Taiwanese actress Evonne Hsieh, who is due to give birth to her first child next month, recently posted a picture of her baby bump on Weibo to encourage body positivity. The photo very clearly shows off the 28-year-old's stretch marks and large belly.
“My manager kept encouraging me to post this picture online, but I don’t see what’s so interesting about it. Actually, when the stretch marks first started appearing, I was frightened too, but many seniors told me that the appearance of stretch marks depends on the body of the mother herself. This is not the main point, however. In life, we must have these sweet frustrations, in order to make life more interesting. Hidden within these scars, is the story between me and the little thing (inside me),” she wrote, adding that she’s looking forward to the day when she can finally meet her "new roommate".
In other related news, the actress looks to be gearing up for motherhood, having purchased a new baby stroller recently. However, its first "passenger" will not be her unborn child - instead, Evonne’s beloved pet cat took the stroller for a test run.
“What are you looking at… I’m just helping my younger sister test out this vehicle, I have no intentions of stealing it away from her,” she wrote in her caption, as if from the point of view of her cat.
