The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi is 27 weeks along, and this mom-to-be is reflecting on how much her body's changed throughout her pregnancy — and why she's never felt more beautiful with her new curves.
Gretchen posted a photo on Instagram of her baby bump in a strappy Naked Wardrobe black dress from the brand's Baby Mama line, along with a caption about her changing shape.
Gretchen wrote: "It’s weird even though I am 20 pounds heavier then I normally am and I have this belly overtaking my body now, I can honestly say I have never felt more sexy or beautiful in my life! I love my new curvier body, my fuller breasts, glowing skin and hair! Thank you baby girl and pregnancy hormones! (and lots and lots of water)."
Gretchen's taken us along her pregnancy journey, and she's not afraid to stand up for herself when social media users criticize the size of her bump or randomly accuse of her wearing Spanx. So no wonder Gretchen isn't afraid to be honest with her relatable pre-pregnancy worries, and how she overcame them.
"I have to admit I was a little nervous about becoming pregnant and my body changing so much, but I am truly embracing and loving every little change," she wrote on Instagram. "It reminds me how women are truly superhumans! I mean our bodies can adapt to carrying this little life inside of us (pushing aside vital organs to make room). It truly is incredible and such a miracle!"
