Belle Lucia has given birth to a beautiful baby boy.
The Australian model, 22, announced the news on Instagram over the weekend.
Fans were quick to congratulate her, with many commenting about how stunning she looks days after giving birth.
One fan gushed: “Ummm did you even have a baby? Your tummy is literally gone!
“Amazing. It took me almost a year.
“You look fabulous.”
Another said: “(After giving birth) I was wearing a dressing gown, maxi pad and a catheter and didn’t leave the house for four weeks.
“I never looked amazing like this days after.”
A third added: “Motherhood looks great on you.”
Belle took the compliments with modesty, admitting motherhood hasn’t been as glamorous as it seems on social media.
She responded: “Haha these jeans are pretty tight! Holding everything in.
“I still have a mum tum.”
Belle is likely to be chuffed by the response to her baby announcement.
During her pregnancy, commenters weren’t always so kind to the influencer.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, the model revealed she’d fallen victim to “bump shamers”.
She said: “People have accused me of faking my pregnancy (or said) they think the baby is dead.
“Shockingly a mother even said I was a bad example to other women because I’m not big enough, others have told me I’m starving the baby and I’m unhealthy.
“I’ve had a long list of negative comments about my ‘bump’, luckily the welcomed comments outweigh the nasty ones.”
At the time, Belle defended herself and insisted that every pregnancy is different.
She said: “People behind the keyboard sending horrible messages aren’t aware that pregnant women have absolutely no control over how a bump grows, some women have a retroverted uterus – where the baby grows towards the back and other women have had previous pregnancies so they show earlier on.
“Bumps come in all shapes and sizes depending on a number of factors.
“Growing a human in itself is a miracle, bump or no bump, people should focus less on the bump and more so on the baby…
“Body shaming is not okay no matter how 'big' or 'small' someone is."
