Mel B: I Love Putting On Weight In Pregnancy

Mel B: I love putting on weight PA
Mel B has revealed she loves putting on weight when she's pregnant - because it is the only time she lets herself 'go'.

The Spice Girl, who is expecting her third child this summer, said that her rapidly expanding body was not just down to baby weight - 'fessing up that she could 'not stop eating'.
Mel was recently spotted strutting her stuff at an LA swimming pool, proudly showing off her bump in a tiny white bikini. But whilst she admitted she likes her pregant body, and enjoys scoffing for two, she is not looking forward to shifting the weight afterwards:

'My ass is so big. I like putting on weight during pregnancy – it's the only time I let things go. But I'm not looking forward to shifting the baby bulge.'

Do you agree with Mel?
Do you 'let things go' when you're expecting? Or should pregnant mums be encouraged to eat sensibly and think of the long term weight gain?
