Philadelphia, PA - A pregnant meteorologist who was criticized for her baby bump gave birth to twins on Friday.
Katie Fehlinger posted to Facebook thanking everyone for their positive response after addressing a situation where she was fat shamed for being pregnant.
"However, after someone blatantly called me a 'sausage in casing' and another declared that 'sticking your pregnant abdomen out like that is disgusting,' I felt a need to draw a line and speak up," Fehlinger wrote on her Facebook page. "So this little manifesto of sorts is dedicated to every mother out there - other pregnant moms-to-be, moms reading this while their toddlers play on the swing set, moms whose kids have long since gone off to college... You are beautiful."
Her Facebook post has now received over 7,000 shares and over 95,000 likes. Fehlinger posted a few days before she gave birth, "Just can't believe the outpouring of (now) worldwide support for all moms out there, Thank you all..."
