Some other followers defended her by urging the haters to stop making judgements, “If she does have an eating disorder it’s not her fault so these comments are not helpful being ridiculed over her weight gain after her pregnancies 😢,” another wrote. “Super cute room! And for the haters, she has always been a small woman, just not when pregnant (as 95% of women) – so cut her some slack. Let her live! ❤️,” another comment said.
