Body shamers grow rampant now that they have social media to spread their animosity, but Sarah Lahbati isn’t having any of it.
The soon-to-be mother of two shared photos of herself today, December 3, on Twitter, showing off her gorgeous six months pregnant body.
But it seems her photos garnered some negative comments, such as “ang taba mo,” “ang laki mo,” and “loshang,” for she followed that post with a note calling out body shamers.
“I am growing a baby inside me and you are shaming me,” she wrote. “Why can’t we accept that our bodies are made to change during pregnancy because there is a growing baby inside?”
“I deserve respect and will not allow anyone to step on me for being pregnant,” Sarah wrote.

Sarah is pregnant with her second child with fiance Richard Gutierrez. Their first child Zion turned four years old last April.
