''It's still not okay to ask or assume.''

Georgia Love has weighed in on pregnancy rumours and taken a swipe at body shamers who assumed she was expecting based on her "shape".
The former Bachelorette star, who found love on the show with now-husband Lee Elliott, cleared up speculation she was pregnant, saying it's "still not ok to ask or assume".

"Unbelievably finding myself once again fielding numerous questions about whether or not I'm pregnant. Nope, still not," she wrote on Instagram.
"If you think I have a baby belly, that's just my shape. If I have a 'glow' it's because I have a good skincare routine.
"If there's any other reason you thought to ask, stop. Think again."
The journalist said inquiring about her pregnancy status is a "totally unacceptable question or suggestion to ever make".
Earlier this year when Georgia quit alcohol for Dry July, she revealed to sister site WHO that once she tied the knot with Lee, she was continuously badgered about falling pregnant.
"The fact that we're married now, we get people saying 'When do you want to start a family?'" she said at the time.
"I don't know if Lee gets it so much individually but certainly when you're a female, especially one who's just been married and you're openly saying you're not drinking alcohol everyone assumes. When you've had a big lunch or wearing a felt coat that sits out away from your stomach everyone assumes."
Georgia said she wanted the conversation to change when it comes to pregnancy and fertility.
"There are so many people and people close to me who are going through really difficult fertility journeys and battles and any talk of pregnancy and why or why aren't you pregnant is really really offensive, triggering and hurtful to them," she says.

"We're not trying to get pregnant at the moment so it's not an offence to me directly but I think the conversation of asking people if they're pregnant, when they're going to be pregnant and if they want kids at all is offensive.
"It just needs to be learnt and taught that it's never ok to ask anyone if they're pregnant or when they're planning to be.
The 33-year-old said that until a woman tells people she is pregnant. it's "just no one else's business."
