The blonde, who has battled body image issues all her life, also revealed that pregnancy has taught her about the importance of self-love.

“I definitely have a lot more acceptance than I’ve ever had. Is it perfect? No. But it’s a work in progress, and being pregnant has definitely challenged me and I think a lot of women will relate to that,” she said.

DeAraugo, who has undergone years of therapy for her mental health issues, admitted she still has days when she’s not confident and “don’t like what she sees,” but has learned to overcome these feelings by “practising kindness.”

The couple announced their pregnancy via Facebook in May and uploaded this photo of themselves sitting on the grass with a photo of their baby’s ultrasound.

“My biggest hope is that I can raise a little person to be who I am today, and that I don’t have to go through all the insecurities I went through as a child and adult,” DeAraugo told Woman’s Day magazine this week.

The former reality star said she also leans on her beau Riseley for support during difficult times.

‘I’m a big proponent of therapy and being able to talk to people. I think everyone should have a person deep down inside. I couldn’t do it all alone. I had to help make sense of things,” she said.

The couple met in 2019 through dating app Bumble. Riseley had no idea she was famous when they met.
