Tori Spelling: Why should I cover up baby bump?

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling has hit back at critics who say she should not flaunt her baby bump in a bikini.

The 39-year-old actress and reality star is expecting her fourth child with husband Dean McDermott after falling pregnant soon after the birth of their 11-month-old daughter Hattie.

The couple is also parents to Liam, five, and Stella, four, and Tori says she doesn't want to be judged for something so natural.

"I'm super-proud of my bump," she wrote on her blog. "Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that's the greatest gift a woman can experience? 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. I call it BUMP PROUD! Embrace your growing curves and burgeoning belly."

Tori also added that she wanted to send a positive message to her young girls about body image.

"I'm making a conscious choice to show my daughters that they can express themselves and be proud as a woman of their bodies," she shared.

"I don't ever want them to think that they should be ashamed or self-conscious of their bodies, no matter what shape it's in."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
