She received the same criticism during her first pregnancy two years ago.
Model Sarah Stage uploaded a picture on social media, claiming it was taken when she was six months pregnant, and it quickly got everyone talking. Netizens couldn’t believe that her muscle-toned body and her toned abs actually had a baby inside.
The photo immediately raised eyebrows, with some netizens even poking fun at her. The 32-year-old from Los Angeles, came under fire during her pregnancy for posting a string of selfies showing off her seemingly rock-hard abs, with many critics claiming that maintaining such a tiny figure could be damaging to her unborn child.
There were a number of comments posted below her pictures on Instagram like: “Where’s the bump?” to “Where the baby at?” Another simply wrote, “I look more pregnant than you, and I’m not even pregnant.”
I'm at a place in my life where happiness, peace and joy are my priority 👶🏻 Especially being #6monthspregnant , there's no room for any negativity so please take it elsewhere ✌🏼Baby #2 is healthy and measuring just fine 🙌🏼 I would think that after having James, who was born almost 9lbs and healthy, people would be more understanding during this pregnancy and keep their ignorant comments to themselves …🙄 we are all different that's what makes us special and unique! Anyway, thank you to the amazing women who have started my Fitness Ebook and everyone who has supported my journey! 😘Been working hard on updates like meal plans, recipes and grocery list!

However, Sarah is not new to body shaming with firstly facing during her first pregnancy in 2015. She had the same fit and muscle-toned body up until she gave birth. People refused to believe it was real. She had a taut stomach just a few days after giving birth in 2015, and people were amazed—but some were in disbelief.

The young mother for whom fitness remains a top priority showed off her perfectly toned abs in a series of bikini pictures. In her Instagram update, she aimed to silence her critics by reminding them how her first son was born “healthy”.
