Baby No. 2! Plus-size model and activist Tess Holliday is pregnant with her second child with her partner, Nick Holliday, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.
The 30-year-old beauty is already mom to son Rylee, 10, from a previous relationship. She announced the news on her Instagram account on Wednesday, January 27.
“Yes, it's true! @nickhollidayco & I are having a baby!” Holliday wrote. “We wanted to keep it a secret as long as possible, but we are finally able to share!”
The outspoken activist used her baby news to continue the conversation about the hardships plus-size women face in the beauty industry and beyond.
“Plus size women face so much stigma & doubt over what our bodies are capable of," she continued. “It's something I feel doesn't get enough media attention, but I hope that the next few months of my pregnancy will help change the conversation. All bodies are amazing! Thank you for the continued support in this exciting time in our lives p.s. I'm due in June #effyourbeautystandards.”
My family & I had the pleasure of serving Christmas Eve lunch to the residents of Downtown Women's Center & the homeless women of skid row today. I'm so honoured to be volunteering with them & using my platform to help end homelessness, raise awareness & get the women the help they need & @dwcweb is truly helping change lives! #IamDWC #endhomelessness #Christmaseve
Holliday first made headlines in January 2015 when she signed with Milk Model Management.
