She is currently expecting her first child with actor Gary Lucy, 41.
And Laura Anderson showed off her growing belly on Friday as she continued her luxury vacation in the Maldives.
The Love Island star, 33, hit back at body shamers and ‘bump police’ as she posed for a storm in a silk mini dress.
She met soap opera star Gary last year during a stint on Celebs Go Dating, with the pair recently splitting after a whirlwind romance.
But after the split — and a lot of drama that followed — she distracted herself by getting away for a while at the luxury private island resort of Ayada Maldives.
Laura’s peachy dress flaunted a plunging neckline and lace embroidery, hugging every inch of her stunning figure.
She showed off her long sun-kissed pins in the snaps and ran her hands through her luscious blonde locks.
She captioned the snap: “Cue the bump police’.
“To the people who have an oddly negative connotation about women rocking their tummy, I will sadly be growing a human inside of me for the next 5 months and most likely won’t know where else to put my hands in a photo.”
“If this is causing anyone serious distress or discomfort, please seek professional help or just get a damn life.”
“It’s quite disturbing how many trolls a pregnant woman gets these days just for breathing.”
“I’m not sure people realize how much stress they can cause BOTH parties. I know I’ve felt it, especially when I went through a disturbing breakup that no one knows the truth about.”
“So let’s step back and give mothers the peace and respect they deserve to focus on the physical and mental wellbeing of themselves and their unborn bundle of joy.”

Laura shared a glimpse into the outing via social media this week and shared a collection of photos from the trip.
Earlier this week, she posed for some photos in a bright pink bathing suit – kayaking while soaking up the sun in Indian Ocean paradise.
The reality TV personality rocked her baby bump and looked off into the distance.
The beauty tied her hair back into two French braids while accessorizing it with dark sunglasses.
Captioning the post, she wrote, ‘Kayak for one’.
Laura shared a series of fun poolside snaps in the Maldives earlier this week, showing off her beautiful pregnant silhouette in a brown bikini.
Her beach vacation comes after Laura confirms she knows her baby’s gender and has already decided on a name.
Laura admitted she’s not ready to announce the news publicly just yet, and will share it “in due time.”
Laura told Goss.ie: ‘I know what I eat and I have a name. I will share in due time… I already did a little one [gender reveal party], but I haven’t shared it publicly yet. But I will soon.’
Laura recently took a swipe at society’s gender norms when she took out her frustration via Instagram Stories.
The beauty wondered why women are treated differently from men when they say they would like to have children.
She claimed that women are labeled “desperate” and “needy” when they want children, comparing this to the label “loving” and “caring” given to men for saying the same thing.
The reality star is currently expecting her first child with actor Gary and has been documenting the pregnancy by sharing updates with her 1.5 million followers.
She and the Hollyoaks star, who met last year while filming Celebs Go Dating, are no longer together and have posted a series of cryptic comments through their respective social media accounts.
While on the train to a hairdressing appointment, she shared her thoughts via a selfie, writing, “I was just thinking.
“How is it in society that when a man says he wants children, he is seen as brave, courageous and loving? But when women say they want children, they are seen as desperate, needy users.’
In February, Laura revealed that she and ex Gary Lucy are “definitely not on good terms” during their recent split drama.
After a whirlwind romance, they announced earlier this month that they are expecting their first child together, but news of their divorce came out soon after.
And during a Q&A on Instagram, she quickly shut down any suggestion that the couple get back together.
Laura simply replied: ‘No’ before saying she ‘hopes that once the baby is here’ she and the Hollyoaks actor can successfully co-parent.
