The 30-year-old also explained that she wants to use her pregnancy to continue changing the perception of plus-size women in society.

"Plus-size women face so much stigma and doubt over what our bodies are capable of," she said. "It's something I feel doesn't get enough media attention, but I hope that the next few months of my pregnancy will help change the conversation. All bodies are amazing!"

Holliday has a 10-year-old son, Rilee, from a previous relationship.
