Los Angeles-based lingerie model Sarah Stage is eight and a half months pregnant and still looks every bit as stunning as her peers, which has attracted some negative attention from critics who say she’s too fit to be carrying a healthy baby.
Due in April, Stage flaunts abs, glowing skin, and a thin physique, which makes it hard for some to believe she’s so far along in her gestation. The 30-year-old addressed her critics on Entertainment Tonight recently, where she opened up about her fitness regime, her body, and new line of maternity wear.
“I’m just trying to stay positive. It’s hard enough to be pregnant,” Stage told ET in regards to the negative attention. “I think all women are beautiful, especially pregnant women.”
The model has only gained 20 pounds thus far, but says her doctor assures her that the baby is healthy.
“The doctor said my baby is healthy. All my girlfriends that are pregnant now, their bellies are a lot bigger, so I asked him and he started laughing. He was like, ‘You’re fine,'” she explained.
Stage said as far as dieting goes, she allows herself to splurge every now and again, and trains much lighter than before her pregnancy, but still makes times to maintain her physique.
She also has a new line of maternity clothing, which she has titled “Want My Look.” The new line features everything from swimwear to sexy maternity dresses.
