Rumors about Deavan’s pregnancy started swirling last month after a social media user claimed they saw a post from the Utah native in a private Facebook Group for Korean residents.

In a screenshot of the alleged post, Deavan asked her fellow group members for advice about health insurance in Korea, explaining that she was pregnant and the health insurance policy she has did not cover her internationally. She asked how much prenatal and labor/delivery care would cost, and she also allegedly claimed she was thinking about returning to her home country so that she could receive her benefits from her provider.

Shortly after the rumors broke, Deavan took to Instagram to address the alleged leak. “I was in a private Facebook group that is based in Korea with only Korean-based people so it’s sad to see my personal stuff being leaked when it’s a group I went to for advice on life in Korea. Just shows you can’t even trust people even if it’s not even in your home country,” she wrote in a since-deleted message on her Instagram, according to a screenshot obtained by blogger John Yates.

Deavan added, “Please, out of respect, stop messaging me and asking me. I’m not going to speak about it. I trusted this group and it was my safe space for a long time. I know the person who did it and it saddens me that they did this. But I’m leaving it at that. I need time and I haven’t even told family because of how early it is, so stop messaging me about this topic.”
