With just 3 months to go before giving birth to her 2nd child, plus-side model Tess Holliday, 30, is looking proud and confident as she stands poolside in a bikini soaking up the LA sun.


(Warning: there's a bit of a swear further down the page...)

In this awesome snap, which she shared on Instagram, Tess is dipping her feet in the cool waters and wearing an oh-so stylish two-piece with her almost-3rd-trimster pregnancy bump.

"6 Months preggo today (& still slayin') ??? #F***yourbeautystandards", Tess captioned her pic.

And of course, her followers are LOVING it!

"You look beautiful! As a plus-size woman, I had it in my mind that I would never be healthy enough to have a baby," said one. "Not only did I give birth at a birthing centre without doctors or drugs, I am the healthiest I've ever been my whole life! So keep doing you, Tess!!!"

"Omgee... congrats hunny," said another. "Cannot wait to see that adorable baby!!! You're so gorgeous. I love you, Tess. Sooo happy for you."

Here at MFM HQ, we can admit we're more than a teensy bit envious of everything we see here: Tess's body confidence and style, not to mention that sunshine!

This will be Tess's 1st baby with fiancé Nick Holliday. She first became a mum aged 20, to son Tylee, from a previous relationship.

All the best 2nd time around, Tess!
