Edwina recently shared a snap of herself in a bikini, writing, "I am one of those women who is pregnant all over. Pregnant toes. Pregnant arms. Pregnant legs. Pregnant pigmentation face. Very pregnant belly.

"It’s a big deal for me to wear a bikini but here I am. I’ve decided life is way too short to sweat the bumps, big and small. So this is me… eight months pregnant and about to pop."

She continued, "I’m posting this here so that I can look back in a few months' time and remember how I felt. Maybe non-pregnant me will remember to be kind to myself.

"You might see it too, buy that bikini and not give a flying 🦆 what anyone else thinks."
