The Bachelorette's Georgia Love has fired up on her Instagram page after some of her followers speculated that she may be pregnant.

Journalist Georgia was recently taken off air by Channel Seven after she sparked backlash for sharing footage of a cat in the window of an Asian restaurant alongside the caption: "Shop attendant or lunch?!".

And now, the 33-year-old has blasted people for asking her if she’s pregnant with her husband, Lee Elliott.

“Unbelievably finding myself once again fielding numerous questions about whether or not I am pregnant,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.

“Nope, still not. And nope it's not ok to ask or assume. Ever.”

Georgia continued saying: “If you think I have a baby belly, that’s just my shape.”

“If I have a ‘glow’ it’s becauseI have a good skincare routine.

“If there’s any other reason you thought to ask, stop. Think again. And remember that it is a totally unacceptable question or suggestion to ever make.”

Back in July, Georgia, who married Lee Elliott in Tasmania in March, was forced to jump into the comments section of her Instagram to call out the commenters on a video, asking them: “What the actual f***?”.

The video in question showed Georgia reporting for 7News on a pub in Port Melbourne where people can get a free pint if they’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Georgia was doing Dry July in an effort to raise money for Pancare Foundation, an Aussie charity fighting pancreatic, liver, biliary, oesophageal and stomach cancer.

However, some of her followers took it upon themselves to question Georgia about whether or not she was pregnant, despite the fact Georgia had been vocal about her reasons for participating in Dry July.

“Are you pregnant? Not because you look it but because of the vibe you’re giving,” one person asked, with Georgia simply replying: “No”.

“I’m not pregnant. The fact that you are winking suggesting I may be and you’ll be in your high horse when I announce it is so incredibly offensive. What if I was trying and really struggling? What if I’d been told I can’t have kids? What if I don’t want them? What if I had body confidence issues that you’ve just absolutely shat on in one thoughtless post? Think before you comment again,” Georgia hit back.

Georgia Love apologises after sharing ‘offensive’ video

In September, Georgia apologised after sharing an ‘offensive’ video of a cat sitting in the window of an Asian restaurant.

“Shop attendant or lunch?!” she captioned the post alongside a shocked emoji and a cry-laughing emoji.

After receiving backlash from her followers, it didn’t take long for the Seven News Melbourne presenter to delete the video and issue a lengthy apology.

“Earlier I posted a video of a cat in a restaurant window. I meant for this to be a joke about an animal being in a restaurant at lunch service time,” she began.

“I meant absolutely no insinuation about the type of animal nor the type of restaurant, but I see that my post did not come across like that and was offensive.

“I sincerely apologise for the oversight and offence I have caused. Thank you to those who called me out.

“This is what we need to make sure we are all accountable and do better. Again, I apologise from the bottom of my heart for the offence caused.”

Following a workplace investigation, Seven alerted staff that Georgia had been "counselled" and reassigned to an off-camera role "effective immediately".

"We have addressed this matter internally and disciplinary action has been taken," a Seven spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle.

"Seven does not condone this inappropriate conduct and all of our staff have the right to work in a safe, nurturing workplace free from prejudice."
