Robyn Lawley: Check Out My "Badass" Stretch Marks!

by at . Comments

Earlier this year, Robyn Lawley became the first plus-size model to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The spread put the 25-year old beauty in the spotlight for the first time... and she quickly learned how galling that glare can sometimes be.

Late last week, Lawley shared a photo and message on Instagram in response to a UK gossip column that claimed she had considered an “abortion to avoid stretch marks.”

Beyond appalled at this assertion, Robyn went topless on social media not to bare her breasts; but to bare the results of her pregnancy.

"I earned my stretch marks," she wrote as a caption.

"They are some badass #tigerstripes. F--k them, who cares, be you, be loud, be proud. And to anyone who feels bad about your body especially after a baby, you are a warrior, you created a little life inside of you, that’s no easy feat."

Lawley is the latest proud mother to go viral as a result of flaunting her post-pregnancy stomach.

She has walked in New York Fashion Week and appeared in Vogue Italia. She and partner Everest Schmidt are the parents of a girl named Ripley.

And it's pretty clear Ripley has an awesome role model for a mother, isn't it?
