Pregnant Hilaria Baldwin says she’s completely at peace with gaining weight while sharing a revealing selfie.

On Friday, the yoga instructor and wife of Alec Baldwin Instagrammed the mirror snap of herself wearing a bra and a robe, writing in the caption, “6 months with Baldwinito #4! I have to remind myself every day how working out and eating well while pregnant will mean that I will have an easier pregnancy, delivery, and recovery. I let myself slow down, but try to do an activity almost every day where I keep my circulation going, maintain flexibility, and tone muscles.”

The 34-year-old wrote, “I’m also completely at peace with the fact that I WILL gain weight, cellulite WILL happen, my body NEEDS fat and rest in order to grow a healthy baby. Through 4 pregnancies, I have found balance and calm — embracing natural changes in my body, yet taking care of myself in a way where these changes are temporary, and once the baby is out, I will find my non pregnant self again. Please talk to me and to each other about your experiences with this, questions, and advice — no negativity—this is a namaste place.”

To eradicate concerns that the photo was doctored, Hilaria added, “In full disclosure, there is no filter, but I did brighten up the image a bit since the bathroom in this hotel doesn’t have strong light.”

Hilaria and Alec, who are expecting a baby boy, are parents of three children, Carmen Gabriele, 4-and-a-half, Rafael Thomas, 2-and-a-half, and Leonardo Ángel Charles 1. “I never knew how many kids I wanted to have,” Hilaria told PEOPLE in November. “I didn’t know how much I’d like it. And I really, really like it.”

But Hilaria has taken heat for sharing sexy selfies and aspirational yoga shots while pregnant, which some have likened to body-and-mom shaming. In 2016, one day after giving birth to her third child, she posed for a photo in her bra and underwear, writing, “…It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self-esteem….” along with a vow to get “back in shape.”

Some were offended by the suggestion that Hilaria needed to shape up, especially so soon after delivery. “Nervous about what?? wrote an Instagram commenter. “You were perfect before, during and you’re perfect now lol… you’re slim and you don’t represent other women at all.”

Hilaria has also been slammed for having a large family and in November, she addressed her critics on Instagram, writing, “I have read a few comments about why we like having so many children that made me laugh…some say it must be a religious thing—it’s not. Some say it’s because I want all of Alec’s money—babies are expensive, so I don’t see how that makes any sense. Plus, like any married couple, it’s all “ours.” After nearly 7 years together, 5 plus years of marriage, and almost 4 kids: aren’t we over that yet???”

She continued, “Here is why we like having babies: they are simply so lovely and bring so much joy. Plus, I feel like we need to populate this world with a whole next generation of really good people. My little Baldwinitos are such good souls and I hope they continue to grow and make this world a better place.”
