Tori Spelling has is one proud mama, especially when it comes to flaunting her figure. Lately, however, the actress and mom-to-be has received some serious backlash after photos of her in a belly-bearing bikini surfaced. Commenters called Tori a “trashy hooker,” suggested that she “cover that bump up,” and “have a little more modesty while she’s pregnant.”
But Tori thinks the haters need to think again.
In response to the feedback, the mom of two (soon to be three) posted a new photo on her website, in which she’s rocking a bikini with “bump proud” written across her belly. The photo accompanies a post where Tori encourages people to be more accepting of a pregnant women’s physique.
“Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that’s the greatest gift a woman can experience?” the star wrote. “A pregnant woman in any shape or size is beautiful! Pregnancy is an amazing journey and we preggers should be able to show it off.”
Tori also address people who claimed she was setting a bad example for other women, especially her daughters Stella (4-years-old) and Hattie (10-months-old).
“I’m making a conscious choice to show my daughters that they can express themselves and be proud as a woman of their bodies,” she wrote. “I don't ever want them to think that they should be ashamed of or self-conscious of their bodies, no matter what shape it's in.”
