Cyntoia Brown wants to silence pregnancy rumors for once and for all.

The new author took to Instagram to share a video of her and her husband Jamie Long opening a gift basket with baby clothes during their recent stay at a hotel.

Jamie picked up the tiny clothes saying, “This is getting out of control!” Cyntoia joked, “I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat!” Long reassured his wife saying, “You ain’t fat…”

Brown posted the playful moment with the caption, “Too funny! For the record, once again… I AM NOT PREGNANT!!!”


The rumors sparked on social media when Cyntoia posted this couple’s photo to the gram with her husband holding her stomach.


While the two aren’t expanding their family any time soon, they both are enjoying being married and Cyntoia’s new life outside of prison. The couple wed while Cyntoia was incarcerated for killing a man who was allegedly sex trafficking her. Cyntoia was released from jail on August 7th, and has since went on a press tour promoting her new book, “Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System.”

Cyntoia built rapport with her husband while she was in jail when Jamie started to send her letters. During an appearance on TODAY, Jamie told the hosts that the Lord told him to take his letters and burn the edges of the paper. The small gesture ultimately caught Cyntoia’s attention.

“I had never had a letter like that, and it’s crazy that something like that is what stuck out but it did. So I decided, ‘I’m gonna write him back.’ And of course he was really cute.” Brown said of their early courtship.
