Asking people to be kind over her changing body, Paloma added: "I am not a skinny pregnant person and I am also high risk in pregnancy so would like to ask the media not to run after me to get unflattering shots as anxiety is detrimental to me and my baby."

Detailing her fertility struggles, she continued: "This child is so wanted, it's my 6th round of IVF and was a struggle to get here. I had a very traumatic first birth and I am also prone to postpartum depression.

"Being a mother is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me but I will swell up and I won't 'glow'! I intend to be very real about this with you all!

"To all the other pregnant women out there who are as in love with their babies as me but simultaneously (expletive) themselves, let's do this."

Paloma welcomed her first child with long-term partner Leyman Lahcine in December 2016. She previously revealed she is raising her child as gender-neutral, but in July she appeared to confirm she had a daughter after referring to her child with female pronouns.
