*On Friday, Gabrielle Union took to Twitter to shut down speculation that she was hiding a pregnancy. The “Being Mary Jane” star, who is married to NBA player Dwyane Wade, was the center of pregnancy rumors this week after fans began questioning if she was concealing a baby bump underneath her gown following the amfAR Gala. As it turns out, she was simply experiencing the usual symptoms of a woman on her period.
Union was slightly annoyed by the pregnancy gossip so she took to Twitter to snap back. She wrote:
“Lmaooo… Newsflash! Women have these things called periods. On occasion there is bloating…and breathing. Meanwhile I’m enjoying cocktails,” she wrote, adding, “Just becuz you say it and say it and say it and say it…doesn’t make it true or real. Enjoy the weekend folks, I’ll be at the bar,” accompanied by nearly a dozen laughing emjois.

Union followed up with:
“Didn’t realize my uterus needed a publicist to account for its comings & goings (uterus hijinks! Whatta rascal) #periodwatch #bloatnotababy,” she continued. “I know some are disappointed but ANY news abt my uterus will be shared by me. PS It’s weird to create fake pregnancies for ppl #periodwatch.” Finally, she concluded, “I also have never responded to the COUNTLESS fake pregnancies I’ve been given over the years but I just SO love writing ‘uterus’ UTERUS JOY!”
Union and Wade have been married since August 2014, and they allowed cameras to document their time getting ready together before they hit the red carpet at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in NYC last Thursday night. Inside, the couple presented an award and mingled with influencers such Naomi Campbell, Karrueche Tran, and “Dancing With the Stars” winner Nyle DiMarco.
