Kapoor had slammed pregnancy rumors last July

Last July, she quashed those rumors by sharing a snap of herself taking a sip from tea and captioned it as, "Hot water bottle and ginger tea for first day of my period (sic)," effectively putting a rest to those rumors. To recall, the couple tied the knot in 2018.
