Zoe LaVerne Gets Pregnancy Test To See If She’s Pregnant Again

Zoe LaVerne is an American TikTok influencer, YouTuber, internet personality, and singer. LaVerne gave birth to her first daughter in 2020 with her husband, Dawson Day.

It seems like LaVerne wants to get pregnant again. She took to social media to show off her pregnancy test and her desire to have a second kid. 

Is Zoe LaVerne pregnant again?

On January 25, 2023, LaVerne took to Snapchat to reveal that she might be pregnant again. She said that she had had some pregnancy symptoms lately.

As a result, she believed that there were chances that she had conceived her second baby. So, she said that she might do a pregnancy test to confirm her speculation.

She confessed she was low-key scared to do the test. But a few moments later, she took the test and uploaded a story on Snapchat saying, “my heart is racing I’m nervous lol.”

A few moments later, she posted another story to reveal that she was not pregnant. The pregnancy test showed only one line — indicating that she was not pregnant with a second kid.

LaVerne was disappointed with the result, and it seems she really wants to get pregnant again. She wrote, “i’m sad but it’s ok!! when it’s my time, it’ll be my time.”

Looking at her message, the TikToker might try to get pregnant again in the near future. Fans were unhappy with her stories since many complained that she was trying to pull a “Cody Orlove.”

Orlove was LaVerne’s former boyfriend, and the break up between the two was bad. After the split, they moved on and stayed in a relationship with other people.

Recently, Orlove took to Snapchat to upload a story of her girlfriend showing off a pregnancy test. This led many to believe that Orlove was going to be a father soon.

However, he later clarified that the test said: “not pregnant.” He noted how he got congratulatory messages from fans and followers, but the symptoms were just a “jump scare.”

Many accused him of click-baiting his fans and followers. Now, they are accusing LaVerne of the same.

Is Zoe LaVerne a bad mother?

Since LaVerne expressed her desire to give birth to a second baby, many have noted that she should not be doing so. They have complained about her being a bad mother to her first child, Emersyn. 

When she gave birth to Emersyn, the TikToker had an emergency C-section since her baby was premature, and she claimed that she almost died. Following the birth, Emersyn had to stay at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for quite some time.

For LaVerne, this meant that her income from socials was put to hold. As a result, she did not have a steady flow of income to take care of her baby.

So, she opted for the easiest mechanism to make fast money —  OnlyFans. She offered her fans and followers exclusive photos of her daughter for $15.

LaVerne told Insider selling the pictures “was a way to make money to pay for her extended stay in the hospital and spend more time and focus on her.”

However, this did not sit well with LaVerne’s fans and followers. They complained that she was a bad mother for selling the pictures of her baby.

Moreover, they pointed out that there were different types of people on the internet, and Emersyn’s pictures may be misused. Taking this as an example, many have asked LaVerne not to get pregnant again and have a second baby.

Rachael Lange Issues An Apology For Deleted Tweets Using N Word

Since January 20, 2023, Rachael Lange has been facing a massive backlash.

This happened as soon as she was seen holding hands with Dylan O’Brien. People thought she was his girlfriend, so they started researching her.

Soon, they were mortified to find out that Lange was a racist who did not hesitate to use the n word. Moreover, she admitted to being a pedophile, claiming to like “small black children.”

To make matters worse, she had now-deleted tweets about her hating Taylor Swift. O’Brien and Swift are very close, and to see O’Brien’s alleged girlfriend slut-shaming Swift was horrifying to a lot of people. 

Needless to say, Lange was called out for her actions. The model deleted tweets and blocked several users as well following the backlash.

Regardless, the damage had been done, and people demanded an apology from her. The Elite Model Management NYC  model private her Twitter and, possibly, hoped that the controversy would die down.

But since it did not, Lange took to Twitter to apologize for her actions.

Rachael Lange’s apology

On January 23, 2022, Lange apologized for her actions via a post on Twitter, claiming she was “mortified and ashamed” of her old posts.

She “wholeheartedly” apologized for the now-deleted tweets. She claimed that she was disgusted by her behavior and the way she spoke.

“I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for past tweets of mine. I am mortified and ashamed that they exist; and am truly disgusted that I ever spoke that way,” she wrote.

She admitted that she heard the people’s concerns and issued an apology for the pain she had caused. “All I can say is that I hear you all and am sorry for the pain I’ve caused and contributed to,” she wrote. 

She took responsibility and accountability for her actions and claimed that she was ignorant at the time. She promised that she was not the same anymore.

“I want to make it abundantly clear that I take full responsibility,” she explained. “I was extremely ignorant and while I do not remotely resonate with the things I once said, there is zero justification for my ever having said them.”

At last, she sincerely apologized for hurting people with her words. “I understand the significance that my words have and am deeply sorry for the hurt I have caused,” she concluded.

Reaction to Rachael Lange’s apology 

Even though Lange apologized, people were not happy with it. Many complained that her apology was insincere and that she simply did it to save her face.

Moreover, people noted that after the racist tweets and her using the n-word surfaced, Lange’s first reaction was to delete the tweets. Not only that, but she also blocked the people who called her out.

The netizens pointed out that this was Lange’s mechanism to hide her dirty past. They questioned the model and why was her first approach to delete the tweets and not issue an apology sincerely. 

After apologizing, Lange has not responded to anything on any platform.
