Iskra Lawrence is already getting her mama bear claws out and this time she’s sinking her daggers into a follower who attempted to shame her over her pregnancy body. The British model, who just revealed she’s pregnant with her first child weeks ago, has been keeping fans up-to-date on her pregnancy thus far. Sharing a photo on her social media Friday revealing her baby bump, Iskra proudly displayed her changing body while wearing a bra and underwear but could not have prepared for what came next.
Posting her first pregnancy throwback photo, Iskra told her 4.5 million followers this snap was taken when her child with her boyfriend, Philip Payne, was just the size of “a lil blueberry.” Holding up the small fruit, the model wore a lacy blue bandeau displaying her ample cleavage with tight gray underwear. “I’ve been keeping track ever since I found out I was pregnant??so here’s the first throwback to 7weeks when baby P was only the size of a lil blueberry?” she captioned the sweet pic. Acknowledging she’s aware her pregnancy updates may be “triggering” for women who may be experiencing fertility issues, she wrote, “I want to take this time to celebrate all women and their journeys and highlight the normalities of infertility and bring awareness to issues that effect 1 in 4 women.”
Iskra continued her message by adding, “You are not alone and you and your body are worthy of love and celebration too.” Fans immediately began filling her comments with words of support and love, but one fan took issue with the model displaying her non-edited body while wearing the teeny tiny underwear. “I would have fixed the vag before posting,” the body-shamer wrote. The hater’s comment did not go unnoticed by Iskra or her fans who immediately took issue with the negativity.
Replying back to the follower, Iskra, who’s known for posting untouched photos, kept her cool but put them in their place. “It doesn’t need ‘fixing,'” she clapped back. “All my body parts are perfectly wonderful thanks and I refuse to retouch them.” Several fans applauded Iskra Lawrence for her response and continued to build her up despite the body-shamer attempting to bring her down. “there’s absolutely nothing to fix anywhere. @iskra is just beautiful,” one fan wrote. “thanks for shutting down that horrible comment. We dont wish for what kind of body we want,” addressed another. “I think its horrible how people tall down on what a ‘perfect or normal’ vag is suppose to be. I think there should be something out there to help young woman accept and be comfortable with their private parts. So i applaud you and love that you shut it down,” commented a third person.
As The Blast reported, Iskra Lawrence announced she was pregnant and expecting her first child with Philip Payne earlier this month. Holding up a Clear Blue pregnancy test, the blonde mom-to-be revealed the exciting news by writing, “It’s not just the two of us anymore, we’re soon to be a family of 3” and told followers she was already 17 weeks pregnant!
