She's had enough, OK?
Daegan Coyne is a pregnant lawyer and bodybuilder—and because of her commitment to fitness, it shouldn't surprise anyone that she's in incredible shape. The Australian mom-to-be is phenomenally fit at 30 weeks pregnant, which is awesome...but some people have issues with the way she looks.
Coyne, who is expecting her first child, a daughter she has nicknamed 'Bubba,' has been active on social media throughout her pregnancy, sharing glimpses of her workouts and lifestyle. Plenty of her photos put her baby bump on full display and, unfortunately, followers had some critical things to say about its size.
"The majority of my comments have not been negative,” Coyne told Us Weekly. “I have, however, had a few ill-informed comments from strangers on social media stating that I ‘made them sick’ given I was ‘putting my baby’s health at risk’ due to my size. Others are commenting that I am being ‘superficial.’”
Like plenty of other fit preggos, Coyne has been accused of being 'too small' during her pregnancy, which is silly because every pregnancy is different. Luckily, Coyne understands that—and she isn't afraid to make her point loud and clear. Coyne posted an Instagram photo and message addressing the group of people who commented on the size of her bump.
BUMP 🍼🍼🍼I have had pregnant friends called out for being "too big", others "far too muscly" and myself, the "you're way too small". 🙄😒Given I am yet to see one lady carry their pregnancy shape and size the same as another, I believe it's safe to assume peeps that there is no "one size fits all" pregnancy. 💪🏻🙌🏻 . I know heaps of the comments aren't meant to be hurtful or upsetting by any means, but we all have enough to worry about being a new mum (omg scary) let alone whether you are the size you are "expected" to be. 😳PS. I don't think anyone even knows what this size is. I've been told one day I am carrying really high and the next "wow you are carrying so low" haha. 🙄😂 . Bubba is in fact above average size for at 30 weeks, I am just good at hiding her 😉🍼💗 #bumplove
"Given I am yet to see one lady carry their pregnancy shape and size the same as another, I believe it's safe to assume peeps that there is no 'one size fits all' pregnancy," she wrote alongside a photo of herself posing in a swimsuit.
We couldn't agree more. Rock that bump, girl!
