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."
