Singer Ariana Grande shared some fun photos of her dogs on Saturday, including one that sparked pregnancy speculation among her fans online. Grande posted a gallery of images, including a selfie video, two pictures of her dogs laying around with her, and a picture from her childhood. One of the pictures showed one of her dogs lying across her stomach, and some fans think this was a peek at a baby bump. Others pointed out it was likely just her rib cage.
"[Oh my God]!!!!! you are glowing!!!!" one person wrote to Grande, who replied, "u are." Meanwhile, another fan wrote, "Is it just me or is she pregnant?" Another wondered, "Your stomach on the 3rd slide?????" The pregnancy speculation also transferred to Twitter.
The speculation started just a few days after the 27-year-old "Thank U, Next" singer went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, Dalton Gomez. On June 26, she shared a collection of photos, including one with Dalton, a real estate agent in Los Angeles. The two have been dating since January and are staying together in Grande's Los Angeles home during the coronavirus pandemic, a source told PEOPLE in March. The couple also appeared in the music video for her duet with Justin Bieber, "Stuck With U."

Grande is "staying at home with friends" and taking the social distancing "very" seriously, the source told the magazine. "One of the people she is with right now is Dalton — they have been hanging out for a couple of months," the source told PEOPLE. "Ariana doesn’t want to do another public relationship so she is trying to keep this one quiet, but she seems very happy with Dalton."prevnext

Grande has also shown support for Black Lives Matter and social justice issues in recent weeks. Last month, she revealed on Twitter that she sent food and coffee trucks to voters waiting in line at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. The Courier-Journal confirmed that several food trucks arrived while residents waited to vote. Local Black Lives Matter supporters thanked Grande for her generosity on Twitter. Since then, Grande has continued posting dates for elections across the country for her 194 million Instagram followers.prevnext
