Emily Ratajkowski directly addressed her lip injection accusers in an Instagram Story on Friday.

The pregnant model, who is expecting her first child with indie film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, snapped a straight-faced mirror selfie and wrote lengthy captions about her changing face and body.

“For anyone saying ‘you need to stop w/ the lip injections’: I’ve never had lip injections (no judging folks who do—y’all look great!) but you can’t even get injection when you’re pregnant!” Ratajkowski, 29, wrote. “A woman’s blood volume increases 50% which is why ladies can get a little puffy in the face and lips during pregnancy.”

Moreover, the long-term effects of fillers or Botox-like substances on pregnant or breastfeeding women is currently not known, according to a report from Sistine Plastic Surgery – a Pittsburgh-based plastic surgery clinic.
