"Bachelor in Paradise" stars Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt got married last week and fans were quick to speculate that Pitt was pregnant, which was why the couple decided to tie the knot.

However, the couple denied the rumors. Amabile and Pitt, in a video shared on YouTube, answered fans' questions Thursday.

"I'm not [pregnant]," Amabile joked and Pitt quickly chimed in, "I'm not either."

The couple had an intimate wedding ceremony at the New York Courthouse on Oct. 27. Pitt said after the wedding footage was shared on YouTube, a lot of people asked her if she was pregnant. She said it "makes sense," adding, "People are wondering if we had a shotgun wedding because I'm pregnant. I'm not pregnant."

The couple also spoke about their marriage on the "Click Bait with Bachelor Nation" podcast Thursday, revealing why they did a courthouse wedding.

"We started the wedding planning process and we were like, 'This is gonna take a while. Why don't we knock out the marriage thing?'" Amabile said. "We thought it would be fun. We had some friends that did it."

He added, "We thought we were going to be able to do it over Zoom, but that changed since COVID, so you can't do that anymore."

The couple shared that they began to think about their marriage soon after their engagement party in August. "After our engagement party is when we kind of switched focus to wedding, marriage stuff," Pitt explained. "That's kind of when we started talking about doing this."

Pitt also shared how many fans assumed that it was a one-day decision.

"A lot of people thought that we woke up that morning and were like, 'Let's go get married today!' But there's multiple steps you have to do in advance," Pitt explained. "It was a three-week process from when we first Googled it online to actually getting married."

The couple first met on the sets of "Bachelor in Paradise" in August last year. The couple stayed in a long-distance relationship for months before they decided to move in together in March.
