Pregnant Tori Spelling Defends Bikini Pic
Tori Spelling, pregnant with her fourth child, has been showing off her growing baby bump this summer in itsy bitsy bikinis, but fans of the star are not happy.
One Spelling fan commented, "Too much showing. Not suitable for a pregnant mom with a seven-month-old."
"Ewww. She's pregnant! Cover that bump up! No one wants to see that!!" another said.
But Spelling is not giving in.
"Spoiler Alert: Yep! I'm wearing my BUMP PROUD again in a bikini so if you don't want to look then leave my site now!" Spelling posted to her website Aug. 9 alongside a photo of her in a bikini.
"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," she added. "Apparently people online have some strong opinions about showing your pregnant body and what's appropriate to wear."
Spelling, who is due in September, told fans she's proud of her bump.
"Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that's the greatest gift a woman can experience?" she posted. "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."
Spelling's husband, Dean McDermott, agrees with the happy mom-to-be.
"I'm never as happy as when I'm pregnant," Spelling said recently, according to the Daily Mail. "And Dean can't keep his hands off me! He's like, 'You're the sexiest pregnant woman.'"
Spelling and McDermott have three other children: Liam is five, Stella turns four next month, and Hattie is seven months old. Spelling became pregnant with their fourth child only one month after giving birth to Hattie.
Spelling is hoping for a boy for baby No. 4.
"We would like a little boy, and Stella … she's now a middle child and when we told her about the pregnancy she said, 'I hope it's a little boy for Liam,'" Spelling told Rachael Ray in an interview airing Wednesday.
