Maura Higgins has been praised by fans after posting a relatable picture of herself carrying what looked like a pregnancy bump, but was in fact, bloating from her Christmas meal.
The Love Island star, who recently enjoyed a romantic holiday with new boyfriend Chris Taylor, took to her Instagram stories to share the short video clip with her fans, lifting her top up to unveil her stomach.
Smiling into the camera, she asked her 3.1m followers to vote on whether it was a real baby or if it was a ‘food baby’ as she posed in a pair of grey, striped pyjamas.

And after what looked like an almost unanimous vote of ‘food baby’ the reality star went on post a screenshot of the array of replies she got.
Clearly impressed with Maura’s honesty, the posts praised the star for ‘keeping it real’ and making them feel better about their own bodies during this festive period.
One wrote: “This has really helped me today thank you xxx” while another added: “This made me feel a bit better! You’re beautiful.”
Maura wrote alongside the screenshot: “we’re all feeling that Christmas bloat then!” before adding: “I genuinely do forget that this is the content you guys really love to see. I’m really going to try and show you more real stuff in the new year as I know it’s important.
“Especially for the younger generation on social media.”
Maura recently went public with her boyfriend Chris – another love Island star – after the pair fell in love after a year-long friendship.
Confirming the news on their respective Instagram accounts, fans of the joker pair were over the moon.
