Tori Roloff is pregnant, proud... and beautiful.
The veteran Little People, Big World shared a trio of new maternity photos on Instagram last night, making it clear she's (hopefully) over previous self-esteem issues that have resulted from her second pregnancy.
"Baby girl I just can not wait to meet you," wrote the TLC personality as a very simple and sweet caption to the images above and below.
Tori and husband Zach announced in mid-May that they were expecting a sibling for adorable son Jackson, confirming at the time that it will be a baby girl.
"We are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother! We can not wait to meet our sweet baby girl!" they said at the time.
Since then, Tori has kept fans well apprised of her physical status, via pictures such as this, along with her mental status.
Meaning what, exactly?
The beloved reality star has admitted that this second pregnancy has been more challenging than her first, mainly due to how quickly and significantly her belly bump has grown.
"I have had a harder time accepting my body this go around," Tori explained in July, adding of her mindset back then:
"I’ve gotten bigger a lot faster than I did with Jackson and I’ve become a lot more insecure."
Explained a candid Tori this summer:
"It’s been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy because I’ve let my own body image issues get in the way."
This made us sad to hear -- but then Tori's subequent section of this same post just made us love her more than ever.
"Us as women are so badass," she continued.
"Like we can grow babies. And I know I need to give this up to God right and be thankful for this gift-and I’m trying trust me. But for all those women out there-pregnant or not- you need to hear this just like I do."
And she concluded back then, as a message to other mothers-to-be:
You’re beautiful, you’re strong, and dang it love yourself no matter what. I know someone besides just me needs to hear that today.
So excuse me while I go try my best to live out these words and continue growing a freaking human being.
Is there any doubt now why Roloff is one of our favorite television personalities?
We sincerely hope that the release of these new maternity photos means Tori is feeling more upbeat about her figure at the moment.
Earlier this month, she did confirm much.
It’s been better these days," she told a fan in an Instagram Q&A, explaining in more detail: "Baby girl is sitting really low, so she’s making my hips and hip flexors ache pretty bad."
