Browsing through Australian fitness model Chontel Duncan’s Instagram, there is no denying that she looks absolutely stunning, pregnant or not. But it is this image of Chontel posing beside her friend, Natalie Smith, that has the world talking.
Why? Because in this photo both of these beautiful women are pregnant. Both are carrying healthy babies. And both are due in March.
These two women, who are only four weeks apart in their pregnancies, have become overnight ambassadors for healthy pregnancy, proving that pregnancy is certainly not a one-size-fits-all experience.
The image, taken back in November when Chontel was 21 weeks pregnant with baby one and Natalie was approximately 25 weeks pregnant with her third child, captures a truly beautiful moment between friends.
As Chontel writes on her Instagram, “I was surprised with a cute visit today from a friend Nat who is also expecting. Each [woman] carries different and this most certainly doesn’t mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy etc. We both have healthy growing babies & we both have had incredible pregnancies so far, feeling amazing & full of energy.”
Chontel is now 37 weeks pregnant and recently shared an updated image where she looks fantastic. And her equally glowing friend, Nat welcomed her third child, a baby boy, five weeks ago, one month before her due date.
Congratulations to these two friends who will have a lifetime of play dates ahead of them!
