Last month, we learned something very exciting: Paola Mayfield and Russ are expecting their first child.
The 90 Day Fiance couple is overjoyed at the news, and Pao is taking to social media to show off her baby bump in a barely-there bikini.
In the video that we’ve included, see how her fit body has changed.
Wearing a colorful and extremely minimal bikini, Paola Mayfield poses in front of the mirror while recording herself.
“Too many changes,” Paola writes in her Instagram caption. “And I’m loving them all.”
As you’ll see in the video below (and in the .gifs that we’ve whipped up), Pao’s body is indeed changing.
Though it’s been just under a month since she and Russ shared the good news, she’s already showing a baby bump.
But, as you might expect from an ab-tastic fitness model, her baby bump looks a little different than most.
The first baby bump pic that Paola and Russ shared was a little more traditional.
It was a still image. Paola was wearing a red dress that hugged her belly with its newfound curves.
In the photo, kneeling before her, was Russ, planting a gentle kiss on his wife’s bump.
It was very, very sweet.
But considering that Paola is a fitness model who is no stranger to showing off her incredible form on social media, this new video is a little more like what fans expect.
A little over a week ago, Paola and Russ revealed that they’re expecting a boy.
Obviously, gender is a social construct that no ultrasound can magically predict, but we know what they mean.
This is huge news for the couple.
Even Paola’s friend Juan, who has had serious doubts about Russ and her relationship with him, is rejoicing at the pregnancy announcement.
It’s good to support your friends, even if you have doubts about their life choices.
Paola moved from Columbia to the U.S. because she and Russ had fallen in love.
Like all 90 Day Fiance couples, Russ and Pao had to deal with more problems than simply their relationship beginning long-distance.
When Paola moved to the U.S. to be with Russ, she lived with Russ … in Oklahoma. It was not ideal.
She had no friends there and no career opportunities. And it was Oklahoma.
However, things changed for the better after Russ, being a supportive husband (despite his old-timey reservations about her career), moved to Miami with her.
You might be distracted by Paola’s baby bump or by the many visible parts of her body that are not her baby bump in this video.
But if you look at her face and the way that she’s touching herself (on her abdomen, you pervs), you can see that she is really over the moon about her pregnancy.
By the way, in case anyone thinks of body-shaming her for maintaining her fit body while pregnant, please remember that different women carry weight, including baby weight, to different degrees.
Also, body-shaming someone for being slender is not morally superior to body-shaming someone for being large.
Congratulations again to Paola and Russ!
