Just when you think this duo can’t get any sweeter, they do. Tori Roloff is currently expecting baby No. 2, and the Little People, Big World star shared new photos of her baby bump on July 15 — with a little help from her son, Jackson! The reality TV mom shared a few pics that showed off both her belly and Jackson’s, and it’s legit the cutest thing you’ll see all week.
“💗BUMPdate!💗,” Tori, 28, began the post. “So I have yet to share one of these this go around. Sorry, girlsie. 🎀 I am currently 20 weeks! I’m feeling a lot better now than I did in my first trimester. My belly button never returned after Jackson and is becoming even less visible now. I don’t really have cravings. Other than gummy bears (but honestly I love them with or without being preggo). I don’t think Jackson ‘gets it’ but he loves checking his belly for baby.” LOL.
The reality star continued, “Baby girl is the size of a banana. Which is so fitting because Jackson is obsessed with bananas. 🎀 I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who comment[ed] and messaged me about my post on self-image. You all are so fricking sweet. I wasn’t looking for affirmation but y’all seriously gave it to me. That’s honestly what gives me [the] confidence to post this. I’m trying to love the heck out of my body because dang it, I’m proud to grow this baby girl. #storyofzachandtori #babyjroloff #ZandTPartyofFour.”
Tori was referring to a previous pregnancy update she gave her followers in which she admitted that she’s struggling with body image issues with her second pregnancy. “I have had a harder time accepting my body this go around,” she wrote on July 6. “I’ve gotten bigger a lot faster than I did with Jackson and I’ve become a lot more insecure … It’s been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy because I’ve let my own body image issues get in the way.”
However, plenty of Little People, Big World fan stepped up in the comments to let Tori know she’s “beautiful,” “strong,” and “an inspiration.” Plus, her father-in-law Matt Roloff’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, reached out to her with words of encouragement too. After Tori shared how she’s feeling, Caryn replied, “Ugh … the body image insecurity train. I ride it often myself 🙈. Thank [you] sweet Tori — For a reminder to accept [and love] our imperfect selves (preggers or not ). Love [you] gurl — you glow inside, out and always 😘💕.” We agree! We think Tori is looking great, and if she wanted to show off more #bumpdate photos alongside Jackson’s “bump” in the future, we wouldn’t be mad about it.
