The image, which was put up by friend and fellow Bachelor star Natalie Holmberg, appeared to many to be posed like a classic ‘family news’ reveal photo, but Tara confirmed to WHO this is not the case.
"I actually ate McDonalds, KFC and pizza all in the one day," she told WHO. "I was showing Natalie how bloated I was, but was smiling because I was so content with the way the food tasted."
Whatever the intention of the photo – which depicted Tara in a flowing dress and posed next to the words, "Oh baby!" - it was later deleted. But the Internet is forever!
Tara, 28 introduced her plumber boyfriend of six months, Nick Shepardson, to her parents over Christmas.
It’s been all smiles for Tara of late, after she famously failed to find love with Matty J, and split with Bachelor in Paradise love interest Sam Cochrane after an engagement.
