Thank you Laura for keeping it real!

In a world of #fitspo, pregnant jewellery designer Laura Byrne is the refreshing breath of fresh air we all need - especially if you're currently pregnant!
Last week, the soon-to-be mum took to Instagram to reveal just how exhausting a recent trip to the gym was and it certainly got this preggo bystander cheering.
In a series of hilarious Insta posts, Laura, who is five months pregnant with her first child, confessed she had to take a two hour nap after returning to the gym following a hiatus.
And now in a new interview with the Daily Telegraph, the Bachelor beauty has explained why she won't be rushing back to the gym anytime soon.
"I have no intention of over exerting myself or expecting too much from myself. I will enjoy the nine months and if I feel like I want to get back in shape after I will do it then," she told the publication.
Before adding her partner Matty "J" Johnson couldn't be more supportive of her approach.
"The pressure doesn't come from Matt, it comes from myself. I went to the gym the other day and afterwards I had to have a two hour nap because I was exhausted."

As for Matty J, he says Laura is positively glowing.
"If you want to eat a packet of biscuits, do it. I've never seen Laura look sexier."
Amen to that, Matty!
As The Bachelor poster couple countdown to welcome their bundle of joy in early June, Laura's growing baby bump has well and truly popped - and she looks phenomenal.
On Monday, the former reality star upload a candid selfie of her beautiful belly in all its glory.

"23 and a bit weeks marks the start of this little wanton's dance recital on my bladder #5monthsdown," Laura penned.
In the snap, the business owner beams into the mirror in a pair of black briefs and a matching bra.
Not surprisingly, Laura's gorgeous bump snap was quickly inundated with well wishers.
"Omg how cute are you 😍. You are glowing," one fan wrote.
"You look stunning @ladyandacat you are literally glowing," another added.
'Umm @ladyandacat you look amazing! So healthy x," a third said.
We couldn't agree more!
