Charli D'Amelio, the 18-year-old TikTok star, is in the news once more due to pregnancy rumors about her making rounds on the internet. The rumors began circulating when a fake account on TikTok, posing as the popular teenager, created several videos claiming that Charli D'Amelio is pregnant.

However, as reported by HITC, it must be noted that D'Amelio is not pregnant.

The rumors about TikTok celebrity Charli D' Amelio being pregnant began when a fake account with the username @charlidameliohere0 shared a number of videos, including a fake scan photo and pictures of a baby bump. The account then made the false claim that the teenager was expecting her first child.

The videos that were circulating about her pregnancy showed her in a floral dress with Landon, claiming that she was only three weeks along. Notably, all of this was old content from Charli's main TikTok account.

On April 28, the account was deleted. However, by then, it had managed to rake in 60,000 followers and more than thousands of views on the now-deleted videos.

However, before the fake account got deleted, it raised eyebrows on social media, with many taking to Twitter to try and verify the claims. As a result, the micro-blogging platform was filled with posts questioning the authenticity of the pregnancy.


Charli and Landon's dating linkup first made headlines in 2022

In June 2022, Charli and Landon were first spotted together while they were leaving one of his gigs in Los Angeles. Soon after, their dating linkup started making rounds on the internet.
