Nova’s mama faced pregnancy rumors quite a few times throughout 2016, and in November, they seemed to be true when she posted this photo of herself and two of her co-stars wearing safe sex t-shirts.

But she put the kibosh on the gossip quickly, saying in a statement, “After just recovering from postpartum depression coupled with the fact that I’m on birth control, Tyler and I are not and will not be expecting for a few more years.”

This Amber Portwood rumor was one of the most salacious yet — not only did the report claim her fiancé, Matt Baier, got her pregnant, but that she suffered a miscarriage because she was back on drugs.

The couple went on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s talk show to refute both the rumors, saying simply, “that’s not true at all.”

The fan favorite made it very clear she wanted to start a family with Cole DeBoer immediately after they got married in October 2016.

But to everyone's surprise, Chelsea got knocked up a few months before their wedding, announcing the pregnancy in July and the baby's sex — it's a boy! — that November. Watson arrived a few weeks ahead of his due date in January 2017.

Technically Chelsea announced that she was pregnant before people could speculate, but we love her all the more for it.

Rumors first circulated in May 2016 that Jenelle and her boyfriend, David Eason, were expecting when she was spotted by a fan at Target sporting what seemed to be a clear baby bump.

The speculation persisted all summer — social media pics that were cut off below the chest didn’t help — but Jenelle denied it time and time again.

Finally, though, in late August, she and David announced her pregnancy, the baby’s sex (girl), name (Ensley) and due date (January 28) all in one fell swoop.

But Jenelle eventually quashed the rumors by taking a pregnancy test live with Wetpaint, and has sworn off having any more kiddos.
