The former "Beverly Hills 90210" star took to her official blog this morning to speak out against online critics who say she shouldn't wear a bikini with her growing baby bump.
Spelling says she caught a lot of flack for the skin-showing swimsuits she's been wearing this summer ... but she doesn't care!
"I have to say, I'm super proud of my bump," the 39-year-old writes. "Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that's the greatest gift a woman can experience? A pregnant woman in any shape or size is beautiful!"
She also takes aim at those who say it sets a bad example as a mother.
"I'm making a conscious choice to show my daughters that they can express themselves and be proud as a woman of their bodies," she says. "I don't ever want them to think that they should be ashamed of or self-conscious of their bodies, no matter what shape it's in."
In a new photo, posted today, Tori sports a crocheted top and another bikini -- with the words "Bump Proud" on her belly.
