17 weeks :)
I LOVE BURGERS! I LOVE PRANKS! I LOVE LIFE! About my earlier post, it was intended to be lighthearted and fun and certainly not insensitive. My heart goes out to all the women struggling with fertility. (Photo props to @bhartman @derekerdman)

Lowe wrote on his blog that his wife's Instagram was "not the place to voice those feelings."

" ... on nearly every picture Catherine posts on Instagram, she gets flooded with comments from people who tell her she looks pregnant ... it would be really tough for any woman to hear that "she looks pregnant" on a daily basis when she's not ... So that was the genesis of yesterday's post, it was playing off of the bombardment of pregnancy comments she reads every day and messing with those who post them," Lowe added in the post.

The couple married in a televised ceremony in 2014 and have said that they want children in the future.

Giudici later clarified that she wasn't pregnant in another Instagram post of a woman with a burger in her stomach. ""I LOVE BURGERS! I LOVE PRANKS! I LOVE LIFE! About my earlier post, it was intended to be lighthearted and fun and certainly not insensitive. My heart goes out to all the women struggling with fertility," she wrote.
