Australian fitness model Paige Hathaway is having a great countdown to baby number one and is taking along her 4.1 million followers with her for the ride by posting frequent photos of her toned physique in pregnancy form.
Recently, the influencer surveyed her followers and fans asking them to choose between two beautiful maternity portraits. One featured the celebrity trainer in a flowing forest green strapless dress and the other with her cupping her belly in soft baby pink.
One series posted on her Instagram account featured the pretty blonde in a studded motorcycle jacket over black bikini lingerie revealing her 36 week belly.

THE PREGNANCY STRUGGLE!! 😳 Why don’t women talk about the realllllness of pregnancy!? …Everyone just talks about how much “they love being pregnant” .. the “good stuff” but where’s the truth!? Don’t get me wrong being able to become pregnant in the first place is a blessing and this whole experience has been life changing but LETS GET REALLY REAL FOR JUST A MOMENT! The third trimester for me has been SUCH A CHALLENGE! I mean, if you’re lucky to still be able to even bend over to put on your shoes. Shaving THIS IS THE JOKE OF THE CENTURY! Can I lift my leg high enough to see all the areas I’m shaving.. (I’ll let you answer that one lol) Also, there should be an Olympic sport for getting up from a low piece of furniture while in your third trimester. The lower the piece of furniture, the less graceful you’ll be. At times I look as graceful as a turtle stuck on his back, desperately trying to roll over onto its legs, it’s a real sight to see…. Laughing at this one because everyone says “get your sleep now” .. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? 😂 Because they must not have encountered the endless need to pee, the weird pains from shifting positions, the kicks that come in the middle of the night or the crazy dreams that make you wake up in a panic. Oh yeah, and there’s nothing like getting winded doing menial things like walking up a flight of stairs or grabbing something that’s slightly out of reach. BUT all these aches, all the pains and all the inconveniences are worth it. The third trimester is just one hurdle before the real prize. Just need to suck it up and before you know it, there’s a sweet baby in your arms making you (almost) forget all the things you struggled with near the end.. 😝🥰😍 WHAT ARE SOME STRUGGLES YOU FACED IN YOUR LAST TRIMESTER! (Comment below-Be real)
She even gave fans and followers one of those nude progression that they do so well.
Hathaway also was featured on the cover of Train For Her magazine back when she was halfway thru the pregnancy journey at 20 weeks. “EXCITED to be on the cover of @trainforher magazine – 20 WEEKS PREGNANT!!!” she captioned an Instragra photo of the cover photo. “It’s little baby P’s first cover…. hehe”
Hathaway, who was born and raised in Oklahoma, boasts over 11 million followers across all her social platforms, and has headlined a series of fitness challenges and endeavors.
She is the latest in a string of Australian fitness models to gain international attention while pregnant.
