The former Love Island winner, who shares son Freddie-George with Nathan, took to her Instagram Stories to thank fans for making her feel like ‘poo’ after she shared a snap of herself in a black and white, off the shoulder dress that gave a glimpse of her stomach.
She said: ‘Thanks to all the women that have commented I’m pregnant in my latest pic.
‘I’m not I’m trying to lose weight, but thanks for making me feel like [poo emoji].
‘Hope you all have a great bank holiday’.
She then added: ‘And then you’re surprised when people have depression, anxiety and eating disorders [thumbs down emoji]’.
Cara’s followers were quick to defend her and hit back at the ‘pregnant’ comments.
One wrote: ‘How vile are people far from looking pregnant you look lovely not all women get flat stomachs after babies not matter how hard you try xx.’
Another said: ‘Cara! You r so beautiful.. body shamers aren’t welcome here… you don’t deserve it’.
A third added: ‘I don’t think you look pregnant at all @cara_delahoyde. You definitely don’t need to lose weight either! You are healthy, you have a beautiful baby and that’s all that matters – don’t worry about what anybody else thinks’.
Cara previously revealed how having son Freddie-George has helped her to overcome mental health issues.
Speaking on Talk Radio, Cara admitted that becoming a mum has made her more relaxed and has also had a positive effect on her relationship with Nathan, who she briefly split from just before announcing her pregnancy last year.
‘We’re just much more of a team now,’ she said. ‘So we help each other out and just other things, I’m such a calmer person.
‘Like before I’d be all over the place and I said before I have suffered from depression, bi-polar and anxiety and I don’t know what has happened but it is like just sorted everything out.
‘Because there’s someone there that’s more important than me.’
