Women Are Proudly Flaunting Their Food Babies In A Relatable Twitter Thread

Everyone knows what a food baby is, right? No? Okay, let me explain.

You know how you get that little round tummy after indulging in a huge meal?

While it looks like you're expecting a bundle of joy, that bump is really a food baby. Still cute and a lot less work than a real baby.

A viral Twitter thread has people showing off their food babies and honestly, it is very relatable.

Everyone knows the feeling of having a food baby.


I can confirm that I've cradled a burrito like this before.

Once you've eaten that burrito and you're sporting a bump, have you ever gone to check it out in the mirror?

Yes, you have, and if you say otherwise, I'll know you're lying.

Well this all started with one tweet from Twitter user @itsjustfaitmah.

She posted a picture of her food baby bump and it quickly caught the internet's eye. No, Fatimah, you're not alone. I do this. All. The. Time.

It turns out a lot of people do this.

Okay, but imagine throwing yourself a shower for your food baby? That would be unreal. Plus, you would get gifts you actually want and probably more food, tbh.

People were waiting for this thread.

It's so reassuring when you see people doing the same weird things that you do. Food babies could be the thing that truly unites the internet.

Instead of a gender, we can classify the bumps based on their food origin.

This one just happens to be a Nando's baby. Awwww! It could have a nursery full of chicken pictures and peri-peri sauce!

Some people even took this opportunity to troll their parents.

I'm not gonna lie, a food baby looks remarkably like a real baby bump. If you want to scare your parents, text them a pic of your bump and just wait.

Even the guys couldn't wait to get in on this.

The beauty of food babies is that everyone can have one. Congrats to this expecting papa. Loving the maternity-inspired photos, btw!

I don't know about you, but I am loving all these food baby pics.
