Dua Lipa has confirmed she is not pregnant after a cryptic Instagram post sparked rumours she was expecting.

The 25-year-old singer shared a picture to the social media platform last week with an unusual caption which included a baby's bottle emoji alongside sparkles and an angel, leading to speculation she was pregnant.

Following the interesting post, which sparked hundreds of comments from fans, the emojis were quickly deleted.

The singer, who is dating model Anwar Hadid, dismissed the rumours on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during a recent interview.

She said: "I like finding little random emojis, like a little baby bottle or angels and sparkles. Random.

"I really didn’t think this through and I posted it and then I look at the comments and somebody says, 'is she pregnant?’ And I look at the picture, I look at the comment, I look at the picture, I look at the comment, and I’m like, ‘surely i don’t look pregnant?’

"And then I see that people have been writing stories saying that I posted some cryptic message that I might be announcing my pregnancy. And I’m just like, ‘oh my God, these emojis have come to bite me in the ar*e.'"

The British chart-topper, who made a virtual appearance on Kimmel, added: "I’m not pregnant, just to clear it up."

Lipa said she "occasionally" reads the comments on social media, saying "sometimes it’s nice stuff, sometimes it’s not so nice stuff".

"It doesn’t bother me too much," she added.

Lipa is nominated for six Grammys ahead of March’s delayed ceremony, including nods for album, song and record of the year.

She said she would "love" to perform at the ceremony, which was pushed back from January due to the spiralling Covid-19 case numbers in Los Angeles.

"I’m really excited about it, it’s just nerve-wracking thinking about it. It’s such a massive honour."

Discussing the prospect of performing at the ceremony, she added: "Hopefully I’ll get the chance to do something special for the Grammys."
