While Issa Rae might’ve kept her wedding temporarily hidden from the public, she made it clear she’s not doing the same with her first pregnancy! That’s because she isn’t baking anything in her oven.
That’s right, if you thought the multi-skilled entertainer was expecting, Issa is here to let you know: this ain’t that. She took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to shoo the pregnancy rumors away.
“I am not pregnant, f*ckyouverymuch,” she tweeted. “LET A B***H EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY.”
By evening, her clarification had collected more than 68,000 likes and over 7,000 retweets. Some Twitter users shared memes, gifs and even clips of the scene in Insecure season five where Issa kicked Cabbage Patch (aka Condola) into a trash can.
Rumors Oh Rumors
So what exactly sparked the ‘baby on board’ claims? Issa herself didn’t specify. But social media detectives dug up a video clip of Issa at what appeared to be a recent party. She wore a black, sleeveless jumpsuit with a curly ponytail. As she turned to the side to run towards Insecure castmate and friend Yvonne Orji, a slight belly bump could be seen. The entire time she’s holding a champagne glass of what looks to be.a light yellow liquid.
Both Issa and Yvonne hit some dance moves and dropped it to the floor. And that was the end of the video clip. Pregnancy wasn’t mentioned at any point during the 18-second-video nor did anything in the background of the video suggest it.

A Whole Wife
As previously reported, Issa tied the knot last summer to Louis Diame! The move shocked fans because it was the first time folks learned Issa had a bae–much less a whole engagement. Sticking to her personality, the entertainment entrepreneur shared photos of her blissful day with a series of “options” describing the photos.
“A) Impromptu photo shoot in a custom @verawang dress.
B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed.
C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband. Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special.”
