“LET A BITCH EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY,” she exclaimed on Twitter Wednesday morning, responding to recent rumors she may be expecting a baby.

In case her message was not clear, she also declared, “I am not pregnant, f–kyouverymuch.”

Last week, rumors began swirling that Rae, 37, and husband Louis Diame were expecting their first child after a video of the star sporting what some fans were convinced was a baby bump started making its rounds on Twitter.

The short video was taken on March 25 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., where Rae’s production company, Hoorae, was hosting a four-day festival to highlight “the talent of Black creatives.”

The clip showed the “Insecure” creator and star at a fancy event, dressed in a form-fitting black gown, spotting co-star star Yvonne Orji. The two women were seen approaching each other excitedly to exchange hellos, which included some shrieking, a big hug and lots of dancing.

Though Rae had a glass of champagne in her hand for the smile-evoking salutation, several internet users thought they spotted the shadow of a pregnancy belly.

“Issa Rae & husband Louis Diame are Expecting!” one person replied to the snippet, which was met with: “Oh how wonderful, congratulations!!!”

“Idk but I just saw a video of Issa Rae and it’s giving pregnant,” posted someone else.

“My friend called Issa Rae being pregnant 2 months ago,” read another tweet, which was followed by, “Issa Rae being pregnant, all cute and subtle is giving me life.”

One outlet even went so far as to say that the star’s pregnancy was “CONFIRMED!!”

Not only did Rae’s response to the rumor leave no room for interpretation, but it also elicited praise from dozens of fans.

“Issa Rae said she not pregnant…..f–kyouverymuch. Gotta use that,” remarked one supporter, as another added jokingly, “Not pregnant just eating good.”

Rae and Diame tied the knot last July in a private ceremony in the South of France.

Issa out here living her best life.
