Brittany Cartwright has a lot to celebrate. The Vanderpump Rules alum is expecting her first child, a baby boy, with her husband Jax Taylor and she shared all that she's grateful for in a recent Instagram post dedicated to her growing baby bump.
Brittany has talked all things pregnancy before, having taken to Instagram to address body shamers who have criticized her body during pregnancy. And now, in an empowering post, she's refusing to let negative comments affect how she feels about this time in her life.
"I deserve to post this with pride," Brittany began in her caption on December 29, under a photo of her growing belly. "I am so proud of my body for creating my son. I have had days where I let negative comments from strangers get me down, but WHY!? I am growing a perfect and healthy human being who I have only dreamed of my entire life."
The Kentucky-born beauty opened up about her changing body as she posed in a leopard print bralette and gray bike shorts with her long, chestnut strands styled in a casual updo. "I am going to give my body the respect it deserves and shout it from the rooftops how lucky and blessed I feel to experience this pregnancy," she continued.
At 25 weeks, Brittany explained that though she is still experiencing daily sickness, she isn't going to let anything stand in her way of experiencing the highs of becoming a mother. "I am feeling very lucky and emotional," Brittany added,"to have this opportunity to be a mom and I will no longer let trolls influence my happiness."
She ended her message by encouraging her fellow soon-to-be-mamas to be "proud of your body because you are growing a human life!" Who can argue with that?
