Being a TV personality and a mother is somewhat tasking, no wonder Sara was quick to respond to the numerous criticism concerning her appearance. She announced that she had had enough and loved her body inside out.

The post featured an image of her colleagues, Strahan, and Keke, in their work attires looking all shades of cute as they flashed smiles at the camera. It also saw Sara in an adorable blue body fitted turtle-neck dress and her curly blond hair.

Her caption, which backfired the trolls who called her pregnant due to her belly pooch, hinted that she was proud of her looks, and she advised that a woman shouldn't be body shamed.

Insinuating that a woman is carrying a child when she's not, is not an acceptable complement to the talk show co-host. She proudly captioned her post:

"I've had three babies, and I love the way I look, little belly pooch & all. It's NOT ok to ask a woman if she's pregnant...you never know what journey someone is on..."

The update featured a slew of remarks with different people stating their thoughts on the sensitive issue. A group of fans shared their experiences and related personally to the post.

One fan explained that her weight made a stranger touch her stomach in public thinking she was soon to welcome a child. Another person praised the post and stated that people should mind their business.

The former "The View" co-host also highlighted that it wasn't all that easy combining her job with parenting, especially when she welcomed her first child.

Other fans concentrated on complementing the chic look of the 42-year-old mom. Fellow journalists, Jenna Hager Bush, and Ginger Zee, expressed in awe how admirable her appearance was. While another commenter gushed on the upload calling Sara's look "amazing" and "gorgeous."

Apart from embracing her body, embracing motherhood is also an essential part of her life. In an interview, the journalist revealed how she and her husband deal with parenting. In her words:

"Max and I are still adjusting to having three kids...But within the chaos, we constantly remind each other to pause and take it all in. We feel lucky."

The former "The View" co-host also highlighted that it wasn't all that easy combining her job with parenting, especially when she welcomed her first child.

Alec was born in 2016, a time when Mrs. Haines needed to be active at her job. However, she and her husband, Max decided to strategize to aid a speedy recovery from delivery and get back on tracks at her workplace.

The couple who said their "I dos" in 2014 have managed to keep their family affair under wraps as they have both sought out ways to parent their kids effectively.
