Plus-size model Tess Holliday is currently pregnant with her second child, but instead of enjoying these last few months before her little bundle of joy arrives, the 30-year-old has been forced to defend her changing body on Instagram.
Alongside a new photo that shows off her 32-week baby bump, Tess writes a powerful message to her haters.
"Having another baby has been a beautiful process & at times, frustrating. As I enter my 8th month, my body overall looks the same other than my belly & I'm okay with that," she shares. "What I've had to be learn to be okay with (WHICH IS NOT COOL) is the fact that people still think it's okay to comment on my body."
With remarks ranging from "you don't look pregnant" to "you must be having quadruplets," Tess admits they're all hard to hear.
"I'm part of a small minority that's telling you it's okay to not have a perfect baby bump, or not show at all, to be plus size & have a healthy child," she says, adding, "It's also okay to tell someone to f--k off when they give you unsolicited advice about what's 'best' for you & your baby."
Here's hoping the rest of Tess' pregnancy is smooth sailing — and hater free!
