Stewart also voiced his defense of the rumor. To defend his statement, the fan tried to justify it by saying, “It says right here on the internet.” Pruett’s husband asserted, “She is not pregnant.” In order to get to the root of the problem, Pruett asked the individual, about the origin of the news, “Where?

He stated, “I’ve been asking myself that literally the last seven days. I’ve come to a solution on that. I’m way more scared about starting a family, I can barely take care of myself. I’ve joked around that if and when that happens, if this kid can make it to three years old on its own, it’s got a shot at surviving.”

“I don’t have any experience as a parent but I have a lot of driving and this is definitely one of the biggest jumps I’ve ever made in my driving career, but at least I have a little bit of an idea and what’s going on.”
