Hailey Bieber Reveals Her Belly Bump Is “Not a Baby”

Hailey Bieber has had a difficult year in terms of health, and she revealed in a post that she is currently experiencing another setback.

The model shared a photo of herself in gray sweatpants and a matching sweatshirt in front of a mirror on her Instagram Story, revealing a small belly bump.

“Not a baby,” she wrote next to her stomach, before anyone could jump to conclusions.

“I have a cyst on my ovary the size of an apple,” she explained. “I don’t have endometriosis or PCOS but I have gotten an ovarian cyst a few times and it’s never fun.”

She went on to say that the condition is “painful and achey,” and that it makes her feel “nauseous, bloated, crampy, and emotional.”

She told her fans, “I’m sure a lot of you can overly relate and understand. We got this ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼.”

While we don’t know how many women have ovarian cysts, they are thought to be fairly common, with estimates indicating that around 7% of women will have an ovarian cyst at some point in their lives.

However, because not all cysts cause symptoms, these figures could be even higher. Based on CT scan data, it is estimated that between 6% and 18% of premenopausal women have a cyst that they are unaware of.

Ovarian cysts are classified into two types: simple and complex. Both develop on or within one or both ovaries. Simple cysts are filled with fluid, whereas complex cysts are frequently filled with other substances, such as blood or cells. Complex cysts are less common, but they are linked to an increased risk of cancer. These can vary in size, with guidelines indicating that they can be up to 5 cm in diameter without causing symptoms or necessitating treatment. Giant cysts measuring more than 10 cm in diameter are also possible.

Bieber was hospitalized in March after experiencing stroke-like symptoms caused by a blood clot in her brain. Despite being released the next day, she sought a second opinion from UCLA doctors after the scare, and they discovered she had a patent foramen ovale (PFO), a small flap-like opening that forms when a hole in the heart does not close after birth. They concluded that instead of being absorbed in her lungs, Bieber’s blood clot had traveled to her heart and escaped through the PFO to her brain.

In an April video posted to her YouTube channel, the Rhode founder revealed that she had to undergo heart surgery to close the flap and was recovering well.

Only three months after her surgery, Justin Bieber was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a condition caused by a varicella-zoster virus infecting a nerve in the head. Among other things, it rendered half of the “Peaches” singer’s face paralyzed. After several weeks, he recovered.
