Chelsea Handler, 48, hits back at critics with sultry bikini snap: 'Iconic'

The comedian divided opinion with her 'child-free' skit last month.

Comedian Chelsea Handler has proved that age is just a number by stripping down to a skimpy bikini during a snowy getaway. The star, 48, looked incredible in a tiny bandeau top made from a Canadian and American flag. She paired the top with a pair of black bottoms and knee-high black socks.

The former Chelsea Lately host was all smiles in a fluffy black hat with a pair of white ski goggles sitting on her head. In the caption, she seemingly dedicated the post to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who was outraged by her child-free skit last month on The Daily Show.

“This one’s for you, Tucker!” she wrote, possibly referring to Tucker’s remarks that her skit was an attempt to “make you feel good about being an ageing, deeply unlikeable woman who never had kids”.

In the polarising sketch, the comedian spoofed the popular ‘Day in the Life’ videos from TikTok and Instagram, listing all the freedom she has by choosing not to have children.


“I put on my most impractical and stylish shoes since I won’t be chasing a child around the grocery store. I go to my fave spot in Paris to grab a croissant," she joked in the video.

"I do a meditation sesh on the plane since I have no screaming kids, allowing me all the time in the world to become enlightened."

Chelsea’s fans went wild over her bikini snap, with many supporting the ‘iconic’ star’s decision to remain child-free.

“You are an inspiration to ALL women! TC doesn’t deserve your energy. I too, will never give birth and I’m f**king stoked about it! Keep being amazing,” one person gushed.


“I’m with you too! Never regretted it. The fkn gender roles and traits pushed at women can eat my farts. Never complied, never will and yep, my friends often are messaging me to say they are jealous not only for no kids, but ditching the men too!” another added.

“Well you don’t look like you are having fun without a husband and children to make you happy!!” a third quipped.

“If I had that body I would ski naked all spring,” another joked.
