Jillian Harris Criticized For Drinking Coffee While Pregnant — She Fires Back!
For some reason, as soon as someone gets pregnant everyone thinks they can chime in about their life choices.
The photos were from the Bachelorette star’s visit to NYC, where she was busy jumping between work gigs and hitting up tourist spots like the Empire State Building.
Can you blame the gal for needing a little pick-me-up? But commenters on Instagram had a lot of judgement. While most have since been deleted, a few remain like, “Easy on the coffee girl!”
And this isn’t the first time she’s received heat for caffeine intake during pregnancy — she also had some harsh responses to the below cup of Joe moment.
Jillian slammed back at the haters in an interview with People, saying, “All of these people are like ‘You shouldn’t be drinking so much caffeine.’ I’m like, well, first of all, it could be decaf.”
She continues, “Second of all, I stopped drinking alcohol, I stopped partying, I don’t do Botox anymore … I’m going to drink my damn coffee!”
Yaaas queen! We love how the 36-year-old spoke up for herself. Who needs all the negativity when you’re focused on bigger things like bringing life into this world?
Unfortunately, this is not the first time she’s had to deal with such nonsense. Jilly also reveals she’s gotten heat for dying her hair while pregnant — something she says she ran by her doctor.
“I’m not an idiot. I’m not stupid, I’m a grown adult. I think I know what’s right and what’s wrong,” she states firmly.
However, in true form for the sweet HGTV star, she does try to see the silver lining of the issue.
“I have to remember that most of the people that are following me are doing it because it comes from a place of love and they’re just trying to show me that they care.”
