Georgia Love says she’s ‘not trying to get pregnant at the moment’ after being bombarded with ‘offensive’ questions about why she’s not drinking

Georgia Love has insisted she is ‘not trying to get pregnant’ after she was bombarded with questions following a Channel Seven news report.

The Bachelorette star, 32, blasted trolls after they commented presumptuous queries as to why she wasn’t drinking while wearing an oversized trench coat during a 7NEWS segment on Monday.

Speaking to Who Magazine this week, Georgia insisted: ‘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.’

She added that many people are going through hidden fertility struggles, and so to ask if someone is pregnant could be ‘triggering and hurtful’.

Georgia, who married Lee Elliott in March this year, added: ‘When you’ve had a big lunch or wearing a felt coat that sits out away from your stomach, everyone assumes.’

She said that it needs to be taught that it’s ‘never ok to ask anyone if they’re pregnant or planning to be’, as it’s just ‘no one else’s business’.

Georgia is currently doing Dry July, where she abstains from alcohol for a month to raise funds for pancreatic cancer charity Pancare – the disease her mum died from four years earlier.

Earlier this week, a number of trolls hit her comments section to say she must be taking part in the charitable cause due to ‘pregnancy’ – causing her to respond directly online.

‘Outrageous when the caption is about you doing Dry July, as have been many of your posts lately!’ one troll wrote.

‘No, just outrageous to ask at all,’ Georgia responded, while saying to another: ‘How am I clearly pregnant? Are you saying I look like I have a big belly?

‘And/or are you suggesting I am lying about doing Dry July for the sole purpose of raising funds and awareness for the cancer that killed my mum?’

Slamming rumours: Another posed the same question adding 'not because you look it, but because of the video you're giving' - with Georgia responding with a blunt: 'No'

Georgia has long been plagued by pregnancy rumours, first brushing off the speculation by fans in 2017 by claiming she had just had a ‘big breakfast’.

The following year, Georgia said: ‘I’m not fat, I’m not a big girl’ in response to a new surge of rumours.

Georgia chose Lee in the finale of The Bachelorette in 2016 and the pair announced their engagement in 2019.

The duo tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in Tasmania in March this year.
