two years back and turned out that she had just gained weight except now, she may not have put on weight. Then, why does she look fat? Well, did you forget that she has been that size for a long time? So, she looks bigger (she has, for a while) but that does not mean that she recently gained weight or that she’s pregnant. If you are going to make pregnancy speculations about someone, make sure that you learn their weight history because frankly, such speculations can be pretty invasive.

Jacqueline Jossa feels that way and she even told her followers to refrain from making such speculations because it was inappropriate to ask a woman if they were expecting since so many secretly struggle to conceive. Also, in her case, it’s not that she is pregnant, it’s that she’s chubby. She’s not slim because that’s not her body type. So, just because she is not thin and looks heavy does not mean that she has had weight gain or she is pregnant. That’s how she normally looks.

These kinds of baseless speculations are one of the reasons why the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! star gets very conscious about her ‘weight gain.’ She has talked about struggling with her weight insecurities before. There was an instance when she got nervous about a fashion shoot and said that she wasn’t feeling good about the shoot because “it was her time of the month, she was bloated, she had gained a little weight, and she didn’t have a tan on.” She eventually got over it and showed off her rolls of tummy fat confidently but she let everyone know that she was just that way.

I need you to know, I’m not a size 10 anymore, I am not a flat stomached woman that can get away with wearing jeans.

Jacqueline Jossa Underwent Weight Gain After Her First Pregnancy!

Jacqueline Jossa was that way, chubby and full-figured, but she had not always been that way.

She has talked about her transformation from being thin and fit to getting a lot bigger and curvier.

Telling the story of how Lauren Branning from EastEnders was a ‘slim, size 8’ figure before her pregnancy weight gain, she said that she didn’t initially love the change because it was a big change. Going from being 21 and a slim, size 8 to all of a sudden, a mother and a different body altogether, was not something easy to adapt to and deal with. But now, she has outgrown that phase and now loves her body, her lumps and bumps, and everything. She knows that she has two amazing kids and so, she is going to be curvy.

Jacqueline Jossa has tried several things to lose her pregnancy weight but not all women have the kind of body that easily bounces back from pregnancy weight gain. So, she never got around to being as slim as she was before but that’s fine because she now does not want to get thin but wants to settle at a comfortable weight where she feels good and confident.
