Any true Gilmore Girls fan will know that Lorelai and Rory Gilmore basically subsist on a diet of Mallomars, pizza, and pop tarts. Basically, healthy food is their enemy (opens in new tab) and has no place on the show—except when Lorelai is pregnant. When she's pregnant, she craves apples.

With that in mind, please take a look at the photo posted by the Netflix's Gilmore Girls (opens in new tab) Instagram account.

Fact: Lorelai only consumes apples when she's pregnant. We know this thanks to the below conversation with Rory, when Lorelai thought she was carrying Luke's baby.

Lorelai: "I just ate an apple."

Rory: "Uh oh."

Lorelai: "Yeah, and I liked it. My body is telling me something..."

In conclusion, if Lorelai only eats apples when she's pregnant, and there's an apple in this picture, oh my god what does it all mean?!?!?

Is now a good time to remind everyone that one time Lorelai said this? "You've got to figure, if he shoots, he scores." Just saying.
