Erica Simon offers baby PSA to body shamers

Erica Simon, the abc13 Houston KTRK 10pm anchor, who is expecting, has offered a "friendly PSA" via social media to viewers concerning her pregnancy.

Erica Simon gives birth to baby #2

"As I enter into my third trimester, I have a friendly PSA. 

No, I’m not about to pop, deliver tomorrow, or am having twins. I’m petite with a small torso, so no matter the size of the baby, I’m going to present startlingly big in the tummy.

It’s not polite to constantly comment on women’s pregnant bodies. In fact, last go round with Ella, some of you made me feel very self-conscious and bad, at a time where I should be celebrating, at peace, and preparing for God’s gift. 

I will keep you updated on major developments like I always do, so no need to bombard me with pregnancy opinions, or how you think I look. 

Cheers to a beautiful, healthy delivery in February!"

During Simon's last pregnancy, TV anchors at other Houston stations came to her defense.
