Is Daphne Oz pregnant?

Viewers have been noticing Daphne's bump on Season 8 of MasterChef Junior — but filming for the season actually took place in 2019. At the time, Daphne was pregnant with her fourth child.

As for whether Daphne is currently pregnant, there is no evidence to indicate that she is. In fact, it seems that the star has subtly shut down pregnancy rumors by recently sharing photos of herself enjoying cocktails and other alcoholic beverages with her loved ones.

In a unique reveal involving lasagna, Daphne shared with People in March 2019 that she was expecting a daughter. The Good Dish host held a sex-reveal party, in which she and her father cut into a lasagna that contained pink-dyed cheese.

"I have never yet seen a gender reveal done this way, for myself," Daphne informed the outlet. "But this is kind of a big deal — they put this ridiculous cheesy twist on lasagna. So inside this lasagna … is either blue or pink cheesy layers. That’s how you figure out what you’re having."

In August 2019, Daphne spoke again with People and revealed that it had been her "hardest pregnancy, physically," but the Happy Cook author added that doing things to make her feel good in her skin "made a big difference."

Of being pregnant while filming MasterChef Junior, Daphne told the outlet that "being on [her] feet all the time, it can be kind of crazy." She added, "It’s been so much fun here on set that it has just flown by. It’s kept me really distracted and active."

Well, if Daphne was pregnant in 2019, when exactly did she give birth?
