Olivia Bowen has confessed she doesn’t care about gaining weight during pregnancy and says she’s “thrilled” with how the human body works.
The former Love Island star, 28, and colleague Alex Bowen, 30, are expecting their first baby together after falling in love on the dating show in 2016 and tying the knot two years later.
Earlier this month, the blonde beauty admitted she “had a jitter” but insisted she’s been relatively lucky throughout her pregnancy.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the TV personality wrote a lengthy post about how her journey had gone so far.
She placed the words on a black and white selfie that showed off her large baby bump.
She wrote: “Weight gain in pregnancy doesn’t worry me. Not really. Hardly think about it! If anything, I am thrilled with my new body and what it is doing for my baby.”
Olivia revealed that the hardest part about being pregnant was feeling like a whole new person as she can’t do some of the things she’s used to, like horseback riding or exercising in a certain way.
And she told her 2.8million followers she wanted to talk about becoming a “new version of you.”
She continued, “People often talk about the weight gain and the physique changes and I understand that for some that’s the focus (although I wish it wasn’t), but personally I’m more interested, intrigued and nervous about it.” Change in my mentality, in my personality.
“That was a challenge for me. i love my body Period. I never questioned him lol. I want to pay attention to the spiritual wellbeing of new moms and their transition to a new identity that feels like it to me. “
The family are keeping their child’s gender a surprise but announced last month that they expect the child to be born in June.
Olivia has kept her fans regularly updated on how the trip is progressing, uploading a series of pictures showing her stomach.
Last month, she wrote on Instagram: “I feel so much more comfortable and calm about becoming a mom and now pregnant. It just seems to take time to get used to!”
And on Wednesday, she uploaded a new picture showing her belly expanding. She looked amazing as she posed in a chic wool dress as she enjoyed the UK’s rare warm weather.
The outfit, which included a revealing leg slit, showcased her midsection perfectly as she cradled her stomach.
