A model who is five months pregnant is to hit the trolls who are shaming her baby bump, telling them that “all women are different’.

Belle Lucia, who is originally from Sydney, but lives in London, announced the news that she was expecting her one million Instagram followers at the beginning of April.

But 17 weeks into the pregnancy, the 24-year-old hit back at cruel claims that they do not “look” pregnant of her smaller baby bump.

Post photos of other women who are also on the 17-week mark of their pregnancy, Belle caption of the image on her Instagram story: “As you can see, the women are very different, but that is a little bit of life.

“Just because I’m not showing as much as you want, doesn’t mean that my pregnancy is ‘unhealthy’ or that I promote a ‘skinny’ pregnancy.

“It’s my body and I can’t help it if it doesn’t look the same as other women. Body shaming is not okay, how ‘large’ or ‘small’.”

She wrote in one post: “I have experience morning sickness, pain in the chest, and certainly a lot of fear at the beginning, because the fear of a miscarriage – I had no idea how many they were.

“But I’ve learned to embrace everything, both the downs and ups. “

The model shared her pregnancy news just after the 12-week mark, but among the thousands of congratulatory messages, many were curious as to how Belle could not have been “visible hump.”

“You don’t look pregnant, I would never have guessed,” one person responded.

She is skinnier than I am, even at nine months,” another agreed.

Belle quickly responded to the criticism: “I don’t have a bump yet. Women grow at different speeds, and just because I have no “bump” does not mean that I am not pregnant.”

She went on placing an ultrasound video on her story, but deleted it shortly after to claim that many people were ‘rude and creepy about the video.
