It was the baby bump heard around the world. When model Sarah Stage started posting pictures of her barely there baby bump on Instagram—in lingerie, no less—the social media world went crazy. The reason for the uproar? Stage is clearly fit, toned and muscular (she is a model, after all!), and her baby bump was correspondingly petite.
Soon people started commenting about the health of her baby and whether or not Stage was a fit mother for allowing her body to stay so trim and taut throughout pregnancy. One such comment reads "The baby is more important than your body. Please eat."
While she's remained mum on the subject up to now, Stage is finally speaking out at all of her naysayers. Stage recently told "Good Morning America" that she tries to tune out the negative comments, "As long as the baby is healthy I don't think anything else matters. I don't know how someone could say something like that to a pregnant woman — that is so rude."
Stage is approximately 34 weeks along and has gained about 20 pounds so far, which is completely normal and healthy according to board-certified ob-gyn and "The Doctors" co-host Dr. Jennifer Ashton.
Personally, we think she looks amazing! Best wishes for the expecting mom for a quick and easy delivery!
