Lingerie model Sarah Stage has received plenty of criticism from naysayers who claim her incredibly trim figure could be detrimental to her unborn baby’s health, but six months into her pregnancy, she’s determined to prove them wrong.
The 33-year-old from Los Angeles took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of her most recent ultrasound, explaining that her second child’s fetal development is right where it should be.
‘Doctors appointment went great today,’ she captioned the image. ‘Baby is weighing a little over 2lbs with a strong heartbeat and huge hands lol Thanks for all of the well wishes.’

At 26-weeks, Sarah is halfway through her sixth month, and her baby boy is already where he is supposed to be – although some falsely stated in the comments section that her son’s weight was too low.

There's a Sesame Street book for 3 YEAR OLDS called "We're Different, We're the Same." 😽It teaches TODDLERS that we may all look different on the outside—but it's important to remember that deep down, we are all very much alike. We all have the same needs, desires, and feelings. Toddlers learn that everyone is the same on the inside, and it's our differences that make this wonderful world, which is home to us all, an interesting—and special—place. #fundamentals #6monthspregnant
Sarah became an online sensation back in 2015 after images of her showing off her washboard abs while nine-months pregnant took the internet by storm.
Although critics insisted her fit physique would negatively affect her baby’s health, her son James Hunter weighed over 8lbs at the time of his birth.
Now, more than two years later, Sarah is expecting another boy – and receiving similar criticisms and concerns.
