Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff is a queen of the well-curated Instagram page. Now that she’s expecting her second child, Tori is getting refreshingly real about her complicated pregnancy feelings, #nofilter-style.
The wife of reality star Zach Roloff recently shared a stunning new maternity pic, along with a very relatable caption: “I really didn’t want to take maternity photos. I’m not one of those women who loves being pregnant. In fact there’s not a lot of times I do love being pregnant.”
“Don’t get me wrong,” her message continues. “I thank God for this amazing gift every single day and I know how blessed I am but it definitely hasn’t made me feel my best. However, I am so freaking thankful I was talked into maternity photos by friends and family. This photo truly embodies what I LOVE about pregnancy. My growing bump is a symbol of a healthy girlsie. It’s a reminder that I’m in a position that many women dream of and trust me- I do not take it for granted.”
Tori’s pregnancy message concludes: “@moniqueserraphotography helped me celebrate what I love about being pregnant. I love feeling baby girl move inside me. I love sharing this experience with Zach and Jackson! I love that God has given me a gift and chosen me to be this sweet child’s mama. Also… it was nice getting dressed up and feeling beautiful!”
From the killer back pain to the seemingly never-ending nausea, we get it and applaud this mama for being honest about her personal pregnancy experience. We’re sure the gorgeous smile on soon-to-be big brother Jackson’s face is enough to get her through the more challenging moments.
Tori and Zach have a boy, 2-year-old Jackson Kyle, and their baby girl is due in November of this year.
