Model Tess Holliday has her fair share of body shamers, some of whom have questioned that she is really pregnant because she is already a plus-size woman.

On Thursday, however, Holliday shut down her pregnancy doubters and critics by posting a nude photo that puts her belly on display. Holliday is currently 37 weeks pregnant. 

"When people say to me 'I can't tell you're pregnant' & my face is like😏😂," she wrote. "I will continue to live unapologetically, to thrive in this body, prove the naysayers wrong & laugh at the ignorance."

She shared the image on Twitter as well:

Many of Holliday's fans celebrated the picture and told her to continue hitting back at her haters:


This comes a few days after Holliday posted several other Instagram photos about her pregnancy and being attacked by others for her size:

During her pregnancy, Holliday has faced a lot of criticism from people who have claimed that she is putting her child at risk.

Though Holliday says she exercises several times a week with a trainer, some have said her lifestyle is unhealthy and could harm her baby.

Despite the unsolicited advice that random people have given Holliday, the Mayo Clinic states on its website that there is no "one-size-fits-all approach to pregnancy weight gain." Rather, it's important for pregnant women to work with their healthcare providers to "determine what's best in [their] case and to manage [their] weight throughout pregnancy," the Mayo Clinic writes.
