You've met Sarah Stage, the pregnant model with a six pack.

Now meet, Sophie Guidolin an expectant mommy who hits the gym three times a week and has even returned to lifting weights after sticking to Pilates for the first few months of her pregnancy.

The Australian personal trainer is already 26 weeks pregnant with twins.

However, a lot of people have been criticizing the social media fitness star because of a picture she posted online that shows her lifting a 30kg (65-pound) weight, reports Elite Daily.

Although she was given clearance from her doctor to continue her gym regiment, and she takes extra precaution by exercising under the supervision of her husband, people are giving this hot mama a hard time.

Now, she wants to set the record straight for all of her haters out there.

Guidolin told Daily Mail: "To me, that’s not a heavy weight. It all comes down to what’s heavy for the individual and what they could lift prior to pregnancy. The pros of exercising during pregnancy definitely outweigh the cons. I really hope that pregnant women understand the benefits of exercising and a healthy lifestyle while pregnant."

She added: "I’m only lifting 50 percent of my usual capabilities, and I’m monitoring my heart rate and taking longer rest periods.”

At the end of the day, she just wants “women to embrace an active, healthy lifestyle and realize the benefits.”
