The Two Women From That Viral Pregnancy Photo Have Both Given Birth And They Don't Care What You Think
Two different pregnancies, two cute babies.
A fitness model whose photo showing how wildly different two pregnancies can be has given birth to a healthy boy.
Former Miss Universe Australia Chontel Duncan shared the above photo on her social media channels late last year, showing her posing with a friend who was only four weeks further along than she was.
Earlier this month, the image went viral, with thousands praising it for the positive body image the photo sent. Since then, she continued to share her pregnancy journey on social media.
"This is Nat's 3rd pregnancy so she had a lot of great advice to share," Duncan wrote on her Instagram. "It's very clear in this photo just how tall I am, I mean my chin sits above Nat's head lol. We worked out that we are 4 weeks apart, so our little ones will be the same age, same grade at school and potential best buds hehehehe."
"Each woman carries differently and this most certainly doesn't mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy," Duncan wrote. "We both have healthy growing babies and we both have had incredible pregnancies so far."
Over the weekend, Duncan announced the birth of her baby boy, Jeremiah Thomas Duncan. He was born on Good Friday, weighing in at 7lbs 13oz (3.2kg) and 53cm long.
A few days later and Duncan is still showing off photos of Jeremiah, saying he's happy and healthy and an "absolute champion on the boob." The new mum says she's also recovering well.
And in more good news, Duncan's friend Nat Smith gave birth to a healthy boy, Charlie, earlier this month.
"I didn't know what to think or say… [The photo] proves that two people can have two different pregnancies and they're not the same. It just proves that it doesn't matter what size you are, it doesn't mean you're unhealthy.
"It just means that you have two different pregnancies. Just look at Chontel and I."
