While Benson appears to be pregnant in the photos, the 25-year-old actress has made it clear she is not expecting. After sharing the photographs, Benson shared a video of her “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Ian Harding caressing a fake “third trimester” bump on Twitter Thursday. She also retweeted this fan's post:

Blackburn, who stars as Benson’s character’s boyfriend Caleb Rivers on the drama series, poked fun at the pregnancy rumors. After Benson shared images of herself sporting a "first trimester" and "third trimester" baby bump, the 28-year-old posted a photo of himself sporting the apparent prosthetic bump. “Second trimester,” he captioned the image which shows Benson kissing his stomach.
“Pretty Little Liars” director Norman Buckley, who posed alongside Benson in her “third trimester” shot, also joined in on the fun. The 59-year-old shared the image of Benson’s bump on Instagram Thursday alongside the caption, “Who would have thought? And at my age!”
While Benson may not be a mom-to-be off-screen, her latest Instagram posts have made some fans question if her “Pretty Little Liars” character Hanna Marin will be having a baby next season. Could there be Haleb baby on the horizon? Fans will have to wait to find out! Season 6 of “Pretty Little Liars” premieres later this year.
