That timeline didn't add up, but it didn't stop fans from feeling completely shook that the 27-year-old could be pregnant. But the singer's caption cleared it up quickly. The faux bump was actually created for her part in the final season of Will and Grace, a show she is famously obsessed with.
Some fans joked that the pregnancy photo was a clever way to announce new music, and they weren't entirely wrong. Lovato confirmed on her Instagram Story that she's working on her seventh studio album.
She may not be pregnant with a child, but she is pregnant with a new album!
Fans joked that the pregnancy post wasn't about a baby at all, but about her new music. The artist teased that "This is true" and that D7 is on the way. But, of course, the post also had to do with her Will and Grace character.
Some of the comments were about how Lovato made the bump believable.
Ellen Show regular Kalen Allen believed Lovato's post for a second. Meanwhile, her manager, Scooter Braun, jokingly congratulated the star, and her now costar Sean Hayes was more focused on her pregnancy style.
It would be so on-brand for Lovato to drop an announcement as big as pregnancy out of the blue, that's why it was believable. But no news yet. Instead, it's time to start thinking about Lovato's character on the final Will and Grace season. I can't wait to see Lovato flex her acting muscle once again.
