Tess Holliday continues to slay pregnancy.
On Thursday, March 17, the plus-size model shared a picture of herself wearing nothing but lacy underwear and a hiked-up T-shirt to reveal her growing bump. “Every time I look at my tummy, I’m reminded at how amazing my body is. Even though I’ve had a baby before, I didn’t love myself entirely … So now every kick, every pain, is incredible to me,” Holliday wrote. “I get constantly shamed & criticized for existing in this body, but the problem isn’t my size, it’s others' inability to comprehend that beauty doesn’t come pre packaged in one size.”
The size-22 beauty continued: “I’m embracing my stomach getting bigger, stretch marks, & loving this little life I’m growing.”

Holliday is expecting her first child (she isn’t revealing the sex!) with her partner of four years, Nick Holliday, in June. She is already the mom of son Rylee, 10, from a previous relationship.
The social media star, 30, posted a photo of herself in a bikini while vacationing in Palm Springs, California, on Tuesday, March 15. Her hashtag? “#effyourbeautystandards.”
“I’m gonna be, like, 80 and still in a bikini!” Holliday told Us Weekly on March 4. “I feel like if you’re going to brave a bikini, why not do it when you’re pregnant, because that’s the time that you don’t have to worry about what your stomach looks like. You can just enjoy what your body is doing and embrace it!”
