Jenna Kutcher is a 29-year-old wedding photographer and the host of the Goal Digger podcast, which aims to help female entrepreneurs grow their business.
She also happens to be married to Drew, a health and fitness expert who is known to some as “Mr Six Pack”.
Despite her individual success, it’s her marriage that has the most people talking, as a recent Instagram post from the 29-year-old revealed.
Sharing an image of her and her husband walking along a Hawaii beach in their swimsuits, Jenna shared with her 210,000 followers that someone had “once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as [Drew]”.
Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback. ✨ Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him. ???????? This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always me reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match (and when I haven’t showered in days.) ???????? So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!) ✨ I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you. Double tap if true love doesn’t see size. Photo by: @mrslindseyroman
Jenna said she was “taken aback” by the comment, particularly as it hit on an insecurity she had always had about her body.
“Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself,” she shared.
“Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him.”
But Jenna had an epic response for the follower’s cruel taunt.
LISTEN: Feeling bad about your beach body? Listen to this. Post continues after audio.

Find the one you wanna tackle on the beach. We’re more pancakes on the couch while watching “This is Us” than going out kind of people. ???? We’re more adventures over things and less is really more kinda people. We’re fans of wine tastings that happen on the couch and church on Sunday mornings. ???? We let our dogs sleep under the covers and we list three things we’re thankful for every night before falling asleep. ???????? We’re small town folks with big dreams. We’re going places together and we’re still getting sand out of unmentionable places while we settle back into our little Midwest life. ???? We are wildly filled with gratitude and excited for what’s to come. And yes, I love @kickingitwithkutch! (Have you seen how cute he is?) ???????? What’s the number one thing you look for in finding your partner in crime? Photo by: @mrslindseyroman
Jenna’s inspirational message has now been liked more than 46,000 times, with many offering their own words of support for the entrepreneur.
“On every single one of your photos whether your with your hubby or on your own the things I see is your radiant smile and pure happiness,” one follower wrote.
“Those of us who are blessed enough to have met their ‘one’ know that love is not materialistic, nor is it shallow. You are inspirational for speaking out about body shaming,” another shared.
“If I could love this post 100 times over I would!”
I crave a love so deep, the ocean would be jealous…. I also crave margaritas, carbs, smooshed noses and sloppy kisses. ???? It’s almost been a month since we got here and good heavens, time is flying by. I am so thankful we black out time to slow down and dream (and kiss!) Island life is good for my soul. ???????? We jumped in the ocean and splashed around and today @mrslindseyroman blogged our Hawaii sesh. Check it out and tell me what ya think!
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle about her post, Jenna said the troll’s comments spoke to one of her – and many other women’s – biggest insecurities.
“I think deep down, as women, our biggest fear is that we aren’t enough, that our bodies are broken,” she said.
“Drew is a babe. I know that, I see that, I love that. And to me, he’s the most handsome man on the planet.
“Since I have always struggled with weight, it’s sometimes hard being married to a man with muscles and a six-pack. I see the way people stare at him on the beach and the narrative in my head sounds like, ‘Why should you deserve a man like him? You’re fat, he should be with someone so much better looking’.
“I tend to write stories for what I believe people are thinking — when, in reality, I know they probably aren’t thinking a thing.”
