On April 1st, the star pranked her fans by telling them she is pregnant with her sixth child.
After a number of fans wondered if she was actually pregnant due to the announcement being shared on the pranking holiday, Tori revealed she is not actually pregnant in an Instagram post on Friday.
In a black and white text post, Tori began: “Every week, magazine and press outlets ask if I am pregnant. To set the record straight, I am not. The fact is, after my fifth baby, my body didn’t bounce back like it had before. That’s when the constant questions of ‘yet another’ pregnancy first began.
“I feel like I have to constantly defend my body when instead, I should be honoring it for the miracle of life it gave me five times.”

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star continued by writing that she knows “pregnancy is an extreme blessing” and “would never intentionally poke fun at losing a child or not being able to carry one. I myself have miscarried.”
Tori concluded in the post: “My post was simply to turn the tables for once on the press. They constantly create wild and often hurtful stories about me, my body, and my family.
“For those of you that are hurt, I hear you. I love you. I welcome your stories and I will try my best to support you. Please accept this as a virtual hug to my entire community. T xoxo.”
