The model and FABLife co-host announced that she and her husband, singer John Legend, are expecting their first child in a joyful post to Instagram last week. Over the weekend, Teigen playfully lamented her changing figure, captioning the image "Somebody is early to the party."
While plenty of Teigen's fans were immediately enamored with the pic, some social media users began offering unsolicited opinions about the size of Teigen's belly, saying it looked like she might be carrying twins.
Teigen, known for her opinionated and frequently funny social media musings, was quick to respond, dismissing the critics with a few well-placed emojis and telling people to mind their own business.
Please stop. I put one embryo in. I have ultrasounds every few days. I didn't announce at a week. https://t.co/v17NlZjo1n— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 18, 2015

I did IVF. One at a time. It isn't twins. I can see the damn thing. Get out of my uterus!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 18, 2015
It doesn't seem like Teigen took the tweets to heart, however. She made a few jokes about the mini scandal before metaphorically throwing up her hands and swearing off future tweets about her pregnancy.
