If you’ve got it, flaunt it! That’s expectant mom Tori Spelling‘s philosophy when it comes to showing off her beautiful baby bump.
The former 90210 star took to her blog ToriSpelling.com today to fight back against critics who took her to task for baring her belly in sexy swimsuits this summer.
“A few months back, I caught a lot of flack on two separate occasions for bearing my baby bump in a bikini and monokini while spending the day poolside with my family,” wrote the pregnant mom-of-three. “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!”
Encouraging all expectant moms to “embrace your growing curves and bourgeoning belly,” Tori added that she thinks she’s passing on a positive message to her kids Liam, 5, Stella, 4, and Hattie, 9 months, by showing off her shape.
“As for setting an example as a mother – please. I’m making a conscious decision 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.”
