Love Island’s Millie Shuts Down Pregnancy Rumours After Fans Comment On Her Weight

"Just think about how that someone could take that and it could potentially hurt.”

Love Island star and winner of the 2021 season Millie Court has opened up online about fans commenting on her weight, resulting in Millie receiving questions about whether or not she’s pregnant.

Sharing a screenshot of a DM from a follower who asked if she’s pregnant, Millie wrote: “I’ve been getting a lot of these messages and comments recently…

“NO I am not pregnant although one day hopefully I will be and I’m sure it’ll be one of the happiest days of my life but being a woman, especially in the public eye, I’ve now experienced what it’s like to be absolutely torn apart by the way you look, dress, act, etc, and it can be hard on someone to be constantly judged.”

She continued: “I personally feel like I am a very strong girl so those words don’t often hurt me, and neither does this. Hence why I am trying my best to show everyone you are beautiful no matter what, without all the editing and filters.

“But if you have made this comment to someone, just think about how that someone could take that and it could potentially hurt.

“This is of course indicating that someone’s put on weight and almost feels like a nicer way to say, are you pregnant, or are you just packing on the pounds?”

Speaking about her own relationship with her body, Millie continued: “I’ve always been [before Love Island] fluctuating between a size 8 and 10, but most of the time a size 10. I was so happy with the way I looked, I didn’t think twice about it.

“On the weeks leading up to Love Island, I felt the need to lose several pounds because I knew I was going to be surrounded by beautiful slim girls. I worked out every single day and ate salad for lunch and to tell you the truth I was miserable whilst doing it.”

Continuing, Millie shared, “I’d changed whilst I was on the show for several reasons that’s probably for another story time. But I went from a size 10 to a 6, and it’s the smallest I’ve ever been as a young adult.

“Because of my height, this made me look unhealthily skinny, of which I was (not eating barely anything, feeling ill all the time, tired, dizzy etc) and I remember looking at myself, I’d lost my boobs and my bum and those curves I once had and I MISSED them.”

Going on to say that what matters is how you feel about your own body, she shared, “Anyway the point of this is, since coming out of Love Island, I’ve found my love for my food again and yes I’m getting back to my usual size.

“But I love being this way and I just want you all to know that if you love your body and the way that you are, then that is THE most important thing. We’re all different shapes and sizes, each size perfect in our own way.”

“But please don’t get stuck to the beauty standard of ‘perfection’. Don’t feel the pressure to need to be like some of the models we see on the runway because I know being in this job and in the limelight, those pressures are extremely heightened.

“And today I’m letting go of that pressure and telling you all I am perfectly happy the way I am.”
