Lara Bingle posts an instagram photo of herself in a pool in a bikini with a belly and everyone is now saying the pregnancy is confirmed. She might be pregnant but she does not look like she is due in February or March if going by the start date of the rumours which was in June last year.  If the media did not salivate over Lara’s cryptic social media posts maybe she would stop posting them. But we do and they get clicks so Lara cleverly uses the interest in her to gain publicity. (Source: Lara’s Instagram)
