Tori Spelling is not shy to expose her baby bump in a bikini and she wants the world to know it. The celebrity mom has recently taken to her blog to lash back at critics who have criticized her for parading her growing baby bump in an itsy bitsy bikini in front of the paparazzi cameras (hey, if you’ve got it, why not flaunt it!). Here’s what Tori writes:
I have to say, I’m super proud of my bump. Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that’s the greatest gift a woman can experience? 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. I call it BUMP PROUD! Embrace your growing curves and bourgeoning belly.
Plus, we are hard at work baking a baby. It’s not easy! It’s tough. We have aches and pains and things happen to our bodies we never imagined, so we should have the same right – if not more – to dress how we want without judgment. Plus, I would wear either of those bathing suits before pregnancy (and I have! Plus, the monokini is vintage and 70’s crochet chic) so why shouldn’t I be able to now just because I have a big baby belly?
And, as for setting an example as a mother- please. I’m making a conscious choice to show my daughters that they can express themselves and be proud as a woman of their bodies. 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.
