A little self-love! Professional beach volleyball player Morgan Miller took to her Instagram Story on Saturday, September 7, to share a rare baby bump photo with her fans. In the caption, the 32-year-old opened up about her struggles with body acceptance now that she is currently pregnant with twin boys, and she revealed how she learned to love her body and the changes that come along with pregnancy.

“30 weeks, 5 days. Identical twin boys,” Morgan wrote in the caption. “If I’m being honest, most days, I hate being pregnant but today, I was reminded that this belly has grown five healthy babies. It has been a home for the creation of life and played in monumental role in providing me with the love I get to feel every day. I should give my body the same love it has provided me. Feeling so much love and gratitude 🙏🏽.”

Morgan and her husband, former World Cup alpine ski racer Bode Miller, announced Morgan’s pregnancy during their joint appearance on the Today show last month. Morgan’s pregnancy was a bittersweet moment for the family because the announcement came just 14 months after the death of the couple’s 19-month-old daughter, Emeline Grier, who tragically drowned in a neighbor’s pool in 2018.

Shortly after announcing her pregnancy on TV, Morgan took to her Instagram to open up about how she feels about expecting again after suffering such a tragic loss.

“Now, I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys. From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday,” she wrote. “We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from @millerbode Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.”
