We’ve always been big fans of fitness expert Emily Skye. She offers up great motivation and inspiration with her killer physique. Plus, she’s never been afraid of getting honest about uncomfortable issues. And if you thought that would change when Skye announced her pregnancy, think again. The fitness star recently took to her Instagram to discuss some of the less pleasant aspects of pregnancy in a real and honest post that we absolutely love.

Skye got real and upfront about some aspects of pregnancy that aren’t usually discussed.

In particular, the body positive fitness expert opened up about how she’s gaining fat and cellulite as she heads through her pregnancy — and that she’s just fine with it. In the lengthy and refreshingly candid post, Skye discussed how her body is changing as her pregnancy goes forward, and how some aspects are less exciting than others.

Skye also shared a close-up photo of her new figure (and the accompanying cellulite).

She was quick to stress that none of this was about competing with other people or comparing her body to others; it was simply a chance to be honest and upfront about how the body can change during pregnancy.

We applaud Skye for her honesty and bravery about what can be a pretty touchy and taboo subject. Way to keep it real — and congratulations on your upcoming arrival!
