The 25-years-old actress claimed that she suffered from depression which led her to gain some extra pounds. Additionally, some fans wonder if the Riverdale star is pregnant in 2022.

Regardless of the path you choose, everything happens at its own pace. It becomes obvious that, by the time Natalie reaches the end of her journey, both of their lives have come full circle.
The role of Natalie is played by Lili Reinhart. Many viewers have speculated that the 25-year-old actress looks a little heavier compared to the last time we saw her on screen. While some fans wonder if she is pregnant in real life as well, others are currently seeking information about her weight gain journey. Let's find it out.
