Supermodel Hailey Bieber has a belly pudge, but contrary to rumors in the headlines, it’s not a baby bump — it’s an ovarian cyst the size of an apple.
Bieber posted an Instagram story that included a photograph of herself with her shirt lifted, exposing her belly.
“Not a baby,” she wrote on the photograph. “I have a cyst on my ovary the size of an apple,” she said. Bieber then went on to provide some medical information to her curious fans. “It’s painful and achy and makes me feel nauseous and bloated and crampy and emotional,” she said.

After clearing up the rumors and providing an explanation for the swelling in her belly, Bieber offered up a few more details and became relatable to fans across the globe that may be facing a similar situation.
“I don’t have endometriosis or PCOS but I have gotten an ovarian cyst a few times and it’s never fun,” the supermodel said.
26-year-old Bieber then offered words of encouragement to her 49.3 million followers. (RELATED: Jay Leno Returns To The Stage 2 Weeks After Suffering 3rd Degree Burns)

“Anyways…I’m sure a lot of you can overly relate and understand,” she wrote. “We got this.”
Both Hailey and her husband Justin Bieber have faced struggles with their health in 2022. Early in 2022, a blood clot sent Hailey to the emergency room with stroke-like symptoms, according to TMZ. Justin later canceled his tour after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, according to CNN.
