In the early morning hours of January 10, Ivanka Trump posted a birthday message to her husband, Jared Kushner, on Instagram.

Her caption originally read:

Happy birthday, Jared! Thank you for being the most amazing father, husband, and best friend I could have dreamed of. Here’s to you!

However, while the point of the post was to celebrate Jared, people couldn’t help but notice Ivanka’s pregnant in the picture.

Unclear of what that meant, fans began asking Ivanka if she was pregnant with their fourth child in the comments:

Pregnant again?

Again, she is pregnant?

Aw congratulations Happy birthday!! God bless you

Pregnant again :O

Omg!!! Are you pregnant or is this a throwback?!! If so congrats!!!! So beautiful!!!


God bless you! Congratulations!!!!

Is she pregnant again???

Is she pregnant again? Wow. God bless

I did not know you were pregnant?

Baby 4 coming soon?

Once Ivanka realized it was causing her fans massive confusion, the president’s eldest daughter took a moment to clarify things with a simple hashtag:

Ivanka originally posted the photograph on January 1, 2016, when she was pregnant with her youngest son, Theodore.

After clarifying her photo was, in fact, a throwback, fans admitted to feeling “played” by the choice of photo:

I thought there was another baby! Ugh played.

It looks like those waiting for Kushner baby number 4 will have to keep holding onto hope.
