There’s nothing like being pregnant for making the world and its wife feel free to comment on your body, right?
Oooh, you look MUCH bigger than 4 months.
Where on EARTH is the baby?
Yep, we’ve pretty much ALL had these comments – or variations on them – at some point during our pregnancy.
And when you’re in the public eye as a celeb, the comments can be even more critical, as US model Blac Chyna discovered recently when the mum-to-be posted pics of herself out and about on Instagram.
“She looks a mess. Girl cover up,” said one follower.
“How she get that big?” asked another.
Not one to take the criticism lying down, Blac Chyna was quick to respond to her haters.
“To all you people out there with negative comments and insecure words (obviously because you have nothing else to do but criticise the next), I AM HAVING A BABY! Exactly what do you expect to see?!” said the model.
“If I walked out in makeup and heels everyday to be beautiful to your means I WOULD BE MISERABLE AND UNHAPPY which are two vibes I refuse to transfer to my little one.”
On the other side of the coin – and the world – Australian Gold Coast self-professed “fitness junkie” Hannah Polites shared pics of her 6-month bump and got called into question for looking TOO petite and glamourous.
“I’m actually worried about the baby!” said one fan, presumably because Hannah’s looking pretty teeny.
And she got this sarcastic comment too: “Very classy! We all know what you look like naked.”
Just like Blac Chyna, Holly hit back at her critics, telling them:
“I do not take the negative comments to heart, especially when I know I am making informed decisions when it comes to nutrition and exercise in pregnancy and motherhood….For the record, doctors have told me bub is healthy.”
Fair dos to Blac Chyna and Hannah for standing their ground when it comes to the haters – we totally know you don’t need to be a celeb to get critical looks and comments when you’re pregnant, so it’s nice to see these women fighting back.
Has it happened to you and how did you feel? We’d love to know in the comments below.
