Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has been an open book about her struggles with her body image, weight, and keeping herself accountable. And since announcing that she's expecting her third child in what Teddi calls her "first healthy and fit pregnancy," the fitness pro has been challenging expectations, whether she's strutting her stuff on the runway at 14 weeks pregnant or sharing pics of her growing bump on Instagram.
But in a recent Instagram post, Teddi explained that thanks to this pregnancy, she is officially ready to embrace who she is in every way. In the pic, Teddi showed off her adorable baby bump posing nearly naked wearing only a nude thong and silver stilettos — because why not?
"I spent many years fixated on the stretch marks that run down my inner thighs or the loose skin on my arms I try to pose away in pics.." Teddi wrote. "Well not today. Not now. I am loving the skin I am in and feeling damn proud about it. Proud to be unapologetically me; a woman who works hard and believes the best is always yet to come, for my mind, soul and yes, body."
Get it, Teddi!
