Model gives birth following pregnancy weight controversy

Model Sarah Stage has given birth!

The new mum set the internet abuzz earlier this year when she began posting weekly pregnancy selfies, showing her weekly growth as she awaited her new arrival.

Although her intentions were good, the 30-year-old came under criticism for her barely-there bump, complete with abs even at seven and eight months:

Many followers said that Sarah's size was "unhealthy" and that it would impact the baby's future health, while others defended the model, accusing people of "body shaming" her.

Despite her small bump, Sarah yesterday welcomed a 8lb 7oz baby boy named James Hunter, according to TMZ.

Although she has not yet shared a picture of her new arrival, the model was keeping fans updated as recently as yesterday morning, when she shared a "cravings" picture of a burger and fries meal.
