Kim Zolciak's half-naked baby bump selfie: Do or don't?
I realize not everyone wants to see a big, bare, pregnant belly in their social media feeds, but there is something about seeing the bod of a favored celebrity--with child or not--that appeals to the masses. So I wasn't at all surprised to see that Real Housewives of Atlanta star and soon-to-be mom of six Kim Zolciak shared a photo of her bikini clad baby bump on Instagram, to the tune of more than 27,000 likes. And you know what? I don't hate it.

I mean, honestly, just about anything is an improvement from how we saw her a few months ago--toking on a cigarette while sporting a belly full of twins. In fact, the way she's captioned her latest selfie gives me hope that she's kicked that nasty and dangerous habit in favor of healthier ones. "Going swimming with the kiddos! The pool makes me feel so much lighter! This belly #twins #excited #blessed #nofilter," she said.
Actually, I have to confess that I kind of love big, pregnant bellies--they are such an awesome symbol of the miracle of life, and that is a beautiful thing. While I was pregnant, I shared vacation photos of myself wearing a bikini and I even uncovered my belly in my bi-weekly belly progression photos. The way I see it, if someone doesn't like it they have every right to hide the photos from their news feed or defriend/unfollow whomever is posting them--no offense taken.
Granted, Zolciak's bikini looks a whole lot like lingerie, so that may have caused some initial shock, but I'm betting that most of her Instagram followers thought her picture was pretty cute.
