Anyone who follows pregnant 90 Day Fiance star Paola “Pao” Mayfield on Instagram knows that the 31-year-old isn’t shy about showing off her body. But some fans thought Pao took it a little too far on Monday, November 5.
In a clip posted on Instagram, the Columbia native, who was wearing just a thong and a sports bra, turned to give viewers a view of her buttocks.
“Have some respect for yourself! You’re about to be a mother for God sakes!” wrote one woman in the comments. Added another: “Maybe U should focus more on your marriage and baby rather than your body.”
A third chided Pao for posting “porn” and advised her to have “some self respect and modesty.”

Everything is growing so much and it is not only my belly🙈 I thought it was going to be hard to see all of these changes but to be honest I’ve been enjoying being pregnant, I feel lucky and blessed to have such an amazing pregnancy. I’ve been using the extra delicious calories to build muscle while working out💪🏻 but of course I’ve gained weight😏 but to be honest that doesn’t bother me at all because at the end I know how to get back to the way I was and I like it #noregrets the most important is that my little angel is growing strong and healthy 🤰🏻🙌🏼 *Before the #momshaming start with the blah blah blah comments. Let me tell you this. No, I'm not worried what my kid’s friends will say about me when they see my photos or videos, that is way down the road for me to even worry about. Plus, I haven’t even pushed this baby out yet lol!😂 I’m not changing just because I’m pregnant or becoming a mom, I was proud before of who I am and what I’ve done so there’s nothing to be ashamed of😏 #liveandletlive #healthypregnancy #lovingmypregnantbody
The fitness model, who is expecting her first child, a baby boy, with her husband, Russ Mayfield, anticipated the backlash.
“No, I’m not worried what my kid’s friends will say about me when they see my photos or videos,” she explained in her Instagram caption on Monday. “That is way down the road for me to even worry about.”
Pao continued: “I’m not changing just because I’m pregnant or becoming a mom.”
In July, Pao and the engineer shared their pregnancy news with Us Weekly exclusively. Preparing to be parents has brought the Oklahoma-based couple closer together.
“We’re being more patient with each other,” she told Us at the 90 Day Fiance Season 6 Mixer in October. “I’ve been calm, which is not normal for me.”
Russ echoed the sentiment, gushing to Us: “I feel like our goals are aligned.”
Pao and Russ celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary in October.
