"I carry big and all out the front! Because of this comments are made from as early as 20 weeks to the tune of, 'Oh u must be nearly due', or 'Are you sure there isn't twins in there', or 'Are you sure everything is ok? Your baby is going to be so big!" she wrote.

Her message was accompanied by a photo that Cass says was "never meant to be shared in the public eye". She is posing in her underwear, taking a selfie of her baby bump at 35 weeks.

Cassie says she was inspired to share her story after hearing about another women who faced judgement from others about the size of her baby bump.

"I felt compelled to put all my insecurities aside and share my bare bump in support of this amazing Mum," she wrte. "Throughout all of my pregnancies I have shown from as early as 5 weeks pregnant. My uterus sits forward which makes for no hiding anything. "The kind of pressure on pregnant women or women in general is NOT OK! Pregnancy and women need to be celebrated NOT ridiculed! What we do is a damn miracle...we create LIFE!"

Cassie announced she was pregnant during the reunion episode of Seven Year Switch, revealing her and Ryan had decided to stay together.

They welcomed daughter Mena Lee one month ago.

The couple are already parents to Cassie's ten-year-old daughter, Ramani, from a previous relationship, 19-month-old daughter Emmerson and a son, Dex, who was stillborn.
