MANILA – Sarah Lahbati, who is six months pregnant, has had enough of body shamers.
The actress took to Twitter to call out those who have been shaming her on social media for her pregnant body, saying that women should not be disrespected for carrying a child.
“I’m six months pregnant and getting body shamed. ‘Ang taba mo,’ ‘ang laki mo,’ ‘loshang,’ etc. Did you forget that I am carrying a child? I am growing a baby inside of me and you are shaming me. This just doesn’t happen to me. What happened to women supporting each other? Praising each other as mothers? Why can’t we accept that our bodies are made to change during pregnancy because there is a growing baby inside?” Lahbati said.
“Respect pregnant women and think before you judge or open your mouth. If you’re here to do that and be disrespectful, unfollow me and get out of my page. I deserve respect and will not allow anyone to step on me for being pregnant. This goes out to all pregnant women. We all deserve to be happy and focus on our growing baby. Let’s stay positive, happy, and mind our own business, everyone!”
Lahbati got engaged to “La Luna Sangre” star Richard Gutierrez early this year. The two have a four-year-old son named Zion.
