8.5 Months Pregnant, Mom's Weightlifting Pics Go Viral

California mom Lea-Anne Ellison, 35, claimed she works out to maintain her “hot Mom” image in a Facebook posting that has received over 16k likes and 3k shares; however, not everyone was amused.

Lea-Anne Ellison, 35, sparked an online firestorm after pictures of the 8 1/2-month pregnant mom lifting weights were posted on Facebook.

“This is actually sickening, I hope pregnant around the world do not do this kind of crap,” one woman wrote. “I am a crossfit enthusiast but I DO NOT recommend this at all.”

Ellison posted the image of her doing an over-head lift just two weeks before her due date.
